Rome Draw! Quite Interesting!
I can't find the official draw yet, but here is a link:

http://www.internazionalibnlditalia.com/...-draw.aspx

Interesting match ups potentially! Serena could play Venus in round 2.

Full draw here: http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-Archi...09/MDS.pdf

Serena has a pretty loaded quarter, but Vika lands on the Maria side of things with Li and Kerber on the Serena side of things. A potential Kvitova vs. Vika match up should it happen!

Well, she should at least be able to win her first round match Jovanovski. One of our Caro friends says that Jovanovski is on an eight match losing streak. Not that Caro is doing much better with a 1- 4 record for her last five matches.

She always bounces back with a strong showing after an early exit.

Well, if she's 1-4 in her last 5 matches, that would mean she doesn't always bounce back with a strong showing, no?

But, I'd like to see Caroline have a good week.

She did that in Indian Wells but not since.

I feel bad for Daniela, having to play qualifying.

I will list the qualifiers once they are decided.

Some interesting matches settingup in Rome. Serena has a tough draw and she needs to play all of these opponents, so that she is ready for RG.

Agreed.. Venus needs play every grass court tuneup available, serve and volley 40-45 % of the time and she can may make it to the 2nd week.. if not, she will be Serena's extra practice partner for the rest of the summer

I agree with this, it's heartbreaking to see her exit in the first round.

Watch out people, JJ is hot, she is handing out bagles now!
Latest victim was Pironkova.

What an amazing tennis match between Bojana Jovanovski against Carolina Wozniacki and what a great performance Bojana made. Down and out several times but she fought her way back in and finally stood there as the winner in the end 26, 64, 76. The TV commentator said several times that Caroline would take it and his money was on her but in the end he too had to surrender.
What a fighter!!! What a match!!!!
