Welcome Sarah

Glad you´re here too

I'll have to look in the morning coz I really need some sleep right now - it's 1:30am.

No need to worry about Vika, she was a first round upset But if the stars line up, you'll have to endure Maria for a French title run

I know, she tanked her way to a loss against dulko, who then lost to Scheepers in the 2nd r. (I've been in Paris for the tennis the last 5 days).

No it didn`t, but hopefully it will at Wimbledon, which starts next week.

Hate to say it, but it's probably gonna be a Williams sister who wins Wimby.

You could be right sadly Sarah. However i`m still holding out hope that Maria can rise up and end their reign much like she did back in 2004. If not Maria, then Caroline and Vika. Plus it wouldn`t be too much for Ana to get a couple of wins at the All England Club.

I'd be OK if Caroline won, the others...not so much. It seems we have totally different female players to cheer for. Although it's not like my faves are gonna win a GS any time soon - they are mostly not even top 20 players.

I've felt that Caroline was going to be the next one to break thru for a title, but then she got booted in round one in her most recent tournament. She's usually pretty good in the early rounds.

Yeah that was a bit of a surprise in Eastbourne...but who knows, maybe she'll do better at Wimby.

I`ve had a bad feeling about Caroline`s first round match at Eastbourne, which was against Aravane Rezai, who had been playing well lately. Hopefully she can shake if off and go on a nice run at Wimbledon, which starts on Monday.

That's true, I had forgotten she played Aravane, so that upset is not so bad because Aravane really has been playing well lately!

I'll be at Wimby probably Tues/Wed/Thurs.

I don't think I could watch Tennis live, I guess it depends how close I was to the court.
