    Ladies' Picks and Results Thread - Wimbledon

    Welcome to the Picks and Results thread. First and foremost, we here at TaT encourage you to check this thread before making your daily picks to help ensure you don't duplicate one of your previous choices. It is also the best method by which to check that we haven't been in error with your selections. Both of these things happen.

    Below are the record-setting 361 entrants (we, sadly, lost two already to invalid options from the top half of the draw whose names are not listed below) who hope to beat the draw.

    And as always, once you're red, you'll be... blue

    Re: Ladies' Picks and Results Thread - Wimbledon

    Yes, well, we had quite the turnout this tournament, didn’t we? Why not. It is The Championships, after all. It should by all accounts be the most well-attended of the slams. This time around we are 361 strong. Right then, on with the breakdown, and may your pick not make you have one.

    Leading the charge, quite rightly, is:

    Miss Tamarine Tanasugarn (58) – Yes, yes. Good choice. One just hopes that winning the title last week in s’Htanasugarnwonbosch didn’t take too much out of her.

    Following closely behind in support is the leggy

    Miss Daniela Hantuchova (53) – Be silenced you all. Laura Robson will prevail, bestowing glory onto fair Britannia!

    And, in turn, the others:

    Miss Lucie Safarova (37) – Groth née Gajdosova may prove to be more difficult than Lucie (or the masses who have chosen her) would like.

    Miss Urszula Radwanska (26) – Radwanska the Lesser may have drawn a virtual unknown, but one can’t be too appreciative of her winning of just two games on grass last week.

    Miss Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (20) – The draw gods have not favored the Russian, though she has caught a little break in the first round against an opponent whose best slam was the French last year.

    Miss Zheng Jie (16) – Last year’s semifinalist has been relegated to being casually thrown away at the word go. This is likely due to a draw that may consist of Hantuchova, Tanasugarn, and Serena Williams just beyond round one. Too bad.

    Miss Gisela Dulko (13) – Her most significant Wimbledon result was getting Bremonded back in 2006, and though she’s drawn the rarest of species, a bespectacled player in Stephanie Foretz, Miss Dulko often finds a way to make those who considered her worthy lament ever believing.

    Miss Nadia Petrova (13) – She has drawn “compatriot” Sharapova in the early rounds again. I agree with this decision. Has drawn a wooly Himalayan beast of burden in round one.

    Miss Alisa Kleybanova (12) – There is an awful lot of support for someone who has not done well as of late and faces brainless Kazakh(?) Karatantcheva who will be attempting, no doubt, to “kick her ass off”. Good luck keeping your buttocks intact, Alisa.

    Miss Shahar Pe’er (11) – Last year I rather thought she wouldn’t achieve much, only to be proven wrong with a fourth round showing here. Though I daresay it will be difficult for her to achieve at the same level fresh off injury.

    Miss Aravane Rezai (10) – Yes, she had a nice run at the French, but never underestimate Japanese opponents, who seem to love the grass so very much.

    Miss Timea Bacsinszky (9) – The raccoon-owl has been off the radar for a bit and drawn a qualifier. Might be a difficult opening round match. Contrarian to the Manasieva pick.

    Miss Nathalie Dechy (9) – Stupid let cord.

    Miss Alexandra Wozniak (9) – This is the quarter of the draw where the surprises could happen. Could achieve more than is expected of her. Or, I guess, less.

    Miss Sorana Cirstea (8) – Fellow countrywoman Gallovits probably has had the same amount of grass court success as her young opponent.

    Miss Magdalena Rybarikova (8) – You would have thought this would be a good pick, I know, her having won Birmingham and all, but since I selected her and have failed as of yet to get out of Day 1 at these wretched things this year, we will surely all perish.

    Miss Karolina Sprem (7) – We don’t know a lot about her qualifier opponent Kulikova, but we do know about Sprem’s grass court success. Should be enough, right?

    Miss Vera Zvonareva (7) – Lots of questions about her ability coming back from injury.

    Miss Virginie Razzano (4) – Fourth round finish at the French Open followed by a final at the Eastbourne warmup grass court tournament makes Razzano a serious threat in a potential weak section of the draw.

    Miss Marion Bartoli (4) – She retired against Razzano in the semifinals just four days ago. Bartoli in the final it is!

    Miss Alizé Cornet (3) – She’ll be Dushevinaed, for sure.

    Grandma Jill Craybas (3) – Has about 40 years on young Pironkova, so she’ll be drawing on all that experience to get her through. Go Jill!

    Miss Michelle Larcher de Brito (3) – What? WHAT?? NEVER MIND.

    Miss Maria Sharapova (3) – Sure, she wins this one, but do we really think she’s not a threat to go deep into the draw?

    Miss Elena Vesnina (3) – Might have some difficulties against Wickmayer, who has had some nice grass court victories leading up to Wimbledon.

    Miss Victoria Azarenka (2) – Can her recent success on the hardcourts translate to the grass. Very likely, for a couple of rounds at least.

    Miss Dominika Cibulkova (2) – Can’t see Julie Coin troubling her much.

    Miss Anna-Lena Groenefeld (2) – Plays Mirza.

    Miss Sania Mirza (2) – Plays Groenefeld.

    And the singletons:

    Miss Elena Dementieva – Was last year’s semifinal the exception or the rule?

    Miss Mathilde Johansson – Knocked me out of the French this year. Go away, Mathilde.

    Miss Vesna Manasieva – I’ll admit I know nothing about her. Contrarian to the Bacsinszkys.

    Miss Ai Sugiyama – Ai had the distinction of being one of the very best Day 1 picks, with quite a remarkable success rate, but that has calmed down now. Though against Schnyder- who is rotten on the grass- Sugi may have been a nice pick.

    Miss Yanina Wickmayer – How far can she go on her favorite surface?

    I can't believe I picked URad. I also can't quite believe 25 other people did too.

    Of course, since I questioned how well she'd fare, she'll win 0 and 1 in 27 minutes.

    She's already improved 200% on last week. As long as she wins, I ain't complainin'...
    Coach Marion, at your service!
