Olympics draw out!

Wimbledon part 2! Finally, after the lull of Wimbledon, we return back to London for one of the year's most important event! The Olympics! This once every 4 years event is definitely something special and you can see a lot of players planning their year around this. Should make for great drama and tennis! :)

Azarenka (BLR) - Begu (ROM)
Martinez Sanchez (ESP) - Hercog (SLO)
Tatishvili (GEO) - Vogt (LIE)
Zheng (CHN) - Petrova (RUS)
Errani (ITA) - Williams, V. (USA)
Erakovic (NZL) - Wozniak (CAN)
Voskoboeva (KAZ) - Babos (HUN)
Cetkosvka (CZE) - Kerber (GER)

Williams, S. (USA) - Jankovic (SRB)
Barthel (GER) - Radwanska, U. (POL)
Schiavone (ITA) - Zakopalova (CZE)
Arvidsson (SWE) - Zvonareva (RUS)
Li (CHN) - Hantuchova (SLK)
Cornet (FRA) - Paszek (AUT)
Medina Garrigues (ESP) - Wickmayer (BEL)
Keothavong (GBR) - Wozniacki (DEN)

Stosur (AUS) - Suarez Navarro (ESP)
Clijsters (BEL) - Vinci (ITA)
Szavay (HUN) - Baltacha (GB)
Mchale (USA) - Ivanovic (SRB)
Lisicki (GER) - Jabeur(TUN)
Halep (ROM) - Shvedova (KZa)
Martic (SLO) - Safarova (CZE)
Peer (ISR) - Sharapova (RUS)

Kvitova (CZE) - Bondarenko (UKR)
Hsieh (TPE) - Peng (CHN)
Cirstea (ROM) - Pennetta (ITA)
Pironkova (BUL) - Cibulkova (SLK)
Kirilenko (RUS) - Duque Marino (COL)
Soler espinosa (ESP) - Watson (GB)
Lepchenko (USA) - Cepede Royg (PAR)
Goerges (GER) - Radwanska (POL)

Interesting first round encounters between Hsieh and Peng... Chinese Taipei and China is not exactly on peaceful term. Let's hope the fans don't get too carried away in that match. A lot of walking byes featured in this tournament due to some dodgy wildcard decisions. So expect Kirilenko, Tatishvili, Baltacha and Lepchenko to cruise through.


Victoria Azarenka vs. Angelique Kerber
Serena Williams vs. Li Na
Kim Clijsters vs. Maria Sharapova
Petra Kvitova vs. Agnieszka Radwanska

Victoria Azarenka vs. Serena Williams
Maria Sharapova vs. Petra Kvitova

Serena Williams vs. Maria Sharapova

Venus Williams will sadly bow out to the steady Kerber even though this is Williams' best surface. The unpredictable Julia Goerges may have a chance of upsetting the 2nd seed, but it's highly unlikely. A potential rematch of Sharapova vs Lisicki in the 3rd round and I fully expect Maria to take revenge for her shock loss in Wimbledon. And finally, the grand finale should be the 2 biggest names in women's tennis fighting it out for the gold medal. Given the stakes, we can be ensured nail-biting drama if this happens! Let's hope for a wonderful event at the Olympics! :D
