Seed? What’s a Seed?

Something is already in the air in Sydney. Seeds are dropping like flies. The WTA seems to be about 99% more crazy and unpredictable than it was last year- so buckle up.

First it was #7 seed JJ, losing to qualifier Szavay in 3 sets. I just think this picture is hilarious. So full of drama.

FFS, JJ. I’m thisclose to not caring anymore. And you’re supposed to be one of my faves. And are those sweat stains or did she douse herself with water? I don’t get it.

In the next match, because my curse will never wear off, the inevitable happened. #8 seed Bepa retired from her match against Szavay at 3-3 in the first set.

Too effing bad.

#4 seed Caro was up next. A very routine first set had me thinking the match was in the bag for Caro. I was dead wrong. WTA predictions are useless. Li won 2-6 6-3 6-2.

 I wasn’t able to see the match past the first set because the stream cut out for the day, so I’m just wondering what happened. Was Caro crap or was Na on fire? /confused.

The final match of the day was #6 seed Vika, taking on a tough first round opponent, Sabine. Needless to say: I was worried. Again, I was streamless (FU tennis gods!), so I’m not sure exacxly what happened, but I am sure it was hilarious. They split sets, and then 4 straight breaks brought the final set to 2-2. Sabine served for the match at 5-4, but Vika won the next 3 games to take the match 3-6 6-2 7-5.

YES. The seed massacre ended just in time to save Vika. I need this awesome bitch around this week, now that JJ and Caro are gone.


Remaining seeds Dina. Serena, Kuz and Lena D are up tomorrow. Any predictions on those matches? I say one will lose.  This seed massacre thing is just too contagious.
