V.Williams v (Q) C.Gauff
I knew they were going to do this. This youngster was going to face Sloane, Serena or Venus.
You still believe the draw is random?

Please Venus, withdraw at the last minute. You played enough Wimbledon at t his point. You don't need this mess. But they wanted to guaranty she plays one of the Williams sisters. I could understand if you run into her in later rounds.

Top half is loaded. These draws are ugly.

Haha, the draw is live... no computers but old-fashioned and everyone can check it... I heard it live on Wimbledon-radio: tokens with numbers that rattle when taken out of a bag....

Quite funny: so many complain that the computer-draws are fixed against their favorites, but the only old-fashioned drawing ceremony results in the worst draw of the year for their player(s).

That 1st Quarter could have been the complete Quarterfinal Line-Up with Barty, Muguruza, Vekic, Riske, Bencic, Kerber, Serena and Görges.

The top half is sooo much stronger.
The first quarter is BY FAR the strongest: Barty, Serena, Kerber

Some pathetic weak R1 matches:
Q Rodionova vs Townsend
WC Dart vs LL McHale

oh yeah? did you see them draw Venus' or Gauff's name? or were the names already on the board in the morning?

The most unlucky person here is Barty, her section is the worst. Typically number 1s have an easy first week.
Overall the draw was well thought out. :lol: :lol:
We will be entertained from day 1.

I heard the draw live on the radio - iot took 25 minutes.
The commenters saw it happen...

First they drew 3-4
Then 5-8
Then 9-12
Then 13-16
Then 17-24
Then 25-32

After that, the 96 remaining tokens - each with a number - were put in a bag and drawn one by one, filling the draw from top to bottom.
Each number and name were read out, one after the other one.

This is the draw that you always want: in public, no computer, the old-fashioned way. But that does not guarantee a good outcome...

If the entire draw is done openly, I will never have problem with the result. Take the computer out of the system. With a computer, it's too easy to create desired match-ups.

What I despise is the 3-AM-Computer-Draw we wake up to, when 3/4 :) :) of the draw is already filled in. We are left to believe that placing the last 32 players is fair. That's a cheat.
