Hlavackova and Hradecka have been in all three Grand Slam semis so far this year including making the Wimbledon final. They definately deserve a place in the top 4 seeds. So I'd put them above Kirilenko/Petrova. Aside from that one change, I'm with you.

I kept the seedings what they should be based on rankings with the exception of Venus/Serena who without a doubt should be top 2. This is what I think will happen by the ITF. I do get your point about Hlavackova/Hradecka though (however a little unfair to Petrova/Kirilenko who were injured at Aussie and had WS in R2 at Wimbledon).

Re: Olympics : Who would be your Top 8 seeds?

Considering the rule about teams from the same nation not being in the same half, and assuming they won't seed Venus and Serena below 4th, I hope they give them 2nd seed. That should keep them away from Sara and Roby.


I'd just go by ranking with the seeding, at least I'd seed the first 7 teams in the ranking, and then I'd put Venus and Serena somewhere among the first 3.

This must be a joke

Basically everyone except Huber/Raymond, Kirilenko/Petrova and Pennetta/Schiavone can get Venus/Serena in the first round now.

Re: Olympics : Who would be your Top 8 seeds?

yeah that's the best way to seed doubles players
anyway ...
they never/barely play together / V&S are multiple Slam winners and just won Wimbledon
very logical...

CONCHITA-LINDSAY-MARY-HINGIS

KATA - AMG -
APS

Serena- Garcia- Hercog- KDK- Daniilidou- Puig- Muguruza...
