her ranking will drop, i believe she made Rd 16 last year didn't she? And now highest seed for venus is Paola Suarez
Nah she lost to Nadia Petrova in the 2nd round here last year. So she won't lose anything at all.
It ain't matter whether it's Paola or Ai who is the highest ranked left in Vee's quarter as neither of them would have any chance to challenge vee.
