What Should Venus Seeded In Paris?

I say at least #4 because for one she recently reached the final there and has not lost any clay matches in almost 52 weeks!

This includes a 15 match winning streak on clay.

No.1 maybe? She's a clay specialist and at the moment is the best on clay on the tour. I understand a lot of ppl disagree with me but I certainly believe she deserves it.

Hmmmm...tough question.

For me top 4 would be

1. JHH (Defending Champ)
2. Serena (On her day clearly the best player on tour)
3. Venus (2nd best player on tour)
4. Molik (hehehe.....I'm kidding...but looks nice )

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******

But Is It the kind of injury easily "re-aggravated" (thus putting her favourite Surface Slam @ risk)?

They tend to it at Wimbeldon more than anywhere else though.

Venus should be in the top 4 with JHH, Serena and Amelie. Its not too important if its 3 or 4, not like it makes any difference.

Myskina * Henin-Hardenne * Zvonerava

Davenport - Dementieva

They don't generally manipulate the seedings in Paris though I don't think.
