Not like Myskina is a top player, I know I'll get bashed for that, oh well, but Venus/Masha is understandable, and Serena vs. Masha is as well...

So if Venus wants to win this tournament.
She has to beat Dulko then it'll be a hard road if she is to win, she has to beat
Pierce/Sharapova/Myskina/Serena/Lindsay, that's 5 slam winners in a row.
Now you know how much simpler Venus' life is with the special seeding.

Compared to Venus's, Serena's draw is a cakewalk, all the seeds in her quarter are not natural hardcourt players. And her seed in the semi is Nastya with Lindsay and Amelie on the other half. I say it's a grace from the tennis god.

If Serena has a Wimby rematch with Sharky (and/or Venus plays her) let's NOT let it turn into another racewar, Whoever Wins! And Admins, I Strongly Suggest you schedule your time spent online 2B here "live" and prevent/delete that crap post haste if necessary.

I am not bashing you, I just think you need a reality check.

She may be in the Top 10, and have beaten great players at RG, she won't on hardcourts...

Finally, it might be a pretty good draw for Maria : Venus is uncertain and Serena seems to have trouble recovering her best tennis, so maybe Maria is the favourite to be in the final, after all.

Ahhh...you never know. I do understand why a lot of people share your opinion, I mean she doesn´t really has that typical Serena-Venus-Lindsay ("I´m gonna kill you with my brutal power and nothing else")- hardcourt game and she really sucked last year at the summer US-hardcourt season, but you shouldn´t forget that she actually reached the semis of Indian Wells and won Doha (again) this year, so she isn´t actually that "bad" on faster surfaces.

We will see, but no matter what happens she really doesn´t have so many points to defend.
