Montreal draw is out!

http://www.rogerscup.com/common/Trac...04/806/MDS.pdf

Jen and Serena wound up in the same quarter (when don't they) but it's very likely Serena's going to pull out. I would guess Jen is ready to play since she usually pulls out before the draw is made.

I'm not sure it's quite that reasonable. She could end up facing Mary, Vera, Elena, Amelie, and either J-Cap or Serena (if she attends); in that order. That's a pretty scary draw in my opinion.

These two just always seem to draw each other, it's truly a weird twist of fate. Serena will pull put which should open the draw up very nicely for Jennifer. She has a great chance of making the finals. She always plays well in Canada

It's tough, but better than the 4 Grand Slam Champions back to back (Venus, Myskina, Serena, Davenport) that Maria faced in the original draw for San Diego.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

True; that was one whacked out original draw for San Diego!

After Maria's relatively decent draw at Wimbledon leading up to the SFs and Final; it doesn't look like things will be easy for Maria from hear on out with regards to her draws in big events. Wonder what her draw for New Haven and the U.S. Open will be like.

Actually Maria's draw for Wimbledon gave her Myskina, Sugiyama, Davenport and Venus. Myskina was replaced by Frazier, but I still wouldn't call that too weak a draw.

New haven will probably see a lot of withdrawals IMO, because of the Olympics, so may not be too bad.

The US Open with 32 seeds and rest days between matches will hopefully take the sting out of any ugly draws. However players under-ranked because of injury time-outs (Venus, Serena, Kim) could unbalance the draw.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

Serena won't play. Jennifer...she sort of needs to play something before Athens...

Atrixo, Maria's Wimbledon draw doesn't look easy if you project the highest seeds into the corresponding round like you're doing with this draw. The Wimbledon draw fell apart, and I can almost guarantee this one won't wind up as you projected it. It just usually doesn't.

I don't actually think this is a very hard draw for her at all. It's a Tier I, afterall.

K-Lina vs Maureen will probably be on tv. That's the match I want to see.
