This draw sucks
Bottom half much stronger than top half ...

Lindsay w/ cakewalk draw. Nastya w/ cakewalk draw but she will probably lose her first match

What will Serena's form be for this tourney? Will she still be injured as in Paris ?

Great draw for venus imo. She'll eat kuznetsova for breakfast, and a semi against molik/serena/hantuchova (who will probably upset molik) will be a great test for her. Can't wait!

Long Live Queen Vee

Really a fantastic draw! We rarely see such a level of players in tier II!

This draw is really bottom heavy!

DAMN Alicia drawn to meet Serena in the QF's

It's a tier I right?

Great draws in Doha and Dubai, really. I like when the top-players are in a 32-draw, really....

Actually Alicia has the toughest draw of anyone... Assuming she goes as far as she could here's who she'd have to beat

1r: Hantuchova
2r: Likhovtseva
QF: Serena Williams
SF: Venus/Kuznetsova
F: Davenport/Myskina

for me the best match from round 1 has to be Molik v.s Hantuchova.
