Post Is it possible...

that the number one seed at the Australian Open, which is obviously Lindsay Davenport, can play Mary Pierce in the 1st Round? I think its possible because Mary is a wild-card. IS IT?????

Venus ~ Serena ~ Nadal

Possible but unlikely

Its not cos she's a WC but cos she is unseeded.

slightly more possible than it would have been this time last year....

still, a match like that would at least guarentee us some sort of early round women's action on tv.

in fact mary has a 50-50 chance of meeting a seed in the first round <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" />

all because she's not a seed

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

According to the AO website, the seeds will be announced on January 10th. So, the Sydney results won't count as far as AO seeding is concerned.

Of course it is possible!

Remember OZ when Lindsay faced Jelena Dokic? Venus Williams vs. Barbara Schett at Roland Garros?

By the way, I'd love to see this match! First round, so exciting! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

All the best to Anastasia Myskina, Elena Bovina and Svetlana Kuznetsova!
Watch out: Myriam Casanova, Maria Kirilenko and Maria Sharapova!

Correction Mary Pierce has a 1 in 4 chance of meeting any of the 32 seeds, and a 1 in 8 chance of meeting a top 16 seed, and a 1 in 16 chance of meeting a top 8 seed!
