Question Will Pierce be seeded in Melbourne?

I know Mary got a wild card into the Australian Open but I was wondering if she will be seeded there also because of her ranking protection?

thnks

I don't think so.

I hope so. She is too dangerous if she is underseeded.

I don't believe she received any kind of injury ranking or anything. Even if she did though, she wouldn't be seeded, because of her actual ranking of 129. However, they might do what they did at Wimbledon in 1998.. Graf had fallen to 91st in the world, but they gave her the fourth seed. However, I don't think they will seed her. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

I don't think Mary will be seeded. I read somewhere that the organisers were a little peeved as she had a choice of wildcards, ie one that goes to the French player on the basis the French Open gives one to an Australian at the French Open or just a wildcard. She opted for the latter and they would have preferred her to take the other that way they could have given another one to another Aussie player. I can't see how they could seed her if they did anyway.

Question

Ok another question then. If Mary is being injury protection, why could she not be seeded if others like Monica and Steffi have in the past?

Wasn't Mary a top-15 player before she stopped playing?

Mary is not

look in statistics forum, you'll see a full explanation there <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> plus other rulings i've dug up.

Mary is a former slam champ but she isn't listed as one of the 20 Gold Exempt players for 2002.
