Venus' RG seed

I have it calculated to be about 14. She is losing 300+ points from Charleston, 311 from Warsaw, and 286 from Berlin. Assuming no one else loses or gains significant points, 1750-1800 points would put her right behind Patty Schnyder at 14. Is this correct? I hope not. That would mean we could have a Venus vs. Serena R16 ...

Juju and Kim might even grab top 8 seeds the way they're going. Certianly they'll be in the 9-12 range at least, meaning they won't face Davvy, Masha, Serena or Amelie early on. That's cool.

this whole tournament is gonna be a mess........and do you honestly think kim and justine are gonna be in the top 10 by roland garros......thats wishful thinking.......i remember venus saying that there is still time for her to enter another event so hopefully she will and she will be top 12.........otherwise she is gonna draw maria,serena,amelie,lindsay in rd. of 16 and the only good scenario would be to draw momo

Juju and Kim surely wont be top-8 seeds

This draw will be soooo bad...Well good in a sense, with great early matches, but it will suck cause some players will lose early even though they would ahve done great...

BTW, I don't think that being in the 9-12 seed range assures you of not facing 1-4 in the R16, wasn't Venus like 9 or 10 when she faced Davenport in the Us Open rnd of 16? And Davenport was ranked high by then.....I just think people from 9-16 can face any player in the r16!

Venus could easily win Istanbul, so she'll be gaining points there.

Let them eat cake.

Isn't Istanbul the week before the French Open? If so, that's after the seeds are set.

If she loses 600 points, that would put her just behind Petrova's current total at #12. Clijsters could pass her, but there's also the possibility that Capriati won't be able to play RG.

That's odd...I wonder why she is playing her schedule like that

If Venus was truly worried about her seeding she would have changed her schedule again

it doesn't matter what her seeding is, if she is truly ready to win, she'll win it regardless of whom she plays
