should mary be seeded at Roland Garroce 2002?

sometimes building the draw, some tournaments (in particoular Wimbledon) don't respect the ranking.


should mary be seeded in Roland garroce this year?

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference

If she qualifies, then she qualifies (but I don't think she will).

I have a lot of time and respect for Mary, but I'm sure that even if you ask her, she wouldn't want any special treatment. She's been injured - horribly and frustratingly - but we'll see.

IMO, it depends on Mary's results in the clay season. I mean, if she wins 2 tournaments (which is possible) she should be seeded...they should respect her previous performances in RG. She won it in 2000, and reached the final in 1994.

Sorry, lost the overview on her rankings. Does she get a direct entry? If not she will surely get a wildcard as a former champion. But a seeding? That would not be fair. She will nevertheless be a major threat for all players if they have to play her in the first rounds.
If she is allready that good she will go far in the tournament even without a seeding.yes, it is important to have a top 8 seeding in order not to have a big oponent before the quaters. The other seeds (9-32)are not so important especially on clay, where the seednumber often does not represent the actual strength of the player. And Mary is in the moment no top 8 player, but let's see how well she does on the clay courts before RG...

Good luck to her!

Monica announced her official retirement on February 14, 2008. What a sad day! I'm proud to be a Selestial and I admire Monica for her fighting spirit and her character.
The tennis world has lost one of the greatest players of all time! Have a wonderful post-tennis life!

Arantxa, you will always be in my heart. Thanks for all the great matches you gave us and for just being a wonderful person on and off court.
All the best for your future!

no they should go by the rankings. Wimby never really did anything drastic like seeding a player ranked in the 200's....they only did it for steffi graf (not sure if her ranking was that low though) rightly so coz she'd won the tournament more than once before...mary has only won roland garros once.

Nope, I hope she qualifies or recives a wild card but there are other players who right now deserve a seeding more than her....

No. Give her the gold exempt wild card so we can be sure she gets in, but no seed. The seeded players earned those positions. And if Mary is close to her old self, by the USOpen, she'll be one of the 32 seeds. It not like she's defending anything.

I'm hoping that Mary comes back on fire and wins this tourney in Sarasota and gets on a tear so that her ranking is high enough for her to get a direct entry. It looks promising, her win over Ai was impressive because the last time they played was at the AO in 2000 and Ai had won. Keep up the good work Mary
