10 Myskina
11 Schnyder
12 Zvonareva
13 Pierce
14 Bovina

Clijsters at 17? Sucks for the rest of the top 16...

Allez Lindsay, Serena, Venus, Dementieva, Pierce, and Bovina!

I think Molik should be seeded ahead of Petrova (in top 8). Pierce in front of Zvonareva (in top 12). Clijsters in front of someone so she is in top 16. (Is it possible to bump down Likhovtseva or Zvonareva?)

It's hard to believe all top 16 will play, so Kim will most probably be seeded within top 16 anyways.

For number crunchers how many points are kim, dechy, golovin trailing venus by? could they bump her out of the 16th p;ace if they do well in the lead up tounrys?

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Seedings are used with post-Birmingham rankings. Kim and Nat aren't playing and tati is defending finalist points.

Isn't Wimbledon the only Slam to not always use the official rankings?? Like they made Serena the #1 seed and Venus the #4 seed if I'm not mistaken last year.

♥.i only have eyes for serena.♥

I wonder whether they'd dare doing it again this year

I think that they will bump Williams all the way up to #8.

I think they might too. How would Davy or Maria like Venus in their 16? They've done it for Pete in the past like years 2001 and 2002. Venus is a four time finalist and a two time champ, so we'll see what they do.

They might also bump her to just #12, I just can't see instead of whom. Schnyder is though an obvious candidate as she has an extremely poor grass record.

Venus doesn't deserve to have her seeding changed. I'm sure other players will not fear her

Serena will.. If they don't change her seeding to at least Top 12, R16 match between the sisters is on cards..
