Unseeded players that seeds do NOT want in 1st round!!

Now that the seedings are done, which UNseeded players do the seeded players NOT want to draw in the first round?

I say Misa Krajicek, Lucie Safarova and Martina Hingis

Misa-JenJen-Monica-Alicia-Chanda-Martina (Chucky)

well, she might not beat them - but Smashnova is the type of player that even bageling her takes 30 minutes.
seeds won't be happy to play a lengthy match in the sun risking injuries while Anna returns evrything back.

other than that Shahar has a nice record of upsetting seeds at slams.
it's far from fun meeting Vinci or Peshke early, Raymond and Cho are playing much better than thier rankings suggest and Loit is a tough lefty.
Schruff seems to have catched the swing of Rebound Ace much better than anyone would have predicted, beggining the year really nicely and out of the top100 there are dangerous russians Vesnina and Voskoboeva that like thier compatriots - ban pull off a huge one out of the blue. this could be thier turn.

lastly - the seeds are very luck to have Ahsley Harkelroad playing Quallies. she is definatly top50 stuff and she definatly found form.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

oh and all the local girls play really well on aussie grounds.
they are exrtremelly patriotic and every year we have a new girl reaching the third round ousting a seed in route only to do badly all year long.
still - for the seed that lost to the local, that won't be comforting.

Hopefully Martina will get a nice draw and won't have to play a seed till 2nd or 4rd round, and hopefully not a top one. I just want to see her get some matches in and it'd be great if she could reach the third or fourth round.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.
