My nightmare quarter is exactly the same as yours!

You can clearly see some "strengths" and some "weaknesses" in each group of seeds (1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16). If you add the 17-32 group in there, you could get some real bitch draws from hell!

The problem is that Justine, Venus and Serena (and Hingis ?) are too low on the ranking.

They are under normal circumstances better than most of the top 10.

Frankly, I think your suggestion sums it up. I think for women's tennis excitement, please put Kim & Justine on opposite sides & Venus & Serena on opposites side. With Sharapova as the floater in one of their draws, that gives us alot to talk about.

Yes, that IS the nightmare quarter, and what about Hingis, Ivanovic and Vaidisova being up there in the mix?

On the other hand you could have Sharapova, Schnyder, Dechy (is she playing?) and Schiavone.

Martinez won't play , and if she did, Justine would send her home in 1 hour, this is hardcourts, not clay

bt I'd like a Serena-Srebotnik match (not 1st round tho)

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbi鎑 Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...
