If no one pulled out Justine's highest seed would be 5th in RG right???

Even if she wins Berlin??

That would be a tempting QF match up! I want her to get Clijsters (Which would be the hardest to beat) but would be the most satisfying

vs Amelie 60-40 (Amelie is not showing her form as #1, She usually chokes infront of her homecrowd)
vs Kim 55-45 (It's Clay, but no matter what surface, it's always tough against Kim)
vs Maria 70-30 (It's Clay, Maria can fight off tough3 setters in any other surface, but on clay Ju should win, but never under estimate Maria's fighting spirit)
vs Nadia 60-40 (Nadia is on a roll, she could test Justine to a 3rd set. This is a huge test for Nadia (if she makes it this far this year)

What do you think???

If Justine and Momo get put in the same quarter it will be scandalous!

I think the RG should do what Wimbledon always does (though much less frequently in the women's draw) and that is: to move Juju up the rankings and give her a 1-4 seed. After all, she is the current Champion

Hope not cause Mary has a chance of a top 4 seed. If Nadia can't defend her final in Rome, Mary will go to 4. So I hope not (Nadia is playing well so she should defend those points, but I can still hope)

Flavia Pennetta

Well, they shouldn't take Mary off the top 4 either After all, she's a past Winner and last year's finalist. Why not take Masha off? She is the weakest of the top 4 on clay.

Kim-Juju would be the best choice

At least no more Belgians GS finals

I don't think anyone in the top ten would like to have the distinction of having to play Justine in the quarters at the French Open. I'm doubtful Justine will lose any sleep over it either.

Is it really that random the QF match-ups between the 1-4 and the 5-8 seeds? It seems like all I see is 1 getting either 7 or 8 and 3-4 having either 5 or 6.

So I think Justine, if she's the 5th seed, will most likely get Sharapova or Petrova in the QF. BTW, Petrova also has to defend her final in Berlin (not in Rome, as some said), on the other hand she only got to the R16 in Rome, so she can improve on that.
