Will Fran bump Venus out of the top 12?

With Wimbledon seedings due at the end of this week, a birmingham final will send Francesca Schiavone past Venus in the rankings, dropping venus to critical #13, meaning without a special seeding, venus would be forced to face amelie/kim/justine/maria in the round of 16 (hingis in the same position)

will fran pull it off? if so, what does that mean for venus and the top 4 at the AELTC?

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier

Well if Wimbledon is not doing its special seeding, get ready for some BIG matches in the fourth round. I mean, Venus possibly against Justine, or Martina against Maria or viceversa...it's going to be brutal.

doubtful that schiavone will get the final.

but even if she does and bumps Venus, we don't know if Davenport and Mary are going to play.

anywho. . .round of 16 is getting more interesting, because all are capable of playing a good match and knocking each other out in the right circumstances. but that said, I would suspect that the top four are praying that schiavone loses early!

Schiavone and grass is like Francesca with men, you just don't expect her to do well when it comes to either. She surprised us once, she might do it again.

I dont think Venus cares about her seeding. Look at last year. I hope Fran does well! Go girl!

Venus is the top grass court player out of the WTA TOUR. numbers and rank position mean nothing with the stats that Venus OWNS.

Venus has to play well enough to win all the matches. Against anybody.

to new beginnings.

The draw doesn't work like that. She could face 1-8 regardless of where she is in the 9-16 set. She could be ranked 9th and face the #1 seed in the r16. She could be ranked 16th and face the #8 seed in the r16. The drawing at slams is confusing, but not as confusing as people make it out to be.

I think Wimbledon will put Venus in a top 12 seeding anyway.
