this is the way the seeds would be if the AEC followed the rankings - not sure if V Williams will be bumped up

but glad Li will become the first Chinese woman to be seeded

They won't bump Venus up
defending champ or not!

I'd put money on that one!


She's not Tiny Tim
or Antsy Andy.

so strange!! why do it for the men, but not for the women
i'm sure most WTA topplayers would like to see Venus "bumped up"

Venus will be seed n°4

I think she SHOULD be #4...but I doubt they would bump her that high because that would bump down either Justine (recent RG champ) or Masha (former champ). I could see them trying to squeeze Venus in as number 8. That way she wouldn't face a top four seed until the quarters.

Of course, I personally think she should be #1 seed...but we have to be realistic.

venus will stay where she is, if she will be 12 a 4th round with lindsay is possible, as 13 a meeting with top 4, that's horrible. to seed her at 8 would be fine
