Would You Prefer Venus To Be Seeded Or Unseeded @ USO?

She will be ranked 29-31 next week depending on the results of Anna C and Vera Z. Then she suppose to play LA and Montreal, both of which would add to her point total. But who knows whether she will actually play? So it is up in the air whether she will be ranked in the Top 32 for the USO.

I would prefer Venus to be seeded so she does not face Mary or Na 1R and for her to face one of the Top 8 in the 3R, hopefully Kim or Nadia.

I would love for her to be seeded but to be fair with other players who earned their ranking, I would still go with the ranking. To hell with Venus first round opponent.

It depends. If she is unseeded she can be drawn anywhere, she can have Mauresmo in the 1R for example. If she is seeded with 28-32 number she will get one of 4 highest seed players, I guess. I think it's better for her to be unseeded. Though, I think she doesn't really care. If she's in form she can win with anybody just like at Wimledon last year.

I would prefer Venus to be ranked #1. Period.

Seeded, partly because that probably means she's played at least one tune-up. But it's going to be very difficult either way.

It doesn't really matter if venus is seeded,if she plays good she'll win,if she doesn't play good,she's in a little trouble.

I'm sure both she and everyone else in the Top 32 would prefer her to be seeded. I know I don't want my favs running in to her prematurely.

unseeded. I want a Williams vs. Williams first round unseeded so that they both realize they have to get their asses in gear and stop being celebrities.

Definitely seeded! Yeah, she would probably have to play a top 4 in the 3rd round but better that than the 1st IMO!

Well I'm sure she'd prefer to be seeded. But yeah,I'd rather see her seeded.

Here's a question: When was the last time both Williams Sisters were unseeded at a Grand Slam?

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

Must have been 98 Australian, when they played each other in r2. Because Vee was definitely seeded @ that next FO, but I don't think she was @ the AO.

Yeah you're right. Serena is a far too big diva. If she wants to play tennis, so play tennis, forget about acting, films and fashion. Venus is far more modest than Serena is and she is more concerned about her game not the big world of fashion etc
