Why so? Ana is a 2007 Slam finalist and Venus a 2007 Slam winner.
Serena and Justine-s quarter has two 2007 Slam winners plus a 2007 Slam finalist in Bartoli.

Life is so gloriously improbable

Second. Based on the highest seeds you have 3, 5, 12. That's pretty steep.

You can't just look at slam final appearances and wins. That seems a little short sighted to me. Look overall and I think it's pretty friggin clear. Jankovic, Dementieva, Venus and Ivanovic is a lot tougher than Henin and Serena. I agree the top quarter is tough, just not as tough as the second quarter.

Re: Which is the strongest quarter of the US Open draw?

I can't really choose between the first or second quarter to be honest. Both sections are jammed with great players who are or can be dangerous out of no where.

crap...
the only thing you could wish for is..
for Serena to be healthy/injury free enought to
play the next round so that she wont have to retire...

and on current form...
Venus/Jelena/Ana has played way lot more
matches this Summer, and are healthier
than Serena/Justine

Re: Which is the strongest quarter of the US Open draw?

2nd quarter narrowly over the 1st quarter. If Serena was healthy it would have been the other way around.

Re: Which is the strongest quarter of the US Open draw?

2nd but only slightly over the 1st. 2 former US Open champs in the 1st, but 1 in the 2nd and 2 darkhorse contenders.
