I'm dying to see a YEC group with Henin, Sharapova & the Williamses



Just imagine:

Venus rooting for either Justine or Maria to defeat Serena on Friday so she gets through the semis

or

Venus & Serena meet on Friday with Serena in semis already and Venus having to win in straight sets to be in the semis

or

Venus (with no options to get into semis) has to lose in straight sets to Maria in order for Serena to be in the semis

or

Venus & Serena shut everyone's mouths and both reach semis

That would be a group to die for...and we would get the biggest drama EVER here in Wtaworld











And then a Kuznetsova/Jankovic/Ivanovic/Chakvetadze group

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

What a thought.

Actually, all those scenarios would apply if Venus and Serena qualify and end up in the same group. I'm sure they'll be objective though.

Yeah right, especially with this one

Venus & Serena meet on Friday with Serena in semis already and Venus having to win in straight sets to be in the semis

I don't think either would tank a match. And since the first scenario is supposed to make them sound selfish, and they always talk about how the other is so difficult to beat, then why wouldn't it be possible that one would try her darnest to win so as to eliminate the other?

Half of that list won't even show up for the YEC.

Re: I'm dying to see a YEC group with Henin, Sharapova & the Williamses

Assuming the current leading 8 in the YEC make it - I've got a horrible feeling that one group is going to be top heavy just like the draws for the slams. And I've a feeling Jelena is going to get a really tough group like she's been getting tough draws.

The draws are based on rankings - not position in the race. So two horrible scenarios I can see:

Group A - the tough one:
Justine
Jelena
Ana
Serena

or maybe:

Group A - the tough one:
Justine
Jelena
Serena
Venus

I keep telling myself Jelena is going to get an easier draw sooner or later. But I think it's kinda inevitable we'll end up with another of these Justine, Serena and Jelena in the one group - and Sveta, Maria and Anna in the other other easier group.

I hope the entire Top 8 shows up because this could set up some great match-ups.

Re: I'm dying to see a YEC group with Henin, Sharapova & the Williamses

that would be crazy.
but i can't wait to know who will actually qualify, because there's still some points to grab.
hopefully Venus & Serena will try to get them.

to new beginnings.

Re: I'm dying to see a YEC group with Henin, Sharapova & the Williamses

How are the groups decided? random? or by seed? cause at this point thats not possible with Justine being the 1 seed.... and if they qualify Sharapova, Venus and Serena will be the 6,8, and 7th players in....

Technically it's done by seed, e.g. 1-2 separate, 3-4 separate, 5-6, 7-8.

In practice it always works out so Sharapova has the easiest group.

E.G. in 2004 (when she won) she had 2,4,6,8 in one group, including Kuznetsova, Mauresmo and Zvonareva!

Henin, Jankovic, Sharapova, Serena, Ivanovic, Anna Chakvetdadsky, Venus would make the YEC super. Sveta needs to improve her play or else she might be the weakest in the top 8
