Im disgusted by the bank of west seedings!

i think its really horrible what they did to monica,lindsay should not have been the number 2 seed,and monica surely deserved it...im just saying it better not hurt monica's chances,or im gonna give the bank of west classic a phone call.

I don't think they should have, I don't think Lindsay needed any help anyway.

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA = #1

Good luck Nathalie Dechy & Dinara Safina too!

Lindsay has a "protected ranking", coming back from injury and all. Too bad for Monica, but at the same time, I think it is normal to protect a player who is coming back from injury.
I am not sure now, but I think Monica also benefitted from this "protected ranking system" when she came back after the stabbing ? At least I hope she did !

Sorry, but when Monica cameback from the stabbing, it was a whole different thing.

However whenever Monica got INJURED which is basically every year, she once even stayed out for 6 months, they never gave her special seedings they even seeded her after JULIE HALARD in one tournament. Even Mary Pierce didn't have any special seedings. And now Davenport is seeded no.2? Whatever.

Monica was co-ranked no.1 for a certain number of tournaments when she came back but it was done in such a way that the other top players got to keep their rankings.

I don't understand how injury protection brings Lindsay in at no.2 - when she got injured she was no.1 so surely she should be the no.1 seed ?

On principle I think it's unfair on Monica but if she ends up in the same half as Lindsay I don't think it much matters as they were going to have to meet in the semis anyway (assuming they both get there).

I cant stress what a big difference #2 and 3 seed is.......monica should speak up,and there is a big difference between a knee injury and a stabbing.....Monica has gone through a lot in her life and im purely disgusted,what they did with the seedings.

Monica

The no.2 seed means that Lindsay won't play Venus until the final where as Monica could meet either in the semis.

If Monica had no.2 seed then theoretically she would have only had to play one of Lindsay or Venus (if they had ended up in the same half) in the whole tournament.

If the seeds go like other tournaments, then Monica will be on Venus's side of the draw.

Almost EVERY tournament I've seen had 1 & 3 on one half & 2 & 4 on the other half.

I don't know if they do it on purpose or if it's just luck it ends up that way.

Monica should have kept her number two seeding and Linds at #3. I would have been pissed if Venus was bumped to 2.

Maybe this is good for Monica. Monica is too comfortable, and needs some abuse to really piss her off. Hopefully this will be enough.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

i am a lindsay fan so im not gonna say too much....but at the end of the day monica is a good player and a number doesnt determin whether or not she will beat someone on any particular day...either player could loose there first match so there wouldnt be much point as to who had the 2 or 3 slot. Shit happens...deal with it!
