Monica's was a special case that few of the active players had any interest in supporting. They would rather have punished her for being the victim of an assassination attempt, but Martina N kept pushing them. It was NOT a "injury protected ranking".
The rules clearly state that a player entered under injury protected ranking is to be seeded by their ACTUAL ranking, not their "special ranking", but that the WTA retains the prerogative to seed them differently. Therefore, barring additional intervention from the tour, Lindsay would have been 7th seed.
I probably would have been less upset if they waited a tournament or two to see how she was playing before they decided to try and groove her into the Final. Hopefully Kim will see to it that she doesn't get a sniff of that Final.
And of course Monica isn't going to complain, Lindsay is her friend.
You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
