If Lindsay drops to #37 or #38 by the Australian Open

Unlikely I know, but here's the scenario:

Lindsay starts off playing poorly, misses a tournament or two with stiffness in her knee, but comes on like a Top 5 player in the last couple events of the year.

What would you consider a fair seeding for her at AO?

Leave her unseeded. She would have had enough time to prove herself. It's like Kournikova, she has also struggled after her injury and she was top 10 before, I don't see them giving her any special seeding because of her past. The same goes for Mary Pierce.

I doubt the injury rank and its bonuses extend from july to late january, so unseeded.

Lindsay has eight (8) seeding/injury protection points she can use, and they seem to be available to her whenever, so, given she's only used one (1) for Stanford, she can use her other seven (7) when she wants.

Leave her unseeded so she can draw Venus in the first round and beat her.

I think that by the time AO rolls around, Lindsay won't be ranked that low. She may be outside of the top 10, though. Given that she'll probably still be on the mend and constantly improving with each showing, she'd be a very dangerous player for anyone to face. I'd put her at #4.

I said unseeded because of the reasons of Kournikova and Pierce. If they were not allowed to get seeded after they were injured, then Lindsay shouldn't either. That's why I think it was unfair for Lindsay to be seeded #2 for Stanford. She should have been seeded #6!!

this is a tough one because if they left her unseeded then there's always a risk that she would draw a top seed in the first round. Imagine Capriati vs. Davenport first round in Oz 2003... isn't really fair to either of them if the situation is that Lindsay is playing well at the moment but hasn't played enough to have a good ranking.

Pierce wasn't seeded at the French, when she had won the event the last time they played

so if that is the presedent than IMO LIndsay should not be seeded if this occurs.
