Williams and AO draw

I have a question regarding likely meeting of the Williams at AO. Is it possible that they will be on opposite side of the draws and there could be an all Williams final? .

Re: Williams and AO draw

yes... based on the seeds, it seems that the earliest they can meet is the semifinal.. as Serena will be seed 7th and Venus 8th.... and i could be wrong, but in my mind it'd make sense for the 7th and 8th seed to auto go to the opposite side of the draw like the 1 and 2 do, but im not sure if it works like that....

Re: Williams and AO draw

Re: Williams and AO draw

It's totally possible.

In my pessimistic world though, they will be on the same side of the draw. One will draw Justine in the quarters. One will draw Lindsay early on. They will have the hardest 4th rounds, etc..... They never get easy, cakewalk draws.

Yeah they hardly ever do, but they seem to excel when things are tough right from the get go.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

Re: Williams and AO draw

I think earliest would be semis! Good luck to them with the draw tho! At least if they met in semis we would have 1 william in the final!

Re: Williams and AO draw

Okay, I am going to say a prayer for them to be in different side of the draw. The rest I will leave up to them.

Re: Williams and AO draw

50% chance...

1/4 chance both are in top half
1/4 chance both are in bottom half
2/4 chance that one is in top and one is in bottom
