Who Can Davenport Actually Play in R1?

I really don't know how hard it is to speculate who will be playing who in a draw, and not 100% sure on how the process works. I know people have their desires of who they would like Dav to play in the first round, but who are the 5 most likely in your opinion?

Is there any real way to figure this out and possibly narrow down what could be a first round casualty to a higher seed?

Yep as she is not seeded it could be dangerous. She could be drawn next to Justine or the Williams. I think these three will be the only ones to trouble her in my opinion. So hopefully she wont be in any of their halves.

Re: Who Can Davenport Actually Play in R1?

And I know they say seeding is random correct? But if they were doing it for ratings purposes she would probably meet a Williams sister very early on. That kind of matchup would get the most attention.

Friday is judgement day for somebody.

The draw can't be rigged for two reasons. one the draw is televised as it is done. two the draw is totally done via computer after the seeds are placed. I just hope that Lindsay stays as far away from Justine as possible.
