Re: 3,91% : The chance of Lindsay Davenport facing Henin, Serena, Venus, Maria or Ana
Actually, that's not entirely correct. The odds are slightly higher because of the seeding system.
There are 128 players in the draw, only 96 of those can potentially meet any of those 5 in the first round. So it's 5/96= 5.2%
There's 1 chance in 3 that Lindsay will meet a seed in the first round, not 32/127. 1/6 that she'll meet a top 16 seed in the first round, 1/12 that she'll meet a top 8 seed.
Everything you do continues long after you've gone
