1-4 vs 5-8 : Redux

If everybody plays, these will be the top eight seeds at OZ. My question is, which group puts more players in the semis? If nobody loses, they play each other inthe QFs, but of course any of them could be knocked off earlier. I love Venus, but she hasn't made the QFs of this tournament since 2003. (DNP last year.)

seeds 1-4 Henin, Kuznetsova, Jankovic, Ivanovic
seeds 5-8 Sharapova, Chakvetadze, Serena, Venus

NOTE: 1 > 0

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Since the draw is tomorrow, I'll bump this back up.

Re: 1-4 vs 5-8 : Redux

It really depends on the draw. I would like to say Serena, Venus, Justine and Maria. But Justine will most likely get one of those 3 in the QF.

So Serena, Venus, Justine and Maria -- and to replace one of the girls when Justine and a girl plays in the QF, I would say Ana.

It depends on the draw. We can bump this after 6pmEST.

I'd say the 5-8 Group with Serena, Venus, and Sharapova... and maybe Lindsay, but she's not seeded.

~Lindsay Davenport~
Serena Williams | Venus Williams
Stephens -|- Kvitova -|- Kuznetsova-|- Li

Mary Pierce
Jennifer Capriati
