Just my opinion........but I think often organizers or whatever treat monica in this fashion because they know she won't say anything about it and create a stink or at least something the media can get their teeth into ..people pretty much know that if players like jen feel they're being treated unfairly ..they won't take it lying down .....thats not to say that jenifer would be bothered if she was seeded 3, but the risk that she might be is enough.

I think it's out off order, i mean monica was ranked below lindsay last weeks when she should have been the no,2 seed and never complained but she's gonna take it worse when she realises that jen cap is being treated better tha her by the officials just becuase she doesn't curse and jen does.

ohh and i think jen would have been bothered about being seeded no.3 since she would hae been in either venus/lindsays half who would have properly kicked her butt..

Did I not tell you there was no way that Jen would be seeded below Lindsay?

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Jennifer is still ranked ahead of Monica at #3.

Has the WTA decided that LD will be seeded behind anyone in the top 3? Fair or not, the WTA should at least make it clear what their standard is.

This is stupid; I think their (WTA's) policy is always to seed Lindsay ahead of Monica.

But, in the end, I don't think it matters much. No matter what the seeding, Monica has to play better than this week and win those matches.

I thought Stanford's seeding hoohar was a one off, and the WTA regulation things kick in here? Maybe this is what its gonna be like for Lindsay's 8 special tournaments, and the Stanford one is a one off?

If they stay the same from now on I'll be satisfied.

I'm more concerned whether Monica gets booted out of the top 4 seeds at the US Open if the WTA decides to seed Lindsay ahead of Monica there !

You are and will always be the greatest ever!! We miss you Monica!
Ferrero get back to the top soon where you belong!!!

I look at people like Andre Agassi and Monica Seles, and of course what they did. I was always amazed at how Monica came back after so long and did so well. I try to keep that as an inspiration. He who doubts loses. (Serena Williams)

Monica isn't a whiny bitch like some players

Monica isn't an ass kisser like some players


Therefore the WTA can dick her over. It's happened a lot in her career. I'm sure she's use to it now, that is why she doesn't say anything.

Maybe the tournaments can decide who they choose to seed higher between Jen and Lindsay, since effectively they both are ranked #3.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

Monica has to play well enough for the seeding to make a difference.
