RG Draw- Who wants to avoid who?

I saw this thread in Menstennisforum and I think we can discuss it for the womens RG draw.
For a start:
Safina- Is it safe to say she wants to avoid no one? maybe a bit Kuzzie in QF?
Jelena wants to avoid Williams in quarters.
any more notables?
Well, Everybody wants to avoid Radek for sure.

Re: RG Draw- Who wants to avoid who?

Dinara has been so good on red clay the last 2 years, I don't think it matters.
Everyone wants short early round matches. Not have to face good clay courters and be on the court for 3 hours in week 1.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Safina has to avoid Jelena. She tends to defend Safina's aggressive shots vey well. Safina sure can beat Kuzzy.

Venus wants to avoid playing any player she hasn't played before(surely, it will be a struggle)! She wants to face high ranked opponents, no unknown quantities!

Serena may needs to avoid in early rounds a player who wont give her rhythm in the likes of Radwanska and Schnyder.

Re: RG Draw- Who wants to avoid who?

Nicole needs to avoid a solid seed for as long as possible. She needs to gain momentum by beating players ranked below her.

Vika needs to avoid Vera(if she plays) and Dinara.
