Could Serena and Venus meet first round at the French Open?

What would Venus' ranking need to be to avoid this? Could she ask for wildcard into another tournament before the French to up her ranking?

Maria could possibly request Serena gets Venus early at the French when she i-phones in her draw request this week.

She needs to be #32 to avoid this. Of course it's a possibility. Venus would need to win Rome in order to be seeded for RG. And no, Rome is the last tournament before RG that determines seeding.

Re: Could Serena and Venus meet first round at the French Open?

it's possible considering Venus is UNseeded player, unless she claimed back UP to TOP 32 in the ranking which also possible BUT Venus need to win Rome title, and therefore her next (new) ranking pts after Rome will be around 1,850pts which is inside TOP 30

Re: Could Serena and Venus meet first round at the French Open?

Basically, win 3 more matches at Rome and she can avoid this. Go Venus.

Serena - 22 Grand Slam Titles -- 71 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #1 | 2016 Record - (31-4) 89%
Venus - 7 Grand Slam Titles -- 49 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #6 | 2016 Record - (21-9) 70%

Maria(QF) and Serena(F) has won both Rome before as well...
So hopefully... she could pass by them

Re: Could Serena and Venus meet first round at the French Open?

I doubt she'll be seeded for the French - but she gained outright entry into the Olympics draw just by reaching the quarterfinals. :-) The chances of Serena vs Venus happening? 1 in 64. Which means it can still happen.

It won't happen because I will snipe Li Na (or whoever is drawing the names) before they can name Venus and Serena in the same match.

Re: Could Serena and Venus meet first round at the French Open?

this is hypothetical if Venus and Serena met in the Final at Rome would serena tank the final if it meant Venus could be seeded for the French?
