Shes multiple grand slam champ, and has a huge fan base, I mean I dunno but if she wasn't she could easily draw someone high in the first round and wimbledon will lose one big name. Plus its her last wimbledon.

Venus is a 5 time champ so yes.
Kim is irrelevant at Wimbledon so no.

Two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Kim Clijsters?

Saint Sin is useless on grass. She probably won't even play it so why bother

Re: Wimbledon 2012 Do Venus and Kim deserve to be seeded??

I thought the rule was that they could only juggle the seedings between the top 32, in which case both Kim and Venus are likely to be out, unless they play in Birmingham and win it or something.

I do think if Venus were to be seeded, it would be fair to seed Kim, as she has reached the semis etc. But surely if you were to seed Venus, you would have to seed Pironkova, as she has dumped Venus out for the loss of five games the last two Wimbledons....and has reached a semi and a quarter, so her recent record is better than both Venus' and Kim's!

Venus does. She won five times and hasn't lost to anyone outside the top 15 all year.

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson
