Added Goerges, Wickmayer, Cirstea and Watson.

By participating in Auckland, Watson loses the chance to be seeded in AO because MAX 260 points can be earned.

Again, sources please

I can't even find a proper website that has Shenzhen Open listed, let alone wikipedia.

Re: 2013 AO MD Seeding Speculations

Kaia had a surgery at the end of October, she needs about 3 months to recover. She can probably start playing tennis with full power in the end of January. So she can't defend her Brisbane title and misses AO.

Ugh. I just want Venus to do well.
Where have you been all year? Kerber beat her 3 times. And Li is if anything an even worse match-up for Venus.

Errani is the only top 8 seed who Venus would be the favourite against.

Li Na was pushed to the brink against an injured Venus who was serving in 80MPH 1st serves. Enough said. Kerber only beat her twice by the way and was up 4-2 in the 3rd at the US Open. Don't act like its impossible. But, still, in the Australian heat, with the Sjodren's, who knows what her condition will be. Even if she meets those players it means she's won a few rounds and fatigue might be settling in anyway. I think a 4th round would be a huge accomplishment. Na Li, Errani, and Kerber though are definitely the easiest of the Top 8.

Err...Madrid, Olympics, US Open. That comes to three by my calculations.

And for the record, I think what Venus did last year was amazing. Hopefully she can impress again next year. But I don't think it is fair to her to raise expectations of her to a level where she is regularly beating top 10 players. She does look like she is playing to a top 20 standard and I expect that will soon be reflected in the rankings next year, but given her age and the Sjogren's I think that is probably as far as it is realistic for expections to go. If it turns out that she exceeds expectations and does crack the top 10 well that would be something extraordinary. But let's not make the extraordinary something we expect. Give her the opportunity to surprise at least.

I completely forgot they played in Madrid. Which is irony considering that was a beatdown.

Too many players injured and she still has some SF and F runs.

She will be out of Top 30 if she can't defend her AO points.
