Re: 2013 AO MD Seeding Speculations

I hope Ana will, somehow, be 12th seed, so that she don't face Azarenka, Sharapova or Serena in 4th round already. Please Ana, play in Sydney.

Unfortunately Sydney results don't have any effect on the AO seedings. Ana chose to play in Hopman Cup so unless someone withdraws from top12 Ana won't be seeded higher than 13.

Ana Ivanović.

Then let's hope her opponent in 4th round will be Aga Radwanska. But who knows, maybe Ana will surprise and defeat Sharapova or Azarenka or... who knows.

How is Jelena Jankovic still in the top 30? Is she omnipotent?

Re: 2013 AO MD Seeding Speculations

So, based on these predictions, who would Venus be facing in R1,R2,R3,R4 if she decided to compete in the AO?

It depends if she stays ranked at 17-24 or gets bumped to 25-32 bracket
if 17-24:
R1 and R2 she can play any unseeded player
R3 she can play any seed 9-16
R4 she can play any seed 1-8

if 25-32:
R1 and R2 she can play any unseeded player
R3 she can play any seed 1-8

Big difference

Yikes... I can't imagine her struggling (if she's in 'full form') with Errani and Kerber. Li Na struggled to beat her when she was injured earlier this year. The rest... I'm not sure. I LOVED the match against Radwanska because they both have such great net play, and they were both using the court so well, despite the results.

Ugh. I just want Venus to do well.

Re: 2013 AO MD Seeding Speculations

Would love it if Serena, Venus, Christina, and Sloane all somehow got seeded, but that might be too much to hope for.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn
