If Kim Beats Justine, She Will Be #2 RG Seed

The seeds for RG are comprise of the rankings after ROME, and here is how the Rome week will begin:

Code:
Up to date Top 10
Added Berlin, Subtracting Rome

1 S.Williams  6383 
2 V.Williams  4508 
3 K.Clijsters  4414 
4 J.H-Hardenne  3475 
5 L.Davenport  3304 
6 A.Mauresmo  2992 
7 J.Capriati  2702 
8 C.Rubin  2490 
9 D.Hantuchova  2462 
10 J.Dokic  2242 
11 A.Myskina  2078 
12 M.Seles  1864
If Kim beats Justine:
1 Serena 6383
2 Clijsters 4659
3 Venus 4508

And since Venus is not playing Rome, she can't pass Kim.

...if Justine beats Kim, Ciljsters can get #2 with approximately a QF in Rome.

Given how consistent Kim is these days, the # 2 seed at RG seems set .

Venus can request a wild card into Rome.

But given that she has lost to Serena in 4 straight finals maybe a SF meeting or different draw will be better.

Venus won't be in Rome as the draw is already out.

Too bad, it would've been more competitive if venus wasnt injured and played at berlin...oh well its still 50/50 chance, if vee is on serenas side, not only will there not be possibility of an all williams final, but also a belgian final...

Yeah, that's true. I don't really care about this 2nd seed. I'm rooting for Justine tomorrow

When you ran those numbers, did you take off Kim's 18th and 19th tournaments?

awww well i still take heart that theres a chance they will be in opposite halves

lets hope for the draw to make an all belgian final possible, hey? if Kim is number two, put Venus in her side and lets see her prove it

She loses 200 points from 02 Rome, but add 48 as her 18th best.

Thanks Seles.

I just didn't want to get my hopes up.

It will be tough for Kim to win tomorrow, but I hope she does it. Just getting to the final was important, but if she wins, it takes off some of the pressure at Rome.

I think even if she loses tomorrow, she should be able to pull at least a QF in Rome.
