Sveta Kuznetsova fighting for the last seed in Paris

Sveta was voted Most Impressive Newcomer after picking up two titles last year. This year has been a bit of a letdown but she could easily gather steam in Roma.

Code:
31 (34)	L. GRANVILLE	1007.25
32 (31)	F. SCHIAVONE	960.00
33 (36)	M. SERNA	960.00
34 (35)	T. TANASUGARN	951.00
35 (33)	T. PANOVA	925.00
36 (41)	S. KUZNETSOVA	921.75	ROME 3R	87
-----------------------------------------------------
xx (39)	V. RUANO PAS	745.50	ROME 2R	29
xx (52)	E. LOIT   	728.00	ROME 3R	100
xx (65)	T. PISNIK	627.50	ROME 3R	94.5
xx (79)	C. BLACK	541.50	ROME 3R	78.5
xx (88)	N. PETROVA	498.25	ROME 3R	81
If one of those bottom five girls goes very deep, they could grab that spot as well, but it looks like Sveta is only competing with herself to get seeded.

She next plays Myskina, whom she beat at Indian Wells 6-4 6-7 6-3. Repeating that feat will give her 68 more points, juuuust pushing her up to #32, and a seeding at Roland Garros.

If she does, it's a pity that Schiavone and Serna won't be seeded. I wish they could unseed players like Stevenson and Granville.

Serna is on 958

Hurley I think used the 300 points for this event but its been corrected to 275.

so winner of rd 1 gets 23 and not 25

#32 is the last one to get seeded assuming there are no withdrawals... Venus, Lena B. and Lena D. are all under question as well as Monica.

Vassilissa is my girl............

This is the second time the WTA has put the wrong points on their draws in the last month You'd think they'd understand their own systems

Sorry about that, then

Yea Sveta.

I prefer her to Zvonereva, but am I the only one who thinks they look remarkably alike. I saw them playing against each other, both with caps on their head and such similar games.... I kind of got dizzy.

No problem! . BTW, Sveta lost, so she won't be seeded.

Yes. Sveta has a face like a bull. I'm not trying to be mean, I think she's super...but she does. Vera is a cherub. But they both have stocky frames, so I'll give you that.

Yes, Sveta lost, surprisingly to the Russian guys above, but I thought it could go either way. First big QF for Nastya since Australia, which she needs...but Sveta needed this win more.

I hope Nastya can win one or two more matches here...
