Makarova made the 4th round in Miami last year. I can see her losing before that if she meets someone good early.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Ah ok, i remember that Mona lost to Makarova last year in R3. Reaching QF might be enough then but it won't be easy of course.

Sure it won't be easy. At least now we know that she won't face a top 10 player before the 4th round because she will be the 23th seed. Mona was the 24th seed in IW thanks to Li's withdrawal. If she was the 25th seed, she would have faced a top 10 player in the 3rd round.

Let's hope she doesn't get Serena, Vika, Li or Pova in the 4th round.

No, they will use this week's ranking for the seeding in Miami.

Last year, they have used the rankings before Indian Wells
Here is the 2012 draw: http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...s/2012/902.pdf

Wozniacki was seeded at #4, but was only at #6 in the rankings after Indian Wells.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I am also quite sure that they will use rankings of this week for seedings, as QD will be out before new rankings are out and they normally donīt use different rankings for MD and QD...

I also would have expected that they would use this week's rankings but the website of the tournament clearly tells us a different story. Maybe they have changed the rules in this respect, but who knows.

They will use the current rankings.

For the WTA, we will use the current rankings. Monday's new ATP rankings will determine the men's seeds.

Agnieszka could be a tough nut to crack, but Mona could do that.

Of course, true, but still, the game Aga - Mona is a very interesting draw.
