Two Willaims Sisters this week.

Lindsay has to beat Venus in the semis and Serena in the final to win, but she can do it!

Go Lindz!

Is that half of the draw?! If not why is Petrova at the top?

Also, how much longer does Venus get protected ranking? She doesn't seem to be showing any possitive results from this protective rank......

Yes, it's the bottom half.

This is Venus' last tournament with the special seeding. I wish Lindsay got hers for this long.

Well, yeah, I thought Venus is having the protective for a long time but I thought it was just me......it certainly feels like a long time. How come she's had it this long? Does it depend how long a player was out for? If so, Monica Seles will be having a loooooooong protective ranking if she comes back

It's because she's Venus Williams. She got it extended earlier in the year for no reason. She's had it for eleven tournaments over seven months. Lindsay had her's for eight tournaments, and they refused to extend it. Yet, Lindsay overall had better results, and lived up to her seeding all but one time.

Yes, Lindsay almost always lived up to her seeding. Not so with Venus. She is yet to live up to her seeding at any Grand Slam events this year. It's ridiculous how much favoritism the WTA is displaying and how unfair they truly are. I haven't seen Kremer or Panova being able to use any protected ranking to get higher seedings at tournaments.

Boy, do I want to see Davenport trash "the best server on tour" Petrova in the quarters and then beat up on the Willies in the semis and finals to win LA!

Petrova is slumping big time right now. I wouldn't be suprised if she didn't make the quarters.

Is Petrova slumping? She played well at Wimbledon, just lost to a better play that day in Capriati. I suppose Schnyder could be tough for her in the Round of 16, but otherwise her draw to the quarters is easy as pie. Not so for Davenport, who has got Kremer, Schaul, Frazier, and Schett as possible threats before the Final 8.

I am looking forward to a rematch of Lindsay and Venus with the same result of course, but it would be good for Lindsay to do it in 2 sets this time, although I would of course settle for 3 as long as she wins. Come on Lindsay, beat Venus and then she won't have a winning record over you.

I think last week Lindsay could have finished it in two, but I think there were some nerves starting to creep in during her last service game. But she won, so I don't care lol.
