Too early for Andrew to start the 'Lindsay at the US Open' thread yet.
Possible 4th rounders at present:
13 Alicia Molik
14 Mary Pierce (grrr)
15 Natalie Dechy
16 Vera Zvonareva
If Alicia withdraws, we get Elena Likhovtseva as 16th seed.
Myskina is 12th atm, not sure if and when all her points come off for Montreal, Olympics, Sopot and Montreal, but shes only 45 points behind Alicia. So we could draw her. I cant really see any changes to 13-16 ranks other than that. But dunno what Marys shedule is - but shes not defending too much, so she could surprise! As long as we dont get Kim thou in our half, i will be happy!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!
Jelena Jankovic Mary Pierce MARTINA HINGIS! Kim Clijsters Ana Ivanovic
Well, it would be nice to have a bottom half of the draw like that for Lindsay....especially since Sveta isn't at her best So i really don't think Lindsay would have too much trouble against her. But somehow, with Sveta's ranking plumeting I would think she might be a more likely candidate for being knocked out before the QF's - but we'll see, she might bring it
At the moment, there is a close battle between Queen Vee and Princess Serena for the 7th seed spot, not that it will make too much difference except mayboe for the fact that it would deside which half of the draw they go in.....it's safe to say that V&S are likely to be in opposite ends of the draw if they should enter the USO seeded 7 & 8 respectively.
Should be interesting to see how it turns out!
PS. Anyone else noticed that you get like v$0.20 for ever post you make? I think you get like v$2 for starting a thread as well, but I haven't tried that
Hears hoping that linds gets a nice draw.....how gutted would maria be if she just became World No.1 and then got a top heavy draw.....gotta be gutted and she would be wishing she was world no. 2 again!
I personally think that either Venus or Kim would be the worst possible finalist for Lindsay to face. I realise I'm totally jumping the fun but still. Lindsay has the most problems mentally against these two even if Kim is a bit crazy in slams. Justine's an unknown quantity too.
Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas
