New Main Draw: a question for any specialist

Hi everybody !
I am puzzled by the new maindraw after Justine's withdrawal.
Why is it that Amelie doesn't take Justine's position in the maindraw? This is what usually happens, isn't it? Now the draw is so easy for im that it is ridiculous... Pleazzzzz answer !
Gus

Amelie Mauresmo, Marion Bartoli, Nathalie Dechy, Tatiana Golovin, Celine Beigbeder, Virginie Razzano, Emilie Loit, Stephanie Foretz, Camille Pin, Elodie LeBescond ... and the other beautiful French girls...

Because Justine withdrew too late. There is a time cutoff (4pm???) and anything after that cutoff - they moved as few people as possible.

And it wouldn't have been Mauresmo...it would have been Capriati.

It could have been worse...if Justine had withdrawn later, no one would have been moved and a lucky loser would have one in there...that happened at Amelia Island (Weingartner).

I am on der Tvitter, accumulating haters. https://twitter.com/Hurleytennis

No it would have been momo as she's been ranked higher than Capriati for the last 2 weeks and counting.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Why so - surely Momo would go to 3 and Cappy to 4?

doesn't matter about moving #4 to #3

they move #5 cos its a move up a grading in the seeds.

Good luck to my favs
