Elena Bovina (RUS)
Francesca Schiavone (ITA)

It's nice to see the Russians a little more spread out for once. The earliest Russian matchup would be Vera Douchevina vs Maria in the 2nd round. Elena Bovina could face a tough 2nd round matchup with Lindsay

I wish Sveta was playing. She would have had a bye, about 5 days to rest, and a great draw.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

Will they redo the draw if Lindsay pulls out?

only if she withdraws before tomorrow's schedule is released
then Masha would take Lindsay's spot
and Serena would move to Sharapova spot
and a #9 seed comes in... Patty into spot left open by Serena.

otherwise a LL just takes Lindsay spot like last week

Good luck to my favs

With Serena withdrawing, Lena B should make the SF if she beats Lindsay

Thanks Epigone i just saw it on GM also DAvenport is out, i dont know why but according to TBE : Elena Dementieva takes her spot and Vera Z takes Elena's spot .

At this rate, only Zvonareva and Petrova are left in the top half

Due to the withdrawal of Serena and Lindsay, this is the new draw.

Updated draw

Amélie Mauresmo (FRA) (1)
bye
Qualifier/LL
Paola Suarez (ARG)
Mary Pierce (FRA)
Fabiola Zuluaga (COL)
Magdalena Maleeva (BUL)
Patty Schnyder (SUI)

Vera Zvonareva (RUS) (6)
bye
Alicia Molik (AUS)
Silvia Farina Elia (ITA)
Timea Bacsinszky (SUI) (WC)
Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
Lisa Raymond (USA) (WC)
Nadia Petrova (RUS) (8)

Venus Williams (USA) (7)
Karolina Sprem (CRO)
Qualifier/LL
Qualifier/LL
Vera Douchevina (RUS) (WC)
Daniela Hantuchova (SVK)
bye
Maria Sharapova (RUS) (4)

Ai Sugiyama (JPN)
Qualifier/LL
Qualifier/LL
Qualifier/LL
Elena Bovina (RUS)
Francesca Schiavone (ITA)
bye
Elena Dementieva (RUS) (3)

I think that this may be a worse draw for the Russians. Lena D and Lena B could meet in the 2nd round, and now there are no Russians in the top quarter of the draw

Звонарёва ~ Павлюченкова
Петрова ~ Клейбанова
Сафина ~ Кириленко

as long as Lena B can beat Banshee again
it will be a good tourn
Lena D is at her most vunerable in the 1st and last matches in tourns



I just hope Vera D dont play tomorrow as then as cant see it
only 1 court so all matches late in day will be on TV

they do start at 10am as well, so 2 matches before ES starts

Good luck to my favs

Elena D. spoke of how tired she is. She's still not definate for Zurich.
This is a big tournament for Vera. She can still make the YEC.

This tournament is missing Lindsay, Anastasia, Serena, Sveta, Justine - there's a lot of opportunity here.
A very soft Tier I.

This will probably be a horrible tournament for Russians.

I see Lena B going down to Schiavone... she's played tons in the past 3 weeks, she'll be tired, and Trannie is due for another win over her. This seems like the 20th time they've played now...

Lena D... blah. If Lena B plays well, she beats her. Lena B won't. So, whatever.

Lena B. was in the same section with Serena and Lindsay. Now I can see a Bovina-Sharapova semifinal.
