Imagine if they draw groups picking up n1-3-5-7 and n2-4-6-8 from the Champion Race...

Groups would be like that:
Group A: Jankovic, Serena, Ana, Venus
Group B: Dinara, Elena, Svetlana, Vera



It would be awful

They take into account the main ranking, not the Race. Ana & Serena can't be in the same group.

Ana Ivanović.

Never actually seen the abbreviation 'W.C.' used for 'World Championships'...but will assume that's what it means in the thread title....It makes a lot more sense than the standard 'W.C.' abbreviation:Water Closet....Go Ana!

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Ahhhh,now THERE'S the old humorless Dutch attitude that I've come to know and appreciate! I wasn't trying to insult your title,Sjoerd;I've just never seen WC for World Championships before.I'm just glad that Ana has played her way into CONTENDER status for Doha instead of limping there half-alive based only on early-season points I don't see ANY 'weak links' in this field,so Ana doesn't necessarily have to go 3-0 in round robin play to move on to the title round.In fact,I'll be impressed if ANYone goes 3-0 in the opening round

I've never seen it as an insult. Just funny how much you can make of WC.
So if you're late for entering a tournament, you can always try to ask for a WC at the WC.

I just call it WC. YEC, Masters it doesn't matter how you call it as long as Ana wins it.

I kind of do too!
Venus and Serena can still advance even if they have to play each other. As long as they both beat Jankovic.

Rena's Army, Ana and Vika!!!

Re: NR 1, GS....... now the WC!!! Time For Doha!!!! AJDE!

I really hope Ana can do well in Doha. I think her win here in Austria should give her an extra boost. I read today in an Austrian sports newspaper, Ana flew to Dubai for preparation on Tuesday.

I really think, it's the best line up at the SEC since a long time. Only thing missing is Sharapova...

AJDE ANA!!!

PS: I think we should call the tournament SEC - for Sony Ericsson Championship
But the only thing matters is Ana shows a good performance!

| venus williams |

| caroline wozniacki | maria sharapova |

| jelena jankovic | tamira paszek | andrea petkovic | serena williams |

Re: NR 1, GS....... now the WC!!! Time For Doha!!!! AJDE!

According to this blog, Ana arrived in Dubai yesterday.

http://mrcens.blogspot.com/2008/10/a...novic-wow.html

I wonder why she went to Dubai instead of going directly to Doha.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

Yes, i'm wondering too...maybe she wants to do some shopping in the Duty Free

By the way, wherever she goes she makes the same, good, impression
