Last week before Mary's back !
I saw the entry list, and it seems like Mary will be seed number 8 !
Lindsay, Masha, Serena, Elena Dementieva, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova and Patty Schnyder are better ranked than Mary.
Kim will be number 9 !
It means that Mary will have a bye to her first round, which is a good new because it's a really hard tournament, with 6 matches to win in a row to win the title ("only" 5 if you have a bye !).
Moreover, with one win, Mary will have points to a third round, and it will help her to defend her points !
The drawback of having a bye is that Mary will face a player who has just won a match ! For her first tournament on hardcourt, Mary will need to find her tennis etc etc ... So i hope her a good first match to enter well in the tournament !
And, please, i don't want Mary to play Kim in the last 16
Do u believe Mary will play doubles ?
It's a hard tourney, don't know if it's a good idea ... but, if she plays a double match the monday, and her first single match the wednesday, it would help her to get used to court ... ! So i don't know lol
