Does Amelie's win secure her the #2 seed? I think it does because she's won two tournaments (Tier I's at that!) and she's French. I know Serena is special-seeded at #2 (since Kim isn't playing), but her form isn't there yet. Also, if the French seed Serena #3, they can seed Venus #4 ensuring they won't meet until the Finals if they both make it that far.

Special seedings will take place...mark my words...Amelie will be seeded 3.

Doesn't really matter if Momo is seeded 2 or 3 unless she is trying to avoid Justine until the final, but I think Momo should be #2 instead of Serena. I don't know how they will determine the seeds though. They may just seed according to ranking.

so far French have been the most fair Slam when it comes to seedings... So Amelie will be #2.

This is literally the $998,000 question. Will the French Tennis Federation seed according to the computer, like they usually do? Will they honor the WTA Tour's Special Seeding Rule, like Tennis Australia did? Will they use their own criteria, like the All-England Club does with the men? Will they just pick names out of a hat, which they could do if they so chose? As long as :worship: and :hearts: wind up on opposite ends, I'll be happy. ;)
