that the number one seed at the Australian Open, which is obviously Lindsay Davenport, can play Mary Pierce in the 1st Round? I think its possible because Mary is a wild-card. IS IT?????

Possible but unlikely

Its not cos she's a WC but cos she is unseeded.

Hmmmm, pretty interesting

slightly more possible than it would have been this time last year....

still, a match like that would at least guarentee us some sort of early round women's action on tv.

in fact mary has a 50-50 chance of meeting a seed in the first round <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" />

all because she's not a seed

If jenn does well In syndey, and Lindsay doesnt make the final - will jenn not be the top seed?

According to the AO website, the seeds will be announced on January 10th. So, the Sydney results won't count as far as AO seeding is concerned.

Thanks Linnie <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Of course it is possible!

Remember OZ when Lindsay faced Jelena Dokic? Venus Williams vs. Barbara Schett at Roland Garros?

By the way, I'd love to see this match! First round, so exciting! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Correction Mary Pierce has a 1 in 4 chance of meeting any of the 32 seeds, and a 1 in 8 chance of meeting a top 16 seed, and a 1 in 16 chance of meeting a top 8 seed!

there will be quite a few dangerous floaters this year: Mary, Anna, Conchita (if there are not many withdawals)... to me it just makes the tournament more exciting............
