what's the lil * doing behind the names??

Dec 31st, 2001, 11:14 AM
* means that they are still currently playing this week

Dec 31st, 2001, 12:47 PM
the top-players will pray and hope that daniela hantuchova get a seeding. without seeding she would be a dangerous 1st round oponent

Dec 31st, 2001, 01:00 PM
I hope both Daniela and Nadya are seeded

Nadia has to beat Meghann to be seeded <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br /> go Nadya go <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> that'll take her to #30.

Lina missed out on being seeded by not playing this week <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Seeds 1-16 are set now, can't see it changing.

Dec 31st, 2001, 01:10 PM
i like daniela ever since i saw her play a couple of matches against kournikova, then later on doubles with bovina...

i hope she does get seeded. for her sake too...

Dec 31st, 2001, 02:29 PM
where can i find last year's defenses?

All i remember is Justine won a title 1st week in.

Dec 31st, 2001, 02:34 PM
If you mean how many points they got, then use this weeks ranks (24/12), WTA not issuing a rank at 31/12,

Dec 31st, 2001, 02:38 PM
ahhh so nothing's being taken off? cool.

yay@sandrine being in top 10 once again thanks to nathalie t retiring!

Dec 31st, 2001, 02:43 PM
These aren't the ranks but possible seedings for OZ OPEN.

Dokic, Tauziat, Huber have been discounted.

Dec 31st, 2001, 02:47 PM
i did think there was summat up with it but i couldn't put my finger on it, so of course i just jumped to conclusions hehe...

just pat me on the head and smile at me, let me live in ignorance of the real truth that i'm as dumb as they can get.

Dec 31st, 2001, 03:06 PM
That is good for Testud, but she has a final to defend in the warm-ups I think.

Also, does anyone anticipate a lot of movement going in to Oz. I suppose Justine with her back-to-backs did pretty well, but Daniela would definitely have to beat Justine to think about seeding? Cos all those above will be playing too.

She needs to put in a couple of good runs somewhere along the line.

Dec 31st, 2001, 03:30 PM
Yeah Daniela gets a seeding!

Dec 31st, 2001, 07:46 PM
I hope Conchi can do well and get one of those last seeds.

Jan 1st, 2002, 07:01 AM
there goes Conchita, she's out of running for a seeded position.

Jan 1st, 2002, 07:36 AM
Patty needs to at least beat Venus to have any hope of being seeded then! <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

BE... did you include all first round wins from the Gold Coast in those calculations?

Jan 1st, 2002, 07:56 AM
yes Sarah <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I've updated with today's scores so far.

Jan 1st, 2002, 08:16 AM
yay Sandrine and Justine <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Darn! lol That means it's harder for Patty to get a seeding! lol

Jan 1st, 2002, 08:40 AM
Sarah not necessarily, she would have to beat Venus anyway.

Yeah, I know, but even if she beats Venus she is not assured of a seeding. If you'd only added on the 1 point for first round player, then she;d still have had a few more to come on for getting to the second round and it might have been a bit closer if she beats Venus! lol

Jan 1st, 2002, 10:49 AM
Well done Nadya <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> you've made sure of getting seeded <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Poor Daniela missed out <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> she should have beaten Justine.

only Tatiana Panova can oust Schiavone from #32 spot unless Patty defeats Venus.

Jan 1st, 2002, 02:30 PM
I'm hoping for a miracle then! <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Jan 1st, 2002, 02:32 PM
goooooooo tatiana! you're so cool!

Jan 2nd, 2002, 02:51 AM
last spot is straight forward

Tatiana Panova needs to beat Anne Kremer tomorrow in NZL to get seeded

Jan 2nd, 2002, 11:21 AM
the tension is too much for me... its good cos either way, a player i like will get it, but its bad cos one i like will not.

Jan 3rd, 2002, 01:45 PM
YES!!!!!!!!!! Goooooooooooo Tatiana! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

grabs #32 <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> she'll have to face a 'top' top seed round 3 if she makes it that far, but better than facing one in round 1!

Hope you win ur semi against Talaja, Tatiana! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <br /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />
