10 Myskina
11 Schnyder
12 Zvonareva
13 Pierce
14 Bovina
15 Likhovtseva (Can move up to 14 if she does well at Birmingham)

18 Dechy
19 Golovin

Clijsters at 17? Sucks for the rest of the top 16...

Allez Lindsay, Serena, Venus, Dementieva, Pierce, and Bovina!

I think Molik should be seeded ahead of Petrova (in top 8). Pierce in front of Zvonareva (in top 12). Clijsters in front of someone so she is in top 16. (Is it possible to bump down Likhovtseva or Zvonareva?)

It's hard to believe all top 16 will play, so Kim will most probably be seeded within top 16 anyways.

For number crunchers how many points are kim, dechy, golovin trailing venus by? could they bump her out of the 16th p;ace if they do well in the lead up tounrys?

Seedings are used with post-Birmingham rankings. Kim and Nat aren't playing and tati is defending finalist points.

Isn't Wimbledon the only Slam to not always use the official rankings?? Like they made Serena the #1 seed and Venus the #4 seed if I'm not mistaken last year.

I wonder whether they'd dare doing it again this year :haha:

I think that they will bump Williams all the way up to #8.

I think they might too. How would Davy or Maria like Venus in their 16? They've done it for Pete in the past like years 2001 and 2002. Venus is a four time finalist and a two time champ, so we'll see what they do.

They might also bump her to just #12, I just can't see instead of whom. Schnyder is though an obvious candidate as she has an extremely poor grass record.

Venus doesn't deserve to have her seeding changed. I'm sure other players will not fear her

to be honest as much as i love venus....her recent play doesnt merit her getting a higher seeding and i dont think the wimby people will give her one....it really wounldnt be fair to the other players

Serena will.. :lol: If they don't change her seeding to at least Top 12, R16 match between the sisters is on cards..:)

last wimbledon venus and serena were only bumped up coz they still had the protective seeding and for no other reason.
But if anyone could be bumped up this year, it may be kim. I am sure the nos 1-4 will be relieved esp the defending champion.

15 Bovina
16 Golovin

It would have been interesting if BOTH Venus & Kim were outside of the top 16. That could have made for some interesting 3Rs.

I think Venus will be moved up a bit... (not as much as Henman though:))

Don't worry, she won't.. 1-8 plays 25-32 in R32. And 9-16 plays 17-24. So no matter how they twist it, should they lower Lena's seed or bump Kim, it won't happen.

I don't think they will alter the seedings at all.

I hope they seed the players exactly how they are ranked. It would be stupid to give Venus a higher seed. She has done nothing to deserve it this year. Kim I could accept but still don't think she should get bumped at all.

Kim CLIJSTERS PLAYING Aeastbourne

she can put herself in 16
then venus maybe 17/????
we might have venus/kim in one of those top 16 half as early as round 3 right?

If the top 8 stays

Possible QF

Davenport
Petrova/ Molik

Sharapova
Henin

Mauresmo
Dementieva

serena
kuzzzy


im just guessing it

I think they will move Clijsters up to Top 16 and Venus up to Top 8. All I can say is that Davenport better not get draw either one in the Round of 16!

i dont think davenport is afraid of Kim and Venus

!<blocparty>!
Jun 6th, 2005, 08:02 AM
Davenport will still be scared of Kim :lol: But seriously, Kim in the fourth round is a bad draw. Again, Lindsay needs to find her best form somehow, Kim won't choke like that again imo.

Wouldn't be shocked if Lena loses in 4r to someone like Sandra Kleinova :o She loves to tank in 4r of a GS :sad:

I wouldn't call it a tank...

But I must say, I'd be extremely surprised if that situation occurred.... wouldn't Sandra have to win 3 matches before that could happen? :p

If you ask me the British just don't believe enough in Kimmies chances on winning the title to do so :tape:

Why? Lindsay benefitted from seeding changes in 99

Eastbourne's too late for the players to get a better seed. They base the seedings on next week's rankings.

OH YUp Yup Yup..
then kim wont be seeded in top 16
players must be praying not to get her early

I think if Venus were playing well then maybe they'd bump her up, but she isn't playing like a top 10, what's the point in moving her up there?

I don't think Vee should be top 8. But i feel she should be top 12 though! Let's hope she will!
