Henin/Pierce and Mauresmo are all together too so up until the quarters there no problem [a slumping dechy in the fourth round] and then Dementieva.

ok she has a great draw. i would have to say that justine is the biggest threat on her side, but with the way justine played last week i don't think she would be a big problem. i'm not trying to look ahead, but lindsay has a great chance to do great in this tournament!

Can anyone clarify, if a seed pulls out will they reshuffle the draw? I REALLY don't want them to!

Maria's number one a blessing in disgiuse, I would say. <3
But not too happy with the first round, even if Li is injured ...D:<

yeah, I said it was a blessing in disguise! I too was worried about the first round, but hey, it can't be any worse than Masha's 1st round :haha: She has "Eleni: The Seed Slayer!" :lol: I'm thinking 1st round upset from that match :lol:

Well, I just can't get over Lindsay's draw.....it's amazing that the one week Maria is number 1 means she gets a death draw :haha: Sorry, still can't contain myself! :haha:

Can anyone clarify, if a seed pulls out will they reshuffle the draw? I REALLY don't want them to!

You know, I'm not 100% sure. Wasn't there a seed withdrawal at RG and we thought it would affect Lindsay's draw and make it better but it didn't. I think, but not 100% sure....maybe Andrew will know....but I think they just shuffle the seeds round in which ever half of the draw that the player withdrew from. So then, whoever was ranked 33 at the time will replace the last lowest ranked seed, then a LL replaces the 33 ranked person....or something of that nature.

Or LL loser just replaces the withdrawn seed if it's fairly close to the start of USO.

I could be wrong though.

When I first saw the draw my first thought was thank you Maria for taking the number 1 ranking and seeding. Lindsay draw couldn't be much better and the way Justine play at moment drawing her in 1/4 finals is not a bad thing. Amile in the semi finals not bad either. If Maria makes through the top half of the draw she deserves to make the final. I thought I was reading things when I first saw it.

Lindsay Davenport 2005 US open Champion has a nice ring to don't you think!!!

It was Vera v and she did before the draw was made from what I've read this morning so the draw will stand.

pretty good for Lindsay...good thing. i want her to be the one of her half to go in the final!

The other thing that works for our advantage (fingers crossed) is that Alicia has a record of really pushing Maria and beat her in the final of Filderstadt last year. Granted Moli (our nickname back home for her) is just coming back from injury but if she gets a head of steam her variety frustrates Maria.
I think serena will pull out (pick your reason as to why! LOL!) and that leaves kim and venus to duke it out. Honestly, i think the big threat is Kim, justine is a bit on/off at he mo' and Amelie will crumble ( i wish Mo-Mo would pull herself together and just win a Slam already! I love her!), and although Lindsay beat Kim the last 2 times when kim is confident, look out!
Go Linds..................love ya' work!

This is the first chance I have had to read about Lindsay's draw and from what you all say it sounds like a pretty good draw for her. Alicia does push Maria so that could be interesting and Danilidou is a pretty tough first round. I reckon Linds will cope with her first round ok. Hey lets get ready to celebrate the 2005 US Open Chamption!!:cool:

she didnt. the final last year was lindsay v amelie

I think the tournment you are thinking of that Alicia beat Maria in last year was the swiss com if my memory servers me correctly. It couldn't Filderstadt as Lindsay won it last year.

It was Zurich but Molik was beaten comfortably by Dulko this week and clearly is on a head on collision with a first round upset. Sharapova's first obstacle, IMO, will be Petrova who I've found a new respect for this year. I don't really get why you're calling Maria's draw a death draw, up until the semis it's a piece of cake and she's never been to the semis at flushing before so...

Oh ok...........i am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry for making a mistake, obviously i am the only mere mortal among us. Alicia will kick Sharapova's ass if she gets a groove going. If her game is off then yes i agree........she is in for a hard time, but she was JUST starting to get her game to the next level when the injury happened & she does not have lindsay's vast experience and Grand Slam confidence behind her to just "come back" straight away, and her game does bother Sharapova, who has a filthy draw, everybody is on her side! Venus, Serena, Kuzi, Nadia.....it's awful up there!

Well, Lindsay's got a pretty good draw, but Justine is quite a tough opponent, and she has a very strong mental, so I think she is a threat... Anyway, we have to stay positive, as Lindsay is the world n1!!!!!
