It's an interesting idea, but Hantuchova above Lindsay? :lol:

I know there are a few kinks in it, but Lindsay needs to play more often. It's so disappointing whe nshe's not playing :(

to make this a lil more interesting, how would you do the seedings?

Do seedings only based on the Race? Yeah, that's a great idea. :retard:

I would do to seedings based primarily on the rankings and bump people up based on clay court performance leading up to the French and previous acheivement in the French. This probably wouldn't change the women's seedings much, but the men's would. At this point with Berlin not over and Rome yet to be played, I'd go with:

1. Mauresmo
2. Clijsters
3. Petrova
4. Henin-Hardenne
5. Sharapova
6. Pierce (if she plays)
7. Dementieva
8. Kuznetsova
9. Davenport
10. Schnyder
11. Schiavone
12. Williams
13. Myskina
14. Groenefeld
15. Hantuchova
16. Hingis
17. Vaidisova
18. Likhovtseva
19. Pennetta
20. Safina
21. Ivanovic
22. Dechy
23. Kirilenko
24. Sugiyama
25. Medina Garrigues
26. Golovin
27. Chakvetadze
28. Bartoli
29. Srebotnik
30. Arvidsson
31. Safarova
32. Koukalova

Depending on what goes on in Berlin and Rome, Sharapova may fight for a top 4 spot, Hingis may go higher, etc.

if Lindsay was #1 on the seedings, you'd be loving it :lol:

Arvidsson will be seeded - lucky the one who gets her ... easy passage to round 2!

Sorry i don't like it. It seems very random.
i don't have time/inspiration to do any better tho, but, Why Clijsters so low, for instance??

Jankovic,Groenefeld could still rise on Monday if Jankovic either Wins or at least reaches the Semis of Strasbourg and Groenfeld will most probably win Istanbul cuz Myskina is not so tough.

Ridiculous. Kim as #2 and 2-time finalist (including the 12-10 third set loss to Capriati) bumped to #9?

I like your seedings here! Though Marti is my fave I would have to put Nadia @3 and maybe Kim @4, Hingis @5...not sure about that one though. Also I would move Venus up a spot or two>P

I guess it's more of an issue going into Wimbledon since the seedings are actually chosen instead of being based on rankings. However, if they weren't based on rankings my top 8 would be:

1. Amelie (simply because she is no. 1 in the world)
2. Justine (undoubtedly the favourite)
3. Nadia (excellent form)
4. Martina (again, in great form - good win in Rome)
5. Kim (poor form but still a big threat)
6. Svetlana
7. Elena
8. Maria (not much chance at RG but still a top player)

Venus and Dinara in 9th and 10th.

I'm sure the winner will come from those top 6 players.
