I dread that she can't even be a seed duo to her recent performance,then maybe she will face kim or justine or maria or amelie or others in the first 3 rounds ,it's really funny I think,also serena!!
The dream first round match:Venus vs Martina,serena vs kim,or venus vs serena!! :drool: :lol: :lol: :hearts:

She'll be seeded.

Well she basically has nothing to defend this summer. She only played Standford last year. So hopefully her wrist isn't too bad and she can play Carson City and Montreal. then she should be seeded only if she does well!

Its all up to her. I don't know how serious this wrist injury is, but she needs to play some tournaments before the US Open (and do fairly well at them) to be assured of a seed.

Venus can be seeded if she plays tennis tournaments and wins some matches!

Serena should play qualies just for the match practice!

she has a chance especially if one or two players ranked higher withdraw.

maybe if she makes it to a hard-court warm-up or two:(

Venus needs to win. Seed or not.

:( As long as she's healthy.

so if venus doesnt get a seeding 1 american will be seeded and dav may be injured-maybe US tennis is in a bad way right now

I think it will be quite cool to see both Williams sisters that are unseeded at the UsOpen actually. I think the draw of the UsOpen will maybe be headlines about big first rounds.

if she gets some pre-tournament play, she will be.

agreed it all depends on how bad her wrist is
