Venus will be unseed so she will probably face in the 1st round one of the 9 to 16 seeds. She can beat all of them but somehow I see her having trouble with Na Li. If she doesn't face a seed in the first round, then everyting is open and she can face all the other seeds on the 2nd round. I just would like her to avoid Henin, Serena and Vaidisova because she would probably lose to all of them.

:inlove:

Come on Serena. :kiss: :rocker: :banana:
And Venus, Sharapova & Srebotnik. :yeah: :angel:

MrSerenaWilliams
Mar 30th, 2007, 02:01 PM
Venus could beat Justine/Nikki on clay with a week @ AI under her belt. IMHO, that title should be hers, so those 6 matches will help her get match fit, and ready to go deep at the FCC.

I just want an all-Williams Final! :yeah:

I think this year, the clay tournies will be really exciting. 2005 was all Henin if I remember correctly and 2006 was either Petrova or Henin.

This tourney should feature a tough battle with Henin, Serena, Kuznetsova, Schnyder, Peer, Vaidisova and Venus all possible winners with good potential on clay.

I can't see a cakewalk to the final for either Henin or Serena.

Mina Vagante

4 Kuznetsova
5 Vaidisova
6 Groenefeld
7 Safina
8 Dechy
9 Medina Garrigues
10 Jankovic
11 Srebotnik
12 Bartoli
13 Arvidsson
14 Safarova
15 Peschke
16 Santangelo

Last year's tournament was so boring. :o

Well, yesterday's loss really messed up the ranking for Shahar, who would have been seeded 7 instead of Serena, and what a difference from 9! For example, not running into V.W in the first round.

I don't want to start a thread about this. I think it is sort of related. What is Serena's ranking now that she made it to the final and what would her ranking be if she wins?

I wish I knew how to figure out these things!

Hope Serena's knee is ok for the clay.

The clay court is a big test, regarding the stability of Serena's knee. Due to the sliding on clay by players in rallies and in attempting volleys on occasion, her knee could buckle. Hopefully, this will not occur.

has pulled out of Charleston: "I started the preparation for the clay
courts and my wrist started to have pain more and more because the
balls are heavier...so I decided to pull out and have a break. Next, I'm
trying to recover and go play for my country in the Fed Cup."

well the top five have a combined 11 singles slam while the field at Charleston has a combined 18 singles slams. That's pretty good.

Yes it used to get really amazing seeds, now it is almost just fine with at least one former champion which is two time former champion Martina Hingis playing. The only other former champion playing is Venus Williams.

According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_Circle_Cup

"Only three champions of the Family Circle Cup never won/have not yet won a Grand Slam singles title during their careers: Rosie Casals (1973), Amanda Coetzer (1998) and Nadia Petrova (2006). "

I skipped reading this, good thing I went over this page again. The top 5 have a lot of catching up to do! But of course on paper it looks like a weak field. But if you see the names of Martina, the Williamses, that will be good enough for some like me.

I admire your dedication to her, but this is NOT the Hingis you saw last year winning Tier I's.
She can NOT 'crush' anyone currently in the top 10. I don't think she'll get past the quarters here. My opinion.

It's a bit tragic when none of the top 7 players in the world are at a Tier I. At least Serena is still playing or the organisers would be feeling pretty short-changed.

It does a lot of harm. I was seriously planning to go to Charleston until the numerous withdrawls became the rule. I'm not going to invest the time and money to attend a tournament only to learn that half the players I wanted to see withdrew at the last minute. I can't be the only one who feels that way.
