I can't remember how the groups went last year but don't they usually divide the two groups up but even ranking and odd ranking? If they do that makes for one really competitive group and one fairly week one. If all the players that currently qualify actually make it.

ODD Ranking by RACE
1. J. Henin
3. S. Kuznetsova
5. S. Williams
7. V. Williams
:tape:

Odd group will easily produce the champion since these are the 4 on best four besides Jankovic. We will get guaranteed marquee matches but they'll be before the final although its possible for 2 of these women to meet in the final it still just "seems" unfair since all the GS champions are in the same group.

EVEN Ranking by RACE
2. J. Jankovic
4. A. Ivanovic
6. A. Chakvatadze
8. M. Sharapova

This group will either see the two Serbs take the top places or if Maria's rest is actually useful then she'll take out Ivanovic probably but even still none of these four will win the YEC and i'm going to go out on a limb and saying this.

However this can be seen as a good thing because if the EVEN groups produces the champion then at least they won't eliminate each other in the SF.

Posted all that to basically see if this is how the championship RR groups will look or the chances they will look this way.

PS. I know there is still time for them to change but the chances of this happening couldnt be impossible...... could it

You present only 1 of 8 possible draw scenarios (if Jankovic overtake Kuznetsova at WTA rank before Madrid). Here is "current rules" for YEC draw.


YEC 2007 DRAW RULES FOR ROUND ROBIN GROUPS:

RULE#1: Henin and Kuznecova dont be in same group.
RULE#2: Jankovic and Ivanovic dont be in same group.
RULE#3: Serena and Chakvetadze dont be in same group.
RULE#4: Venus and Sharapova dont be in same group.


ALTERNATE RULES:
RULE-A1: Sharapova dont be in same group with Henin, Kuznetsova, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Serena, Chakvetadze and Venus.
RULE-A2: DaniElena dont be in same group with Venus.

Most important thing at draw will be are Henin and Serena will be at same group, because Henin >>> Sveta and also Serena >>> Anna. If they going in same group we will have "POWER" and "WEAK" group and that will be unjustice. If they play in different groups we dont have problems like that with unfair (unbalanced) draw this season.
