I don't think it can happen, Venus and Serena must be on opposite sides of the draw to fit the Russian girls into each quarter of the draw. Depending on which rankings they take.

Hopefully Marina will get a good draw! :drool:

Good luck to all of them. :hearts:

So after this boggled my brain for a while, it is very difficult for Serena and Venus to get on the same half but it IS possible.

Ana/Venus, Serena/Elena -- Sveta/Aga, Jelena/Dinara.
With Lindsay being on the bottom and Zvonareva being in the 1st quarter (Venus' R16) to satisfy Olympic rules.

It is very hard and unlikely but it seems that whenever they can draw one another, they usually do. :o

They list only one draw ceremony, so I assume all the draws will be conducted then.

I'm a bit worried who the Chinese players will draw :scared:

Dav.
Aug 6th, 2008, 11:57 PM
Only three hours to go. :)

Will anyone be watching this or listening to it on the radio so they can update while the draw is being made or are we going to have to wait untl after the draw is completed?

Hopefully they make the women's draw before the men's.

Excellent. Fits into my schedule perfectly, and I'll be analyzing the draw on Shots soon after it comes out. For my own preference, I hope Dani gets a good draw.

probably
true kuta
my bet is venus and serena are in the same half of the draw and probably the chinese players might have gotten in the same side ensuring one of the players in the SF. ;)

That's why the draw is conducted by ITF, instead of Chinese Olympic Committee.

If the Olympics were here in America, I would feel that the people in charge would rig the draws so that their players don't play anyone tough in the early rounds.
I'm not against China, :rolleyes:
