Which three players among those eight likely to be at the tournament: Jelena, Dinara, Serena, Ana, Elena, Kuzy, Venus, and Vera, would you like in your fave's group?

for me and Venus, the best line up: Ana, Elena and Dinara.

keep JJ as far away as possible!

what say you?

For Serena I want Jelena, Venus and Elena. So Jelena could get knocked out cause Serena needs as many points over her as she can. Then to go through with Venus or Elena.

Serena and Venus away from each other.

And All Williams SF/F. Is what i REALLY want. :)

But as long as they are away from each other

If V ends up playing then I want a V & S final but I think there is better chance for that to happen if they are in the same half.
Actually I don't mind if Janokvic is in their half.... Hell I just want V to play!

I want Ana to be with JJ, Sveta, and Bepa. Two of her biggest bitches + Bepa, who will be tired as hell.

Group I :
1. Jelena
2. Elena
3. Ana
4. Vera

Group II :
1. Dinara
2. Serena
3. Svetlana
4. Venus

I believe that Venus and Serena will beat Dina and Sveta :angel:, so they both can move to the semifinal. In that semifinal, Serna will beat Jelena, and Venus beat Ana/Elena. :p
And, yes! All Williams Final at YEC! :bounce::worship:

Group II :

As long as Ana is in JJ's group and Serena on the opposite group its allright. I really want to see a Jelena-Ana crash.

I want Svetlana to win it all. I don't care who she faces. And I want Vera in the semis. Also in the semis, I would like Jelena and Venus.

Group A: Hopefully Serena will emerge with a 3-0 record, and Venus with a 2-1 record, her only loss coming to Serena. So both sisters move on to the Semi!

Venus
Serena
Vera
Ana

Group B: Out of this group I would hope that Dinara emerges out on top, with either Elena or Sveta as second.

Jelena
Dinara
Elena
Sveta


If Serena, Venus, or Dinara wins I will be ecstatic. ;)

There are some line ups that are not posible. The seedings are done based on the WTA 52 weeks ranking and the draw is done in the following way:

The first two seeds are placed in opposite groups:

(i) Seeds 3 and 4 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A and remaining seed in Group B).
(ii) Seeds 5 and 6 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A and remaining seed in Group B).
(iii) Seeds 7 and 8 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A and remaining seed in Group B).

The seedings for the YECs are almost decided. The only order that could change is Venus and Vera. So the seedings will be:

1- Jelena
2- Dinara
3- Serena
4- Ana
5- Elena
6- Sveta
7- Venus/Vera
8- Venus/Vera

So Jelena and Dinara will be in different groups. Serena and Ana also. Elena and Sveta. And Venus and Vera.

For Ana I guess the best line up would be: JJ, Sveta and Vera.

I'd love Dementieva to FINALLY make some progress at this tournament, and Safina to cap off her amazing year on a high.

However, I think the best final would probably be Serena-Jankovic, and three sets please!

gaviotabr, you're close. Elena will likely be ahead of Ana in the race and be seeded #4 in YEC, if that's how they do it, instead of by rank. If they do do it by race, then Ana will only be ahead of Elena if she makes the final of Linz, and that's if Elena loses immediately in Luxembourg.

The thing is Ludwig, they do it by the 52 week rankings, not by the race. I'll copy what's written in the WTA rules guide:

Basis for Seeding
Players or teams will be seeded based on the WTA Tour
Rankings current the week prior to the Sony Ericsson
Championships.

Singles
(a) Place seed 1 in Group A and seed 2 in Group B.
(b) To determine the placement of the remaining seeds,
draw in pairs as follows:
(i) Seeds 3 and 4 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A
and remaining seed in Group B).
(ii) Seeds 5 and 6 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A
and remaining seed in Group B).
(iii) Seeds 7 and 8 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A
and remaining seed in Group B).


Elena will definitely be ahead of Ana in the race, as I believe she will win Luxembourg. But Ana will be ahead of Elena in the rankings no matter what, and they seed players by the rankings.

Oops! Thank you. I wasn't sure which one it would be. Well, that's not so great. Sveta would be one of the only people I think she can beat here. :sad:

An exemple of what I just said is that Sharapova was number 6 seed in YEC last year, and she was not number 6 in the race. I think she was actually the last player to get accepted into YEC, because Venus withdrew, right? (I'm not counting Bartoli, who took Serena's place, when she had to withdraw injured, since Serena actually was there to play).

They seed it by rank; Sveta was 3rd in the race last year and seeded 2nd for her ranking. ;)

And Ana is defending a whopping 0 points this week. :lol:

Ludwig, Elena can beat more than one player. She has a bitch in the Top 4. :(

Don't be so negative Ludwig. Elena is either going to get Ana or Serena in her group. Serena has lost their last 2 matches. And Ana has never beaten Elena. There's reason to be optimistic.

I know Elena has a good shot against Ana and Serena, but it's the other two people that are cause for concern, even moreso than them. :scared: I just know she's going to get Venus, not Vera. She's fucked either way with Jelena/Dinara.

I just know my ideal group won't happen. Probably it will be:

Group 1:
Jelena Jankovic
Ana Ivanovic
Elena Dementieva
Venus Williams

Group 2:
Dinara Safina
Serena Williams
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Vera Zvonareva

And Ana will get knocked out in RR. :o

I understand your concern. I'm happy Ana won't get Serena.. and I actually feel fine regarding either JJ or Dinara, as long as Ana is playing well. My concern is Dementieva and Venus. :help:

I'm a Venus fan, and I want her to be in the same group as Jelena (to exact revenge), Serena (so they both can be in the finals, and Elena (for batting practice).

Group A
Jelena

So I say bring em' all on. :yeah:

1-6 against Ivanovic is more traumatic, imo. Wins are wins.

Batting practice my ass, btw. :rolleyes:
