P.S. Some of my qualifier choices (i.e. Karatantcheva) are questionable at best, so here is the mock qualifying draw (http://pastebin.com/9FkjhcEA) I got them from; replace them with your own in your own mind if you'd like, or suggest any seemingly glaringly mistaken choices. I rushed through picking them. :lol:

Credit to Andreas and all others who helped to compile/modify the entry lists (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=423632) I used in creating this. :)

Well, Wozniacki would be in trouble with Safarova or Lisicki, Bartoli and Azarenka.

Otherwise, there would be some great potential match-ups in the 3R, 4R and QF rounds.
It's almost a perfect draw.

Kvitova vs Clijsters for an early scare.
Stosur-Clijsters (huge hype)
Sharapova-Zvonareva
Petkovic vs Venus
Henin vs Kanepi
Peer vs Kuznetsova
Kleybanova bs Pavlyuchenkova.
etc.

This would be heaven draw for Ana:

R1: Bye - Niculescu
R2: UE machine Lucic
R3: Li Na, Ana could very well win this in 2
R4: Cibulkova would be tough, but beatable
QF : Sharapova/Zvonareva/pennetta - all of them Ana could win
SF: Would lose to Kimberly in SF, just for a change... SF would be awesome!

Good luck to Jankovic and Safina in this draw :lol:

Kuznetsova vs Jovanovski in 1R? :rolleyes:

Jankovic has a bye* to the 4th round, where she'll get double bageled by Baby Anci.

I can live with this.

I can live with this.

At her current form I don´t think she would pass Mirza, but if she did, Cibulkova would be very tough...

That's the draw from hell for Kim: Kimiko(1R), Peng Shuai (2R), Kvitova (3R), Kleybanova(4R), Stosur(QF) :eek:..but I love Justine's draw :lol:

So Venus WILL be seeded 4th in this tournament?

yes, sam had to make the semis of brisbane to be 4th seed, but she didn't, so Venus gets it

[5] STOSUR, Samantha AUS v OPRANDI, Romina ITA
RODINA, Evgeniya RUS v CAMERIN, Maria Elena ITA
JOHANSSON, Mathilde FRA v ZHANG, Shuai CHN
SCHEEPERS, Chanelle RSA v [32] PIRONKOVA, Tsvetana BUL

SUAREZ NAVARRO, Carla ESP v FLIPKENS, Kirsten BEL
HRADECKA, Lucie CZE v [WC] FERGUSON, Sophie AUS
ARN, Greta HUN v [12] RADWANSKA, Agnieszka POL

With this section Sam would probably make the SFs.

Jan 12th, 2011, 10:37 PM
Yeah, I couldn't believe the utter lack of quality in her seed section, and she's a lot better than anyone in R4. :lol: If only.

With this section Sam would probably make the SFs.

That would just get her to the Quarterfinals. To get to Semis she'd have to beat Clijsters. She'd probably be happy this isn't real. She'd probably rather have tougher earlier rounds in exchange for not being in Kim's Quarter.
