It's the only way to keep the "excuse quotient" at an endurable level. Not decent, just endurable.

You must mean the excuses that Kim and her fans will make if she loses.

And the excuses Williams fans will make!

This way, Venus will have to beat TWO Belgians to win the title. I think Justine will make the final if she is not on Venus' side. I think Kim will make the finals if she is not on Venus' side.

Hell, the Belgians could very well make the finals in spite of Venus, but I garantee that the one that meets Venus will be considered to have a MUCH tougher draw!

Oh, In case you forgot, Jennifer Capriati will ALSO be a force in this tourney.

I don't see Jen as a likely difference-maker here.

And I can see Kim lose to Venus without making excuses. Probably not even half of Venus fans could say the same if the roles were reversed.

I am still trying to figure out how Kim could lose to an obviously injured Venus at Wimbeldon.

Of course, there is also the "injury excuse". I guess the best defence I can hope for against that is Venus beating Jennifer in the Quarters. Lindsay would also do, but of course she will not even be in the same half as Venus.

1 vs 8 Kim vs Chanda
5 vs 4 Amelie vs Venus
3 vs 6 Lindsay vs Jen
2 vs 7 Justine vs Anastasia

This is how it supposed to be!

I guess Venus wasn't injured enough. Kim wasn't exactly the picture of health when she beat Venus in Hamburg. Half the matches Monica has won in the past 4 years she was injured. It can be done.

No rhz, tennis doesn't seed that way. Anyone in the top 4 can match against anyone in the next 4.

i know it doesn't but it supposed to be like that to be fair

The only problem with doing that in tennis is it wouldn't be fair. You'd see too much of the same players against each other. For instance, Venus and Lindsay would probably have played each other at Wimbledon, again now at the US Open, and probably again at the Aus Open.

but Lindsay and Venus wouldnt be number 4 and 5 all the time!

I have nearly 7000 posts. Obviously I haven't spent much time hiding in a shell. I've had a pretty simple answer the two times Venus has beaten Kim this year "Kim will be back". No excuses, no rationalizations, no wild claims about how Kim could never lose the match under normal circumstances, just "Kim will be back".

It's called sportsmanship, try it.

Disposable, what is it with you...??? You seem to have a "stick up your ass" as far as Venus is concerned...??? Please, what is the phucking problem that has your drawers in a twitch...??? Surely, there's a fav of yours worthy of your time and attention...!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
