"Serena Williams feels insufficiently recovered from her operation to participate. Last year she won the title in Paris"

Serena Williams a déclaré forfait pour l’Open Gaz de France car elle n’est pas totalement remise de son opération au genou.

Comme Amélie Mauresmo, Serena Williams, double lauréate à Paris en 1999 et 2003, sera absente de l’Open Gaz de France 2004 car elle n’a pas encore récupéré totalement de son opération au genou. La cadette des sœurs Williams, numéro 4 mondiale désormais, est absente du circuit féminin depuis sa victoire à Wimbledon. Le 1er août dernier, elle s’était fait opérer d’une déchirure partielle d’un tendon au quadriceps gauche et, malheureusement, elle souffre toujours.

She has a special rank of 11 ;)
But does this garantee her a 3rd seed? I think that rank can only help her to get a direct entry into the main draw!

I agree, Third seed seems a little peculiar, Patty now has Kim in her Part of the draw :o :o

It would be understandable if Sandrine were just given a direct entry to the event but seeding her is rediculous and honestly I don't think she desrves it. She has been away for about two years and just came back and got seeded? It doesn't make any sense!

Not necessarily.

Well it's likley, Patty has a habit of getting into Kims side of the draw, So I like my chances ;) :kiss:

I like Sandrine, but leaving the game for two years, and being seeded with some of her Results, I don't think it's fair because I believe she will not fufill her seeding, good luck though ;) (I like my chances on this aswell ;) :) )

Eggy says Sandrine won't be seeded.

Hopefully, it wouldn't be fair.
Good Luck Sandrine !
