The only thing I want is that the Williams sisters are in opposite places of the draw, not anymore a round of 16 or quarterfinal when they are going to play against each other.

its funny to see those who dont like/support the WS sisters put them in the same quater with to other favourites,

eg. everyone who doesnt support Venus and Serena, have them in a quater with either Justine, Kim and Lindsay!

It just goes to show everyone is afraid of them that they will take out thier favourites!!!

and for those of you that say they ar just putting them there for high quality matches, its a bit stupid isnt it, becase in one quater you have Venus/Serena/Lindsay/Henin....and then in another quater you have Amelie/Kusnetsova/Myskina/Petrova. You would be better off putting half of the good quater with hadl of the bad quater, that way there are still high quality matches in later rounds are always better!

The draw I put up was last year's draw, the only thing that is changed is the rankings. Coincidently, the Williams sisters came out in the same quarter. I'm not hating on them.

it wasnt an attack or anything, and it wasnt aimed directly at you, and i didnt say you hate them, just dont support them.

I don't particularly like the Williams sisters but I put them in different halves and Kim and Justine in different halves, all in different quarters as I think it would be better and more balanced draw that way if they met later on not earlier.

alwayshingis and JustLindsay, obviously you are both giving Lindsay cakewalk

The thread is "how would you like the top 16 to be drawn" not "list one of the ways that the top 16 can be statistically drawn"

Here is a possible draw, selected at random:

1 Davenport
10 V Williams
14 Kuznetsova
6 Petrova

5 Pierce
9 Dementieva
16 Vaidisova
3 Mauresmo

4 Sharapova
11 Dechy
12 Myskina
8 Henin-Hardenne

7 Schnyder
15 Schiavone
13 S Williams
2 Clijsters

Come to think of it, that wouldn't be such a bad draw either.
