While I agree with the premise of your post, I don't think your list of "shockers" are any less likely to win than your "tough players." Sugiyama or Zvonereva much less likely to win than Schnyder, Chakvetadze or Dani. Your argument would be better with two categories.

It is crazy that the top half is sooo loaded and the bottom half a joke (with no ofense). But in comparison there are two different tournaments.

I am sooooooo disgusted with this draw!

it is kind of a crappy draw, but blame it on venus' low seeding. :P

2 of the last 3 winners are in the bottom half. The other recent winner is retired.

And?? It's not like Kuzzy is a top 5 contender or anything. I could easily say that 5 of the last 6 slam finalists are in teh top half. And the previous winners other than Kuzzy and Sharapova are all in the top half.. unless you want to go back to 1997.

The bottom half is much worse, but you have to accept that this is the way things work at the moment.

The "shockers" of the bottom half are as good as the "tought" players from the upper half.

And it's the 1000000000000000000000000th thread about it.

Get over it! The draw is the draw, totally random.
Yeah the top half is loaded.. So what? This happens.

Draw is based on seeding and therefore ranking. It's not the fault if certain players really should be ranked higher.

If we before draw have 6 "real contenders" (two 2006 finalists, two Sisters and two Serbians) possibility for Masha to escape all other 5 contenders is:

Henin - 100% (1st and 2nd seed is always opposite).
Jelena - 50% (in SF 2nd seed if no upsets always played against 3rd or 4th seed).
Ana and Serena - 16.7% (in her half of draw must be two of 5-8 seeds, and that is 6 different combination).
Venus - 50% (for #16 seed is same possibility to be in TOP or in bottom half of draw).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

That means possibility for Masha to have "perfect draw" (all other 5 contenders in opposite half of draw) is 1/24 = 4.17% !!!

that's okay because the winner will come from that tough section. let the game begins.

Imagine if Sharapova's shoulder is still bad. The opportunity for Nadia or Anna to make a USO final. They'll never have a better chance.

Sharapova can beat them even with a bad serve and a bunch of DF's.
