I have a question regarding likely meeting of the Williams at AO. Is it possible that they will be on opposite side of the draws and there could be an all Williams final? .

I'm guessing it's about 50/50. :)

yes... based on the seeds, it seems that the earliest they can meet is the semifinal.. as Serena will be seed 7th and Venus 8th.... and i could be wrong, but in my mind it'd make sense for the 7th and 8th seed to auto go to the opposite side of the draw like the 1 and 2 do, but im not sure if it works like that....

they will meet at the earliest in the semis, or if not the semis the final.

It's totally possible.

In my pessimistic world though, they will be on the same side of the draw. One will draw Justine in the quarters. One will draw Lindsay early on. They will have the hardest 4th rounds, etc..... They never get easy, cakewalk draws.

Yeah they hardly ever do, but they seem to excel when things are tough right from the get go.

I think earliest would be semis! Good luck to them with the draw tho! At least if they met in semis we would have 1 william in the final!

Okay, I am going to say a prayer for them to be in different side of the draw. The rest I will leave up to them.

50% chance...

1/4 chance both are in top half
1/4 chance both are in bottom half
2/4 chance that one is in top and one is in bottom

:rolleyes::rolleyes:Will I want to see if they are going to give Lindsay a hard draw, remember last year serena was unseeded and they give her the hardest draw possiable................for sure they will give justine & Sharpova a walk in the park draw!!! but I really hope they will at least put Serena & Venus on the oppitsite side of the draw (but most likly not)!!!!!!!!:scratch:
All the best for Serena & Venus and my other favorite Jenlena J.:lick:

Better chance of hell freezing than this happening. The sisters will never be granted easy draws, that reserve for Maria. I am prepare to see Justine and at least two other top seeds in Serena's half.

Neither does Daniela. (And for her, it's more than just one year) i.e. 2007 QF's.

:weirdo: at people saying henin will get an easy draw. She usually gets hard draws and if she doesn't.. she's the freakin #1 seed! She should get an easy draw.
