I saw this thread in Menstennisforum and I think we can discuss it for the womens RG draw.
For a start:
Safina- Is it safe to say she wants to avoid no one? maybe a bit Kuzzie in QF?
Jelena wants to avoid Williams in quarters.
any more notables?
Well, Everybody wants to avoid Radek for sure.

Dinara has been so good on red clay the last 2 years, I don't think it matters.
Everyone wants short early round matches. Not have to face good clay courters and be on the court for 3 hours in week 1.

Safina has to avoid Jelena. She tends to defend Safina's aggressive shots vey well. Safina sure can beat Kuzzy.

Venus wants to avoid playing any player she hasn't played before(surely, it will be a struggle)! She wants to face high ranked opponents, no unknown quantities!

Serena may needs to avoid in early rounds a player who wont give her rhythm in the likes of Radwanska and Schnyder.

Nicole needs to avoid a solid seed for as long as possible. She needs to gain momentum by beating players ranked below her.

Vika needs to avoid Vera(if she plays) and Dinara.

maybe Mauresmo will want to avoid any Czech, especially Nicole or Lucie :lol:

hopefully a good draw for Nicole :scared:

Ivanovic wants to avoid every top 100 player
edit: but she got defeated by coin last year so maybe every top 200 player

Safina wants to avoid Shahar Peer and Serena.
Serena wants to avoid the other 127 people in the draw until the Semis.
Dementieva wants to play all of the top ten within her first 3 matches meaning she will have to take to playing 3 at a time. So long as it is not the second week she will be fine. After that she wants to avoid all of them.
Jelena wants to avoid Kuznetsova and Ivanovic.
Vera wants to avoid gravity.
Venus will want to avoid most. Namely Jelena on clay.
Wozniacki, Azarenka, and Petrova sadly will want to avoid just about anyone ranked in the top 20.
If Ivanovic can get a draw without any qualifiers or wildcards it will bode well for her. I think players that just missed seedings will be best.
Those are my suggestions to the draw gods.

if chak could have tammy 1st round and 2 of the hopeless wildcards to face off for her 2nd round match, id still worry lol

Safina needs to avoid Court Chatrier.

Because if the wind is anything like last year, she is going to die. Safina+Wind creates tennis that is..well not good.

Otherwise, I don't see anyone beating her on the clay until the QF.

Serena needs to face Barbie, Schnyder, Schiavone, Azarenka, Sharapova, Safina and Venus

Revenge will motivate her :armed:

:rolleyes: Ana plays better against top players than against lower-ranked players. I want her to have a relatively easy first round but play more higher-ranked players. Dani maybe? :p

Can only agree: Serena needs to avoid Schnyder in the 4th round and a player like Dulko in the first 3 (she troubled her even on ahrd Court in Melbourne)

Dementieva needs to avoid Wozniake and Venus...the rest might be beatable

Jelena needs to avoid Bartoli! She has lost a couple times to bartoli in the 4th round of grand slams!

Bartoli needs to avoid Zvonerava.. but she not playing :)

Bartoli needs to verse Jankovic in the 4th round.

since she is going to be the 12th seed i think she'll probably verse some like mauresmo, which would be so bad :)

Top players want to avoid dangerous wildcards and qualifiers lurking in the earlier rounds. It's always embarrassing to be booted out in the first round..

everyone should avoid maria in the first couple rounds, just because she has no pressure and can beat all players on a good day

:lol:

that's for sure...i wish she can catch the final (or win) just to be the finalist who has been broken mostly:lol:

anw i think everybody wants to avoid Lisicki and Sharapova as unseeded opponents for sure as like as everyone wanna face as first seed Bammer (that up to now is sucking) and as unseed Maria Kirilenko and Tamarine:lol:

every WC/Q wanna face Flavia Pennetta and Ana Ivanovic as seeds coz they use to suck against lower ranked players:tape:

then...Pennetta wants to face Vee, JJ and Petrova, but doesn't wanna face Safina (0-6 H2H) and Suarez Navarro:tape:
Safina doesn't wanna face Pennetta [just because she had to defend MPs against her this year], so for sure they will meet in 4r/Qf, if Flava won't lose b4:lol:

Kaia Kanepi wishes to be as lucky as last year and find an open draw:p
Bartoli hopes to win at least one match here, while Mauresmo hopes to finally get farther than QF
