It's not a bad draw at all...considering, just worried about Kiri's inconsistency. She played well in Rome even against Serena she would have beaten other players with the way she played. And Aga isn't winning that many matches lately plus its not her best surface. Well good luck, get that RG seed.

We will see...Maria can beat her if she's aggressive but it won't be easy as on clay, it's more difficult to hit winners and Radwanska defends well. It's gonna be a long match i think and i hope that Maria won't be frustrated by the pusher:o

It was closer than the score suggests well where Kiri's service games are concerned, went to deuce in almost all of them sometimes having several GPs. Disappointing return games though, only 2 chances to break Radwanska's serve. I just don't understand how she can never maintain her form for very long, she should be high on confidence not losing 2 and 2 to Radwanska on clay. Here's to hoping she'll get it going again at RG, lots of points on offer.

Aga you better give Kiri the doubles title now :(

Normally, she would be top seed in RG. She won enough points this week to rise of about 6 rankings ; so if I hadn't make matter when I was counting the points, she should be 31 by next monday.

It’s not great when you have to play your doubles partner, but it happens in tennis. When you’re on the court you have to look at them as your opponent. Maria wrote me a cute message afterwards, ‘Today was your turn to win and well done’, so we’re fine! Now we will do our best together in the doubles

Dulgheru, Safarova, and Ana can pass Maria by reaching the quarters. If those 3 pass her, Maria will be ranked #33 and need someone to withdraw from the French Open in order to be seeded. Everybody else has to get to the semis at least.

Safarova passed Maria today, so Maria's tentatively the #31 seed.

No. Petkovic can pass Maria with a semifinal. Ana and Dulgheru can pass Maria with a quarterfinal. Everybody else would need a final or better.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of withdrawls of seeded players from the French Open. That often happens.

That was with last year's Madrid points included. If Safarova had lost in the 2nd round then Maria would be seeded ahead of her.

Petkovic can pass her with a semifinal. She plays Rezai in the 3rd round and if she wins she would play most likely Jankovic in the quarters or less likely Medina Garrigues.
