I second that emotion!!

It just bites when 2 Asian players get lumped together in
a grand slam draw. After all the freakin hard work to get
there to bring the Asian numbers up in tennis- they have to
cancel each others efforts out with an early, early round
meeting. It's just weird- how many times have we seenn
this happen? there's only a handful of Asian players- yet
they end up playing each other?

stupid draw making.... im soooooooooooooo angry
where can i direct the anger at?
this draw is most certainly mixed by some assholes who dont want many asians to advance to further rounds.... what a crap

i meant the draw was fixed by some culprits...
otherwise this wouldnt have happened...
think a lot of ppl would agree with me...
when Dokic made a similar clame a few years ago, i couldnt agree wiht her as i thought it could never happen...but now im ready to take her side... i totally understand why she stopped coming down to play at aus let alone changed back to yugoslave nationality...

Oh please, they can't help it that only 2 players from Asia are actually good players too!

Henin-Hardenne faces Casanova in the 1st round, who's also... EUROPEAN :eek: :eek: :eek:

That's because they are seeded #1 and #2 in the tournament. That's how seedings work. ;)

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and answer this seriously. The whole point of seedings is to protect top players from meeting each other until the later rounds. Hence, it should be possible for 1 to meet 2 in the final, 3 and 4 shouldn't have to meet 1 and 2 until the semis, 5,6,7 and 8 shouldn't have to play the top 4 till the quarters and so on.

Otherwise they wouldn't bother having seeds, it would just be random. You could still coincidentally get two top Asians (or Aussies, or whatever) in the first round though.

As for whether it's rigged:
1. It can't be rigged, they do it live on TV! and
2. At any rate, most Aussies I know would love the Asians to do well.
