Lindsay Davenport is the number two seed at Bank of the West

Stanford seeds

1. V. Williams
2. Davenport
3. Seles
4. Clijsters
5. Dokic
6. Henin

Rankings

2 Venus Williams
4 Monica Seles
5 Kim Clijsters
6 Jelena Dokic
7 Justine Henin
9 Lindsay Davenport

I'm not sure I get this. It's not her injury protected ranking. That would be #1, and she's seeded #2. THe player who really suffers is Dokic, who is now guaranteed a pretty tough QF match.

As far as I am concerned, the one who got screwed is Monica. 2nd seed is a sweet position, and she earned it.

not fair protected ranking doesnt necessarily means getting the #2 seed! she should be seeded 6th instead based on the current ranking

irma has disabled reputation
maybe they didn't want her to give a protected ranking of 1 so they gave her three.
never sure how the wta works!

Miss Jennifer Capriati is entered at San Diego.

She's not on your list, sweetie!

I think it is very fair! It's a good compromise: Lindsay was #1 before she got injured, and therefore none of the players getting bumped down are getting screwed, and although Lindsay was #1 she wasn't really an authentic #1 with no major finals, so she isn't getting screwed either.

Frankly, I think its stupid some of you are so bent out of shape how Lindsay is seeded. This is what injury protection is for folks.

Now somebody said Jennifer is in the event. If that is true, then the seeds posted here are not correct anyway.

Lindsay has been seeded #2 for Stanford , not San Diego, she may well be seeded #2 there too, but nothing has been said about that as yet.

I agree with you there, this isn't fair... I like Lindsay a lot! No doubt about that! But this isn't fair for Monica!

Kart is an unknown quantity at this point
This is unfair on Monica, what's the point of playing for the ranking if you don't get the seeding ?

I haven't seen the draw yet but if Seles ends up in Venus' half and Linday doesn't reach the final I think it will be very off .

I don't see what's unfair... Lindsay is one of the best hardcourtplayers in the world, may be THE best.

I don't think it is a problem, Lindsay is a great hard court player. I think they won't seed her above Jen in San Diego though.
