Probably a wise decision by justine so close to RG. Even a minor problem is a good reason to withdrew. Hopefully it's nothing serious!

Wow, the highest ranked player Kim will have to face before the finals is Chanda Rubin!

That seems weird... why would Patty get a first round bye when all the 9-16 seeds don't? It would be more logical for Jelena (who's seeded 9) to take Justine's place in the draw as well as the first round bye... or perhaps I'm missing something here

It's not a fair draw now
Why didn't they plan to do as they did in Berlin: to do some changes in the draw. It's not balanced : Serena,Jelena, Amelie, Mauresmo, Capriati and Monica on the first half, and on the second, Kim and Chanda, who didn't give some solids indications on clay this year.
Lucky draw for Kim, pfff

Well, according the TBE, you can only make drastic changes like that before 4 PM, but Justine withdrew after 4 PM, so only minor changes can be made.

If she withdrew before 4 PM, Jennifer would have taken Justine's spot, Jelena would have taken Jennifer's, and Patty would have taken Jelena's.

I dunno, I guess some stupid rule prevented them from doing that.
