Then something is fishy or strange here becuase I assume that Venus withdrew from doubles, then she would have informed the organizers before the seedes came out. The article about her withdrawing was posted before the seeds were even announced so either the article is bogus or the seeds are. For now, I think I will go with the seeds.

The only other thing I could think of is that the seeds were decided before Venus allegedly decided to withdraw, but it still doesn't make any sense because if she knew she would not be able to play, then why would she and Serena ask for a wildcard? Plus, don't some of you think Serena was too forthcoming with what is really wrong with Venus? I am beginnig to wonder if this article is a fake or just has loads of misinformation?

Wimbeldon said when they awarded the wild card that Venus and Serena would not beed seeded number one, only that they would be seeded, which they were. The question is now, are they playing.
