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!

Ah very smart :) No riscs :) She has made her point already...she's the top clay court player. A break won't do any harm before her beloved RG ;)

Yeah! You go Justine! I thought you were stupid playing week in week out before RG. That shows she has a head!

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 :confused:

It's not a fair draw now :mad: :mad:
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 :mad: :mad:

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.

Smart move from Justine. After having beaten Serena and Kim, she knows she's ready for the clay.
Boy, has she set her mind on that Roland Garros trophy or not...

The official site is mentioning "Left knee tendinitis" as reason for the withdrawal (in the pdf-drawfile itself)...

so, it seems indeed wise to take a break two weeks before RG :)
