Post your "preferred" draw for Monica's road to Grand Slam #10 here:
Here are the seeds:

Women's Singles
1 Serena Williams (USA)
2 Kim Clijsters (BEL)

3 Venus Williams (USA)
4 Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL)

5 Amelie Mauresmo (FRA)
6 Lindsay Davenport (USA)
7 Jennifer Capriati (USA)
8 Chanda Rubin (USA)

9 Daniela Hantuchova (SVK)
10 Jelena Dokic (YUG)
11 Anastasia Myskina (RUS)
12 Monica Seles (USA)
13 Elena Dementieva (RUS)
14 Eleni Daniilidou (GRE)
15 Magdalena Maleeva (BUL)
16 Ai Sugiyama (JPN)

17 Amanda Coetzer (RSA)
18 Meghann Shaughnessy (USA)
19 Patty Schnyder (SUI)
20 Elena Bovina (RUS)
21 Lisa Raymond (USA)
22 Vera Zvonareva (RUS)
23 Anna Pistolesi (ISR)
24 Conchita Martinez (ESP)
25 Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
26 Silvia Farina Elia (ITA)
27 Alexandra Stevenson (USA)
28 Clarisa Fernandez (ARG)
29 Elena Likhovtseva (RUS)
30 Paola Suarez (ARG)
31 Laura Granville (USA)
32 Francesca Schiavone (ITA)

Round 1 and 2 have to be someone outside the Top 32. Round 3 is #17-32. Round 4 is #5-8. Quarters, semis, final can be anyone.

R1: d. Klara Koukalova (for revenge reasons)
R2: d. Nadia Petrova (to show she can do it)
R3. d. 20 Elena Bovina (only because they've never played)
R4: d. 7 Jennifer Capraiti (she's never lost to JCap on clay)
QF: d. 4 Justine Henin-Hardenne (revenge, no Williams, etc)
SF: d. 2 Kim Clijsters (doing this means #1/#3 on same side - no Willi final)
F: d. 5 Amelie Mauresmo (personally I'd like Momo to get to the final)

Doing all that returns Monica safely to the Top 10 and clinches her 10th GS title. Why not, right?

I sure hope others do this list. But looking at yours 'seles', I really like the path that you have drawn. Very good choices! :bounce:

sorry I want an All-Williams Final :D

ok ok ok

SF W Serena Williams 6-7(4) 6-2 6-3
F W Venus Williams 1-6 6-3 12-10

To prove a couple of things, revenge, never count out a champion, and that Monica can hang out there for awhile

The draw is out!!!! And guess who Monica has to play in her 1st rd - Nadia Petrova. :rolleyes: LOL!!!!
That is the opponent that Monica had to retire to in her last match!!! Guess Monica will get her rematch quicker then she expected I bet.
