How will the players be seeded? According to their rankings or according to their performance on hardcourts??

so what ae the chances of Monica being seeded in the first 8, if it is also based on previous performances? considering Dokic is not playing too... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

No chance for that to happen, I think.<br />They will just follow the ranks.

I don't see who of the top should give their spot to Monica.

I also think that the ranking would be the one to go with. So if this happens, any of the top 8 except Lindsay & Venus would be threatened to be out in round of 16 because of Monica.

I hope its ranking or else Lina will miss out <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

she could still miss out if Conchita wins a match on the Gold Coast.

As queenlindsay says:

If Monica would be seeded 9, everybody in the top 8 ( except Lindsay& venus) would be endangered to be oust in the round of 16.

I really hope Monica would'nt be in Lindsay or venus bracket in the round of 16.

It's rather tough to go past the rankings without upsetting a few players.

TOT: she still only needs a win no matter where she plays.

Is any one really sure of whether seeding is done based solely on rankings? Or is it also based on past performances??

it's kinda of scary no matter how the seedings are decided... cos there are players like Mary Pierce, Anna Kournikova, Monica, Patty Schnyder(?), Iva Majoli, Barbara Schett... all capable of causing major upsets to the top 8... it's going to be an exciting Oz open! <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />

Isn't Lina ranked 34th, and Dokic, Tauziat and Huber aren't playing...so wouldn't that make her 31st and Conchita already in a seed at 32nd?
