Is this official?!

If it is ... This would be the worst day ever for me. First Venus pulls out, then this shuffling in the draw and no MoMo-JuJu final possible. GRRRR ...

Shouldn't they just replace Daniela with Venus and Daniela with the 33th seed. It seems more logical to me.

The hypothetical 4th round would be: Kim-Vera, Katarina-MoMo, Lindsay-Amanda, Conchita-Chanda, Jennifer-Elena D, Sugiyama-Daniela, Anastasia-Maggie, Elena B-Justine

This is what they SHOULD do, according to rules:

Move 5th seed Mauresmo into Venus' spot.
Move 9th seed Hantuchova into Mauresmo's spot.
Move 13th seed Zvonareva into Hantuchova's spot.
Move 17th seed Shaughnessy into Zvonareva's spot.
Move 25th seed Daniilidou into Shaughnessy's spot.
Make Srebotnik 33rd seed, and move her into Daniilidou's spot.

Whether they will or not is a different story, but this withdrawal is early enough for them to follow the rules.

All they are doing are putting the next seeded players in their respective seeding brackets had Venus never been there. It's very fair. Which means they probably won't do it. :rolleyes: Hantuchova would have been a Top 8 seed, so they move her to a Top 8 slot in the draw, and so on.

This would make Mauresmo the fourth-highest seeded player in the draw, so they give her a Top 4 slot. Which means she will be opposite Capriati in her quarter.

The likely scenario is to move the next highest ranked player into the draw as seed #33, that'd be Katerina Srebotnik. She would move into Venus' spot as seed #33, and a lucky loser would move into Katerina's spot in the maindraw. They don't reshuffle the entire draw, moving many players like that. Am I wrong?

Yep, they only do that when someone pulls out very close to the start of the tourney.

joaco - Actually, Justine has it easy to the final. Kim has Amelie, Lindsay, Chanda, etc. in her half. With Venus out, Justine just has an injured Capriati to contend with.

Amelie will now be on Justine's side, and Hantuchova will now be Kim's QF matchup.

Knizzle - is that official? At Wimbledon they just moved in a 33rd seed...there was no real reshuffling.

Shriver said that's what would happen, and also it's in the rules. When that happened at Wimby it was right before the tourney started right??
