Given who has already qualified, and who is in contention to qualify, who would your ideal groups be?
I think Jennifer won't qualify (and won't be in a state to play even if she did, and I think Venus is going to edge out Vera :()

I want them to be:

1) Davenport, Kuznetsova, S. Williams, V. Williams

2) Mauresmo, Myskina, Dementieva, Sharapova

So many good matchups here: Myskina v. Dementieva; Davenport v. Kuznetsova rematch; Davenport v. Venus rematch; Williams v. Williams....it would be SO exciting.

I actually wish that all the Russians could be put in a group together....wouldn't that be so exciting/interesting!!!

What do you all think?

I want to see Lindsay grouped with 3 2004 slam winners and beat them, wont happen though.
1) Davenport, Dementieva, Sharapova, Venus Williams
2) Mauresmo, Myskina, Capriati, Serena

Marketable: Maria Sharapova
Dementeiva does not like Sharapova or Venus and has beaten Lindsay in YEC 3 mp down.
Davenport saw Venus as her nemesis.
And Maria is super popular, so Venus will hate her.
I thought this will be great.

Marketable: Serena/Capriati classic, 3 former French Open winners.
Mauresmo doesnt like anyone in the group.
Myskina wants to prove herself, and she could with no Russian friend in sight.

Its not WHAT u want them to be

they split them simply on the Race List

One of each into one pot and drawn out
#1 and #2
#3 and #4

I'm pretty sure we have that in mind, separating 1/2 and 3/4

Yes, that is what I did.

But the system doesn't necessarily mean that one group will have 1,3,5,7 and the other one will be 2,4,6,8.

There could be 1,4,5,8 and 2,3,6,7 for instance...

That's impossible. Myskina and Kuznetsova are the only Russians who have a chance of being a group without any of their compatriots.
