Serena Williams at No. 28 doesn’t make sense. She’ll face top players early in the women’s draw and prevent better players from getting to the later rounds — where they should be competing. That is what the seeding system is all about!
Three-time U.S. Open champion Serena Williams could face No. 4-seeded Victoria Azarenka in the third round, and two-time winner Venus Williams could meet No. 22 Sabine Lisicki in the second.
