Seeds 17-32

If No. 12-seed Venus Williams is in the same form that won her Wimbledon, she could be the biggest threat in the women's field.

17. Tatiana Golovin: Highest-ranked Frenchie turned in some fine results with Mats Wilander in her corner.

18. Shahar Peer: Slowed a bit lately, but usually a force on hard courts.

19. Sybille Bammer: If Moms can win a few rounds, it will cement one of the nicer stories in women's tennis this year.

21. Alona Bondarenko: A future top-10er.

26. Sania Mirza: She has been playing some of the best tennis of her career these past six weeks.

32. Agnieska Radwanka: Steadily climbing the charts.

Dark-horse nation

Meghann Shaughnessy: She sprained her ankle last week, but has been playing some of the better tennis of her career lately.

Agnes Szavay: Though she nearly had to qualify, the Hungarian has been on a roll of late.

Victoria Azarenka: A future top-10er.

First-round matches to watch

(And there aren't many, thanks to the 32 seeds)

Bartoli vs. Alexa Glatch: Big chance for young American to make news.

Katarina Srbotnik vs. Alicia Molik: Arguably the two finest net games in women's tennis.

Francesca Schiavone vs. Nathalie Dechy: A decent Tier-II final matchup.

Peer vs. Meilen Tu: Feisty American veteran has a decent chance to spring an upset.

Vania King vs. Shaughnessy: Two best American hopes not named Williams meet in round one.
