Serena's Cincinnati Draw and TV Schedule

The Draw for the Western & Southern Financial Group Women's Open (which begins on Monday) has been released and Venus and Serena are on opposites halves of the draw. That's great news in itself meaning the Williams Sisters can only meet in the Final. Serena (as well as the Top 8 seeds) received a 1st Round BYE. Serena has quite a task ahead of her. Via a "tweet" (Twitter message) she stated that she was not feeling her best and her road to the title pits her against the following challengers:

1st Round: Bye
2nd Round: Qualifier or Rybarikova
3rd Round: J. Zheng or Radwanska
Quarterfinal: J. Jankovic or V. Azarenka
Semifinal: C. Wozniacki or E. Dementieva
Final: Venus or D. Safina
