He needs 250 points to be seeded. Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish, Nadal and maybe Stepanek.

That's too late. The seedings for the AO are determined from this Monday's rankings.

If he wins the title in Brisbane, which will be really tough to do, he will have 1108 points. With Nadal and Fish missing AO, he will need to get to the 34-th place, where now is Granollers with 1110 point (2 more ). So I don't think he can be seeded in Melbourne, because he has to win the title here and then someone else from Top 30 to withdraw But in the first half of 2013 he don't have to defend many points, so I can easily see him seeded at Roland Garros and Wimbledon

Whatever happens, he should go into the AO with a lot of confidence and on this form, I would pick him to beat many of the players ranked above him. He's also created a bit of a buzz this week so there's a good chance he might get to play on one of the televised courts.

I did manage to get a quick "congratulations" in to Mikael Tillstrom after the match but he was busy on his phone. Mikael's wife, Sofia was really lovely to meet and we had a great chat. once I told her how expensive centre court tickets are for the semis she offered to see if she could get me a ticket (which she now has done!!). So i can go to the semi and cheer him on too!! Will post a few pics again too
Lollllll thats great!Happy for u

let's see what will happen tomorrow. if he wins then he would have that dilemma. but even though he could go to sydney and play for pleasure.

i think sydney will not count for seeding on AO.




GRISHO is the future

Sorry, Roger!
