Re: Playing to seeds in Grand Slams

An update for the first three events of 2013.

The top 4 seeds all made the semifinals in Australia; this was the 15th time overall, and 4th in Australia. It also marked back-to-back years that the top 4 seeds all advanced that far.

Roland Garros saw a #3 vs. #4 final, a fairly rare occurance in GSs. It was the 56th final without a top 2 seed, and the 23rd such RG final.

Wimbledon's 1 vs. 2 final was the 13th for the event, and the 40th overall. Just 6 of the top 16 seeds made the last 16, the lowest number in four years, since RG 2008. Still, it's a long way from the Wimbledon record, set in 2002, when just 2 of the top 16 survived to their seeding.
