Yes it is weird Jazz, and I've no idea why they've done this (never happened before to my knowledge), but I guess it something to do with the injury situation affecting some top players at the moment. As far as I can see, at least 4 top, would-be seeded players have expressed doubts about their participation at Wimbledon this year - David, Marat, Juan-Carlos Ferrero and Calleri. And I guess whereas replacing one see that dropped out at the last minute would be easy enough - 4 would make a fiasco of the whole seedings system. Just a guess anyway.
