There's always a thing called protected seeding or something, but aybe this doesn't apply to him

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

Re: Stupid Question.... WHy Isnt HAAS Seeded in Miami?

What is his ranking this week? Seedings are based on the entry rankings in effect AT THE MOMENT THE DRAW IS MADE. Simple enough.

There is no such thing as a protected seeding. There is a 'protected ranking' but that is for entry purposes only, not seeding in a draw.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

No, Jero. They use the rankings from two weeks before the tournament starts (If I'm not wrong, that's when the inscription closes). Anyways, Haas is ranked 36th, and when the seedings were done he was already down in the ranks cause he lost Autralia's points.

What the heck are you talking about? You sound more confused than Jeronimo.

The entries were due 6 weeks ago on February 11th, Haas was ranked 27 (all tour level tournament entries are done 6 weeks/42 days in advance). The seeds for the main draw are done right before the draw is made, based on the most current rankings (except in the case of Slams which release them a day or two in advance). Haas is ranked 36th this week, and so he is not seeded in Miami. Hope this helps.
