Re: Wimbledon seeds announced

I hope Nadal will be seeded to play Lopez or Llodra, but of course it will be a grass court giant like Simon or Seppi.

Joachim Johansson / Ivo Karlovic / Andy Roddick / Ernests Gulbis / John Isner / Chris Guccione / Feliciano Lopez / Jo-Wilfried Tsonga / Ivan Ljubicic / Mario Ancic / Michael Llodra / Gilles Muller / Xavier Malisse / Max Mirnyi / Nicolas Mahut / Robin Söderling / Frank Dancevic / Olivier Rochus / Robert Kendrick

Actually Seppi has more chances to beat Nadal on grass than Feli.

Re: Wimbledon seeds announced

I would love if Faker draws Soderling in the first round.
O what a story that would be at MTF.

Re: Wimbledon seeds announced

I'm surprised they have Ferrer seeded above Roddick.

Re: Wimbledon seeds announced

Baghdatis' ranking is 25. He's seeded 10th! A great example of the alternative seeds of Wimbledon.

Yeah, I see that they bumped Baggy and Hewitt based on past Wimby/grasscourt form so it's a surprise that they have Ferrer ahead of Andy.

You know there is an actual formula to determine the seeds. You make it seem as if they are just placing guys wherever they feel like

Re: Wimbledon seeds announced

Ferrer is quite a lot of points ahead of Roddick in the rankings.

Andy only got to QF last year and 3rd round previous year, and went out in the SF of Queens this year, so he doesn't have an enormous number of grass points to add.
