The 2nd Seed domination of 2008

I just realized something: of the 6 most prestigious tournaments in 2008, the 2nd seed had an 83% success rate, winning 5 of the 6.

Australian Open - Djokovic (seeded 3rd)
French Open - Nadal (seeded 2nd)
Wimbledon - Nadal (seeded 2nd)
Summer Olympics - Nadal (seeded 2nd)
U.S. Open - Federer (seeded 2nd)
Tennis Masters Cup - Djokovic (seeded 2nd)

Just an interesting note in the wild 2008 season

That is a very interesting statistic. Not much for me to say about it, but yeah, good pick up.
