Re: Wimbledon Seedings

What a shame James isn`t 16th
The most dangerous R3 for top 8 is Mardy Fish for sure
For 9-16 - Blake, Karlovic and Stepanek.

Mardy Fish!

Brian Baker - Steve Johnson - Lleyton Hewitt - Carlos Berlocq - Tommy Haas - Ivo Karlovic - Richard Gasquet - Kevin Anderson - David Ferrer - Michael Russell - Fabio Fognini - Dustin Brown - Somdev Devvarman

Re: Wimbledon Seedings

Why was Haas not bumped up to the #32 seed? Ridiculous that Montanes is ahead of him...the mug did nothing at RG, why here?

Thanks for the gutsy run, Phillies!!! World Series Champs...2010!!!

Re: Wimbledon Seedings

Haas is unseeded because most of the time he sucks, there is always a reason

Re: Wimbledon Seedings

Seeds are the 32 by ranking, only among those can there be changes according to the Wimby seeding system.

then they need to change it, as simple as that. the seeding procedure obviously is no god-given rule every tournament needs to obey. and wimbledon isn't even "every" tournament.

Re: Wimbledon Seedings

Seems fair.

Quick question: If Nadal pulls out before the draw is made, will all the seeds be bumped up one place? or just re-arranged with an extra #33 seed?

What about if he (heaven forbid) pulls out after the draw has been made?

The usual scheme is to bump every one up one place .... so Roger #1 seed

I believe the LL comes in the first round.... someone can correct me if I'm wrong

This way Haas can cause an upset early or maybe just get up 2-0 on Fed and then EPIC FAIL!

Awww.... I don't think anyone wishes Tommy poorly on these boards... he's had such freakishly bad luck his whole career. Of course, if he wins a big one, there will be many on MTF that join the anti-Tommy movement.

Isn't it a bit bizzare that Andy is seeded lower than JMDP here? Does no one feel that they should give SOME weight to previous years? Some...
