Who do you think will get the number 1 seed for Wimbledon: Federer or Nadal?

Do you think they will bump Federer to number 1, because he won last year and Nadal didnīt play... If they use that formula they have considering the last two years of grass court matches, then Federer might get the number 1 seed... but it wouldnīt make a lot of diference though

ROGER FEDERER : GOAT

Dustin Brown, Lukas Rosol, Steve Darcis

I'd be shocked if Nadal wasn't the top seed.

I stand corrected. Do you know what the point totals will be?

Re: Who do you think will get the number 1 seed for Wimbledon: Federer or Nadal?

Can't remember offhand, were the seedings for Wimbledon actually announced before Nadal withdrew? I think the bump you're referring to is playing first match on centre court, which is reserved for the defending champion, no matter what his seeding is after the formula is applied. With no defeding champion, Roger opened on centre court as the previous year's runner-up



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

is this the first wimbledon you will watch ? as for the formula, you need to add 100% points earned by a player on grass over the past 12 months but also 75% of the points in the 12 months before that - Nadal did not play any grass tournament last year.

Yup. That's why there's really no need for a poll. It's a straight mathematical formula

Federer is the no.1 seed for the tourney, as he should.

I'm more surprised that Montanes gets a seeding

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 11 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 635-175...
TITLES: 44 and counting...
~ Roger ~ Monty ~ Pics ~ Stronga ~ Berdman ~ Feli ~

no its actually just 75% of the points for the best ONE grass tournament result from 2 years ago

so Rafa is only getting his 2008 wimbledon victory - 2000 x 0.75 = 1500 points

Roger is around 1500 points ahead of Rafa after the formula as he has 2000 points from 2009 and 900 points from 2008 (1200 x 0.75 = 900)
