Why did they even discuss it . Rules are rules. No one is bigger than the rules.

You are underestimating Tio Toni´s subtlety here, an outright declaration the seeds will not be according to ranking would not be his style...

As much as I would love to see a Nadal vs. Murray slam final, having one at Roland Garros is just cruel

I want it at Wimbledon!

The two slams that Murray really stands next to no chance against Rafa... I'll pass on both of those finals.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

That's right, no one can touch RG but Rafa (peed on the clay and claimed territory since 2005 )

Re: RG: Announces it will seed according to ranking

the fact they were even thinking about this is ridiculous. so federer should always be top seed at wimbledon and us open? ridiculous

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

Re: RG: Announces it will seed according to ranking

«Au vu de ce que représente Nadal à Paris, soit le meilleur joueur de l’histoire du tournoi, il nous apparaissait incongru qu’il arrive ici avec le dossard 4 ou 5.» La décision a finalement été prise de ne pas intervenir dans l'ordre des têtes de série. «Le mal était fait, on évoquait un tripatouillage du tableau, a regretté Gilbert Ysern. Ce qui devait être un symbole fort, en fait un hommage, était assimilé à de la basse cuisine.»

"Given what Nadal means to Paris, namely that he is the best player in the history of the tournament, it seemed to us incongruous that he could come here wearing the number 4 or 5 shirt." In the end, the decision was taken not to intervene in the seedings. "The damage is done, people talked of tampering with the draw," regretted Gilbert Ysern. "What was to have been a strong gesture, in fact a homage, was likened to a low art".

Good decision in the end!

Re: RG: Announces it will seed according to ranking

Who cares, when he was seeded #1 in 09 and 11 he played like shit. He's better at silencing the French, or at the very least pissing them off
