As you can see, I lack a certain amount of respect for this .
It's something Wimbledon does in order that it's seeding has some relation with reality. Though Roland Garros needs it rather more desperately. Look at last year, when Moya and Coria met in the quarter finals, while the bottom quarter was entirely devoid of clay court talent.
It's just a shame Wimbledon allowed itself to be bullied into adopting the formula system - all that means is that we're stuck with silly people like Safin this year and Coria last year being top 4 seed, despite Safin already having declared that he's given up on grass.
