I'm thinking they will drop Canas.

Is it for sure Canas will play Wimbledon?

If they drop Canas the next year the French Open should drop Roddick or someone else to make room for a top clay court player.

Egalite!

Canas has done good on grass in the Past.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Both of them. Henman and Grosjean to get top eight seeding.

Is Canas injured? I hope not. I can't think of any other reason he wouldn't play at Wimbledon. He's a fine player on any surface grass included. Davydenko on the other hand is hopeless on grass. This seems a no brainer decision to me.

Re: Whom do you think ..

Canas is almost certain to be in the Argentine DC Team for the tie on grass in Australia, so he will definately be playing Wimbledon. And - no - he's not injured - he is in Halle and planning to play doubles (with David) as well as singles to get grass court practice.

Certainly better than Davydenko, no?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I think Wimbledon will stop spitting at the ATP tour and abolish their stupid seeding commitee, finally acknowledging there is an outside tennis world...

Nah, they probably won't

I HAVE DISCUSSED THIS POINT AT LENGTH

See posts in "Nadal - Top 4" thread and in The Wimbledon forum under its own thread.

Re: Whom do you think ..

In essence, both Davydenko and Canas are dropped to #9 and #10, although Agassi for one is likely to withdraw, therefore bumping Davydenko up to #8.
