But in the just finished French Open, Andre was seeded 6, but ended on the other side of the draw. If he moves up 1, what makes him 1/4 likely to face Fed in quarters. I understand Wimby's seeding is different, but i'd expect a Fed semi draw, not a quarter for moving up 1 seed.
Henman is more likely for a Quarter Fed draw, though i hope he avoids Fed until the semis at least.
