Cash disputes Hewitt's demotion
Former Wimbledon champion Pat Cash has hit out at All England organisers for dropping Australian Lleyton Hewitt to number three seed in this year's event.
The 2002 Wimbledon champion is second in the world rankings, but organisers handed the number two seeding to world number four Andy Roddick.
"I think it's a real slap in the face," Cash told BBC Sport.
"It's not fair that they are changing it around - the guys work all year to get rankings to win the Grand Slams."
Second seed Roddick, who lost in last year's final to Roger Federer, cannot meet the Swiss top seed until the final of this year's tournament.
But Hewitt could meet the strong favourite in the semi-finals.
"Lleyton Hewitt is the number two player in the world," said Cash.
"He should have stayed number two. He is a Wimbledon champion. He is the 2005 Australian Open finalist.
"It has certainly given Roddick a boost that I don't think he deserves over Hewitt. The rankings are there for a reason. They are fair."
