Wimbledon Seedings: Grosjean!

He is No. 40 in the rankings and is seeded 9th? Semifinalist in 2004 or not, that is not logical...

Okay, then he is 27th. I just checked the Top 40 list here. However, I know that Wimbledon can seed players like they want but that is a bit too much IMO.

Re: Wimbledon Seedings: Grosjean!

The Top 40 list here is complied as the projected rankings for next week.

If you want the official stats and records, you must always visit the ATP website.

But if you're a tennis journalist, you don't have to visit the ATP website - you just make up your own facts and figures.

Re: Wimbledon Seedings: Grosjean!

he'll be 40 next week if he doesn't defend his semifinalist points... the top 40 here is updated taking off points and stuff (Thanks to those who take the time to do that for us!)

Anyway, they don't seed "how they want," they plug it into a widely-published formula. Grosjean's ranking dropped but he has had the third best grass results over the past 2 years, which is what is counted in the formula. Hence, his seeding skyrockets.

You on the contrary can`t hide that you are a Brit. Your jokes are so bad, everybody notices where you come from!

I know Wimby follows a special seedings rule bleh bleh, but I still think Grosjean is overrated

Re: Wimbledon Seedings: Grosjean!

Actually, I'm not British. I just live in the UK.

You, on the other hand, are just using someone's supposed nationality as an insult to divert attention from your complete and utter lack of knowledge.
