Question Will Rafa be #2 seed at Wimbledon 2006?

The question is simple. I think Rafa deserves this and should be #2 seed. There is so much gap between Rafa and Roddick (2165 points). I think this time that stupid formula won't help Roddick to be #2 seed. Even if it helped, Roddick shouldn't be #2 seed because he doesn't deserve that place. I didn't mention other players to be #2 seed because according to the stupid formula they won't get too much points. Only exception is at Roddick's side. What are your opinions?

No. He shouldn't be and he won't be #2 seed.

He will. According to my estimations though. So you can't be sure.

Re: Will Rafa be #2 seed at Wimbledon 2006?

He almost certainly will be, so long as Wimbledon is using a formula for seedings. It's simply too absurd to find a formula that will make up for the 2165 point gap between he and Roddick Roddick's Wimbledon final only chops than down to 1465.

The ONLY way they could do it would be to go with subjective seedings and not use a formula... something they stopped doing a while a go

Whether or not he *should* be depends on whether or not you think that slams should seed by surface.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

nalbandian and ljubicic have more chance to be seeded #2 than roddick...
even ancic, but nadal has a big amount of points....and that would be determinant.

Re: Will Rafa be #2 seed at Wimbledon 2006?

Roddick should not be number 2 seed, and Hewitt should not be inflated to top 5 seed, his ranking is too low.

Hopefully Roger, Andy and Lleyton will all be in one half of the draw.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

This is from last year

Quote:
. Take INDESIT ATP Entry Ranking points at Monday, June 13, 2005
· Add 100% of points earned for all grass court tournaments in the previous 12 months
· Add 75% of points earned at a player’s best grass court event in the 12 months before that.

Someone had it last year but I think it was something like the last 4 years' worth of points on grass, but each previous year depreciates in value by 25%

So, 2005 = 100%, 2004 = 75%, 2003 = 50% and 2002 = 25%.

Can anyone elaborate on that? Thanks

Saumon your question and the question posed by the thread title are both valid.

I thought Rafa should've been the number one seed at the FO this year but I know they went strictly by the rankings. They can seed him high at Wimby and give him a crappy draw.

It'll be interesting to see what they do.
