Henman's Unseeded at Wimbly!

When was the last time that happened?

Yet Agassi IS seeded. I still can't get my head around the ranking system. it seems it's better not to play (a la Agassi) than play and not do so wel....

Re: Henman's Unseeded at Wimbly!

It is only possible to be seeded if you're in the top 32. Henman isn't and Agassi is. The vast majority of Agassi's points come from the US Open final last year.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Henman's Unseeded at Wimbly!

I get your drift, Suus, but it's all by formula. One could be a five-time Wimby champ, but none of those titles would be worth a shit for this year's seedings unless it was won in the past two years.

Re: Henman's Unseeded at Wimbly!

Henman never won a grass court title. He has n right to be given speacial treatment and he is no longer in the top 50.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results

Well, the British have never played favorites with him before. Why start now?

Re: Henman's Unseeded at Wimbly!

the system is logical and fair...only top 32 get a seeding

henman has to pray...


maybe in 1997 he wasn't seeded, I am unsure

Re: Henman's Unseeded at Wimbly!

Andre is seeded because he still has a title (LA) and a USO Final on the computer, those two results are pretty much keeping him in the top 32. Henman is not seeded because he is not in the top 32 players who entered, that is all. The formula affects only those players who are seeded, it cannot make someone ranked in the 70s be seeded.

Goran, 3-time finalist, was unseeded in 01
Hell, wasn't he a wildcard the year he won

Re: Henman's Unseeded at Wimbly!

yes he was. he beat Tim in a ridiculous semifinal.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!
