Re: *******Rolling in the Grass - A Wimbledon 2008 Thread!!*******

I'm dreading Roger's first press interviews over here because the media will just go on about his defeat at the FO - whereas Roger wants to put it behind him and move forward. I wonder if Sampras ever had to put up with all this negativity that Roger has to contend with ... I just find it so disrespectful given his accomplishments over the past 4/5 years and for how he has lifted tennis into the media spotlight. Maybe Sampras had it right after all ... just do the minimum required of a champion as far as the media is concerned - and that's it - don't give them anything because they will surely turn on you in the end.

Hopp Rogi, I dont want him to get an easy draw, I want him to get some decent grasscourt players so that he can maintain his good form from Halle. As long as there is a good balance on both sides of the draw I'll be happy.

HOPP ROGI go for your 6th Wimby

My thoughts exactly, if only to prevent all the whining about 'unfair draws' once again. Heck, I even hope that Djoko is on Roger's side of the draw, because 1) I am confident that if both make it that far, Roger will be able to beat him, 2) it would give Roger an excellent chance at showing who's still the best player in the world (and if Djoko beats him - well, so be it!), and 3) I'm sure there will be a bunch of loonies saying that Roger's title - or even just a place in the final - would be 'tainted' because he didn't have Djoko in his side of the draw, if that's indeed the case. You know the drivel.

I did post in on GM. I was being stupid and posted it in ClayD's Wimbledon thread. Seems like MTFers avoid his threads like plague

Roger seeded #1 again in Wimbledon.

Federer, Ivanovic are top seeds at Wimbledon

Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - World No. 1s Roger Federer and Ana Ivanovic have been installed as the top seeds at Wimbledon, which will get underway Monday at the All England Club.

Federer will try to become the first man to capture six straight Wimbledon titles in the Open Era. He equaled Bjorn Borg's long-standing mark of five straight last year at the world's only grass-court major.

The 26-year-old Federer, who is also the reigning four-time U.S. Open champion, owns 12 career Grand Slam titles, only two shy of Pete Sampras' record haul of 14. Sampras tallied seven Wimbledon championships overall, but never more than four in a row.

Federer beat Rafael Nadal in the last two Wimbledon finals.

Ivanovic is the reigning French Open champion and has played in three of the last five major finals on the women's side.

As far as the men's seeds are concerned, Federer is followed by the four-time French Open champion Nadal, Aussie Open titlist Novak Djokovic, Nikolay Davydenko, David Ferrer, two-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy Roddick and 2002 Wimbledon finalist David Nalbandian. Nadal throttled Federer in the finale at Roland Garros earlier this month.

Seeds eight and nine for the men are Richard Gasquet and James Blake, while the 10th seed is Marcos Baghdatis, despite the fact that he's ranked 25th in the world. Baghdatis reached the Wimbledon semifinals in 2006 and the quarters here a year ago.

On the ladies' side, the top-20 seeds are also the top-20 players in the world. Ivanovic is followed by fellow Serb Jelena Jankovic, Aussie Open titlist and former Wimbledon champ Maria Sharapova, U.S. Open runner-up Svetlana Kuznetsova, two-time major finalist Elena Dementieva, two-time Wimbledon winner Serena Williams and defending champion Venus Williams, who beat France's Marion Bartoli in last year's finale at the All England Club. The six-time Grand Slam champion Venus has won the title here on four occasions.

The singles draws will be revealed on Friday.
