Ah, thanks smu. Surprised I didn't hear about that. Was last year the first year they used this formula? And apologies to deb, wasn't trying to be malicious toward poor Andy.

Nope, last year was not the first year they used the formula, they've used it since 2001. Ancic for one has benefitted from it for the past few years.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

oh! no worries, I did not take it like that. I just get tired of all the 'draw conspiracy theories' sometimes

As Jess said, they've used a formula (though it's changed a few times here and there) for many years.

Gotcha. My bad not knowing of that. Can't believe that wasn't more common knowledge, at least in terms of press coverage. Guess I should have found this site earlier.
