How the Wimbledon Seeding Formula Works
The Top 32 players in this week's ATP Entry Ranking are all seeded. Seeded players are then re-ordered by a formula that rewards past grass court performances. The formula works this way:

-. Take Entry Ranking Points at June 16, 2003
-. Add 100% of points earned at grass court tournaments in the previous 12 months *
-. Add 75% of points from the player's best grass court result in the 12 months before that


Taking Entry Ranking Points at May 17, 2004

* I made a mistake and added only the points from clay tournaments include in a player's best five tournaments diferent form GS, TMS and TMC. There could be a few changes (that's not too much points)

Surely this is quite out of date? Isn't Henman either 5 or 6 now in the seedings standings, given the fact that he is projectively 6 now in the entry system, 7 if Nalby wins tomorrow.

This is not the entry system ;). It's just to show how the seeds would have been fixed using the Wimbledon formula for RG.

Naldo it would've been the RG seeding lol

Actually Bob Larson did this too, and according to him Andy would still have been above Guille by just a few points :lol:
