who will be the lucky one (of first 4 seeds) that will receive Nadal in 4th rd?
also the first 4 seeds could face in quaterfinals the seeded between 9 to 12:

9 Coria, Guillermo
10 Agassi, Andre
11 Johansson, Joachim
12 Ljubicic, Ivan

The first thing to win RG, will be having a good draw, so ....BEST LUCK IN DRAW to GAUDIO , CORIA , NALBI , CAÑAS (and PUERTA)

On entry list #76 & #91 they have names & below another name followed by @91 etc. Does this mean that the name originally listed for #76 & 91 have pulled out & the names listed below should be inserted there as replacements?

jtipson

The @ sign indicates that this player's ranking (to the right of the @ sign) is a protected ranking. It's not their real ranking (which is probably lower) but because they've been injured they are allowed to use this protected ranking to gain access to a certain number of tournaments.

I guess they would prefer to give a WC to a young guy than a 30-something guy, plus he's not a claycourter. Its a shame, though, because his ranking isn't far off.

Since Hewitt's out, will Nadal be #4 seed? Or will they seed him #1 since he's won everything on clay he's entered?

Why does Monfils get a WC, since his entry ranking is now in the 80's - or will they give his WC to someone else?

The entry list for the French Open is always done a few weeks in advance. Monfils ranking was below the top 104 when the list was out. Each tournament has an entry list that is established a few weeks in advance. For players who drop out of the tournament like Calleri for the French open they are replaced by the best alternate player whose ranking was not high enough to be on the initial list. Hope I'm clear. To better uinderstand the concept I suggest you go to www.stevegtennis.com. Go to the message board that's there and look into the 2005 tournament entries.

Fee
05-17-2005, 02:59 AM
Entry lists for ATP events are done 42 days (6 weeks) in advance (Challengers are done 21 days in advance). For instance, the entry list for Wimbledon came out last week and it is based on the rankings for May 9th. Look at the date of the very first post in this thread and then look at the rankings for that week and that should answer most of your questions.

The seedings are based on this week's rankings.

05-17-2005, 06:53 PM
So entry lists are made up 6 weeks in advance - thank you.

Now about seeds & their placement. I believe they do seedings the week before @the Majors -yes? But my real puzzlement comes w/placement of seeds on the ladder - what's required & what's left to whim of tournament directors. I thought placement was fixed, but it seems only one that's fixed is that #1 & #2 are in opposite halves.

I thought by definition it was set up for semis of 1v. 4 & 2 v 3. Then quarters were laid out so that 1 v. 5, 2 v 6...4 v 8; then eighths placed on ladder 1 v. 9, 2 v. 10.......and so on. Yet, it's not this way always. I'd appreciate it if anyone could clarify.

Deboogle!.
05-17-2005, 06:56 PM
No, it's more random than that.

Well first of all, I believe that technically speaking, the slams are free to pick their own seeds, but only Wimbledon varies from that (by using some sort of mystery formula that takes previous grass results into account).

You are correct that the #1 seed is always the first name on the draw, and the #2 seed is always the last name of the draw. But the rest is more random. 3 and 4 are randomly placed - one at the top and one at the bottom. so #1 can play EITHER 3 or 4 depending on the draw. Same for #2. The top four seeds can face seeds 5-8 as early as the quarterfinals. But it's not specifically set for 1 and 5, 2 and 6, etc. It's random - 1 could face 8, or 2 could, or 3 could, etc.

I hope this helps?

TenHound
05-18-2005, 03:27 AM
Debstah, Do you mean random literally - as they draw to determine which seed of #5->8 is placed opposite #1->#4 in quarters? Otherwise, it's somebody's conception of who should be favored. How will they place Coria & Gasquet is a big decision - how early will either RF or RN have to face him, since one could argue he's the fave, or he & RN are, & who's half will he be in. Do they debate that? Not to mention the HUGE Decision - now that Raffy should be #4 w/Hewitt out, the Biggest Decision is whether you put him in RF's 1/2? I would say no, since #2  are much much weaker - you'd compromise the tournament. To me this argues for having a standard placement for seeds.

Deboogle!.
05-18-2005, 03:42 AM
Yes, I mean literally random. Seeds 1-4 are seeded to face 5-8 in the quarters, but how they are paired up after that is random. Assuming that Nadal is seed 4 if Hewitt pulls out, no one gets to decide whether he is going to be in Roger or Andy's half - it is random. That's just the way it works - at every slam.

For example, last year Moya and Coria were seeds 5 and 3, respectively. They played each other in the Quarterfinals. Should that have happened? No, but that's the 'luck of the draw' unfortunately. Again, assuming Coria pulls out, Roger as #1 seed could have either Marat or Rafa in his half and then any one of Gaudio, Agassi, Henman, or Coria in his QF. And so on.

This is how the draw is done in GS (128-players bracket)

#1 is literally the top seed - slot #1
#2 is placed at the bottom - slot #128
#3 and 4 are drawn to slots 33 (top of 2nd quarter) and 96 (bottom of 3rd quarter)
#5 to 8 are drawn to slots 32 (bottom 1st qtr), 64 (bottom 2nd qtr), 65 (top 3rd qtr), 97 (top 4th qtr)
#9 to 12 are drawn to slots 17, 49, 80, 112 (opposite slot of sections of 5-8 seeds)
#13 to 16 are drawn to slots 16, 48, 81, 113 (opposite slot of sections of 1-4 seeds)
#17 to 24 are drawn to opposite slots of sections of seeds 9-16 (IE slots 9, 24, 41, 56, 73, 88, 105, 120)
#25 to 32 are drawn to opposite slots of sections of seeds 1-8 (IE slots 8, 25, 40, 57, 72, 89, 104, 121)
The non-seeds are drawn randomly to the remaining slots

Fee, thank you - I never knew that either. Could you clarify this - 2 are out today, so there should be two lucky losers. but what if both those guys win in 3rd round? Is it then that the top 2 seeds in the 3rd round who lose their 3rd round matches become the actual lucky losers in fact? Otherwise, if Warinka wins, there's not an extra slot filled. Or, in practice do lucky losers who know they're in anyway, generally lose 'cuz they just want to get off the court as quickly as possible?

Hurley
05-20-2005, 04:18 AM
Is it then that the top 2 seeds in the 3rd round who lose their 3rd round matches become the actual lucky losers in fact?

Exactly.

As for your final question...I suppose people who know they're in, like Wawrinka, walk a fine line in their final-round qualifying matches between tanking and not over-exerting themselves. One doesn't want to damage one's reputation, and I know that the ATP is more than happy to fine tankers (see: Safin, Marat).

And I'm not sure it's like this on the ATP, but, to make a long and boring story short, on the WTA you get more ranking points from being a qualifier than from being a lucky loser, assuming each of those players go out in the same round. Obviously if the LL wins the title they'll still get a shitload of points :p

nitsansh
05-20-2005, 02:51 PM
The lucky losers are selected from the 3rd round losers in order of the latest ranking list, which is the same ranking that is used to determine the seeds in this tournament.
Players have to sign in to be considered for lucky losers spots at each day of play until all players at the original draw have played.
On rare occasions, all 3rd round losers enter as lucky losers and there are more vacancies, so the 2nd round losers could be lucky as well.

It's the same in ATP, but less significant. In Grand-Slams and Masters series, qualifiers get 3 champions race points and 15 entry ranking pts, while 3rd round qualifying losers get 8 entry ranking pts and no champions race pts.
In other ATP tournaments, qualifyers get 1 or 2 CR and 5 or 10 ER pts and qualifying losers get none.
