will Wimbledon seeding committee kick out of Top 8 seeds - Davydenko or Canas to get Henman seeded in top 8?

I'm thinking they will drop Canas.

Is it for sure Canas will play Wimbledon?

If they drop Canas the next year the French Open should drop Roddick or someone else to make room for a top clay court player.

Canas has done good on grass in the Past.

Both of them. Henman and Grosjean to get top eight seeding.

Is Canas injured? I hope not. I can't think of any other reason he wouldn't play at Wimbledon. He's a fine player on any surface grass included. Davydenko on the other hand is hopeless on grass. This seems a no brainer decision to me.

Canas is almost certain to be in the Argentine DC Team for the tie on grass in Australia, so he will definately be playing Wimbledon. And - no - he's not injured - he is in Halle and planning to play doubles (with David) as well as singles to get grass court practice.

Glad to hear that, Rosie. Star had me a little scared there. :)

Certainly better than Davydenko, no? :confused:

I think Wimbledon will stop spitting at the ATP tour and abolish their stupid seeding commitee, finally acknowledging there is an outside tennis world... :p

Nah, they probably won't :rolleyes:

Davydenko, probably :shrug:


Cañas would be unforgivable.

:lol: Yeah you have a point here. Although in fairness even Davydenko (0-7 career on grass) makes Marat look good on grass. And Marat did have that one good grasscourt year back in 2001. It's not impossible he could have another one.

I HAVE DISCUSSED THIS POINT AT LENGTH

See posts in "Nadal - Top 4" thread and in The Wimbledon forum under its own thread.

In essence, both Davydenko and Canas are dropped to #9 and #10, although Agassi for one is likely to withdraw, therefore bumping Davydenko up to #8.

The Wimbledon has a own ranking system.

Entry Ranking Points + Last Year Points in Grass + 75% of Wimbledon (2004).

I'm not sure of % points of "Last Year Points" in Grass and "Wimbledon" but I think it's this.

So Wimbledon don't choice, just has another system.

Roland Garros should reduce Henman in retaliation for stuff like this. It's sad they can't just go by the rankings. Here's hoping his draw isn't the fully and elaborately constructed cakewalk that it normally is.
