Probably a better top 10 seeds than the Wimbledon seeding committee will chose. Only change would be increase in position of Hewitt.

I'd have put Calleri in, but he is too injury prone.

interesting to see how some people consider blake and nadal as top 10 favourites.

blake's grass record over the last four years is 4-8, his best result in wimbledon is a second round. and i think you all remember the davis cup losses against gonzalez and capdeville (both famous grass specialists) a few weeks ago.

for nadal, it will be interesting to see his performance in wimbledon, but he will not reach the final ever. i prefer picking gaudio and hernandez instead.

Nadal lost to Gilles Mullers 6-4 4-6 6-3 6-4 last year. I was there, Muller played a good match, and Nadal got annoyed very easily. Nadal also lost at the first hurdle last year at Halle to Waske, so his record doesn't give great confidence about a run at Wimbledon.

I dont need a list.

1-9. Federerer - why? HES BEEN UNBEATEN 3 years in a row. Nadals been unebaten on clay for like what? a year? If Federer Wins Halle (which he will) and win the first round of wimbledon, he will beat borgs 41 grass wins.
10. Roddick - you dont win Queens 3 years in a row if you suck on grass, i think playing that DC tie gave him some confidecne, which makes up for his houston loss besides playing haas on clay, hes not borg, he cant go from grass to clay or vice versa that easily.

done.

I just want to see Federer vs. Rafa, and Safin playing at his top. If he is, I'd put him at #2.

One person that I haven't seen make anyone's list, surprisingly is Berdych. What do you guys think of him this year?

done.

Don't forget that 3 years on grass for Federer is just 6 tournaments (including 3 optionals). How many clay tournies will Nadal play in 3 years ?

This kind of streak is counted in number of matches, not years.

Yes, Ljubicic "stinks" on grass but then he also "stinkss" on clay, yet he seems to have done quite well in Monte-Carlo.

This year, Ljubicic doesn't seem to suck on any surface.

hmm... I guess I'm not as confident that Gasquet, Blake, and Safin will do very well here this year... but I don't mind being proven wrong, I just think someone like Grosjean, Ferrer, and perhaps Davydenko will do better at Wimbledon this year...

Jaap
04-23-2006, 09:00 AM
Obviously Federer will win barring any injuries.

I think Wimbledon is playing less and less like a grass court these days so the hard court players - Ljubicic, Blake, Gonzalez, Baghtatdis, Berdych, Safin and Haas may be threats as the ball sits up more. I think Nadal will do a bit better but will get knocked out in the 4th round or quarters.

Then you have the proven grass court performers - Roddick, Hewitt and Nalbandian who all have good records at Wimbledon. Henman or Agassi may have one final swansong although I doubt it.

Then you have the youngsters - Murray, Gasquet and Monfils...will it be the grand slam breakthrough for these?

What of the big serving freaks? Karlovic, Tursunov, Rusedski, Arthurs, Guccione. Maybe one of these will get a bit of luck and make their way through the draw?
