I think thats the best thing.

The best player can win the tournament from any position.

A Djokovic- Nadal Quarterfinal would be not so good but it is only 25% likely to happen.

Is a seeding committee paid for printing out the rankings year after year?

Sporting equivalent of a hate crime Rafa seeded behind any player but Djokovic at RG. Once such a mighty event.

anyway, it's the best decision.it would have been unfair to some other players to change the seeding

Just officially. Imagine what it would look like if Tio went to the press with it.

Because it shows Ferrer is suspectable to chokes.

Murray played dog shit that match, his level was a lot worse than vultures for a lot of it, yet he still won.

Has nothing to do with choking. Just that he's susceptible to more talented players playing to their potential and then he's exposed for the vulture he is.

Funny guy. If Murray reaches a clay Final, you should show your face on here.

True, but it also shows how Murray can play dire, and still win. Apart from the Wawrinka match, Murray has been play dreadful at times this season, and still winning, Murray of the past would not do that.

The only player I now worry about Murray facing is Nadal, because it's been so long.

Rafa to be a floater. I hope King gets a decent draw so he'll reserve all his energy for the Final beatdown.

Let's hope he doesn't retire out of fear again like their previous RG QF encounter
