I thought they wanted to give him the number 4 ranking to avoid a Nadal-Djokovic QF and I didn't like this idea.
But giving him the number one ranking as a sign of appreciation for all he's done would have been very nice. Too bad it won't happen.

For some reason I see a Fedal semi's or quarter. That is what people will want to see.

* Slams Do Not Exist!

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

Maiden GS for Ferrer coming after Djokovic drains Nadal in an epic 5-set SF?

If they did the latter, Fed will be seeded as perpetual #1 in tennis.

The fairest will be if he draws Murray, but i don't think Murray can beat any of the top 7 on clay.

Actually Ferrer has played similar to his level in that match all year long, yet he is winning.

Will be similar to Madrid draw.

Maybe Fed-Nole and Nadal-Murray SF instead of Fedal and Djokovic-Murray.

Probably what most fans of Nadal would want to see. Doubt too many Federer fans would be much looking forward to it...

If they're going to purposely bring the drive left the point in even having the tournament? Just have ND and RN play in the final and be done with it.

Flawless reasoning here.

What's the point of having Wimbledon played at all despite them messing with the ATP rankings for their own seeding system each year?

Yeah, and then Nadal beats Novak and ends up thrashing Ferrer 2, 0 and 0 in the final. Let's see how happy MTF is with this when that happens.

Why change the rules when you can always rig the draw?

Tennis is full of rigged draws so it makes no difference. Boss how the idea of him moving seed was even discussed, shows the top 4 bias going on in the sport.

Tennis is truly about the top 4 (in the eyes of business)
