Yes, Nadal was trying to forget that match during whole 7 months

Why is one set of numbers more important than the other? When did common sense get replaced with slavish devotion to meaningless point values?

Nadal is one of the best grass court players in the world you are just a hater who is either obsessed with bringing rain down on Nadal or taking some strange drug
Why not? Let's start basing seeding on career achievements. Federer to be seeded #1 at Wimbledon for as long as he plays
If you want to ignore the 6 months (injury) break that Nadal took, what stops you from ignoring a 1 year break or a even longer one? Where is the line drawn? Why not seed Sampras as #1 if he chooses to come back?

Nadal took a injury break and his rankings reflect it. Seeding is based on a non-subjective formula. No special treatment. Get over it and stop whining.

Pratik is correct here, but MTF is MTF. Whenever MTF doesn't like a rule, it needs to be changed, tennis or otherwise.

Sampras who won 14 slams lost a lot of times to players outside 100 on clay and some other matches on surfaces other than clay too when he was at his prime. Roger only winning 4 games in FO final 2008 against Rafa and losing to players like Seppi when he was at his peak, so what? Do these losses make them a joke, I don't think so.

Nadal is the Robin Hood of tennis. He has a positive h2h against the rest of top 10, so he is pitiless with the powerful and merciful with the bottom.

Sampras didn't run away in shame for 8 months though. That's the big difference. NAdal ran away after he got beaten by Soderling and Rosol. Roger have never lost in his prime before the SF, or after his prime for that matter. Also in the 2008 final he was still recovering from mono. It's not a coincidence he did way better in all their other RG meetings.

Correct. Kendrick, Youhzny, Soderling, Haase, Petzschner and Rosol can attest to that.

Default Re: Rafael Nadal getting seeded No. 5 at Wimbledon is a joke

There is something truly sickening with the claim that people can get rewarded with a #4 seeding after losing to world #100 and taking a 7 month absence.
If Nadal is the humble, hard-working, fairplay fighter that he claims to be, he should be happy with his #5 seeding. I don't think he would like the garbage that his immature supporters (one of which is the writer of the article) are spewing.

Default Re: Rafael Nadal getting seeded No. 5 at Wimbledon is a joke

Everything will be solved, if Rafa will play Ferrer in QF. It would be fair imo. Nadal got tough draw in Rome (it isn't his fault Djokovic lost to Berdych) and also in RG, although many people there were sure he will get easy funny draw.
It would be good for the competiton and also some sort of justice imo if Nadal will play Ferrer in QF. It's battle for 4th place between them, so they can solve it fairly on the court.
But everything written there are only our wishes, the draw will solve it
