At least Wimbledon makes an effort to recognize that grass rankings are different from overall tour rankings. Much better than Roland Garros in that regard. I wouldn't have supported their old arbitrary system, but the current formula seems pretty good. As things stand right now, I think the seeding is fair.

Perhaps the sport needs a two year ranking system or a different method for protecting the ranking of injured players (I'm not necessarily in favor of either of those ideas), but that's not Wimbledon's responsibility.

Wimbledon seeding alterations are only based on latest grass courts performances.
Nadal is not superb if u look at 2012 and 2011, so there's really nothing to argue about.

Funny, Nadal's 5th seed is the lowest he's ever got. He was unseeded in AO 2005 and then 4th seed in RG the same year. Never been below 4th seen since then - until now.

I'm glad they didn't alter the seedings in a way to prevent this from happening.

But when you have a projected QF between the defending champion and 7 time champion against a 2 time champion and the winner of the last slam, compared to a projected QF between 2 guys who have never even made the semis here, you know something's wrong.
