Re: 2014 Projected Wimbledon Seedings

I think Mahut will be seeded as well, he won two ATP 250 titles on grass last year, so he is adding at least 500 points from the formula. Also - it will be better if you remove Del Potro since he is not playing, because every player behind him moves one place ahead.

only the top 32 ranked players will be seeded, Mahut will only be seeded if he is able to get into the top 32 ranked players or Wimbledon decides to give him a seeding exemption. No formal announcement of del Potro's withdrawal, even though it is a given, it needs to be official.

I hope for a great draw for Gulbis, now he has an excellent chance for that.

Re: 2014 Projected Wimbledon Seedings

Can players earn higher seeding if they perform well at grass events this year? I.e if Janowicz won Halle would his ranking be bumped even higher?

Yeah the 100% points is from the Monday before Wimbledon 2013-2014 so Jerzy would add 250 points if he won Halle.

Re: 2014 Projected Wimbledon Seedings

I think Wawrinka should be seeded lower than that....probably around where Fognini is...

Really? If it is, it kind of beats the purpose of adjusted seedings as they are just scrambling the already seeded players (Grass mugs or not) than saying who are the "real seeded" players of Grass. I hope Mahut is seeded if he reaches the seeding ranking after adjustments, because winning 2 Grass titles last year shows that he is very dangerous on Grass.

Yes, it changed around 10 years ago, because many clay courters were getting bumped out of the seeding places, so they decided to boycott the event. Wimbledon changed it to only shifting those who are to be seeded if they didn't use the formula.

Yes, look at the Max Points, that is their point if they won either Halle or Queens.

Shouldn't Nadal be behind Darcis?

It's been that way since they started using this formula years ago. Mahut may have done well on grass but he needs to get into the top 32 to take advantage of it in terms of seeding. It's not a bad thing to have some dangerous floaters in the draw who can make the first two rounds interesting.
