Can somebody more intelligent than myself calculate where about his seeding will be? I know Wimbledon calculate the ranking differently using the current rankings combined with last two years (R1, R4) so could he be outside the top 16?

Doubt it. The gap between him and Monfils (#16 in WRs) is over 1000 points meaning they would need to have over 1000 more grass points over the past two seasons to over take Rafa. This does not include the fact Nadal will play Queens (and Stuttgart I believe). He will likely be seeded in the 9-12 range depending on results over next few weeks.

No way. Only Dimitrov gets ahead of Rafa. The rest are too far behind and can overtake him only if they win Halle/Queen's ... which can not be done by 5 players at the same time :)

My guess: Rafa will likely be seeded in the 8-10 range. Expecting another tough draw.

I'd say it would be meaningful if he dropped out of the top 12. Players seeded 13-16 can meet the top 4 in the 4R.
Agreed. Lopez would need to go on a tear and win all the grass events he enters. And Tsonga would need to pick up some points.

As it stands, he'll draw a 5-8 opponent in 4R and 17-24 in the 3R.

I doubt it *really* matters though. Given that Nadal hasn't been able to get past the 4R since 2011, one might say it doesn't matter who he plays at that point, unless it's someone who really doesn't have a hope in hell (I don't know, like Monaco or something). He'll probably be in the top 8 by the end of the year judging from the race, but I quite like the novelty of seeing Nadal have a double-digit ranking -- it's something you don't see too often. Kind of like Federer entering the US Open in 2013 as #7.

I think there's a good chance of him ending #9. But Raonic needs to get healthy obviously.

He used to lose early at every post-Wimbledon event besides the USO. And with how declined he is (and considering how every top 150 player can push him off clay), I doubt he'll pick up that many points.

Tsonga needs to beat Wawrinka, Lopez got 250+ points to defend before Wimbledon...
Only chance is Simon turning into a grass specialist. :superlol: and Dimitrov relearning how to play aggressive tennis and winning a grass tournament plus going deep at another Also, Nadal needs to lose at the first round.

Piratically impossible.

Dimitrov will absolutely be seeded ahead of Nadal. He gets 1000 points added from last year.
