Big 4 in the first 4 seeds, cool.

Hopefully there will be a Big 4 semifinals, except Djokovic-Murray.

You do realise that this is based on grass results not just ranking, right? He made Wimby 3rd round in 2012 so that goes towards seeding too.
yes I do. I've never liked this seeding system. He doesn't deserve to be seeded so high given recent form.

Yeah, Flipkens only seeded 24th at the ladies. She made semi final Wimby last year and played final at the Dutch Open. But she's only seed according to current rank.
With the gents rule she would have been seeded 14-16 ish.

Djokovic has been crowned "the Caroline Wozniacki of ATP" by Wimbledon officially!
Slamless 1st seed!
Once again I am proven right!

It's weird to see Janowicz being bumping so high. Especially if his current ranking is result of his fluke Wimbledon's run.

You people realize there's absolutely no difference between being seeded 1st and 2nd?
yeah, but there is a big difference between being seeded 15th or 24th...

It makes perfect sense.
not at all. most players only play 2 or even 1 tournament on grass, so these seedings are really random

it wouldnt be fair that roland garros seeds were made only counting clay results. but even this would be better because there are way more tournaments being played on clay

Well, the points affects the total points, not the seedings themselves. Due to the players ranked between those having such close points that effects of Bonus Points are big, some players' seeding bumps are high. I actually think that it is unfair that those that could be seeded if those below the default seeded zone are not included because it won't reflect the real Grass rankings the system is supposed to bring.

Anyone criticising the current system should think back to the time before the current formula was applied. The Wimbledon seeding committee made up their own seeds, with no particular logic applied. It may not be perfect but at least it's fairer than it used to be.
