Has Roger done enough in the clay court tournaments to be seeded as No 2 above Rafa?

If I'm correct Roger will be the second seed if he reach the finals of Halle?

Calculation -

Roger = 6670 (currently) - 550 (points from Halle and Stuttgart) + 910 (100% from 2018 Grass) + 1500 (75% of best grass tournament in 2017) = 8530

Rafa = 7945 (currently) - 0 (points from Wimbledon prep) + 720 (100% from 2018 Grass) + 135 (75% of best grass tournament in 2017) = 8800

So the difference is only 230 points. So if Roger reaches final at Halle he would be seeded 2nd for Wimbledon according to my calculation.

Am I correct?

Yeah. I remember when Nadal proposed a two-year ranking system, he was so mocked by Fedfans. While for years Wimbledon effectively uses a two-year ranking system and nobody says a thing.
Not really the same situation though. For grass there's like 15 usuable matches in a players resume a year, tops. For the tour it's far more than double that. There's more reasons to be named probably.

Think that Simon guarantees himself a seed at Wimbledon with his win today.

Presumably del Potro is out - is anyone else in the Top 33 not playing? The only ones in the Top 33 playing this week are Djokovic, Nadal, Thiem, Isner and Lajovic (who is #33 in the live rankings and poised to take the spot delPo vacates). The first three of those are presumably all good for Wimbledon, but Isner had surgery after Miami and hasn't played since - anyone know his status? And what of Lajovic.

Next up in the live rankings are Struff and Garin. But Herbert would get seeded if he beats Federer tomorrow.

It was done because grass season isnt long enough. A 2 year system was clearly just for nadal as he could just play clay and keep his ranking. Also, this is just for seedings, it doesnt affect any ranking. Slams can do whatever they want when it comes to seedings. They can seed anyone they want.

So they do it to favor grass specialists.

Nadal didn't ask for 2-year clay points and 1-year other points, did he?

Unlike Wimbledon, clearly favoring grass specialists like Federer. Sure, they can do whatever they want. Don't ever move Roger out of CC, ever, again!

For Rafa to be the #3 seed is better IMO, will take the pressure off, he can swing freely.

Hoping for Novak-Nadal SF, I have a weird feeling Djokovic will lose before QF, Querrey style.

I bet you are an awesome tennis player who has beaten..... ( ) in your life time. He he
This is your first post on the forum? Oh dear.

I mean what's even the point of a tennis forum if we aren't allowed to talk about tennis players? Your "argument" is utterly pointless.
