Wimbledon Seeds

Hello everyone,,

Was looking for a Wimbledon tournament thread, but couldn't see it ( maybe too minor an event  smile  ).


Anyway, I'll just post as re the seeds as a stand alone thread..


Seeds announced as :learners test nsw



1 Rafael Nadal (ESP)

2 Roger Federer (SUI)

3 Andy Murray (GBR)

4 Novak Djokovic (SRB)

5 Juan Martin del Potro (ARG)

6 Andy Roddick (USA)

7 Fernando Verdasco (ESP)

8 Gilles Simon (FRA)

9 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA)

10 Fernando Gonzalez (CHI)

11 Marin Cilic (CRO)

12 Nikolay Davydenko (RUS)

13 Robin Soderling (SWE)

14 Gael Monfils (FRA)

15 Marat Safin (RUS)

16 Tommy Robredo (ESP)

17 David Ferrer (ESP)

18 James Blake (USA)

19 Rainer Schuettler (GER)

20 Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI)

21 Tomas Berdych (CZE)

22 Feliciano Lopez (ESP)

23 Ivo Karlovic (CRO)

24 Radek Stepanek (CZE)

25 Dmitry Tursunov (RUS)

26 Jurgen Melzer (AUT)

27 Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER)

28 Mardy Fish (USA)

29 Igor Andreev (RUS)

30 Viktor Troicki (SRB)

31 Victor Hanescu (ROU)

32 Albert Montanes (ESP)


As I presume everyone assumed, Andy is seeded 3.  3/4 makes no real difference. 


If Rafa comes out fit, all guns blazing, although I would still make Roger clear favourite, I kind of think I wouldn't mind Andy being in Roger's half and have him as a potential semi final rather than final opponent.  However much much to happen before we reach that stage.  


Only alteration from rankings in the top 10 that the Wimbledon "grass formula"  has produced is Simon and Verdasco swapping. Big moves up for last year's two losing semi finalists, Safin and Shuettler.


The seedings have to be based on the top 32 ranked players participating, which means Tommy Haas currently misses out by one place. He is not a first round player you want, especially given he's shown on form with his Haale success.  So think a few folk would be happy to see a seed withdraw ( Fed ideally biggrin )  and Haas move into a seeded position.

C'mon Bob, it's 2009.

Anyway, I'm going to make some bold predictions. Rafa I am afraid is going to withdraw after the draw is made which will be good for Andy because I reckon he is going to be drawn in Rafa's half so end up with say a SF against Andy Roddick. And that would clearly be a cakewalk.

At least that will indeed let Tommy Haas into the seeds and I can see him having a very good tournament.

My worry here would be one of the unseeded guys like Ferrero, the grass is playing like a hardcourt. Hope andy could deal with him if they meet, last 8 perhaps
