The irony is that Wimbledon abhors instability. Protecting the best players with seeds wasn't good enough for Wimbledon. They came up with a formula that intends to guarantee the outcome they want. This is new territory for Wimbledon. The All England Club must be very bothered by all the chaos.

so, what's your solution? what would you change? go back to 16 seeds, let Rafa and others wear  pink/orange outfits, get rid of the current formula, ban Queen from the CC. Babs, I want to hear some solutions here, not problems  :ranting:.

Solution to what? From an All England Club point of view, this has been a spectacle, memorable for all the wrong reasons. Maybe it will end fittingly: someone slips in the first set of the final and is too injured to continue.

Wimbledon is bigger than tennis. They have their tradition and their attitude is 'hush, hush, everything is fine'  even if there is a legit problem.

Verdasco has failed. Hopefully Janowicz will not.

If 'Nando had a lobotomy @ age 20, he'd have 30 slams by now.
