Bizarre. Since when does Wimbledon honor the rankings?

Ferrer will be out by the third round.

Yeah do they always go by rankings only for Women? No special seeding? What's up with that?

So what are your picks, pawan? still going with the old man? I mean why else would you open this thread?  :)~

Opened the thread so we can start talking about Wimbledon, you know the next big Grand Slam that EVERYONE wants to (or should be) talking about  :innocent:
As for my picks.. hmm, logically thinking in my head Nadal/Novak are equal top favourites, followed at a good distance by Federer/Murray also as equal second favourites. The outcomes will depend on the draw and who each one of those four will have to play in the semis and finals.

As for my preference, I have nothing against Roger winning it :) But aside from him I'd like to see Tsonga pick up the title. And hopefully good runs by Berdych, Gasquet, and hopefully one of Raonic, Dimitrov, and Gulbis makes a good run although doesn't look like it's going to happen based on last two weeks.

I think they can still change women's seedings, they just don't have a formula. The formula was made to have an objective, not subjective, way to change the seedings to reflect more the true pecking order on grass.

So why not be objective with the women as well? What's that based on, arbitrary opinion of the draw makers?

Potential quarter-final match-ups: Djokovic vs. Berdych, Ferrer vs. Del Potro, Nadal vs. Federer and Tsonga vs. Murray

Great chance for Ferrer to make the semis. :))

Oh wow. It will be almost impossible for Nadal/Federer to win Wimbledon this year.

QF: Nadal v Federer
SF: Nadal/Federer v Murray/Tsonga
F  : Nadal/Federer/Murray/Tsonga v Djokovic/Ferrer/...

That is tough shizzle.
