Talking Could MARTINA NAV. get a special seeding at WIMBY ?

Does anyone think it is possible that they could give her a #32 or so seeding just to make sure she does not run into a a venus or lindsay in the 1st rd ??
If i am thinking correctly..wimbledon can make ANY special seedings as they see fit..

No! SHe retired. And comes back, an takes a top 40's players seed. I say hell no, but she should get a WC if she wants one, bu tnot a seed. But they could give her one.

Don't believe the Hype..if martina asked and recieved a WC for the French she will get one for Wimby. Knowing the wimbledon seeding panels history i really would not be surprised if they gave her a seed..i dunno how i would feel about the seeding..i WOULD agree with the WC since this is her last year on tour. But if Amy Frazier is the #32 player in the world at that time amd Martina takes her seed i would be >>> ..just as i am sure another fan would be pissed if a seed was takin from one of there fave players ...

that's an interesting point. In theory, Wimby can seed whatever players it wishes. But in practice, i think they go by a grass courts results formula of matches played in the past two years. Martina N's grass record of the past two years is 1-1, on which basis she obviously wouldn't be seeded.

Then again..they could go with her LIFETIME record and in theory be seeded no 1 ..

No chance. Tracy Austin didn't get seeded when she made her comeback in the Mid 90s.

I'm all for the wild card. But if they seed a 47 year old woman, especially when they have exactly one match win to their name in the last ten years, it would look ridiculous..

Yeah, she would need to sleep with A LOT people to get the seeding - the only problem is no one wants to sleep with her.

Tracy Austin came back in the mid-1990's? Where was I? Must've been mourning Monica's absence still!

Did Sandrine actually retire? I thought she took a long maternity leave.

I think it's impossible, there are many girls out there who play better than her right now.
