What should Venus' seed for Wimbledon be?

As you know, Wimbledon uses a players previous results to help seed them, so what do you think Venus should be seeded?

I think she definitely should be top 4 easily!

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

1 - Maria
2 - Venus
3 - Serena
4 - Ana

Re: What should Venus' seed for Wimbledon be?

Since Wimbledon changes the seedings:

-Venus should be #4.
-Either Kuznetsova or Jankovic should be bumped down to #5.
-Sharapova is a former champ with 2 semi appearances, and Ivanovic did reach the semis last year, so they are top 4 as well.
-Serena hasn't been past the quarters since 2004, so no need to change her seeding. I expect her to reach semis at least this year though.
-Bartoli might be #8 if she plays, since she did so well last year. Either Dementieva or Chakvetadze should be #9.

Re: What should Venus' seed for Wimbledon be?

If I remember correctly, it is ranking points + 100% last year result + 50% 2 years ago result + 25% 3 years ago result

So she should have just less than 1500 points added, so probably #4 seed?

I agree with this in theory, but they can't give Serena a top 4 seeding because since 2004 her results haven't backed it up. She probably would have beaten Henin last year if not for the thumb injury which prevented her from hitting good 2 handed backhands, but still, Serena will stay in the #5-#8 seeds. She'll get past the quarters this year though.

This is for ATP, I believe. There is no any special formula for women if I'm not mistaken.

Re: What should Venus' seed for Wimbledon be?

I think that she should be in the top 4. Now whether or not they do it remains to be seen. But if there are really seating her based on her accomplishments on that surface she should be #1.

It would be great if she is seeded Top-4 , however it would not be that great anymore if she is going to play Serena in QF then

They usually don't for the women, but they did bump up Venus' seeding a little bit last year. For some reason, Wimbledon mostly seems to care about only the men's game.

sasha&tennis, I agree, but they would never take away the #1's seeding. At least in this case, the current #1 can play on grass.

i'm pretty sure they used that same formula for Venus last year. But Venus was the only one they used it for.
