I think they will, but she will still be outside the top 16. Lindsay hasen't played the tournament in the last 2 years so she has won no grasscourt points at all. They cannot really bump her up more than a few places.

She deserves a seed, probably top 30

Lindsay is at least a top 16 seed at Wimbledon if not a bit higher. They should bump up her seeding. If they don't it the luck of draw and Lindsay luck with her oz open draw wasn't that good.

Id hope so since shes in the top 30....lol she should be top 24 regardless (I know shes on the bubble) but they might bump her up to 16... otherwise no...its tough cause she hasnt played in the last 2 years... but her record at Wimbledon is when you look at who shes lost to, the only person with a better tourny is Venus at the US Open.... And the way shes played this year.... The fact that she just about humiliated the new Number 1 player this year I'd say its in the best interest of Lindsay and anyone ranked in the top 8 for her to be bumped up to the top 16...

Serena Williams

She will not get a seeding bump up. Plain and simple.

Re: Will Lindsay get a seeding bump-up at Wimbledon?

I don't if she's gonna get it, but for sure she should be place inside the top 16 IMO. As a former champion and RUp she deserves it.

Re: Will Lindsay get a seeding bump-up at Wimbledon?

she will be a top 24 seed so she avoids top 8 in the 3rd round

so no need for a seed bump

Re: Will Lindsay get a seeding bump-up at Wimbledon?

well she 's good in spots 17-24 IMO , no need to draw Venus in round 3 4 losses against her are already way too much ...

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbińe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Re: Will Lindsay get a seeding bump-up at Wimbledon?

Yes. She's currently at No. 26, and the seeding committee will move her up to No. 24 or so.

Re: Will Lindsay get a seeding bump-up at Wimbledon?

Mauresmo won Wimbledon two years ago and reached the final of Eastbourne last year, so she will end up in the Top 16 probably.

About Lindsay, I think the Top 8 is more concerned in facing her in the 3rd round than the opposite!

Re: Will Lindsay get a seeding bump-up at Wimbledon?

I say no, Lindsay hasn't played in 2 years and is too sporadic these days. I think she's a great grass court player but there is no legit basis for moving her up.
