Wimbledon seedings - Live discussion

Hola. Como estas?

So yeah, in anticipation of the seedings coming out tomorrow, I decided to make this thread. Feel free to talk about anything that has to do with the seedings or not, just to build up the hype for the whole thing. Have fun. BTW, anyone know at what time (local) the seedings will be known?

Nope, seedings. Hence the thread title.

Re: Wimbledon seedings - Live discussion

Considering grass court performance and rank, I would love to see...

#1 Venus Williams
#2 Serena Williams
#3 Maria Sharapova
#4 Ana Ivanovic
#5 Jelena Jankovic

#15 Amelie Mauresmo
#16 Lindsay Davenport

Even though I know it would never happen
:P

Re: Wimbledon seedings - Live discussion

A smart seeding would be

1. Maria*
2. Venus
3. Ana*
4. Serena

*I don't think maria will win and by no means do I think that Ana is the fourth link in the big four.

Lindsay will get a top 16 seeding for sure.

As big a Maria fan as I am, then why would a one-time champion from four years ago be above a 4-time and defending champion? Anyways, I guess we are all getting ahead of ourselves!!!

Got there before me.


Especially considering the shaky ground she is on as the world no.1. She's nowhere near the *Definitive* no.1 (i.e dominating the whole tour) so it's not 100% certain. Especially when it's maria with the great record this year, the big winning streak and the greatrecord at wimbledon overall.
