Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

Should be interesting. What do you think?

If she has a couple of solid weeks leading into the tournament. I think they will.

Re: Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

no not unless shes ranked in the top 32 dircet entries, that wont happen unless she wins the french open at this stage lol.

basicaly wimbledon can only alter the order of seeded players, not who gets seeded i.e the top 32 players baring withdrawals.

Re: Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

Re: Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

No need to do that, she was out for a long time so she isn't seeded, I'm perfectly fine with that anyway, it's the way it should be.

Re: Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

I don't think so, it would be unfair to other players if they seed her.

not really

she will be severely lacking match practice...

the top players should dispose of her relatively easily, even more so than perhaps a solid 40-70 ranked player

Re: Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

No, they fix seeds based off of your past 2 or 3 year results there and Maria's are SF-R4-R2. It would be smart to put her in the top 32, but probably not.

Re: Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

I don't think they will, it will be interesting to see what her draw is like though.

Imagine Venus vs Maria in the 1st round

Re: Will they seed Sharapova at Wimbledon?

There is no special formula on women' side and Venus was the only seeded player to get a bump in the last years. But, again, Venus was seeded before being bumped, Sharapova won't make it to the top-32 unless she wins RG like sammy01 has said.

because it's not because they've never done it that they won't do it this year... It's Wimbledon, anything's possible

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
