Mary Jo Agrees, Venus should be seeded no. 1

I know that there are already been a thread addressing this, but Mary Joe Fernandez (Wimbledon Commentator) also stated that Venus should be seeded no. 1 and Serena no. 2. It really is a shame that a player who has not made it to the second week at Wimbledon is seeded no. 1.

She should shut up.What's the point of saying things like this, especially now that the event began ?

Why? Mary Carillo asked her if she liked the seedings and she stated her honest opinion.

Re: Mary Jo Agrees, Venus should be seeded no. 1

if you argue she can win despite the seeding then shut up about what she is seeded

They should focus on the matches.Seeding has been done, matches started, no need to fuel a sterile controversy except if they have nothing interesting to say about the actual matches

Re: Mary Jo Agrees, Venus should be seeded no. 1

It would have been even more of a shame if the best player in the world was not the no.1 seed, so Wimbledon got that one right. They can't just do the seedings on Wimbledon results alone.

Venus is still at her best seeding for many years so people should just be happy with that and move on.

One could have said the same about those complaining about unequal prize money.

If they keep up their criticism, eventually Wimbledon may act differently.
