Chauvinism about Wimbledon seeding is disgusting
- Champion Roger Federer will be number one seed for next week's Wimbledon championships despite being overtaken in the world rankings by Rafael Nadal. Fair I guess
- Andy Roddick, three times runner-up to Federer, including last year, is seeded fifth in the men's draw, against his world ranking of seven. A little bit far-fetched, this guy has never won Wimbledon
- Lleyton Hewitt, the 2002 champion is seeded 11 places higher than his 26 ATP ranking. That takes the cake.
In that case Sharapova should be seeded higher, Safina and especially Henin (twice a finalist) should be among the the top 16 seeds. Just imagine if Venus was 3 in the WTA rankings, behind Jankovic and Caro. I'm sure she wouldn't have been bumped. Disgusting.
