Seeds failing big time at USO

In R3 we have only 5 matches where seeds will play against each other out of possible 16 matches
Is this the worst GS when it comes to that stat recently?

Re: Seeds failing big time at USO

Losing 16-32 seeds isn't hurting the Tour.
As long as the big seeds stay in the draw, it's all right.

I said SEEDS, not TOP SEEDS. I'm pretty sure that seeds beyond 14th seed are seeds as well
It's a topic about how much the difference between 20-30 seeds and the non-top 30 players is little, if there is any difference at all...

Wimbledon this year had only 3 all-seeded matches (out of 16) in R3, with 14 seeds out in the first two rounds.
USO 2009 had 4 such matches in R3, with half the seeds out in R1/R2 - the highest amount of any slam the past 5 years.
Wimbledon 2008 also had 4 matches with two seeds, with 15 seeds gone.

The usual number is 6 or 7 matches, so this tournament is on the low side (with the 17-32 seeds doing particularly bad), but not a record or something.

Re: Seeds failing big time at USO

Not having talented players like Niculescu, AMG and Lepchenko in the fourth round is truly a huge blow to the tour

Either way it's still a fail thread.....the very GS prior to this had few matchups

While a possibility that Govortsova, Puchkova and Espinosa will make it to R4 is just exuberant

Re: Seeds failing big time at USO

The 16-32 seeds are irrelevant anyway so losing them is hardly a major problem.
