View Full Version : Why is Schuettler seeded and Tanasugarn not?

I can't get it. Schuettler did well last year, but since then has not capitalised on his SF finish. He is a mere #30 in the ranks, but seeded at #18. Tanasugarn instead has been playing consistent tennis on grass for more than a decade and yet hasn't been seeded and rewarded for it. She is not top32 right now, but they should have seeded her anyways. Wimbledon organizers really confuse me at times. :rolleyes:

what's not to get, they are sexist assholes... Men are seeded by a formula and women are seeded by if they want to fuck them or make extra money off of them. :shrug: :rolleyes:

The ATP followed the rules, and seeded all Top 32 players. Schuettler is ranked #30.

Or, he's seeded in the Top 32 because he's ranked in the Top 32. ;)

MashaS got in as she's GS winner on grass, even Tammy do well on grass she has not won Wimbledon. There may be more we would like to see get a Seeding, but they can't all get IN.

Unlike Masha, i think if Tammy would've gotten a lower seed very few people would have complained :lol::p

No shit. That wasn't the question.

Schuettler is seeded because he should be seeded, according to the rankings. End.

Yeah I should have mentioned that in my original post, sorry. That's what I don't get. Schuettler is rewarded with a high seeding despite of his bad season while Tammy, who has been a known force on grass and espacially at Wimbledon, is being ignored.

A known force on grass? She's had one GS QF at Wimbledon, and won one MM event twice. I wouldn't describe her as a force on grass. Competitive yes, but not a force. Venus is a force. Besides, Schuttler is a former GS finalist and had a semi-final last year at Wimbledon and Schuttler is actually in the Top 32 and Tammy is not.

But he's only top 32 because of his fluke-SF last year ;)


But I think they only change the seeding of players who are seeded anyway... at least in the men's draw, not shure about the women's.

I just found this seeding system ridiculous. Once you adjust a player's seeding [turning unseeded to seeded, moving up the seeding], then 309070957023 questions follow.

just seeded according to their rank. please.

If there is someone whose capability on grass-court is distorted most from ranking, it would be Tammy. No offenses to Maria, she is much more a contender for a Wimbledon title. But we never raise a player in seeding just because of a break of injury. If Maria play all year, she will be seeded automatically.
Didn't the Wimbledon organizer say when they first adopted this policy that they would not like to follow ranking because there are very few grass tournaments during a season, and they wanted to kind of neutralize that effect?

Second that. Do not create a special rule if it will not be applied to all players straight and fair.

Brits :rolleyes:

but Sharapova shouldn't be seeded ... juggle names who are in top32 but do not bring in names outside regardless to the prominent name!

Don't think Tanasugarn earned seeding - apart from doing well on grass she hasn't done much elsewhere; why should more consistant player suffer :shrug:
