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

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

Ppl complain about the randomness of the FO but USO always draws up some crazy semi finalist like wicky or kerber last year

Its the end of the year people are struggling physically. As above has said the big names are still in, which hasnt happened in previous years (see 2009, 2010), so lets celebrate that.

How so??? We have the top 7 seeds,9 of the top 10 and 13 of the top 14 seeds all
Still in through round 3.....when is the last the that has happened (or even been close )!

I said SEEDS, not TOP SEEDS. I'm pretty sure that seeds beyond 14th seed are seeds as well :shrug:
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.

most of the top seeds are still around though

of the top 16 only 3 have been eliminated

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

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

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

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