Do you think they just might give her the #32 seed?
I mean, why not? Martina could very well hold that seeding, and maybe give some Top 20 players all they can handle on grass

I mean she doesnt have a ranking, but shes the GOAT and has won 9 Wimbledon titles for lordes sake. Shes a huge draw to the crowd, and I dont think many people would be happy to meet her in the 1st round.

I mean Wimbledon has been this lenient before, right?

The rules for seedings that they announced with other grandslams is that the top 32 ranked players that enter the draw will be seeded, however each grandslam can seed those 32 players however they like!! So no Martina could not be given any seed!!

At Wimbledon, I think the rule is not that the 32 seeds can be seeded anyway Wimbledon wants, they can only move people in their own bracket, so 1-4 can be in any order, then 5-8, etc.

They only do it for exceptionally talented people anyway ;)

I don't think Martina would play Wimbledon. If anything she would play Roland Garros, because clay is a much better surface for her. Her record at Wimbledon isn't that great--despite winning in 97

is she?

go martina!

wouldnt it be funny if she won one of those? if she continues to improve, i dont see why not

shes really hungry for that record, if W/S arent playing i'd call her and Kuznetsova the favorites at Wimby for doubles
