Should start some flaming.

As an aside... as normal seeding and bracketing works... why did nadal play Joker in the semis? don't the 1 and 4, 2 and 3 meet in semi's?

edit... stupid question... forgot murray is now the #3...

the title of fittest tennis player alone should go to the one who doesn't complain of fatigue and injury every tournament.

I'm sure Nadal_Freak and Veroniquem (amongs many others) disagree with the article.

Yeah it should go the guy who doesn't complain of fatigue because he wins a tournament only after 8 months

The difference is *******s don't claim that Fed is the fittest guy on tour, yet use fatigue and exhaustion as an excuse for him losing.

Murray was seeded #4 because the seeding took place before the rankings updated.

Regardless seeding doesn't work like that in the draws:

You have:

1 & 2 on either side
3 & 4 drawn randomly into one half or the other, can get either #1 or #2
5-8 randomly drawn for each quarter

etc

==

also that list is strange and definitely not a real representation on fitness, Bolt is fit but I very much doubt he's the fifth fittest man in the world, and you have Richard Branson at number 10 haha xD
