there's been a lot of discussion over nadal's "surprise" number 2 seeding at wimbledon. personally, i think it was a tough decision but ultimately the right one because nadal is clearly far above the no.3 player in terms of overall results.

anyway, i just wanted to know if anyone out there still remebers where juan carlos ferrero and gustavo kuerten were seeded the years they won the french open? i remeber ferrero made the 4th round or the quarters in '03 and was ranked 2 or 3 at that time. just don't remember where he was seeded. i also know guga didn't make it to the 2nd week of wimbledon the years he won FO. but he was ranked number 1 at the end of 2000 and defended the FO in '01, so surely he must have been ranked in the top 3 at that point in time. was he significantly bumped down in the seedings?
