    Thought this was an interesting article.

    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
