It seems ridiculous that players are seeded based on their results accumulated over the year, and little consideration is taken in slams regarding results produced on that particular surface. For instance Henman was seeded no 4 in Rome, when he is clearly not the fourth best clay courter in the world. Furthmore Gaudio will be seeded like 5 or 6 come wimbledon, yet he has never advanced past the second round!!. Should players be seeded according to previous grand slam performance, and current results to date on that particular surface??
