    i remembered that wimbledon based their rankings off of previous grass court results. but after looking at his previous wimbledon results (2003 - 1st round, 2004 - n/a, 2005 - 2nd round, 2006 - final) i was confused why he was ranked above roddick (2001 - 3rd round, 2002 - 3rd round, 2003 - semi's, 2004 - final, 2005 - final, 2006 - 3rd round), who had a much better wimbledon record. anyone know the reasoning to this?

    and i don't know how they did during non-wimbledon events since i can't find any info on them. but i'm assuming roddick would have the better results on those, too.

    then again i could just be talking out of my ass. :)

    They take the results of the last 3 years I think and your current ATP ranking points to figure out seeding. Nadal is way ahead of Roddick in ranking points that no matter what Roddick has done in Wimbledon it isn't enough to move him ahead of Nadal.

    The actual seedings is based on several factors not just off previous grass court results. The actual ATP Rankings is taken into consideration.

    See here for a definiton for last year:
