    Should the serving monster Ivo Karlovic be seeded at Wimbledon, even though he is only ranked #78? If he isn't seeded and gets Federer or Nadal first round, it could be very interesting!

    Likewise, Max "The Beast" Mirnyl, at #58, is an accomplished grass court specialist - do you think he should be seeded as well?

    Unfortunately, King Carlos will take his spot.

    He lost in 1st in Wimby last year. Didn't play Queens nor Halle, but has a final in Queen's in 05.

    No, it's not enough for him to be seeded.

    Why the hell would he be seeded? He blows at Wimbledon. Hasn't gotten past the first round in years.

    If he gets Nadal in the 1st round then Ivo gets to 2nd round. That would be sweet!

    curious, are you pulling someone to knock off rafa so that fed doesn't have to play him?

    No because, I want him to lose as many ranking points as possible. I know Fed will win easily on grass is they play.

    They both should be. They are both great on grass.

    I wonder what the lowest ranked player to be seeded at Wimbledon was(prior to their new seeding system in 2001)
