Rodneck got the easy draw
Can you imagine how a player can reach the finals of a grand slam event and never have played a ranked player below 31?
His opponents were ranked 181,128,31,90,23,63. What an easy setup draw.
It is by belief we should start seeding the 128 players based on the current 52-week rankings. Might make the outcome of the grand slam event different, but we would see better quality tennis.
