Although they did mix up the seedings at Wimbledon some to better reflect the skill on the grass courts, the top seeds weren't necessarily the best grass-court players. Krajicek was not in the top 4, for example.
Also because of the nature of grass courts (in those days) upsets were much more common than today.
(It also shows that good luck is a factor in winning a tennis tournament.)
