She had even done poorly at the previous years RG and doesnt even have a good RG record, it was a respect for her overall stature in the game I guess.

Nadal as the all time greatest RG Champion would not be seeded below David Ferrer. He would be at minimum seeded #4. I would not even be surprised in the least if they seed him #3 over Murray given Murray's modest past record at RG, if Murray is still only ranked #3 by then.
I wouldn't be too sure. How often do the seedings differ from the rankings nowadays?
