Seems like every other tournament draw I look at that has more than 4 seeded players, sees at least half of them failing to reach the third round/Quarters (typically a draw of 32), and the remaining seeds failing to reach the Semis.
Seeding in the Open level draws seem to be much more telling..
I know. A number doesn't designate whether they are good or not- I got the message.
I like to play Open level draws because it makes it more surprising and more of a challenge.
