    Oh, and by the way, if there should be a tie (there's never been one for first place afaik) is the number of unseeded winners you have correct. Has the benefit of being easy to track. If two unseeded players meet, both will be considered unseeded. From the third round onwards, if two seeded players meet the lower ranked counts as unseeded.

    Ljubicic is rubbish, he may make the second round on the back of an easy draw but I think in my time of watching tennis there has never been such a poor player have so high expectations put on them after ridiculously over-achieving in a small period.
