May be their post Hollywood patch-up is not all that good. If so, it will surely affect the performance of Novak in the upcoming NA Masters tourneys.

Too much propaganda by both Dodgy

Is Djokovic going to receive any seeding protection with the wildcard? How will it work?

A last minute WC doesn't take away from a player's ranking! If Nole showed up the day of the "draw pull," the previous top seed would just drop down to 2! I wrote a big thing on "Protected Rankings" and how I think it's being taken to extremes! Seles deserved it due to stabbing, but Haas or other oft injured player shouldn't get free entry just because rehabbing another surgical procedure done on them! No No Rolleyes Cry

Totally disagree on Haas not being justified in receiving WCs. He's had 9 surgeries now and was in decent form before his last surgery and is a much more exciting player to watch than the donkey they'd choose if it wasn't an ex number 2 like him. All court veteran crowd puller or some random unknown donkey, it's a tough choice for the organizers alright!

Seeding protection does not exist, only "ranking protection".
Djokovic does not need a protected ranking, as he is ranked 2 in the world.

Wildcards respect the seedings. You can receive an wildcard and still be the #1 seed. So there is no need, in this case, for a "seeding protection".

Ranking protection guarantees that a player makes the ranking cutoff for the tournament, but the seedings are decided by current ranking (apart from Wimbledon, etc), given that there is no "seeding protection".
