Love -- Seedings for Wimbledon were announced Wednesday. In a stunner, Novak Djokovic was slotted at No. 29 by the committee and Steffi Graf was a surprising No. 10 seed on the women's side. Oh, never mind: They didn't deviate from the rankings at all. Sorry, Venus Williams, Kim Clijsters and the two women who have to play Venus Williams and Kim Clijsters in the first round. Boo!

15 -- No Wimbledon wild card for Brian Baker? No problem. The American will continue his amazing comeback at the All England Club next week after qualifying on Wednesday with a 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Maxime Teixeira. It will be his first appearance in the grass-court major. In other qualifying news, Jesse Levine saved us all from reading Wayne Odesnik stories next week by winning their match and advancing to the main draw. Hooray!

30 -- The New York Times Magazine asks, "Can Ivan Lendl Lead Andy Murray to Tennis Greatness?" Maybe!

40 -- Leander Paes has threatened to withdraw from India's Olympic team if Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna get their way and are paired together for the upcoming Summer Games. Drama!
