Has there been a change in the way seeds play each other? Have I just not noticed? The way it used to be, in the semis, #1 plays #4, and #2 plays #3, assuming everyone makes it through. That way, the ideal would be for #1 & #2 in the finals. Yet in the finals of the Sony today, #2 seed Murray played #3 seed Ferrer? That wouldn't / shouldn't have happened, at least in the past. When, why, and how did they change seeding?
