    Did I miss something? How did Del Potro get to be #5 for the Montreal tournament? Is it because he committed before Roddick? I'm confused.

    the tournament officials decide the seeds , dont think they are required to follow the exact rankings if they dont want to

    Chill - it's just the player list on the webisite. The draw will be done on the basis of last Monday's rankings.

    The tourney field is based on the rankings from July 5. But the seeds and the draw is made based on the current rankings. Roddick will be the 5 seed, but really it doesnt mean much

    Correct. 5-8 are drawn at random. 5 has no inherent advantage over 6,7, or 8.

  13. Correct, big tournaments like this usually "cut" the field based on that ranking 1 month in advance
