I noticed that Hewitt and Safin, seeded 2 and 3 respectively, are squaring off in their Semifinal showdown and it struck me as odd. I have always understood seeding placements to be as: 1 8 4 5 3 6 2 7 In this manner; you ensure a 1 and 2 Seeded Player(s) in the finals (If seeds advance) - The placement of the seeds at this tourney are/is (where we still can get a 1,2 Final) 1 6 4 8 5 3 7 2 Obviously, not from Day 1, Round 1 as the seeds are playing a bunch of scrubbies; it is not until the Finals Round where we see the results of the seeds. But from the start of the Finals, we get an unbalanced Seeding arrangement. If Blake, The Number 1 Seed had advanced, he would have been playing the Number 6 Seed at the start of the Finals Round. This does not appear to be the correct way ? Should he not be facing the Number 8 Seed going into this Round ? Shouldn't, as is the best case scenario, Blake be facing Hewitt in the Finals ? But even better, should not Hewitt be playing the 4th or 5th Seed in the Semi's and NOT the 3rd Seeded Safin ? (My head hurts now) Am I missing something ?
