    when the seeds for the tournament are determined - which rankings are taken into an account? The previous Monday? Monday two weeks ago? It depends? For example, for upcoming Miami tournament, the seeds were determined based on rankings from what exact date?

    From the rankings of the Monday of the week before the tournament starts.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    The seeds are determined from the rankings in effect the moment the draw is made. That applies to qualifying draws as well. People get confused because the entry lists are based on the rankings as of the entry deadline, 42 days before the tournament begins.
