Intesesting observations, if the draw does not matter, maybe the event should just seed by ranking. Then this point is mute.
Agassi use to get the easy draws, played the same guy at the U.S. Open 3 years in a row, delgato. I think it only fair to all players, your 52 week ranking is where you should be seeded.
What a joke Seeding Venus number 3 and the heavy one number 1. Jen and lindsay were ranked higher.
Why let some tournament official decide!
