I have never heard of that in my entire life/career as an umpire. Now it could be that some tournaments (like in this case where they put the players' names on the towels) put the higher ranked player's towels on the left seat of the umpire, but did the players know it? Who knows. But to say it's "Tradition", I think that's BS.
