The way the draws are done - for the "is it random" people
It's own thread because it seems many here could stand to know this stuff.
i. For All Main Draws
(a) Place Seed 1 on line 1 and Seed 2 on line 32 (32 draw), 64 (64 draw) or line 128 (128 draw).
(b) To determine the placement of the remaining seeds, draw in pairs of two (Seeds 3 and 4), groups of four (Seeds 5-8, 9-12, 13-16) or groups of eight (Seeds 17-24 and 25-
32) from top to bottom and place seeds, in the order drawn, on the lines indicated in the WTA draw table.
Once the seeds are in place, the other players are drawn at random and placed on the empty lines starting at the top of the page and going down the draw until it is filled
