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

is this done by hand or by computer?

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

It is done by a sinister group of individuals united in their one mission and commitment, to prevent the two Williams sisters from ending up on opposide sides of the draw, obviously.

It's just helpless to see such posts could go to 5 pages.
Anyway, to them, if the williamses are in the same half, the draw is rigged.
Well

Thanks for explaining it, I always wondered how they were decided.
