these are not the seedings... this is the last week ranking - top 25 spots... some things have changed in the meantime and besides, you're missing 26-32 seeds...

sometimes this week, don't really know... but you can just take a look at this week's rankings... the first 32 players will be seeded according to their ranking, provided none of the top 32 withdraws from the tournament....

Re: Australian Open 2012 Seeding

After the withdrawal of [10]Andrea Petković (GER) due to a stress fracture in her lower back, Serena Williams (USA) moved up to # 12, Shuai Peng (CHN) to # 16, Lucie Šafářová (CZE) to # 24 & Petra Cetkovská (CZE) to # 32 seed.

You will find the updated possible meet ups in R3 & R4 here.
