I was just looking at the entry list for the Italian Open -and the ranking is as of 4/3/06. Why don't they use more current ranking (like even the week or 2 weeks before), when they issue the seeds for the draw?

Anyone know?

Tks ;)

Because they wanna know earlier who will be play, to prepare and advertise tournament. They made cut off six weeks before tournament,.
Week before when they doing Maid Draw use current rankings (or ranking from last week). That Entry List is usually updated once a week (or more if someone withdraw).

Thanks for the clarity! Really hoping Martina can be seeded for the Italian Open!
