Are the groups divided like this:

1,3,5,7

and

2,4,6,8

because if so:

Jelena, Serena, Ana, and Venus are all going to be in the same group :eek:

is this how the YEC is drawn, or is it random?

Here's how they do it (from the WTA Rule book):

Singles
(a) Place seed 1 in Group A and seed 2 in Group B.
(b) To determine the placement of the remaining seeds,
draw in pairs as follows:
(i) Seeds 3 and 4 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A
and remaining seed in Group B).
(ii) Seeds 5 and 6 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A
and remaining seed in Group B).
(iii) Seeds 7 and 8 (place 1st drawn seed in Group A
and remaining seed in Group B).

And they do seedings by WTA Rankings NOT the WTA Race

Someone explained to me that the players are paired by their ranking. 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 and 7&8. One player from each pairing is drawn into group. So you could have 1, 3, 5 & 7 or 1, 4, 6 & 7 or 1, 3, 6 & 8 etc. It depends on the draw. I hope I made sense!

Yeah your right, and that's what I mentioned before.
