Can anyone explain how Venus Williams' elevated seeding doesn't contravene the WTA Official Rule IV.C.7.a.iii which states:

"Seeding will be based on the WTA Rankings the week prior to the Monday start of the Tournament in question, with the exception of Tournaments which start on a Wednesday or later in the week, in which case, the current week’s Ranking shall be used." ?

Probably because this is an ITF tournament? I'm not sure though.
