16 seeds in singles, 8 seeds in doubles and 4 seeds in mixed doubles.

In singles: according to the ranks of 23rd July.

In doubles: discretion of the ITF. Rankings shall be a primary, but not sole, basis for selections.

Yep, Venus/Serena were seeded 2 and Huber/Davenport were also seeded, while Stosur/Stubbs were unseeded in Beijing.

They are surely not going to put two American teams in the same half now are they?

I thought, they couldn't be in the same half anyway. IIRC a singles player cannot meet another player from their country until the semi finals. So surely in doubles with only two teams, they should be separate until the final?

Two entries from the same nation will be put into different halves regardless of their seedings/rankings.

When the draws will be available?
And on the basis of which ranking players will be seeding?
