I guess we'd have to go back on the draws and see if such pairings did in fact occur.
Yea just looking at the Us Open draw 7th seed Stosur had 31 seed Lepchenko drawn for her 3 rd round and 6 seed Kerber had the 29th seed.
I think other sports do it because they usually only have a draw in a special tournament or playoffs to end the season. Tennis has draws in every event so their difference keeps the same match ups frombhappening every single tournament.
Example. Most Sports the 4th seed always plays the 1 seed and the 2nd always plays the 3rd
But great wishful thinking tho. When tho I like Venus' chances vs Azarenka and Sharapova more than Na or Kerber even tho after Cincinnati and the Us Open I know Venus can beat both of those players
