Womens 1972 Draw.

The PDF-draw from the WTA is as big as 128 with byes for seeds in "1st" and "2nd" round. It surely be a maindraw of 32 and 2 rounds of qualifying.

But not the normal qualifying we are used to. It appears it is a special set of preliminary rounds to make of the main draw of 32. My confusion is that here at tennis forums we really don't have it listed correctly. It should be a main draw of 32 as the official French Open tells us.
