How are Williams/Williams no.1 seeds?

I was just wondering as to how Williams/Williams are no.1 seeds? They are wildcards, but they are not even ranked as far as I know! I know for sure they are not no.1 in the world in doubles!! Well, I know they will win the AO, they are too good of a team. Good luck to them ll! Thanks!

I also think that at one event (I forget which one) WmsX2 were *not* seeded and went up against the No. ! seeds in the first round -- and beat them! I think they definitely needed to be seeded; I'm not so sure about #1 though. Maybe #4 would have been about right.

Couldn't Agree more there

Though Venus and Serena should be seeded, anyway

Venus and Serena beat Vivi and Paola pretty easily in the Wimbledon final last year. If they can beat the #1 team that easily I think its fair to seed them #1.

Players now have the option of using whichever of their rankings' is higher - singles or doubles. This was to give the top singles players an incentive to compete in the doubles events. IMO, Venus and Serena should be seeded number one for the doubles, no questions asked. They are clearly the best doubles team in the world despite not playing many doubles tournaments.
