The Website is wrong.

This is Tennis Australia remeber, the player list still sin't updated rom last year.

Main draw will be out Friday 10th.

Doubles will not be out on the 8th as the site says, it'll probably be done next Monday

Hey I know this is a US open issue, but wasn't there a scandal or something relating to the rigging of a draw years ago? I think I saw that on here but perhaps I'm mistaken. If there was such a scandal, can someone enlighten me please? Thanks :)

The only thing I can think of was Damir Dokic complaining that they DIDN'T rig the draw so that Jelena wouldn't have to play Lindsay in the first round. Could that be what you're thinking of? It's actually quite funny in hindsight.

In 1996, the USTA gave special seedings in the men's draw to favour top Americans. They pushed Yevgeny Kafelnikov from his deserved #4 seeding to #7 and he withdrew as a result.

wow, seriously? whoever thought that was a good idea?
I was doing some serious exams in late 1996 and must have missed the controversy.
