Such big names among the next seeded players:
#33 Muguruza
#34 Wozniacki
#35 Hsieh
#36 Putintseva
#37 Görges

There should be 64 seeds at Grand Slams !!!
Would make the draw a lot fairer.

I already see a R1 Serena/Kvitova/Karo Pliskova vs Mug/Wozniacki/Görges :rolleyes:
And then of course WC Han/ WC Parmentier/Aussie WC vs Aussie WC/Q/LL ...

That's part of the fun. Why not just scrap quals as well, as it's not fair if someone ranked 250 qualifies, but someone 88 at the time doesn't. May as well just have top 128 qualifiyng, 1 vs 128, 2 vs 127 etc.

For me the whole 'dangerous floater' is the best bit about it, and the first round would be boring if the top 64 were protected. I'm not in favour of 16 (I think 32 is fine), but there'll be more chance going back to 16 seeds than extending it to 64.

It was a reveal last year and they did the men first.
To be honest, even if was actually did it live, then it would basically be a reveal to me anyway due to the time difference, but I always prefer the old fashioned names coming out way.

Where Sharapova lands, we all want to know. Hope for no Osaka, Suarez Navarro or Serena...for at least three rounds.

Agree.

One more Maria Sharapova vs Caroline Wozniacki duel would be awesome too! ♥
Or R1 Maria vs walking bye Sloane! hahaha

I really want to know who gets Sloane, Woz and Maria.
And obviously the dangerous unseeded Mug, Görges and Gauff.

You just know Gauff will play either Osaka, Sharapova, Venus or Serena in the first or second round.
I feel like they are cooking up something. They always do one or two where you know it was not random (i.e. US Open 2019 Serena vs Maria, Sharapova vs Halep 2017). Watch it be Sharapova vs Guaff.
