How Are Doubles Teams Selected at Tournaments?

I'm not talking about the well-known doubles teams like Bryan/Bryan, but the odd combinations you sometimes see from traditionally singles players. How do they hook up with whomever they play with in any particular tournament? Is it just random availability, do they ask each other? How does it work?

They ask each other. No more difficult than that. If you have noone in particular you want to ask, you can often hang up a notice on a notice bord saying you are available to play and hope someone is interested (or use social media). The Olympics is the only tournament with limitations on who you can play with. Of course, you need enough ranking points among the two to enter.

Another question about that, how are teams that get directly to main draw and how they are seeded decided?
