V.Zvonareva [RUS] (33)

Is she the thirty-third seed, or what? Not that I care, but the very idea of a thirty-third seed is weird to me. Does anybody understand anything of this?

one of the first 32 seeds withdrew after the draw was made, so, Vera was sended to that position as a 33th seed, and her position in the draw was replaced by a LL

What interested me was the phenomenon and how it came about, not Vera Zvonareva's case on its own merit. The phenomenon is as applicable to men's tennis as it is to women's, so keep your smart-ass remarks to yourself.
