why MELZER/RAONIC not seeded? according to the entry list they should be #1

as far as I know, the entry list is based on the combined BEST ranking of both players (which means their ranking between their singles and doubles ranking) but when we talk about the draw, the seeds are based only on the combined DOUBLES rankings of the players

I don't understand the actual tournament seeding. I looked at current ATP rankings for both singles and doubles and took best from each player and this is what I came up with. Am I wrong?

1. Melzer/Raonic 39
2. Klizan/Lipsky 55
3. Dimitrov/Nishikori 67

4. Same ranking of 77:
Butorac/Hanley
Baghdatis/Nieminen

afaik for the seeding itself you are only allowed to take DOUBLES rankings into account..

I'm sorry - I finally understood that from the earlier post right after I posted this. It can be so confusing, but thank you for helping me out. Don't play tennis but love to watch!

Re: Main Draw
 
Stepanek pulled out of singles. Will he pull out of doubles too?

Stepanek had an eye infection so he pulled out from singles match but in tomorrows OOP he is still scheduled to play against Harrison/Baker. Seems like hes going to play?

Any word on whether Stepanek will play dubs today?

looks like Stepanek and Rochus are out of doubles and JP Smith and John Peers are in. Come on Aussies! This is your house so beat those Americans! (even though I am an American - :)
