Re: Randomized Seeding in Tennis
Randomisation is definitely better. Otherwise you may have players altering their results to achieve their preferred draws for Grand Slams. For example, Federer not wanting to become number one (at present), so he can avoid Rafa until the final.
The first time (out of two total) I bet on a sports result was Nadal versus Soderling French Open 2009 (Nadal -x.5 games).
