Again, how do these people draw the unseeded players? Is a computer doing it? How are the names appearing so quickly on this screen? Every time there's the Wawrinka - Kyrgios or whatever in the 1st round which is obviously rigged as they do the draw as they like for marketing purposes.

Why don't they spend 10 extra minutes, take a large bowl, shuffle and pick out numbers. Why nobody cares it's suspicious?

So are you saying that because there's one interesting matchup in round 1 then it's rigged?

del Potro/Nishikori 2nd round....brutal. If Chung was in better shape, the match with Djoko would be a great first rd matchup. Nadal with an easy quarter...Kyrgios will pull out. Relatively balanced draw all things considered....going with either Zverev or Djoko to win.

It's hilarious how Djokovic keep getting these cupcake draws as non a Top 8 seed..

He's gonna walk his half and beat up on who will come out from the more loaded top half.

No it's far than one, you got Nishikori's strange draws again every time, 2R vs DelPo. But that doesn't matter that much as it's subjective opinion. The real question is, why is it automatic and not manual? Why nobody cares it's suspiciously fake? It would take them less than 10 minutes to do it properly, in a fair manner.

This is a joke, right? He literally has last year's champion in his quarter. Who does Nadal have? A hipless Kyrgios who will withdraw last minute?

A fair manner like in the World Cup where they do it like you mention above and rig it beyond belief every time?

World Cup in football is rigged, without a doubt, as is the Champions League. But it's much more easier, you have 2, 4 or 8 big balls in a pot, put one in the freezer beforehand and there you go.

Here you got in one pot around 40 unseeded players, far far impossible to rig it when picking the balls one by one.

Draw seems fairly top heavy. I'm biased but I think Djokovic should make the final fairly easily and then face a tough final vs Nadal/Del Po/Isner.

You can as easily rig it with a large bowl, small bowl or no bowl, if only the commission shall not check the drawing process and the equipment rigorously, both during and after the drawing ceremony.

e.g. if two guys are at the desk scheming together, one can simply put the chip/jetton in the centre of the bowl/cup or anywhere else they agreed it in advance, or place one chip above another, and the other guy can just take the needed chip pretending he is shuffling the cup thereafter, i.e. there is no need for the use of the rigged equipment in this case.

If only one guy at the desk is aware of the rigging e.g. an innocent tennis player is pulling the chips out, then the equipment should be rigged too, either chips, bowls or both.

If no one at the desk is aware of the rigging, then they should use the chips and bowl that can be rigged wirelessly, either using electromechanical devices or pure electronical e.g. e-ink paper chips.

It is of course even easier to rig the draw for the unseeded players beforehand using computer software and then just to place a couple of important seeded players in the right position thereafter.
