M1 & W1 – Seeds 1-4

M2 & W2 – Seeds 5-8

M3 & W3 – Seed 9-16

So that’s eight players you need to select, four men and four women. The list of seeds can be seen by clicking here: List of seeds

Wildcard Players – then you must pick one unseeded male player in the draw and one unseeded female player in the draw (this includes those who have won through from the qualifiers).
