Sixty-four players seeded from seed 1 to seed 64 participated in a knock-out tennis tournament. Seed 1 is the highest seed and seed 64 is the lowest seed. The tournament would be played in six rounds i.e., first round, second round, third round, quarterfinals, semi finals and final. In the first round, the player with the highest seed (i.e., 1) would play with the player with the lowest seed (i.e., 64) which is designated Match No.1.
Similarly, the player with the second highest seed (i.e., 2) would play with the player with the second lowest seed (i.e., 63), which is designated Match No.2 and so on. In the second round, the winner of the Match No.1 of the first round would play with the winner of the Match No.32 of the first round and this match is designated Match No.1 of the second round.
Similarly, the winner of the Match No.2 of the first round would play with the winner of the Match No.31 of the first round and this match is designated Match No.2 of the second round and so on. In the similar pattern the subsequent rounds will be played.
