Seed (sports)
A seed is a competitor or team in a sport or other tournament who is given a preliminary ranking for the purposes of the draw. Players/teams are "planted" into the bracket (tournament), bracket in a manner that is typically intended so that the best do not meet until later in the competition, usually based on regular season record. The term was first used in tennis, and is based on the idea of laying out a tournament ladder by arranging slips of paper with the names of players on them the way seeds or seedlings are arranged in a garden: smaller plants up front, larger ones behind.

Tennis Professional tennis tournaments seed players based on their rankings. The number of seeds varie ...
