This draw is not correct...they did not seed the qualifying correctly. Sheryl Lotts should be the 2 seed (26th seed overall) and Kelly Fields the 3 seed (27th overall) in the qualifying so they would play for Q2 and Q3 respectively, not play each other. I hope they fix it because they are being shafted if not.
