When players arrive on court, they'll put down their bags and towels on seats to the umpire's left and right. Is there a rule that determines who sits where, or is it simply that the first player walking on picks a seat?

    Interesting question. ATP rules don't seem to say; the ITF rules specify how to decide which end they play from, but not where they sit. I'm guessing there is a rule, or at least an understanding (probably the higher seed gets to pick?) but not sure. – Joe Sep 8 '20 at 4:21
