I'm not sure if I got something wrong here: There's a seeding, but now that the group play is over, I don't understand some situations in R16:
There are some unseeded players playing against each other, but e.g. Simon Santoso (#9 seed) plays against Lee Chong Wei (#1 seed). Why? I thought the sense of seeding is to prevent top players knocking each other out in early rounds, right? But now either SS or (less likely) LCW will be knocked out, while one of the less capable players will make it to the quarter finals. I'm not getting it.

Ah okay, thanks for the clarification. But why do you say it's his luck that he meets the 1st seed? I'd say bad luck that he doesn't meet him later instead(?)
