**Answer the next 10 questions based on the information given below:**

64 players taking part in a knockout tennis tournament are seeded from 1 to 64 with seed 1 being the top seed, seed 2 the second seed and so on. In the first round, seed 1 plays seed 64 which is termed match 1 of round 1, seed 2 plays seed 63 which is termed match 2 of round 1 and so on till match 32 of round 1 where seed 32 plays seed 33.

In the next round, the winner of match 1 of round 1 plays the winner of the last match (match 32) of round 1, the winner of match 2 of round 1 plays the winner of the second last match (match 31) of round 1 and so on. This continues till only one player is left undefeated.

If in any match a lower seeded player defeats a higher seeded player, it is called an upset.
