A team or player's seed is their position in a playoff/tournament/championship.

It ranks the players or teams in that particular competition and it helps determine who plays who in a playoff bracket. The NCAA basketball for example has 4 divisions each with 16 teams. The #1 seed is the best team in each division. The #1 plays #16, #2 plays #15, #3 plays #14, etc.

In tennis, they sometimes have a player
This can happen when a player is not playing in that tournament due to either injury or coz the player entered a different tournament
Rank is the place you are in the world (everyone).
Seed is the place you are in that tournament or competition (the players in that comp).
