However, for the moment it's impossible to find out the pairings for the first round. According to the regulations of the Women's World Championship (it's available on the FIDE website): "For purposes of pairings the players shall be ranked according to the most recent rating list. That means the pairings will be made according to the ratings for November 1st. The regulations state: "Pairings shall follow the principle of top half vs. lower half reversed (1-64, 2-63...). Thus the highest ranked player of the top half shall play the lowest ranked player of the bottom half. The second ranked player of the top half shall play the penultimate ranked player of the bottom half. And so on."
