Rankings are subjective. The NCAA Tournament games are about matchups.

How can a tennis player participate in the Grand slam?

Each of the four Grand Slam tournaments has its own draw, so it's possible for a player to qualify for one or more, but not all. For each tournament, there are three major ways to enter. Some players are seeded; these are generally the top-ranked players in the world, although occasionally a player whose ranking is a bit lower but who is expected to do well at a particular tournament may also receive a seed. The most obvious example would be a clay court specialist at the French Open, the only tournament of the four that uses clay courts. Other players receive at-large bids; these work basically the same way as the seeds, except that they're provided to slightly lower-ranked players. In both cases, the tournament organizers choose which players enter by these methods. The last way in is through qualifying. Prior to the main tournament, qualifying tournaments are held for amateurs or lower-ranked professional players who don't expect to get a seed or at-large bid, but would still like to play. Winning a designated qualifying tournament earns the player an automatic entry into the main tournament, though qualifiers are usually placed against top-seeded players in the first round, so it's not too common for them to last long in the tournament.
