Djokovic, Williams Seeded Tops at Wimbledon



NOVAK Djokovic and Serena Williams, both number one ranked players in the world, are the top seeds at this year’s Wimbledon Game, which starts Monday, June 29.

In the men’s category, Djokovic is followed by Roger Federer, a seven-time champion. Andy Murray, winner of the 2013 edition, is seeded third, while Stand Warwrinka, current French Open champion, is fourth and on the fifth is Kei Nishikori. Rounding out the top 10 are Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic, David Ferrer, Marin Cilic and Raphael Nadal.

Despite his drop in form and low seeding, Nadal is considered among the top group of title contenders, behind Djokovic, Murray and Federer. The two-time champion was seeded Number 10 for Wimbledon on Wednesday, his lowest seeding ever at the All England Club.

The seeding means Nadal could face top contenders as early as the fourth round and one of the top-four-seeded players in the quarterfinals.


In the women’s category, following Williams in the top five are defending champion Petra Kvitova, Simona Halep, Maria Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki. The rest of the top 10 are Lucie Safarova, Ana Ivanovic, Ekaterina Makarova, Carla Suarez Navarro and Angelique Kerber.

Last year’s losing finalist, Eugenie Bouchard, is at number 12 after a season marked by early-round losses.
