Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams top seeds for Wimbledon
Wednesday June 24th, 2015

Defending champion and men's No. 1 Novak Djokovic is the top seed at Wimbledon this year, while two-time champion Rafael Nadal was seeded 10th, his lowest seeding ever at the tournament.

Seven-time champion Roger Federer, 2013 winner Andy Murray, French Open champion Stan Wawrinka, and Kei Nishikori are next on the seeding list. 

Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic, David Ferrer, Marin Cilic and Nadal round out the top 10.

Nadal’s previous lowest seeding at All England Club was in 2013 when he was seeded fifth.

Women's No. 1 Serena Williams, who is 32-1 this year and has won the first two major tournaments of the year, received the No. 1 seed on the women’s side.

Defending Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, the only woman to beat Williams this year, is seeded second.

The women’s top 10 seeds are the same as this week’s WTA rankings.

Eugenie Bouchard, who lost in last year’s final to Kvitova, is seeded 12th.

The tournament’s draw will be announced on Friday.
