Djokovic Named Top Seed For Wimbledon; Defending Champion Murray Third Seed

Wimbledon, England

Novak Djokovic, the 2011 titlist, has been named top seed for The Championships on Wednesday.

Rafael Nadal, who clinched his 14th Grand Slam championship at Roland Garros two weeks ago and is currently No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, is No. 2 seed. Nadal's seeding was influenced by his first-round loss to Steve Darcis at Wimbledon last year and his opening-round exit to Dustin Brown at the Gerry Weber Open last week.

Defending champion Andy Murray is third seed, while fourth seed Roger Federer is aiming to capture his eighth Wimbledon title.

Stan Wawrinka, this year's Australian Open champion, has been named the No. 5 seed. It means that Wawrinka could meet Djokovic, Nadal or Murray in the quarter-finals.

The singles draw ceremony takes place on Friday.

The singles seeds reflect the Top 32 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, but the seeding order is then rearranged on a surface-based system. The formula is: 

• Take Emirates ATP Rankings points at 16 June 2014.
• Add 100 per cent points earned for all grass-court tournaments in the past 12 months.
• Add 75 per cent points earned for the best grass-court tournament in the 12 months before that.

Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, the winners of 15 major titles, are top seeds in the doubles draw. They have captured three Wimbledon titles in 2006, 2011 and 2013.
