Tomas Berdych who lost to Nadal in the 2010 Wimbledon final, is bumped up to the sixth seed, one place above Spain's David Ferrer, who is ranked higher but drops down to seventh seed due to his inferior grass-court record.



HOW THE SEEDINGS WORK


The seeds are the top 32 players on the ATP Entry System Position (ESP), BUT then rearranged on a surface-based system. Since 2002 a seeding committee has not been required for the Gentlemen’s Singles following an agreement made with the ATP. The seeding order is determined using an objective and transparent system to reflect more accurately an individual player’s grass court achievements.


The formula is:


- Take ESP points at 18 June 2012

- Add 100% points earned for all grass court tournaments in the past 12 months

- Add 75% points earned for the best grass court tournament in the 12 months before that.
