World No. 1 Roger Federer is top seed for the London 2012 Olympic Tennis Event, being staged at the All England Club, Wimbledon, from Saturday. Novak Djokovic, the Beijing Olympic bronze medallist, is second seed.
Seeds are based on the South African Airways ATP Rankings of Monday, 23 July. The seeds for the doubles event are based on the combined rankings of each team, with each player using the higher of their singles or doubles ranking.
The draw will be made on Thursday at 11 a.m. local time.
Americans Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, bronze medallists in Beijing four years ago, are top seeds in doubles competition, while defending champions Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka are No. 6 seeds.
If there are two players or doubles teams from the same country, they will be drawn in opposite halves of the draw. If there are three or more players/teams from the same country, they will be drawn in different quarters of the draw.
The draw for the 16-team mixed doubles event will be held during the Olympic Tennis Event on Tuesday, 31 July.
