2011 Wimbledon - ATP + WTA Seeds

Posted on June 15, 2011 at 4:19 PM






Tomas has been seeded 6th for the 125th edition of the Wimbledon Championship






Nadal, Wozniacki head Wimbledon seeds



 

Seedings for the 2011 Championships at Wimbledon have been released for both the men and women's draw. The tournament will run from June 20th to July 3rd at the All England Club in Wimbledon, England.


Defending champion Rafael Nadal and women's world number one Caroline Wozniacki were named top seeds for next week's Wimbledon Championships on Wednesday.


In the men’s competition, Andy Murray has been handed the fourth seeding as expected after the All England Club elected to adhere to the top-five world rankings.


Defending champion Rafael Nadal is therefore the top seed ahead of Novak Djokovic, with six-time winner Roger Federer third on the list.


Murray’s seeding ensures he will not play any of the top four before the semi-finals as he aims to claim his breakthrough grand slam success on home turf.


Nadal’s presence at the top of the pile, meanwhile, has meant that Federer will not be top seed for the first time since his maiden Wimbledon success in 2003.

 

Tournament officials mirrored the current world rankings for their top five seeds in the mens and womens singles, with Nadal ahead of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Sweden's Robin Soderling.


The seeding order follows the WTA ranking list, except where in the opinion of the Committee, a change is necessary to produce a balanced draw. The only changes this year are Serena Williams and Venus Williams moving to No.7 and No.23 respectively (after the withdrawal due to injury of Kim Clijsters), which "reflects the balance between their proven records and also their lack of competitive play in the past 12 months", explained Wimbledon Referee Andrew Jarrett.
