Defending champion Novak Djokovic and women’s world no.1 Iga Swiatek top the seedings at this year’s Wimbledon.

Djokovic has had luck on his side with men’s world no.1 Daniil Medvedev barred from this year’s competition, while Alexander Zverev, the world no.2 is out injured.

Zverev had surgery on torn ligaments in his right ankle this month after he was forced to retire from his French Open semi-final against Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic recently lost his top spot to Medvedev after not being able to defend his Australian Open crown and losing 2000 ranking points as a result. He will slip further down the rankings after Wimbledon was stripped of ranking points this year by the ATP and WTA.

Rafael Nadal finds himself second on the men’s side of Wimbledon seedings with the Spaniard halfway through a calendar grand slam having won the Australian Open and the French Open on the trot.

It also results in Djokovic and Nadal finding themselves in different halves of the draw and they cannot face each other until the men’s final on July 10.

Casper Ruud, Stefanos Tsitstipas, and Carlos Alcaraz complete the top 5 of the men’s draw.

On the women’s side, Estonian Annett Kontaveit, the world no.2 follows Iga Swiatek followed by Ons Jabeur, Paula Badosa, and Maria Sakkari rounding out the top 5.
