The seeding’s for the 2016 Wimbledon Championships have been revealed; with defending champions Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams seeded top for the Men’s and Women’s singles.
The draw for the most prestigious championships in tennis will take place on Friday morning. British No.1 Andy Murray has been seeded number two for Wimbledon, fresh off the back of his claiming a record fifth title at the Aegon Championships at the Queen’s Club.

The announcement of the seeding’s means that Djokovic and Murray would not meet until the final, in what would be a record-equalling eighth Grand Slam final between the pair.
Djokovic arrives at the tournament as the world’s finest player and he will be looking for a third consecutive title at the All England Club; fresh on the back of victories at the Australian Open and the French Open.
Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is seeded at number three and will be aiming to make it to a 10th final at his favourite venue.
