Defending champion Sir Andy Murray and women’s world No1 Angelique Kerber have been confirmed as top seeds for Wimbledon, which starts on Monday.
Murray heads the men’s seeds despite being installed by bookmakers as the second favourite behind Roger Federer following a spell of erratic form and injury concerns.
The Briton lost in the first round of the Aegon Championship at Queen’s Club last week and pulled out of a planned match at the Aspall Tennis Classic in London on Tuesday, citing a sore hip.
Murray is expected to play in the exhibition event at the Hurlingham Club on Friday – only the world No1’s second match on grass this year.
Three-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is seeded second, with resurgent pair Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal third and fourth respectively.
Federer, 35, will become the oldest man in the Open Era to win Wimbledon if he claims an eighth men’s singles title at SW19, while Nadal, 31, is targeting successive grand slams after winning the French Open for a landmark 10th time earlier this month.
Kerber is seeded No1 in the absence of pregnant defending champion Serena Williams, with Romanian Simon Halep second.
Britain’s Johanna Konta is sixth, while two-time champion Petra Kvitova, who on Sunday won her first title since sustaining career-threatening injuries in a stabbing, is 11th.
Top seeds are kept apart from second seeds in the draw, meaning they cannot meet until the final.
