Defending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic has been confirmed as the top seed in this year's mens' singles at the All England Club, while French Open winner Maria Sharapova is the top seed in the women's singles

Djokovic, the current World No 1 was beaten by Rafael Nadal in the French Open final earlier this month, but he retains the top seeding ahead of the second seeded Spaniard. 

Djokovic’s defeat to Nadal in Paris marked the end of a run of three successive Grand Slam final victories over the World No 2 which started when he won Wimbledon for the first time last year. Six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is seeded third as he seeks to win a Grand Slam for the first time since the 2010 Australian Open.
