Roger gets No. 1 seeding for Wimbledon

16.06.2010 | Tennis

Roger has been seeded No. 1 for Wimbledon, ahead of Rafael Nadal. Our six-time Wimbledon champion received the top seeding even though Rafael Nadal recently replaced him as No. 1 in the ATP world rankings. Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam which does not strictly follow the ATP world rankings when deciding the seedlings, taking into account performances in grass court tournaments before making their decision.

 

Roger has the chance to win Wimbledon for the seventh time and can therefore draw level with record holders William Renshaw (winner: 1881-1886, 1889) and Pete Sampras (winner: 1993-1995, 1997-2000), each with seven victories in Wimbledon. This would be his 17th Grand Slam victory.

 

The draw will take place on Friday.
