World No. 1 Rafael Nadal has been seeded second at Wimbledon which puts him in the opposite half of the draw to Roger Federer.
Switzerland’s Roger Federer, world No.2 and eight-time Wimbledon champion, was named first seed for the grass court tournament, which starts July 2, as Wimbledon gives extra weight to a player’s successes on grass in the previous two years.
Marin Cilic is to be third seed, followed by Alexander Zverev and Juan Martin del Potro.

1. Roger Federer (Switzerland, world No. 2) 2. Rafael Nadal (Spain, world No. 1) 3. Marin Cilic (Croatia, world No. 5) 4.
