Rafael Nadal

In an remarkable storyline twist ahead of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships, Rafael Nadal, a former two-time champion at the event, will be forced to contest the main draw this season seeded No. 10 – his lowest ever at the grass court Grand Slam event.

Nadal’s position in the tournament means that he will begin to face tough competition in the fourth round and a potential top seed in the quarter-final stage of the tournament.

Djokovic leads the 2015 seeding at the tournament for the men’s single draw and is followed by seven-time champion Roger Federer, 2013 winner Andy Murray, French Open champion Stan Wawrinka, and Kei Nishikori. Rounding out the top 10 are Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic, David Ferrer, Marin Cilic and Nadal.

Until 2002, the All England Club had its own seeding committee and used its discretion to seed players outside the rankings. Since then, it has used a ”surface-based system” in agreement with the ATP that reflects grass-court results, and doesn’t veer much from the rankings.
