Nadal. He's no. 1 and defending champ.

There is a formula. Current ranking points plus the grass points of the last 2 (?) years I think. So if Nadal plays, he will still be seeded first.

Re: Who will be first seed in wimbledone ?

If Federer is no 1 seed, Murray is no 2 seed and Rafa has withdrawn. Only way Fed gets no 1 seed sorry.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Re: Who will be first seed in wimbledone ?

The Wimbledon seeding formula doubles a player's ranking points from grass during the current season and adds on an extra 75 percent of the player's best grass-court result from the year before.

Not sure how absence of play "during current season" affects the Fedal
Maybe it will benefit Murray, and he'll be Number 1!

Re: Who will be first seed in wimbledone ?

It's not exactly rocket science to figure out who when the person holding No1 and last Wimbledon title is the same. It's not randomly drawn or awarded based on who's got more hairy chest or better aligned water bottles

Rafael Nadal.

If Federer had played and won Halle it may have been an interesting calculation.
