World number one Andy Murray has been confirmed as the top seed for this year's edition of Wimbledon with Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal rounding up the top four in that order.

The men's seedings are not done entirely on ranking but as reigning champion it is no surprise that Murray is seeded top.

Djokovic's historic strength at Wimbledon, after a disastrous showing in the Australian Open, means he takes second.
Federer, who won in Melbourne and has a strong history at Wimbledon, winning seven times, takes the third seed whilst French Open champion Nadal, twice a winner, is fourth.

Stan Wawrinka, who was knocked out in the second round last year, completes the top five.

Elsewhere the hugely talented, but often unpredictable, Nick Kyrgios is seeded 20, with fan favourite Juan Martin Del Porto down at 30.
