# 2014 Wimbledon Seedings: Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams Grab Top Spots

Former champions Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams were official named top seeds at the upcoming 2014 Wimbledon championships.

While the women’s seedings match the WTA rankings, since 2002 the tournament had used a formula to compute the men’s seedings.

Under the formula 2013 finalist Djokovic jumped World No. 1 Rafael Nadal, who lost first round last year, to gain the top seed.

2014 champion Andy Murray also climbed from a ranking of No. 5 to 3 in the seedings.

This is the men’s seeding formula:

Gentlemen’s Seeding Formula

Revised seeding arrangements for men introduced in 2001 when seedings committee disbanded. Formula amended in 2002 for men as follows:

* Take ESP points at 16 June 2014

* Add 100% points earned for all grass court tournament in past 12 months

* Add 75% points earned for best grass court tournament in 12 months before that.
