Wimbledon released its seedings earlier today, deferring to the rankings and not a formular per their new policy they announced last summer.

Novak Djokovic is the top seed for a seventh time. The tournament favorite and 5-time champion is halfway to an historic Calendar Slam.

Djokovic, though, could meet Roger Federer as early as the quarterfinals in a rematch of their 2019 epic final. Federer, the 8-time champion, has slipped to a 7th seed which puts him in the path of a Top 4 seeds in the quarterfinals.

One of those top seeds could miss Wimbledon as Dominic Thiem is struggling with a wrist issue.

“Yesterday during the match I had a problem with my wrist. I went immediately to do an MRI at the hospital in Palma de Mallorca. The results weren’t that clear and I have decided to go to Barcelona to check with a specialist,” Thiem posted on twitter.

In the women’s draw, Ash Barty is the top seed and the pick to win. The Australian, who has never made the Wimbledon quarters, leads an open field that includes 7-time champion Serena Williams, defending champion Simona Halep who is returning from a calf injury and 2-time winner Petra Kvitova.

The draws will be out Friday morning with play beginning on Monday.
