At Wimbledon the seeding for the Ladies singles draw has been finalised with the WTA Tour rankings being used as at 14 June 2010. The seeding is based entirely on the merit of the WTA rankings, which are a reflection of every players performances over the past 12 months. At each of the 4 Grand Slam tournaments there are 32 seeds.

This year we have a very strong draw with 32 out of the world’s top 33 ranked players being seeded and contesting to see who will win the 2010 Wimbledon Ladies Singles title. World No.5 Elena Dementieva has withdrawn after not recovering from her calf injury that she carried through to the Roland Garros semi finals.

After the lengths that are gone through to calculate who the men’s seeds will be, Wimbledon just follows the ususal procedure for the women’s singles event and allocates the women’s seeds according to their ranking. Do you think that Wimbledon should use the same grass court seeding for both the men and women OR always go according to the rankings?

Pictured above is Italian Francesca Schiavone after playing a single handed slice backhand. The 29 year old turns 30 on the 3rd day of Wimbledon just adding to her recent celebrations. The 1.66m Schiavone won the women’s singles title at Roland Garros earlier this month, is ranked at a career high No.6 and has achieved her best Grand Slam result at 3 of her past 4 Grand Slam events. Wimbledon 2009 was one of those, where Schiavone made the quarter finals for the 1st time.

The following is the seeding for the 2010 Wimbledon Championships. The actual seeding of the players runs down the left hand side of the page and is placed before each name. The number after each players name is her current WTA ranking.
