Wimbledon 2012 Women’s Singles Draw: Seeding

The 2012 Wimbledon Women’s Singles Draw uses a different seeding system than all other women’s tournaments, which OnCourt Advantage will explain in this post. The full list of 32 seeds for Wimbledon 2012 is listed below. The Wimbledon seeding is based on the latest WTA rankings before the draw is made i.e. 18 June 2012, except when the Seeding Committee decide changes are necessary “to make a more balanced draw”. 

The Top 32 ranked players in the draw become the most likely Top 32 seeds, except when former Wimbledon champions like Venus WILLIAMS and former Grand Slam champions like Kim CLIJSTERS have fallen in the rankings possibly due to injury. This year however the Wimbledon seeding committee decided NOT to make any changes and leave both No.55 Venus Williams and No.53 Kim Clijsters. In 2011 two players were bumped up in the seedings Serena Williams from No.26 to 7th seed and Venus Williams from No.33 to 23rd seed.

Two players who would have been seeds at Wimbledon this year have withdrawn with injury thus far: World No.16 Kaia Kanepi and the long injury lay-off continues for No.18 Andrea Petkovic.
