 Men's Seeds
Wimbledon seeds will be announced on Monday 19 June, with the full draw on Tuesday 20 June.
BBC Radio 5 Live's Iain Carter has compiled his own guide on the top 16 expected to catch the eye at SW19 this year.

Magnus Norman

Date of birth: 30.05.1976
Nationality: Swedish
World ranking: 2
Record at Wimbledon:
'96 :: -
'97 :: 3rd round
'98 :: 1st round
'99 :: 3rd round

A Swede with a difference, he's prepared to show his emotions on court.

After winning this year's Masters Series event in Rome would not come into press conference until he could find the right hair gel.

By the way, he is a brilliant tennis player as well, after matching Agassi and Sampras with five titles last year, he is the form man of 2000 on the ATP Tour.

Has a powerful predominantly baseline game - needs to take a leaf out of the Agassi book of confidence to crack it on grass.

Has only won four matches in three years at Wimbledon.

Reached the final of the French Open this year before falling to Gustavo Kuerten at Roland Garros after saving 10 match points.
