 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.

Nicolas Kiefer

Date of birth: 05.07.1977
Nationality: German
World ranking: 20
Record at Wimbledon:
'96 :: -
'97 :: Quarter-final
'98 :: 3rd round
'99 :: 2nd round

Germany's biggest hope, but has yet to show evidence that he can grab the Championships by the scruff of the neck in the style of celebrated compatriot Boris Becker.

Has yet to build on run to the last eight in his debut year of 1997.

Reminiscent of Andre Agassi in the way he plays, but lacks the Las Vegan's consistency.

Despite being dogged by injury he finished 1999 ranked six in the world.
