 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.

Cedric Pioline

Date of birth: 15.06.1969
Nationality: French
World ranking: 8
Record at Wimbledon:
'96 :: 4th round
'97 :: Runner-up
'98 :: 1st round
'99 :: Quarter-final

A quality performer, particularly in Grand Slams.

Lost to Sampras in 1997 final.

Has a deceptive game that appears to lack power, but can ghost almost untracked to the net, where delicate hands dispense volleyed winners at will.

Lost to Henman in the quarters last year, but always a good bet to be in shake up in the second week.
