 Women'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.

Lindsay Davenport

Date of birth: 8.6.1976
Nationality: American
World ranking: 2
Record at Wimbledon:
'96 :: 2nd round
'97 :: 2nd round
'98 :: Quarter-final
'99 :: Won

Has become one of two dominant figures in the women's game.

Took the title last year by beating Steffi Graf in what proved to be the German great's last match in a Grand Slam.

Over 6ft tall, the personable Davenport has adapted her game to grass and tends to be too powerful for all but a few of her rivals.

Said she realised just how much bigger Wimbledon is by the extra level of recognition she received after last year's title compared with her 1998 US Open crown.
