 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.

Monica Seles

Date of birth: 2.12.1973
Nationality: American
World ranking: 6
Record at Wimbledon:
'96 :: 2nd round
'97 :: 3rd round
'98 :: Quarter-final
'99 :: 3rd round

Wimbledon is the one Grand Slam to elude this popular naturalised American.

Reached the final in 1992, the year before her career was interrupted by the back-stabbing incident by a crazed Steffi Graf fan in Hamburg.

Has never been the same player since, but reached the last eight in 1998 and confirmed her recovery from injury this year by taking the Italian Open title.

Listen out for confused commentators on Five Live trying to differentiate between her forehands and backhands - she's double-fisted on both sides and left-handed to add further confusion!
