 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.

Mary Pierce

Date of birth: 15.1.1975
Nationality: French
World ranking: 3
Record at Wimbledon:
'96 :: Quarter-final
'97 :: 4th round
'98 :: 1st round
'99 :: 4th round

At Wimbledon it has never quite happened for the Canadian born, Florida-based French player.

One quarter-final and two fourth round appearances in five visits is a poor return for a player of her talents.

Has added considerable strength to her game, but needs confidence to attack on grass if she is to make an impact.

Had the perfect pre-Wimbledon boost this year by beating Martina Hingis on the way to winning the French Open.
