Britain's Andy Murray has been seeded eighth at Wimbledon, which gets under way on Monday.

The 20-year-old Scot is a doubt for the tournament having been out of action with a wrist injury since 15 May, but he plans to return this week.

Murray is scheduled to play at the Boodles Challenge exhibition event.

Defending champion Roger Federer is the top men's seed for Wimbledon, while world number one Justine Henin heads the women's singles.

The men's seedings are based on the current world rankings, but are slightly adjusted to take into account grass-court performances in the last two years.


French Open champion and last year's runner-up Rafael Nadal is seeded second, ahead of Andy Roddick. World number four Nikolay Davydenko is seeded sixth with Novak Djokovic and Fernando Gonzalez moving above him in the list.

On the women's side, former champion Venus Williams moves from 31st in the world to number 24 seed and world number 19 Vera Zvonareva has been ruled out with a wrist injury.
