Wimbledon just released their top seed for the upcoming tournament as World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz is all set to start as the No.1 seed in Men’S singles. 23 Grand Slams champion Novak Djokovic will be the No.2 seed for the Wimbledon 2023.
Carlos Alcaraz lost the French Open 2023 semi-final against Novak Djokovic and will be looking to win his second grand slam at Wimbledon. The 20-year-old Spanish tennis player will be the first Gentlemen’s Singles top seed at Wimbledon not named Djokovic, Federer, Murray or Nadal since 2003. Although Djokovic won the last slam, Carlos took over the ATP Rankings after winning a grass-court tune-up tournament at Queen’s Club.
Djokovic has won the tournament the last 4 times he participated and he will look to equal Roger Federer’s 8-Wimbledon title record.
Former US Open champion Daniil Medvedev and Norway’s Casper Ruud, a recent runner-up at Roland-Garros, are the No.3 and No.4 seeds respectively.
On the other hand, Iga Swiatek was seeded No. 1 for Wimbledon 2023 as the World No.1 will try to go beyond the fourth round this time. Iga has been the World No.1 ranked tennis player since April 2022. Moreover, after winning the French Open last month, she will be confident to get her best result at the tournament.
Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina, Jessica Pegula and Caroline Garica are the other top-seeded names in the Women’s Singles. Along with the top 10, unseeded and wild card, Venus Williams will be one of the players to watch out for in Ladies’ singles.
The Draw for the ladies’ and gentlemen’s singles will be conducted at 2:30 pm on Friday 30 June.
