World number two Rafael Nadal has been seeded third for Wimbledon behind top-ranked Novak Djokovic and world number three Roger Federer.

It means the Spaniard, rather than eight-time winner Federer, is likely to be in the same half of the draw as Djokovic and thus in line to face the defending champion in the semi-final.

The women’s seedings reflect the world rankings, so Serena Williams is the 11th seed and Johanna Konta 19th.

The 2019 championship begins on Monday.

Wimbledon seeding is different from the other Grand Slams in that it does not always follow world rankings and is affected by grass-court performances.

Nadal said it “doesn’t seem right” when asked about his likely seeding behind Federer.
