World number one men’s tennis player Roger Federer will be seeded first in the men’s singles draw at the tennis event of London Olympics. He will be followed by second ranked Serbian Novak Djokovic and Britain’s Andy Murray, who is ranked third in the world.

Sadly for the tennis followers, world number three and last time’s champion Rafael Nadal of Spain is going to miss London Games with a knee injury.

On the women’s side, Victoria Azarenka, Agnieszka Radwanska, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams will be seeded first, second, third and fourth respectively.
