2007 Wimbledon Men seeds Roger Federer atop

Lleyton Hewitt was promoted three placings to 16th by the Wimbledon seeding committee.

2007 Wimbledon Men seeds Roger Federer atop This will delay potential clashes with Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal until the fourth round. Hewitt's seeding protects him from clashing with any of the other top 15 seeds until at least the fourth round.

 No surprises at the top seeding. Number one is Roger Federer who will play for his fifth straight victory on the All England Club. Second and third seedings belong to Rafael Nadal and Andy Roddick.

 The new Wimbledon seeding formula includes not only adding 100% points earned by a player on grass over the past 12 months but also 75% of the points in the 12 months before that. As a result, Nikolay Davydenko drops to sixth in the seedings, but Novak Djokovic, and the Chilean Fernando Gonzalez move above Davydenko to take fourth and fifth spots.

 Roger Federer remains the favorite of the British bookmaker Bet365 to win the 2007 Wimbledon with betting odds of 4/11. He is followed by Rafael Nadal with odds 11/2 and Andy Roddick at 10/1. Novak Djokovic's odds on winning the Wimbledon are 14/1 and so are the odds on the 16th seeded Lleyton Hewitt.
