For the second consecutive year, both Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams will be the top seeds at Wimbledon. It's the third straight Wimbledon No. 1 seed for Djokovic.

Men's defending champion Andy Murray is seeded third, with Rafael Nadal second and Roger Federer fourth. Stan Wawrinka rounds out the top five.

On the women's side, Li Na is the two seed, with Simona Halep, Agnieszka Radwanski, and Maria Sharapova trailing.

Last year's champion, Marion Bartoli, retired last August.

The Bryan brothers are tops in men's doubles, with China's Shuai Peng and Su-Wei Hsieh heading the women's side. The Williams sisters are seeded eighth.

The tournament opens next Monday.
