LONDON (AP) — Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams are seeded No. 1 for Wimbledon, while defending men’s champion Andy Murray has been bumped up two spots above his world ranking to No. 3.

Djokovic, the 2011 Wimbledon champion, is ranked No. 2 but was given the top seeding by the All England Club ahead of top-ranked Rafael Nadal.

Murray last year became the first British player to win the Wimbledon men’s title since 1936.

Seven-time champion Roger Federer is No. 4, while Australian Open winner Stan Wawrinka is down two spots from his world ranking at No. 5.

Wimbledon takes a player’s grass-court record into account in assigning the men’s seedings.

The women’s seedings, however, stick to the WTA rankings.

That means five-time champion Williams is No. 1, followed by Li Na, French Open runner-up Simona Halep, Agnieszka Radwanska and Maria Sharapova.
