Rafael Nadal and Caroline Wozniacki will carry the top seedings into next week's Australian Open tennis, reflecting their No. 1 rankings in men's and women's tennis.

With seedings no longer done on organisers' discretion but purely on rankings, the nine-time Grand Slam winner, Nadal, was named on Thursday as leading the men's seedings from Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Sweden's Robin Soderling.

Wozniacki heads the women's seedings from Vera Zvonareva, Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams. — AP
