Nadal, Wozniacki top seeds for Australian Open

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

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

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

Spain has three players among the top-10 men’s seeds: Nadal, David Ferrer at No. 7 and Fernando Verdasco at No. 9.

Andy Murray of Britain comes in at No. 5 and Andy Roddick of the United States — one of four seeded Americans — at No. 8.
