Rafael Nadal will be seeded No. 5 at Wimbledon, setting up the possibility of a quarterfinal match against Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray.

The All England Club released the seedings Wednesday for this year's championships, with the top five in the ATP rankings remaining in their positions.

Djokovic is No. 1, followed by Murray, Federer, David Ferrer and Nadal.

Nadal, who was sidelined for about seven months with a left knee injury after losing in the second round at Wimbledon last year, dropped to No. 5 in the rankings after the French Open, despite beating Ferrer to win the tournament for a record eighth time.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga jumps one spot in the seedings to No. 6, with Tomas Berdych dropping a place to No. 7.

The women's seedings follow the WTA rankings, with Serena Williams at No. 1.

The tournament starts Monday. The draw will be held Friday.
