Djokovic, Wozniacki top Australian Open seedings
Sunday, January 8, 2012
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Caroline Wozniacki and defending champion Novak Djokovic are the top-seeded players at the Australian Open.
Tournament organizers stuck to convention and based the seedings for the season's first major on the current WTA and ATP rankings.
Djokovic is followed in the men's draw by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Of the top 32 men, only Robin Soderling and Marin Cilic are absent.
Petra Kvitova can move from No. 2 to No. 1 in the rankings by winning the Sydney International -- where nine of the top 10 women are playing, including Wozniacki-- but it wouldn't change the Australian Open seedings. All the top 32 women have entered the Melbourne draw.
