The men’s seeds for this years event has a very familar look with world number 1 Rafael Nadal heading the field with Roger Federer 2nd seed.

The biggest change from recent grand slams sees Andy Murray drop to 5th seed after Robin Soderling just crept past the scot to 4th in the world rankings after winning the warm up event last week.

There is just one player missing from the world’s top 32, Spain’s Juan Carlos Ferrero will miss the event as he continues to recover from left knee and right wrist surgery he had at the end of 2010.
