Defending champion Andy Murray's indifferent form of late did not prevent him being named top seed for Wimbledon for the first time on Wednesday. The 30-year-old Scot and world number one -- who suffered a shock first round defeat at the hands of journeyman Australian Jordan Thompson at last week's Queen's tournament -- will not face any of his fellow members of the 'Big Four' until the semi-finals.
Novak Djokovic, whose form has also taken a turn for the worse, Roger Federer, fresh from winning at Halle, and Rafael Nadal, reinvigorated after triumphing at the French Open, are all seeded in the top four with Murray for the first time at a Grand Slam event Authentic Alan Trammell Youth Jersey since Wimbledon in 2014.
Djokovic -- a three-time Wimbledon champion -- and seven-time champion Federer both benefit from the Wimbledon organisers' habit of not sticking blindly to the world rankings.
Djokovic is raised to second seed despite being the world number four, and the Swiss master is promoted to third seed from a global ranking of five with second-ranked Nadal dropping down to fourth seed.
World number three Stan Wawrinka -- overwhelmed by Nadal in the French Open final -- has never reached the last four at Wimbledon and drops to fifth seeding.
The player in the men's draw who gains most benefit from http://www.dolphinsshopnfl.com/Authentic-Adam-Joseph-Duhe-Jersey Wimbledon's liberal seedings policy is Luxembourg's Gilles Muller, who is lifted 10 places from 26th in the world to 16th on account of his love of grass.
The women's draw sees world number one and last year's beaten finalist Angelique Kerber of Germany top the seedings with Romania's French Open finalist Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic and Ukrainian Elina Svitolina rounding out the top four.
Defending champion Serena Williams is absent as she awaits giving birth to her first child.
Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is seeded 11 and provided she recovers from an abdominal injury, which ruled her out of Eastbourne this week, could provide a fairytale winner after suffering severe wounds to her left playing hand while fighting off a knife-wielding burglar at her home last December.
FIFA is set to shift India's Under-17 World Cup matches from Mumbai to the national capital Delhi as the apex soccer body has taken the host government's request "very seriously". The All India Football Federation (AIFF) initially wanted Mumbai to host Dolphins Youth Jersey India's home matches but later asked FIFA to shift them to Delhi due to pressure from the sports ministry as it felt it was appropriate that the capital hosts the home team's games.
Asked if they have finalised on shifting India's round robin matches from Mumbai to Delhi, FIFA's head of events Jaime Yarza told PTI, "We are working on the most beneficial decision for the tournament. We take the requests from the Indian Government very seriously, as it's our main partner in the organisation of the FIFA U-17 World Cup."
As hosts, India would normally be placed in Group A and will be the number one team -- A1 -- in the four-team group. Navi Mumbai was originally scheduled to host Group A matches but the AIFF's request means Delhi could now host those while Navi Mumbai will have to settle for Group B games.
A source, in the know of the developments, said FIFA is "very close" to shift the matches.
"Together with the AIFF and the Government, this world cup will change http://www.officialauthenticbroncostore.com/Nike-Aqib-Talib-Jersey.html future of football in India. We are convinced to reach a decision which will satisfy all parties," Yarza said.
The first FIFA event in India will be held across six Indian cities from October 6 to 28.
Though he did not reveal the names, Yarza said at least two top players will be present on the the day of the official draw in Mumbai on July 7.
"Well, we cannot spoil the fun for the fans. We will have two top players for the official draw on the 7th July, as well as some other appearances until the start of the tournament.
"But it's difficult to find time on the agendas of such football legends, so we'd rather work carefully to make sure that these legends make an impact on the Indian fans. But one thing we can confirm: football fans will not be disappointed!"
Even as the response to ticket sales continues to be lukewarm in centres such as Goa and Delhi, Yarza sounded confident Brandon Marshall Authentic Jersey that it would pick up after the draw.
"We are very satisfied with venues like Guhawati, Kochi or Kolkata. The Indian public seems to be aware of the importance of this world cup for the future of football in India, and no one would like to miss the stars of tomorrow in their own country.
"Having said that, we need to increase our efforts in Navi Mumbai, New Delhi and Goa. But it's customary that ticket sales increases once the teams' venues are known, so we'll analyse carefully the ticket sales reports after the draw. In general, FIFA is very satisfied with ticket sales until now."
