The world no.1 Novak Djokovic takes the top seed in the men's singles at the upcoming Australian Open 2024. The ten-time Australian Open champion triggers a potential final against Carlos Alcaraz who bags the second seed while Russia's Dannil Medvedev claims the no.3.

In the women's singles, top-ranked Iga Swiatek bags a first seed while the current Australian Open champion and the world no.2 Arnya Sabalenka claims the second seed. The last edition's runner-up Elena Rybakina, who kicked off the 2024 with a Brisbane International title this week, takes the fourth seed while the young US Open champion Coco Gauff takes the fourth seed.

All top 32 ATP-ranked players take the seedings in the men's singles but there is a change in the women's seedings due to the absence of injured Karolina Muchova, who currently occupies the no.9 position in the WTA rankings. Czech's Petra Kvitova, two-time Wimbledon champion, also misses out due to pregnancy
