Melbourne, Australia : Australian Open organizers have stuck with convention and kept the seedings for the season's first major in line with WTA and ATP rankings, meaning Caroline Wozniacki will be top seed in the women's draw even if she loses top spot to Petra Kvitova at the Sydney International this week.
Defending champion Novak Djokovic is seeded No. 1 in the men's draw, followed by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Of the top 32 men, only Robin Soderling and Marin Cilic are absent.
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 too late to affect Australian Open seedings list. All the top 32 women have entered the Melbourne draw.
