Defending champion Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal headline the Wimbledon seedings while British No 1 Kyle Edmund is seeded 22nd.
Federer won an eighth title at the All England Club last year and will be the top seed despite losing his world No 1 ranking to Nadal on Monday.
The Swiss player suffered a surprise defeat to Borna Coric in the Gerry Weber Open final in Halle last weekend, while Nadal has yet to feature on grass since winning an 11th French Open title earlier this month.
Federer suffered back-to-back defeats in Wimbledon finals to Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015 but ended a four-year wait without a title at the All England Club against Marin Cilic last year.
The 36-year-old won two Grand Slam titles during a resurgence in form, while Nadal won the other two major titles on offer and the pair have continued their dominance on the sport's biggest stage by sharing the Australian Open and French Open.
Edmund will lead the British charge in the men's draw after his rise up the rankings this season which began with his memorable run to the Australian Open semi-finals in January.
The 23-year-old also matched his career-best run to the third round of the French Open before suffering a five-set defeat to Fabio Fognini.
The Brit doesn't hold a great record at the tournament and his run to the second round in 2017 is his best performance.
Former US Open champion Marin Cilic underlined his grass-court credentials with a second Queen's title last weekend and Alexander Zverev complete the top-four seeds, with the draw scheduled for Wednesday.
Two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka, who met in the first round at Eastbourne on Monday, are two notable absentees from the men's seedings after the second half of last year's campaigns were halted through injury.
Murray is yet to make a final decision on whether he will feature in the tournament and is due to continue his comeback against fellow Brit Edmund at Eastbourne on Wednesday.
