Gold Coast tennis player learns seeding for Wimbledon

Gold Coast tennis sensation Samantha Stosur has been seeded 17th for Wimbledon next week.

Ipswich teenager Ashleigh Barty reached the final stage of qualifying at the All Enlgand Club.  The Courier Mail reported she was too steady for Ukrainian Lyudmyla Kichenok, triumphing 6-3 7-5.

The former junior Wimbledon champion joined Victorian Sam Groth, New South Welshman James Duckworth and South Australians Luke Saville and Alex Bolt in the last round.


Novak Djokovic is the men’s top seed ahead of Spanish world number one Rafael Nadal for the tournament.

While Bernard Tomic was bundled out of his Wimbledon warm-up event.  The former Gold Coaster lost to top seed Richard Gasquet in three sets at Eastbourne.
