Roger Federer is set to return at the All England Club where the 132nd Championships edition will take place. The oldest Tennis tournament in the world, Wimbledon is a special place for the 36-year-old Swiss. An eight-time champion in the past, Roger Federer is also the defending champion after that straightforward success of the previous year against Marin Cilic.

He may have lost in Halle to an enthusiast Borna Coric, but Roger Federer is still heavily seen as the main favorite at Wimbledon. Dropping the No. 1 seat in the rankings to Rafael Nadal didn't influence the seeding process with Wimbledon being the sole tournament that still uses a composite ranking to determine its seeds.

According to ESPN, the Swiss star is the No. 1 seed at Wimbledon while Nadal comes in the second slot which guarantees that they can only meet if both make it to the final.

Roger Federer path at Wimbledon is yet to be determined

Being the top-seeded player in men's contest gives Roger Federer a competitive edge worth being taken into consideration. Although he might avoid any early threat, the path is not completely clear. There are some names outside of the seeded list. Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka are not on the seeded list and they give a hard time to any other player, including Roger Federer.

For those eager to learn more on how the seeded list takes shape, the next video is set to shade some clarifying light on the matter.

According to the Telegraph, the official main draw ceremony will take place on Friday, June 29. So, we have to wait until then to see where the dark horses (Andy Murray, Wawrinka) will land on the main draw.

Roger Federer started to show signs of weakness

While competing in Stuttgart and especially in Halle, Roger Federer put on display some uncharacteristic signs of fatigue, lack of vision and impatience.

In Stuttgart, he was able to finish up the job and to secure his third title in 2018 but in Halle, he fell victim to his own weaknesses.

Back in 2017, we never stopped wondering how Roger Federer was able to weaponize a rather defensive backhand shot. That change of strategy banked him a great deal of success, especially against his longtime rival Rafael Nadal.

Those days are over now as he seemed a bit sluggish throughout the last two weeks of play. Wimbledon is just around the corner and the defending champion might find that protecting his crown is indeed a difficult task.

Last year he was able to bag a record eighth Wimbledon title without dropping a single set throughout the tournament.
