With 16 first round matches postponed and showers predicted for the rest of the week, the Wimbledon warmup could already be facing a Monday final for a second straight year. Britain's Andy Murray beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in the 2011 final.

Murray is the top seed this year, ahead of second-seeded Tsonga.

The top eight seeds, which include seventh-seeded and four-time former champion Andy Roddick, have byes into the second round.

Another four-time champion, Lleyton Hewitt, has been given a wild card and is due to face 2005 runner-up Ivo Karlovic in the first round.

Roddick and Hewitt will team up for doubles for the first time.
