The 2011 Wimbledon Championships promise to be full of drama, just like they were last year.

As is common during Wimbledon, the seeding doesn't match the ATP World Tour rankings. The top five do match up this year; but then the remaining seeds follow the discretion of the Wimbledon powers that be.

Due to Tomáš Berdych’s surprise finals appearance in 2010, he is the first player to break rank and is seeded No. 6. He swapped places with David Ferrer of Spain, who lost in the fourth round in last year's Wimbledon.

Then there's three-time Gentlemen’s Singles finalist, Andy Roddick. He jumps ahead of Gaël Monfils and Mardy Fish to be seeded No. 8. Monfils and Fish round out the top 10 seeds.

While there aren’t many grass-court tune-up tournaments, they still can say a lot about how Wimbledon will play out.

Last week, No. 4-ranked Andy Murray took home the singles title at the AEGON Championships in Great Britain, and Philipp Kohlschreiber took home the singles title at the Gerry Weber Open in Germany.

As mentioned before, Murray is seeded No. 4 and Kohlschreiber isn’t seeded at all.

Who are the top contenders to take home this year's Wimbledon title? Will it be a former Grand Slam champion, or will a first-time winner emerge?

Let’s take a look at the top 10 best chances to win the hardware.
