WIMBLEDON, England — Ivan Lendl and Steffi Graf were seeded No. 1 today for next week's Wimbledon tennis championships, as Americans dominated both men's and women's rankings.
Lendl, a Czechoslovak living in Greenwich, Conn., has won every Grand Slam tournament except Wimbledon. Graf, from West Germany, won her first Wimbledon last year en route to the Grand Slam sweep.
Defending men's champion Stefan Edberg of Sweden, the French Open runner-up, was seeded second in the men's draw, just ahead of two-time champion Boris Becker of West Germany.
U.S. players took seven of the 16 seeds in both singles fields for the grass-court Grand Slam tournament scheduled to run from next Monday through July 9, headed by fifth-seeded John McEnroe among the men and second-seeded Martina Navratilova among the women.
