    The Wimbledon seedings formula takes into account the rankings and grass court results. Since the Olympics were played last year at the same venue, are they gonna factor that in when determining this year's seedings? And if so, is there gonna be a possibility that Murray will be seeded first?

    Yes they count the Olympic points, but Murray will be 2nd seed.

    So I guess Djokovic is too far ahead in terms of ranking points.

    Yes mate. Formula is:

    Current RP + Grass RP won in last 12 months + 75% of the Grass RP won in the 12 months before that

    Actually I read in the BBC somewhere that it's only 75% of the best grass tournament the year before last, not all.
