2016 Olympic Games Men's Singles Event Seedings

The seedings have been announced for the 70 players who qualified to take part in the 2016 Olympic Games Men's Singles Event.

The seedings were based on the players positions in the world ranking list issued for August 2016.

The men's singles took place from Saturday 6 August to Thursday 11 August 2016 at the Riocentro (Pavilion 3).

China were the favourites to take the Gold and Silver medals, but can no longer take all three medals as they did in Beijing in 2008 due to a change in the rules which allows only two players per NOC in the singles event.
