2012 Olympic Games Women's Singles Event Seedings

The seedings have been announced for the 70 players who have qualified to take part in the 2012 Olympic Games Womens Singles Event.

The seedings were based on the players positions in the world ranking list issued for July 2012.

The womens singles took place from 28 July to 1 August 2012 at the Excel Arena which is the largest competition venue at the London 2012 Games.

China were the hot 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 meant that only two players per NOC were allowed in the singles event.
