   Dmitry Tursunov, a Russian veteran based in the Sacramento suburb of Granite Bay, received the 32nd and last men's seeding at Wimbledon today.
   The 31-year-old Moscow native also is ranked No. 32 in the world.
   The men's and women's draws will be conducted Friday, and play is scheduled for Monday through July 6.
   Tursunov, meanwhile, defaulted his second-round match to Dutchman Thiemo de Bakker in Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, with a left foot injury. Tursunov, the 2011 champion, has a long history of injuries but might have been cautious this time to ensure he'll be ready for Wimbledon.
   Tursunov's best Grand Slam singles results have come at Wimbledon, where he reached the fourth round in 2005 and 2006. However, he is 1-5 there in the past five years.
   See below for a list of all men's and women's seeds in singles and doubles.
   Wimbledon qualifying -- Former Stanford star Nicole Gibbs moved within one victory of her first main-draw berth at Wimbledon, defeating Carina Witthoeft of Germany 6-4, 6-4 in the second round of qualifying. Gibbs had knocked off ninth-seeded Nadiia Kichenok of Ukraine in the first round on Tuesday.
   Gibbs will face fellow American Victoria Duval, seeded 15th, on Thursday in the final round. Duval coasted past Misa Eguchi of Japan 6-2, 6-2.
   Duval is ranked No. 115 and Gibbs No. 152, both career highs.
   Duval, 18, is playing at Wimbledon for the first time. She made headlines last August at the U.S. Open by stunning 11th seed and 2011 champion Samantha Stosur in the first round as a qualifier. Duval then lost to Daniela Hantuchova.
   Earlier last summer, the eighth-seeded Duval lost in the first round of the $50,000 Sacramento Challenger to eventual champion Mayo Hibi in a matchup of 17-year-olds. 
   Gibbs, 21, became the fifth woman in history and fourth from Stanford to win back-to-back NCAA singles titles (2012 and 2013) and led the Cardinal to its 17th NCAA team championship last year. She then turned professional, forgoing her senior season, and lost in the opening round of qualifying at Wimbledon in her first appearance there.
