   For Sloane Stephens and Sam Querrey, Wimbledon marked milestones last year.
   In her first tournament after undergoing foot surgery in January 2017, Stephens lost in the first round to fellow American Alison Riske. Two months later, Stephens won the U.S. Open for her first Grand Slam title.
   Stephens reached her second major final this month, losing to Simona Halep in the French Open on June 9 after leading by a set and a service break.
   Querrey, meanwhile, advanced to the 2017 Wimbledon semifinals, which remains his best showing in a major tournament.
   Stephens, a 25-year-old Fresno product, will return to Wimbledon as the fourth seed and Querrey, a 30-year-old San Francisco native, as the 11th seed.
   The seedings for the tournament, Monday through July 15, were announced today, and the draw will be held Friday.
   Stephens heads five seeded American women. The others are No. 9 Venus Williams, No. 10 Madison Keys, No. 16 CoCo Vandeweghe and No. 25 Serena Williams. The only other seeded U.S. men are No. 9 John Isner and No. 19 Jack Sock.
