The Championships at Wimbledon 2012 will be held from June 25 - July 8. Can Chicago native Donald Young make his mark in a Grand Slam?

The official Wimbledon website has released the seeding and draw for both the men's and women's singles tournaments, and 22-year-old Chicago native Donald Young will face No. 26 seed Mikhail Youzhny in the opening round of the Grand Slam event. The matchup is a difficult one for Young, who doesn't have much experience against top players on grass and is coming off a disappointing result in the French Oprn, but if he can somehow take out Youzhny he would face the winner of the match between Inigo Cervantes and Flavio Cipolla in the second round.

As for other U.S. men's players, Mardy Fish and John Isner are seeded at No. 10 and No. 11, respectively. Andy Roddick is seeded No. 30 and will take on Jamie Baker in the first round. Here is a look at the top-15 seeds in gentlemen's singles for the tournament at Wimbledon in 2012:
