That link says

Ladies' Seeding
The seeding order follows the WTA ranking list, except where in the opinion of the committee, a change is necessary to produce a balanced draw.
Checking against the WTA rankings, the seeds match the rankings for Seeds #1-9. Oddly Serena is #10 in the WTA rankings yet seeded 11th at Wimbledon

IMO, any player that would get a benefit of doubt for seeding, it would be Serena. And she is seeded worse than her WTA ranking
