When and where can you see the event in India, the UK and the US?
This year’s third Grand Slam tournament, Wimbledon Championships 2022, is ready to begin next Monday at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. As players from all over the world lock their horns for one of the coveted Tennis trophies, players will not be awarded ranking points from ATP and WTA during the tournament. In particular, Wimbledon 2022 was deprived of ranking points due to their ban on players from Russia and Belarus.
This means that world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev misses the tournament, while world No. 3 Novak Djokovic enters as the top seed. Other notable absentees from the tournament will be Andrey Rublev and Aryna Sabalenka. At the same time, the 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer will also skip the tournament as he has not yet recovered from the injury.
However, the upcoming edition of the grass court major will feature the single comeback of 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. Australian Open 2022 and French Open 2022 champion Rafael Nadal will take part in the tournament for the first time since 2019, in an attempt to extend his record by winning the most Grand Slam trophies.
