Wimbledon 2022: player rankings, predictions
As always, the Wimbledon 2022 tournament attracts the best tennis players in the world.
A good surprise is the return of Serena Williams. The seven-time Wimbledon champion has not played a competitive singles match in a year due to a torn hamstring at Wimbledon last year. Her ranking fell to 1,204th place, but if she won this year’s tournament, it would be her 24th Grand Slam title.
The No. 1 women’s seed belongs to Iga Swiatek after winning Roland Garros earlier this month. Anett Kontaveit, Ons Jabeur and Paula Badosa are currently behind Swiatek in the standings.
In the men’s division, Novak Djokovic holds the No. 1 seed, followed by this year’s men’s French Open champion, Rafael Nadal. Matteo Berrettini, Carlos Alcaraz and Felix Auger Aliassime are other contenders with a decent chance of lifting the trophy.
Notable absences include Russian players Daniil Medvedev (men’s world No. 1) and Aryna Sabalenka (women’s world No. 6). Wimbledon announced in April that no Russian players would be allowed to compete in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
