Wimbledon 2023, the third Grand Slam of the year, will be held in London from Monday, July 3, 2023. The draw for this prestigious Grand Slam was announced on Friday. In the men's singles category, Spain's Carlos Alcaraz has got the top seed, while Serbia's Novak Djokovic will land as the second seed. In women's singles, Iga Swiatek of Poland has been given the first seed.
Defending champion Novak Djokovic is unsurprisingly the big favorite on the men's side of the draw. The Serbian is well on course for the calendar Grand Slam after coming out on top in Melbourne and Paris so far this year, and will move alongside Roger Federer with eight Wimbledon titles should he enjoy yet more success at SW19.
It's Carlos Alcaraz who arrives as world number one and top seed though, while last year's runner-up Nick Kyrgios arrives with concerns over his fitness and Andy Murray looks to bring his form on the Challenger Tour to the biggest stage.
Iga Swiatek sits at the top of the women's rankings, though still has something to prove on grass. The 22-year-old, now a four-time Grand Slam champion, is yet to make it beyond the fourth round at Wimbledon and pulled out of the Bad Homburg Open on Friday due to illness. Elena Rybakina returns 12 months on looking to defend her crown, though she too has been battling illness, so it could be Aryna Sabalenka, who reached the last-four at Wimbledon in her last appearance in 2021, who arrives in London with most confidence.
Wimbledon starts on Monday, July 3, 2022, and will once again run for 14 consecutive days due to play taking place on Middle Sunday. The action at SW19 will come to a close on Sunday, July 16.
You can watch Wimbledon across all 14 days on BBC One, BBC Two, and their digital platforms. Play will start at 11:00 BST on outside courts, 13:00 on Court One, and 13:30 on Centre Court from 3-14 July. Meanwhile, matches will start at 11:00 on Court One and 14:00 on Centre Court on finals weekend.
Play will begin from 11am on outside courts, 1pm on No.1 Court and 1.30pm on Centre.
