‘Why not?’ – Hurkacz on chances to win Wimbledon after Halle victory
The absence of Daniil Medvedev due to the ban on players from Russia and Belarus and the injury to Alexander Zverev means six-time champion Novak Djokovic is the top seed for the men’s draw, with Rafael Nadal to be separated on the other half as a second seed.
Iga Swiatek is the top seed in the women’s draw and favorite for the title after winning the French Open and extending her 34-match winning streak, with Raducanu seeded 10th as she returns to Wimbledon following her US Open victory.
There is potential for heavyweight first-round matches on both sides, with two-time Wimbledon winner Murray and seven-time champion Serena Williams among the unseeded players for the Championships and able to be drawn against anyone in the field.
Follow live updates from the All England Club as the tournament draws are made.
Again, a couple of interesting ties there but not too many fireworks. Certainly good draws for Murray, Draper, Norrie and Evans.
Jannik Sinner vs Stan Wawrinka and Felix-Auger Aliassime vs Maxime Cressy are a couple of interesting ones.
Britain’s Paul Jubb getting Nick Kyrgios is a good one too.
Certainly nothing for Nadal and Djokovic to be worried about in the first week.

That’s a good first-round draw for Murray. Australian Duckworth has hardly been lighting it up on tour this season. In fact, he’s lost all six of his matches according to the ATP and was beaten by world No 227 Paul Jubb at Queen’s last week.
If Murray advances he could face John Isner in the second round.

Now, time for the men’s draw. Projected quarter-finals, based on seeding.
Novak Djokovic vs Carlos Alcaraz
Casper Ruud vs Hubert Hurkacz
Matteo Berrettini vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Rafael Nadal
Big news there is Berrettini, who really should be seeded third, falls in Nadal’s side of the draw.
Jamie Braidwood24 June 2022 10:23
That’s a tough first round draw for Emma Raducanu. Alison Van Uytvanck is an established top-50 player who has reached the fourth round at Wimbledon.
Jamie Braidwood24 June 2022 10:15
Now here come the unseeded players … Here are the picks
Iga Swiatek vs Jana Fett (Q)
Sonay Kartal v Dana Kovinic
Harriet Dart vs Rebeka Masarova
Simona Halep vs Karolina Muchova
Serena Williams vs Harmony Tan
Katie Boulter vs Clara Burel
Katie Swan vs Marta Kostyuk
Emma Raducanu vs Alison van Uytvanck

Jodie Burrage vs Lesia Tsurenko
Jamie Braidwood24 June 2022 10:06
Raducanu, seeded 10th, is drawn in the bottom half of the draw, therefore avoiding top seed Swiatek. She is in the same section as Ons Jabeur.
Jamie Braidwood24 June 2022 10:05
So, projected quarter-finals:
Iga Swiatek vs Jessica Pegula
Paula Badosa vs Karolina Pliskova
Danielle Collins vs Ons Jabeur
Maria Sakkari vs Anett Kontaveit
