Murray and Raducanu participation in the grass court event remains a question mark, with both suffering setbacks in the build-up. Murray looked to be fully prepared for his home Grand Slam tournament, after playing some superb tennis in the recent Stuttgart Open to reach the final. As has often been the case recently though, the Brit suffered an injury setback during his final defeat to Matteo Berrettini. Similarly Raducanu’s Wimbledon prep has also been hampered by injury, after the teenage star was forced to pull out of her round one clash at this month’s Nottingham Open against Viktorija Golubic after just seven games, after sustaining a side injury.

Whether the two British stars compete at their homecoming Grand Slam event remains to be seen, but if they do the pair – and their fans – now know who they will be up against. With the famous SW19 tournament growing ever closer the draw for the opening round of fixtures has been decided. On the men’s side of the draw, Murray will take on Australia’s James Duckworth to kick off his hunt for a third Wimbledon title.

Other notable draws on the 19-year-old’s side of the tournament includes seven-time singles champion Serena Williams making her return against Harmony Tan, whilst world No. 1 Iga Swiatek will take on qualifier Jana Fett. Back to the men’s singles draw, and defending champion Novak Djokovic will kick off his week at SW19 with a clash against Kwon Soon-woo, whilst Spanish hotshot Carlos Alcaraz will take on Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff. Alcaraz’s fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal will kick off his hunt for the 2022 Grand Slam – after clinching this year’s Australian and French Open titles – with an opening round match against Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina. Like Murray and Raducanu, Nadal himself as he suffered from fitness issues heading into this year’s event.
