The draw has been completed for 2022 Wimbledon which will take place between 27 June - 10 July at the All England Lawn & Tennis Club albeit without many of the big names involved on the Men's Side.
Roger Federer has been out since last year's tournament, while World No.1 Daniil Medvedev is among the banned players with World No.2 Alexander Zverev not there due to injury.
This leaves a field which features defending champion, Novak Djokovic who will massively drop in the rankings due to ranking points being stripped. But he will start his campaign against Soonwoo Kwon in London.
Rafael Nadal despite battling foot trouble will also be one of the leading lights when he faces Francisco Cerundolo as he chases a further Calendar Slam in a tournament he has not played in two years.
Carlos Alcaraz despite not playing any grass court tournaments in the lead up due to an injury incurred in Madrid which saw him have heavy strapping during defeat to Frances Tiafoe at the Hurlingham exhibition will head in as one of the favourites. He starts against Jan-Lennard Struff.
Other ties include home hero, Andy Murray who after a run to the final at the BOSS Open Weissenhof is facing a race against time for fitness when he faces James Duckworth with John Isner potentially awaiting in Round Two.
Jannik Sinner faces Stan Wawrinka in Round One, Halle winner Hubert Hurkacz faces Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the opening round.
A Next Gen clash sees Ilkley winner, Zizou Bergs who defeated Casper Ruud this week in a grass exhibition play Jack Draper, British ace Paul Jubb will aim to upset the odds on home soil as he faces Nick Kyrgios. Taylor Fritz will face Lorenzo Musetti while Felix Auger-Aliassime may have his hands full in facing serve and volley ace Maxime Cressy.
