Players competing at Wimbledon 2023

Carlos Alcaraz is the top seed in the gentlemen’s singles draw at Wimbledon for the first time in his career, following winning his first grass court title at Queen’s Club.

Closely following the Spaniard is Novak Djokovic, who has won the last four editions of The Championships and will look to equal Roger Federer with an eighth Wimbledon crown this year.

The only other former champion in the draw is Andy Murray, who looks set to narrowly miss out on a seeded spot, with Rafael Nadal absent from the event due to injury.

Men’s main draw wildcards have been awarded to 2022 Wimbledon quarter-finalist David Goffin, Ilkley finalist Sebastian Ofner, young French star Arthur Fils, and British hopes Liam Broady, Ryan Peniston, Jan Choinski, Arthur Fery and George Loffhagen.

The women’s draw is headlined once again by Iga Swiatek, who is yet to surpass the fourth round at Wimbledon.

She will face tough competition from 2021 Wimbledon semi-finalist Aryna Sabalenka and reigning champion Elena Rybakina, however the latter appears to be struggling with illness and injury after withdrawing from the WTA 500 event in Eastbourne.

The draw also sees the return of other former champions Petra Kvitova and Venus Williams, who was awarded a wildcard.

Alongside Williams, the other women’s main draw wildcards were awarded to Elina Svitolina and British stars Katie Boulter, Jodie Burrage, Harriet Dart, Katie Swan, Heather Watson and Sonay Kartal.

Last year’s winners of Wimbledon 

In 2022 Novak Djokovic reigned supreme on Centre Court once again, following his victory over Nick Kyrgios in the showpiece final.

In the ladies’ singles draw there was a new face taking to the spotlight, as Elena Rybakina ended Ons Jabeur’s hopes of becoming 2022 Wimbledon champion in a three set battle.
