Wimbledon draw LIVE: Latest updates as Emma Raducanu, Andy Murray and Serena Williams learn fate

‘Why not?’ – Hurkacz on chances to win Wimbledon after Halle victory

Follow live updates from the Wimbledon draw as Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray discover their first-round matches and the top seeds learn their potential routes to the final at the Championships.

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.

Wimbledon 2022: How the draw works

First of all, the 32 seeded players are removed from the hat. The remaining unseeded players are then randomly allocated a spot in the draw, leaving 32 spots.

The seeded players are then drawn into the bracket but certain seeds are kept apart. For example, seeds 1-4 cannot meet until the semi-finals so they are placed in different quarters of the draw, while seeds 1-8 cannot meet until the quarter-finals.

The rest is a bit of a free for all. Simple enough.
