It is the most traditional tournament in the tennis calendar and at the same time the third Grand Slam in the calendar year. We are, of course, talking about Wimbledon, which takes place again in 2022 (June 27 – July 10), after the traditional tennis tournament fell victim to the corona pandemic two years ago.
But this year there is also a special feature, because no world ranking points are given to the participants. The reason for this lies in the unclear decision on whether Russian and Belarusian athletes should be excluded or not.
And yet, it is important for all participants to write a Grand Slam victory into their resume.
