Since 2021, the seedings for both the men’s and women’s singles have been based on the world rankings.

Wimbledon’s decision to bar Russian and Belarusian players has had serious repercussions, with the ATP and WTA deciding to withhold ranking points from the tournament.

The draw is on Friday and the tournament begins on Monday.

  3. Rafa is just looking so good especially these days. An added inspiration can definitely impact his game. I love that he smiles a lot lately.

  4. I’ll only be watching WC for Rafa. I had to smile at those two being seeds 1 and 2, after everything that’s happened to them. Hoping for photos of Rafa shopping in Wimbledon Village, a tradition I’ve missed so much, and of him lifting the trophy. The latter seems unlikely but anything is possible and that’s how Rafa rolls. Vamos!

  5. Good news. If Rafa is ok with his foot i think he will have all chances in the tournament❤️

    • Hi Mimi, I think you said you were going to Wimby. If so, I just read something about a rail strike in England. Details were sketchy so I don’t want to spread misinformation. Just thought I’d let you know.

      If you are not going to Wimby, you can ignore the first paragraph. LOL

      Yes, Rafa is looking good for Wimby. I am totally excited for him. I don’t think we can tell much by an exhibition but you never know. Wishing him smooth sailing.🤗

      • Hi Margo,

        Good luck to Rafa.🍀

    • Wow Mimi what a lucky person you are to see our hero live…. Vamos Rafa for number 23 and number 3.
