When Novak Djokovic was drawn against 19-year-old Brit Jack Draper at Wimbledon 2021, it was hardly to be expected that the schedule had produced a match that would worry the man who would win his third Grand Slam of the year.
As it turns out, Draper was the only player other than Matteo Berrettini in the final to beat Djokovic at the 2022 championships and win the opening set to become the only player in the tournament to take a set from the world number one.
Two-time champion Andy Murray’s opening goal also showed the draw could be dramatic: the British sporting icon was an underdog on paper against 24th-seeded Nikoloz Basilashvili but won with reasonable ease in four sets to delight home fans.
With Rafael Nadal returning and Djokovic aiming for the first major title of the year, when will we find out who plays who at Wimbledon 2022?
When is the Wimbledon 2022 draw?

Then the likes of women’s number one Iga Swiatek, tennis great Serena Williams and the men’s singles and doubles participants will find out who they’re up against and which half of the draw they’re in.
Being drawn into a half with fewer top players can prove crucial to competitors’ chances of success and allow them to avoid early clashes with seeded rivals.
