Wimbledon schedule 2022: Full draws, TV coverage, channels & more
Both Novak Djokovic, looking to defend his Wimbledon crown, and Serena Williams, who has been out for quite some time, have returned.
The third and final Grand Slam tournament of the year is about to begin, and the top players in the world (or at least the ones who can afford to go there) will soon descend upon the All England Club. From June 27 until July 10, 2022, Wimbledon will once again be the center of tennis attention as the world’s best competition at the annual Championships at SW19.
For the first time since 1998, the year before the eight-time winner made his debut, Roger Federer will not be participating in the tournament. While recovering from knee surgery, he hasn’t played since the quarterfinals last year. Similarly, seven-time women’s champion Williams has been absent from the circuit since she retired in the first round at Wimbledon last year. She returned for doubles at the East Bourne warm-up event, though.
Williams will likely receive the earliest attention, although she is not a heavy favorite to win. Iga Swiatek, currently ranked first in the world, has won 35 consecutive matches and cruised to the French Open title in early June. This will be only her third appearance in the main draw, and she hopes to do better than her fourth-round departure in 2018.
Djokovic, the defending champion, is favored in the men’s draw as he seeks redemption for his heartbreaking quarterfinal loss to Rafael Nadal in the finals of Roland Garros. It’s fair to say that the two-time champion Spaniard isn’t viewed as much of a danger on grass, but he should still be taken seriously.
Here’s how to catch all the action at Wimbledon 2022:

Wimbledon 2022 betting odds
Given that the top two seeds in the world, Daniil Medvedev (ranked first) and Alexander Zverev (ranked second), are both out with injuries, Novak Djokovic has an even better chance of winning the tournament.
Bookmakers have made 20-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic the heavy favorite to win Wimbledon again. His closest competition is likely to come from runner-up Matteo Berrettini, who won the opening set against Djokovic in the 2021 final before falling in four sets.
Because of his recent success at the Queen’s tournament in London, Berrettini is currently priced lower than Rafael Nadal, who needs a win to keep pace for the calendar Grand Slam but has been struggling with a recurring foot problem.
This year’s Madrid Open and Miami Open were both won by the Spanish phenom Carlos Alcaraz. As a result of his brilliant 2021 Wimbledon debut, in which he advanced to the second round, the then-19-year-old is now regarded by some as a possible successor to Rafael Nadal.
Bookmakers rated 11th-seeded American Taylor Fritz as the 14th-most likely victor, so his fans would have financial and sporting reason to cheer if the +6510 long shot produced a massive shock.
Iga Swiatek is the clear favorite in the women’s draw and, at age 21, is the youngest top seed at Wimbledon in 11 years. She is on a 35-match winning streak and has won her previous six events.
The odds on the third favorite, American prodigy Coco Gauff, are far longer than those on Swiatek and Wimbledon 2021 quarterfinalist Ons Jabeur. Gauff is three years younger than Swiatek and won/bested only four games against her in the French Open final.
When considering the odds, it is impossible to ignore the outsiders among the favorites. Seven-time champion Williams was seeded after a lengthy layoff that caused her world ranking to drop to 1,204, but Simona Halep prevailed in the 2019 final. (As of June 24: Odds via Sports Interaction.)
