The 2021 Wimbledon Grand Slam is scheduled to get underway from June 28 and run until July 11. Meanwhile, the draw for the event was made on Friday, with defending champion Novak Djokovic and record champion Roger Federer getting to know their road.
The date comes closer for the most prestigious tennis Grand Slam, as the 2021 Wimbledon Championships is all set to get underway from June 28. Meanwhile, the draw for the same was made on Friday, as we take a look at who the top stars would be up against.
Record eight-time champion and tennis great Roger Federer of Switzerland would be bidding for his record 21st Slam title. However, he will have to go through the likes of Russia's Daniil Medvedev (Seed 2) in the quarters and Germany's Alexander Zverev (Seed 4) in the semis.
Meanwhile, defending champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia does not have an easy path either. He is likely to be up against Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas (Seed 3) or former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray of Great Britain. Notably, Djokovic beat Tsitsipas in the French Open final earlier this month.
Among the women, America's Serena Williams (Seed 6), bidding for her record 24th Slam, could clash against Germany's Angelique Kerber (Seed 25) in the third round. Meanwhile, world number one Ashleigh Barty of Australia (Seed 1) could be up against local favourite Johanna Konta (Seed 27) in the third round.
Defending champion Simona Halep has withdrawn owing to a calf injury she suffered during the Rome Masters last month.
