In July 2020, the All England Club made the important but important decision to discontinue the ranking formats they used on grass courts, and that the standings would follow the standings of the men’s and women’s singles draw rounds.

“Due to the quality of competition, recreation and modern turf pitches, after detailed discussion with groups of players, the AELTC has determined that the grass seed formula used since 2002 has run its course,” the club said in 2020. The seeds in the men’s singles draw will be based solely on ranking. There will be no change in the way seeds are distributed in the women’s singles draw. ยป

Thus, Alcaraz, who returned to the top of the ATP rankings after winning his first title on grass last week, is in first place ahead of defending champion Djokovic, who will seek to win his fifth consecutive Wimbledon title. The same goes for Swiatek, who hasn’t made it past the fourth round in three matches in SW19 – 2019 (1R), 2021 (4R), 2022 (3R).
