It is the most traditional tournament in the tennis calendar and at the same time the third Grand Slam in the calendar year. We are of course talking about Wimbledon, which will take place again in 2022 (June 27 – July 10) after the traditional tennis tournament fell victim to the corona pandemic two years ago.
But this year there is also a special feature, because no world ranking points will be awarded for the participants. The reason for this lies in the unclear decision as to whether Russian and Belarusian athletes should be excluded or not.
And yet it is important for all participants to enter a Grand Slam victory in their CV.

Wimbledon 2022: Are there still tickets?
Tickets for Wimbledon are in great demand. This year, however, there was no public raffle (ballot) of tickets. Viewers who were successful in the 2020 sales phase were initially offered the same tickets. Two years ago, the tennis tournament fell victim to the corona pandemic.
But there will be ticket resale and matchday queuing again at Wimbledon 2022. Since 2008 there has been a single queue with around 500 seats for each court. To gain access to the tournament courts, fans usually have to queue overnight. General access to the site allows access to the outdoor seating and is possible without queuing overnight.
