Follow live reaction from the Wimbledon draw, where Emma Raducanu will face Alison Van Uytvanck in the first round and Andy Murray was paired with James Duckworth after avoiding a seeded opponent.

Raducanu, who was seeded 10th for the draw on what will be her first appearance at Wimbledon since winning the US Open, has been handed a tough first assignment against the Belgian Van Uytvanck. Raducanu won their only previous meeting in Chicago last year but Van Uytvanck is an established top-50 player, currently ranked at 46 in the world.

Murray received a kinder draw. Australian Duckworth, who is ranked 77 in the world, has yet to win a match on the ATP Tour this season. Two-time Wimbledon champion Murray has won both previous meetings with Duckworth and could face American John Isner in the second round.

Defending men’s champion Novak Djokovic will open the tournament against Soonwoo Kwon on Monday while Rafael Nadal, on the other half of the draw, will begin against Francisco Cerundolo. The top seed in the women’s draw Iga Swiatek will open against qualifier Jana Fett.

Raducanu handed tough Wimbledon draw as Murray faces Duckworth

12:08 , Jamie Braidwood

Emma Raducanu will face Alison Van Uytvanck in the first round at Wimbledon in what was a far from straight forward draw for the US Open champion, while Andy Murray will face James Duckworth in the opening round after avoiding a seeded opponent.

Remarkably, all 17 British players in the main draw avoided a seeded player, even if Raducanu was handed one of the tougher opening assignments on what is the 19-year-old’s first appearance back at Wimbledon since last September’s US Open triumph.

Raducanu, who was seeded 10th for the draw, will face Belgian Van Uytvanck, who is an established top-50 player, currently ranked at 46 in the world, and reached the fourth round at the Championships in 2018.

Two-time Wimbledon champion Murray, who is expected to be fit for the first round on Monday, received a kinder opening match against world number 77 Duckworth. Murray has won both previous meetings with the Australian, who is yet to win a match on tour this year, and could face American John Isner in the second round.

Elsewhere, Serena Williams was drawn against the unseeded Harmony Tan on what will be her first tournament appearance since last year’s Wimbledon. Williams began her comeback by playing in the Eastbourne doubles with Ons Jabeur this week and avoided the top seeds after receiving a wildcard for the main draw.

Wimbledon 2022

10:43 , Jamie Braidwood

Again, a couple of interesting ties there but not too many fireworks. Certainly good draws for Murray, Draper, Norrie and Evans.

Jannik Sinner vs Stan Wawrinka and Felix-Auger Aliassime vs Maxime Cressy are a couple of interesting ones.

Britain’s Paul Jubb getting Nick Kyrgios is a good one too.

Certainly nothing for Nadal and Djokovic to be worried about in the first week.

Wimbledon 2022

10:40 , Jamie Braidwood

That’s a good first-round draw for Murray. Australian Duckworth has hardly been lighting it up on tour this season. In fact, he’s lost all six of his matches according to the ATP and was beaten by world No 227 Paul Jubb at Queen’s last week.

If Murray advances he could face John Isner in the second round.

Wimbledon 2022

10:29 , Jamie Braidwood

And here come the unseeded players... Here are the picks

Novak Djokovic vs Soonwoo Kwon

Jannik Sinner vs Stan Wawrinka

Andy Murray vs James Duckworth

Carlos Alcaraz vs Jan-Lennard Struff

Cameron Norrie vs Pablo Andujar

Ryan Peniston vs Henri Laaksonen

Jack Draper vs Zizou Bergs

Now, time for the men’s draw. Projected quarter-finals, based on seeding.

Novak Djokovic vs Carlos Alcaraz

Casper Ruud vs Hubert Hurkacz

Matteo Berrettini vs Stefanos Tsitsipas

Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Rafael Nadal

Big news there is Berrettini, who really should be seeded third, falls in Nadal’s side of the draw.

Wimbledon 2022

10:15 , Jamie Braidwood

That’s a tough first round draw for Emma Raducanu. Alison Van Uytvanck is an established top-50 player who has reached the fourth round at Wimbledon.

Wimbledon 2022

10:06 , Jamie Braidwood

Now here come the unseeded players... Here are the picks

Iga Swiatek vs Jana Fett (Q)

Sonay Kartal v Dana Kovinic

Harriet Dart vs Rebeka Masarova

Simona Halep vs Karolina Muchova

Serena Williams vs Harmony Tan

Katie Boulter vs Clara Burel

Katie Swan vs Marta Kostyuk

Emma Raducanu vs Alison van Uytvanck

Heather Watson vs Tamara Korpatsch

Jodie Burrage vs Lesia Tsurenko

Wimbledon 2022

10:05 , Jamie Braidwood

Raducanu, seeded 10th, is drawn in the bottom half of the draw, therefore avoiding top seed Swiatek. She is in the same section as Ons Jabeur.

Projected round of 16:

Swiatek vs Krejcikova

Muguruza vs Pegula

Badosa vs Halep

Gauff vs Pliskova

Collins vs Raducanu

Kerber vs Jabeur

Sakkari vs Ostapenko

Bencic vs Kontaveit

Wimbledon 2022: Ceremony about to begin

09:59 , Jamie Braidwood

Here we go! Watch out for Murray and Williams, we could be set for a huge first-round match.

Wimbledon 2022: How the draw works

09:56 , Jamie Braidwood

First of all, the 32 seeded players are removed from the hat. The remaining unseeded players are then randomly allocated a spot in the draw, leaving 32 spots.

The seeded players are then drawn into the bracket but certain seeds are kept apart. For example, seeds 1-4 cannot meet until the semi-finals so are placed in different quarters of the draw, while seeds 1-8 cannot meet until the quarter-finals.

The rest is a bit of a free for all. Simple enough.

A two-time grand slam finalist while still a teenager, Andrea Jaeger is often cited as one of tennis’s early examples of burnout. She tells Tom Kershaw how sexual harassment and subsequent threats drove her away.

Exclusive: Former Wimbledon finalist sexually harassed ‘at least 30 times’ by WTA staff member

09:45 , Tom Kershaw

Former Wimbledon finalist Andrea Jaeger says she was sexually harassed “at least 30 times” in the women’s locker room during her career by a WTA staff member.

In an interview with The Independent, Jaeger, who turned professional at just 14 years old and peaked at No 2 in the world rankings, also alleged that she was unknowingly served alcohol at a post-tournament party before a different WTA employee drove her home and attempted to kiss her. She was 16 at the time.

Jaeger, 57, said that when she attempted to make a complaint to someone at the WTA, she was threatened and told not to raise the issue again.

The WTA have been approached for comment.

Wimbledon 2022: Murray issues injury update

09:38 , Jamie Braidwood

Andy Murray is hopeful to be fully fit for Wimbledon after his preparations for the tournament were disrupted by a strained abdominal injury. Murray was forced to withdraw from the Queen’s Club championships last week but has been pictured serving at the All England Club, in what is a positive sign ahead of the tournament.

The positives are I’ve been able to practise but there are certain shots I’ve not been able to practise, so that has obviously disrupted my preparations,” Murray said earlier this week. “The injury is healing but still not perfect.

“I’ve been practising for the past three or four days and have been practising well. But unfortunately in matches you can’t just not hit certain shots. In the next couple of days hopefully I’ll get the chance to test that and hopefully it will be fine.”

Wimbledon 2022: Raducanu on course for Wimbledon

09:34

Emma Raducanu is making good progress in her recovery from injury and will take her place in the Wimbledon draw today.

The 19-year-old managed only seven games of her first grass-court tournament of the season in Nottingham a fortnight ago before pulling out after suffering a side strain.

Raducanu was not ready to return for this week’s WTA tournament in Eastbourne but has been practising at the All England Club this week and it is understood she is on course to be fit for the Championships.

The British number one’s team are not taking anything for granted, though, and will monitor her carefully over the next couple of days before a final decision is made.

Raducanu, who made headlines with her debut run to the fourth round at Wimbledon last summer before going on to win the US Open, is the 10th seed in the women’s singles.

Wimbledon 2022: Dart the pick of British wildcards

09:24 , Jamie Braidwood

It’s been a brilliant week for Britain’s players at both Nottingham, Birmingham and Eastbourne, with Harriet Dart, Katie Boulter and Jodie Burrage all achieving career-best victories in the women’s tournaments.

Dart is set to break into the world’s top 100 after beating Camilla Giorgi at Nottingham before reaching her first WTA quarter-final. She then repeated the trick at Eastbourne after battling through experienced players in Madison Brengle, Jil Teichmann and Marta Kostyuk.

Boulter has also enjoyed an impressive few weeks and her best win came against former World No 1 Karolina Pliskova at Eastbourne, where Burrage knocked off the tournament’s top seed Paula Badosa.

Hopes are high ahead of Wimbledon but much depends on the draw.

Wimbledon 2022: Draper likens ‘fiery’ personality to Murray

09:13 , Jamie Braidwood

Jack Draper is an interesting one and the Briton has come a long way since taking the opening set off Novak Djokovic in last year’s first round.

The 20-year-old is through to his first ATP semi-final at Eastbourne after following his big win over World No 15 Diego Schwartzman with a 6-3 6-3 win over countryman Ryan Peniston yesterday.

With a huge frame and powerful hitting combined with agility and speed around the court, Draper is suited to grass and is coming into form at a good time ahead of Wimbledon.

Draper’s aggression is an important part of his game, too, and has drawn comparisons to Andy Murray, not least from Draper himself. “That’s the unique thing about tennis: everyone has a different mentality. Mine’s a bit more fiery and therefore it’s tough to be calm the whole time,” Draper said.

“If I was calm the whole time, I probably wouldn’t get the best out of myself because that’s just not who I am. Andy’s got a similar personality, I guess. He’s someone who loves competing, wants to win the whole time, and sometimes that brings out a little bit of anger here and there.

Wimbledon 2022: Women’s ones to watch

09:08 , Jamie Braidwood

And the same applies for the women’s draw, where Serena Williams is a name none of the top seeds want to land in their section...

Sloane Stephens (40)

Karolina Muchova (79)

Harriet Dart (111)

WC - Katie Boulter (140)

WC - Serena Williams (246)

Wimbledon 2022: Men’s ones to watch

08:59 , Jamie Braidwood

Unseeded players can draw anyone once their names are pulled out of the hat, and there are some dangerous first-round ties on the cards in the men’s draw. That said, there are 128 players in the main draw so the odds are still pretty high...

Andy Murray (69)

Nick Kyrgios (76)

Jack Draper keeps British hopes alive at Eastbourne after reaching semi-finals

08:29 , Jack Rathborn

Jack Draper became the last British player standing in the singles draws at Eastbourne after battling past compatriot Ryan Peniston to reach the semi-finals.

The 20-year-old tournament debutant won the final five games in a row, including breaking his opponent three times in succession, to wrap up a 6-3, 6-3 win at the Rothesay International.

Draper will now face French-born American Maxime Cressy in what will be his first ATP Tour semi-final.

Peniston, who was also a quarter-finalist at Queen’s, Nottingham and Surbiton this summer, joined fellow Britons Cameron Norrie and Harriet Dart in exiting the competition at the quarter-final stage on Thursday.
