As the competition kicks off, will Novak Djokovic win his fifth consecutive Wimbledon and 24th major in his career? Or will it be any of the hungry young guns led by Carlos Alcaraz?

The question will be answered pretty soon, as the third Grand Slam tournament of the calendar will get started on July 3 at the All England Club tennis facilities, in London. 

Djokovic is the favorite to win, as he is looking to lift the trophy for the eighth time, which proves he enjoys playing on grass courts.

Moreover, Djokovic, who recently lost his world No. 1 spot to Alcaraz again, won the Australian Open and the French Open this year, which make it almost impossible not to see him as the main contender to go all the way in the tournament.

However, even with Djokovic winning the most important competitions this year, Alcaraz will be the first seed in Wimbledon, as seedings for the singles tournament at Wimbledon are based on world rankings.  Alcaraz is back at the top spot after winning Queen’s, given Djokovic’s break since winning Roland Garros.

Behind the second-seeded Djokovic, there are a few young players that will be aiming at the latter rounds and, why not, the trophy.

Daniil Medvedev will be the third seed, followed by Casper Ruud, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Holger Rune. Andrey Rublev, a recent finalist in Halle, will be the seventh-seeded player, while another ATP force, Jannik Sinner, makes the top eight. American players Taylor Fritz and Frances Tiafoe, whose tennis game can make lots of damage on grass courts, are the last two Top 10 seeds.
