Follow the Men’s and Women’s Singles draw, results and latest schedule of play from the 2021 Wimbledon Championships here.

The 134th edition of the Grand Slam show-piece takes place at the All England Lawn Tennis Club from June 28 to July 11.

The tournament returns in 2021 following an enforced hiatus last year due to the global health crisis.

Reigning Men’s Singles champion Novak Djokovic is bidding to claim his sixth Wimbledon title, having beaten rival Roger Federer in the 2019 final.

Djokovic returns to Wimbledon on the back of his French Open success at Roland Garros a fortnight ago, taking his tally of Grand Slams to 19.

No player has won more Wimbledon titles in the open era than eight-time champion Federer, and the 39-year-old is looking to roll back the years and put his recent injury woes behind him.

Two-time champion Andy Murray makes his Wimbledon return for the first time since 2017, having had a lengthy lay-off through injury, and the Scot has been given a wildcard entry into the main draw.

Eight-time champion Roger Federer has been placed in the bottom half of the draw and will potentially have to overcome Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev if he wishes to reach a 13th Wimbledon final.

Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas are seeded two and three respectively as they vie to claim their first Grand Slam title, while 2020 US Open finalist Alexander Zverev is seeded number four.

Serena Williams is out in search of her eighth Women’s Singles title at Wimbledon, with her most recent triumph coming five years ago.

World number one Ashleigh Barty is aiming to go one better than her runner-up spot here in 2013, while Aryna Sabalenka and Elina Svitolina are seeded two and three respectively.

Reigning Women’s champion Simona Halep has pulled out of Wimbledon due to a calf injury, joining the likes of Naomi Osaka, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem in missing this year’s Championships.

North Londoner Dart will head over the Thames to SW19 with a point to prove after several near misses during the pre-Wimbledon grass court season – Dart exited events in Nottingham, Birmingham and Eastbourne all in close three-set contests. The 24-year-old is ranked as British No.3 in singles, and has beaten fellow Brits Heather Watson and Emma Raducanu in WTA Tour matches this year. Making her third appearance in the main draw at Wimbledon, the LTA Pro-Scholarship Programe player has previously reached the third round in 2019 and also reached the semi-finals of the mixed doubles with her fellow Brit Jay Clarke, in 2018.

Singles – Round 1: vs. Elise Mertens (Belgium, world #16 – seeded 13)
Doubles – Round 1: with Heather Watson (GBR) vs. Kaia Kanepi (EST) & Shuai Zhang (CHN)

Now the British No. 4, the 20 year old from Bradford will be playing in her second Grand Slam having won through qualifying to earn a place in the main draw at the Australian Open in January. The LTA Pro-Scholarship Programme player started her tennis journey as a five year old at an activity camp at Heaton Tennis Club as a way of keeping busy during the summer holidays. Jones was born with a rare congenital condition called Ectrodactyly Ectodermal Dysplasia (or EEC syndrome), meaning she only has three fingers and a thumb on each hand, three toes on one foot and four toes on the other – and as a result struggled with her balance growing up and had difficulties gripping her racket properly.

Events: Men’s Wheelchair Singles (world ranking 2), Men’s Wheelchair Doubles (world ranking 1)

LTA Support: Elite Wheelchair

There are not too many things 23 year old Hewett has yet to do in tennis, but winning the Wimbledon singles title is one of them. He became the youngest ever World No.1 in the sport back in 2018, but has yet to appear in a singles final at SW19 and so will be aiming change that – subject to being fit having withdrawn from the cinch Championships with an injury. If he does win, the Norfolk player will add yet another trophy to his five previous Grand Slam singles titles from Roland Garros and the US Open. That’s not to say Hewett does not know what winning at Wimbledon is like – together with doubles partner and fellow Brit Gordon Reid, Hewett is a three-time Wimbledon winner in the doubles event. Though they lost the final last time out in 2019, the duo have gone on to become Great Britain’s most successful ever Grand Slam doubles partnership, with their win at Roland Garros this year taking them to 11 titles together and surpassing the long standing record of the Doherty brothers from the early 20th century. Hewett, who was recently named joint LTA men’s player of the year for 2020 alongside Dan Evans at the LTA Awards, was also a silver medalist in both singles and doubles at Rio 2016, and will be part of the ParalympicsGB team at Tokyo 2020.

LTA Support: Elite Wheelchair

Londoner Lapthorne saw his long-held dream of competing at his home town Grand Slam come true in 2019 when the Quad wheelchair event was added for the first time, following an exhibition doubles match the previous year. Wimbledon is a uniquely special place for Lapthorne, as it was there that his desire to become a player was sparked as a 10 year old – he ended up in a lift alongside Venus and Serena Williams, and after a brief chat and photos he has said that ever since that day he always wanted to play there. Now 30, the intervening years have seen Lapthorne become one of the leading quad wheelchair players in the world, with two Grand Slam singles titles, 10 Grand Slam doubles trophies and two silver and one bronze Paralympic medals to his name – with the potential for more in Tokyo. Though that list of success includes the Wimbledon doubles crown from 2019, adding the singles title to that this year would undoubtedly be extra special for him.
