Wimbledon men’s seedings: How it works, current tennis rankings, Wimbledon 2024 points

The next Grand Slam on the ATP calendar is fast approaching and the world’s biggest tennis stars are preparing for Wimbledon.

Carlos Alcaraz wants to defend his title, but faces strong competition from greats such as Novak Djokovic, Jannik Sinner and Alexander Zverev.

The championship at the All England Club is arguably the most prestigious and traditional tennis tournament in the world, and seeded players often gain a big advantage in the tournament.

The sports news examines how the seeding works at Wimbledon and how the ATP world rankings can change as a result.

How does seeding work at Wimbledon?

In the men’s singles tournament at Wimbledon, the best 32 players in the ATP world rankings are seeded, which means they will face an unseeded player or a wildcard participant in the first round of the competition.

This affects not only the opening round, but also all subsequent rounds, as higher-seeded players tend to play against lower-seeded or unseeded players.

This means, hypothetically, that the player ranked 33rd – and in this case an unseeded player – could play against a player ranked 100th or higher in the first round, while the players in the top 32 do not play each other in the first round.

Current ATP world rankings

In the latest version of the ATP world rankings, Italian Jannik Sinner is in first place, closely followed by Alexander Zverev and Carlos Alcaraz.

Novak Djokovic moved up to second place ahead of Alcaraz in the latest ranking update. It should be noted that while the rankings are usually updated weekly, they are not updated at all for major Grand Slams and tournaments.
