Which British players are competing at Wimbledon 2024?

There will be a strong list of British players at Wimbledon this year in the women’s, men’s, juniors and wheelchair draws.

On the women’s side, two-time Rothesay Open Nottingham champion Katie Boulter leads the charge as she aims to better her back-to-back third rounds at SW19. Boulter reached a career-high world No.27 earlier this year after winning the biggest title in San Diego. She’ll be joined in the main draw by Harriet Dart, who made her first WTA 125 final and WTA 250 semi-final this season.

Emma Raducanu will make her comeback at Wimbledon as a wild card, alongside Rothesay Open Nottingham quarter-finalist Francesca Jones, Lily Miyazaki and Heather Watson.

On the men’s side, new British No.1 Jack Draper comes in off the back of winning his first ATP title on the grass at the Boss Open. 2022 semi-finalist Cam Norrie is set to return, as well as Dan Evans and two-time former champion Andy Murray.

There seven main draw wild cards in the men’s draw, including Liam Broady, Jan Choinski, Billy Harris, Arthur Fery, Paul Jubb, Jacob Fearnley and last year’s boys’ singles champion Henry Searle.

Main draw doubles entries are still to be confirmed.

On the wheelchair side, Alfie Hewett will be gunning for his first men’s singles title and will compete with Gordon Reid to retain the doubles, with Andy Lapthorne and Lucy Shuker competing in the quad and women’s draws respectively.

Who is playing at Wimbledon 2024?

The women’s singles draw at Wimbledon this year is stacked with former champions, Grand Slam winners and those hoping to make their breakthrough on the biggest stage.

World No.1 Iga Swiatek heads to SW19 off the back of her fourth Roland Garros in five years. The 2023 WTA Tour Finals winner has already lifted five titles this year and will be looking to go beyond the quarter-final for the first time at Wimbledon.

Her closest competitors this season have been Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka, 2022 Wimbledon title-winner Elena Rybakina and the reigning US Open victor Coco Gauff. The WTA’s ‘Big Four’ will no doubt be worthy favourites for the trophy this year.

Keep an eye out though for current title-holder and world No.6 Markéta Vondroušová, who last year became the first unseeded player to lift the women’s singles trophy. World No.10 Ons Jabeur has also reached the Wimbledon final in each of the last two seasons and will be hoping to make it third time lucky.

On the men’s side, the big question is whether seven-time champion Novak Djokovic will be back and at full strength after sustaining an injury at Roland Garros.

Djokovic of course lost last year’s final against 21-year-old Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, who recently became the youngest men’s player to win a Grand Slam on all three surfaces at the French Open.

Italian Jannik Sinner has been the in-form player of the season after winning his first major at the Australian Open in January, while Roland Garros runner-up Alexander Zverev and finalist in Melbourne, Daniil Medvedev hope to make a breakthrough on the grass.

World No.7 Alex de Minaur has already won a title on grass this year in s’Hertogenbosch and 33-year-old Grigor Dimitrov, who is having a standout campaign so far, is always a tough player to beat on the surface.
