Wimbledon 2022 was the 135th edition of this Grand Slam tennis tournament which was played on the courts of the All England Club in London, the capital of the United Kingdom, from June 27 to July 10, 2022. It was the third Grand Slam in the tennis season. Novak Djokovic and Ashley Barty defended their championship titles in individual competitions. Djokovic successfully defended his title after defeating Nico Kyrios in the final. In this way, he won the 21st Grand Slam title in his career. Barty was unable to defend her title as she retired in March 2022 from playing tennis professionally. The winner in the women's singles competition was Jelena Rybakina, who was defeated by Uns Jabir in the final. Traditionally, the tournament held competitions in nine different competitions: five for seniors and four for juniors. Also, competitions were held in six competitions between tennis players in wheelchairs and in four competitions between veterans. In this year's tournament, the organizers of Wimbledon banned the participation of Russian and Belarusian tennis players due to the beginning of Russia's military invasion of Ukraine earlier this year. In response to this move, the WTA, ATP and ITF have decided that participants in this year's Wimbledon will not receive points on the ATP and WTA lists. On 3rd July, a ceremony was held to mark the centenary of the Central Court of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, which was attended by more than twenty former singles champions.
