Wimbledon 2022 marks 100 years of Centre Court, and the centenary is looking like a battle between the Gen Zers and the Millennials. 

Here's our rundown of one's to watch at The Championships this year...


The current women’s number 1, IGA SWIATEK (aged 21) will be looking to add another trophy to her cabinet. Whilst SERENA WILLIAMS, who has been playing Wimbledon since before Swatiek was born has announced on her Instagram that she will be returning to Wimbledon this year. Wimbledon 2022 will be Serena’s chance to remind everyone why people call her the G.O.A.T.

It’s important we don’t forget about COCO GAUFF and SIMONA HALEP. Despite coming second to Swatiek at this year’s Roland Garros, Gauff remains a force to be reckoned with. Last year, the 2019 Wimbledon champion Halep, considered retiring due to both mental and physical health reasons. We’re sure many fans are happy she got her fire back, and are excited to see how she performs on Centre Court this year. 


While old timer and the current men’s world number 1 NOVAK DJOKOVIC will be stepping onto the Wimbledon grass to defend his 2021 Wimbledon win, Wimbledon’s 3rd seed and fresh-faced CASPER RUUD will be gunning for the title. 

In 2003 RAFAEL NADAL made his debut at Wimbledon. That same year, CARLOS ALCARAZ was born!  Nadal will be vying to turn his record-breaking 22 Grand Slam wins to 23. Will Alcaraz put a stop to this and be crowned King of Centre Court 2022?
