WIMBLEDON, England—After the first round of Wimbledon 2022, neither Venus nor Serena Williams were in the women’s singles draw. For the first time since the 1990s, Roger Federer was not in the men’s draw.

World-ranked No. 1 and No. 2 players Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev are also not here. (The latter is injured. The former is from Russia, a nation that is not welcome at these championships due to the country’s invasion of Ukraine, prompting the ATP and WTA Tours to withdraw ranking points from the event. Iga Swiatek , the top-ranked, did not last the week, as his 37-match winning streak was snapped in the third round. Coco Gauff and Emma Raducanu are also out.
