Djokovic tops Wimbledon rating without Russian Medvedev

The organizers of Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam in tennis, have released a rating of players that did not include Russian and Belarusian players after they were excluded from the tournament due to the situation in Ukraine.

The reigning champion, Serb Novak Djokovic, ranked third in the world, took charge of the Wimbledon tennis championship, whose matches will officially begin next Monday, in the absence of Russia’s Daniil Medvedev, world number one.

World No. 4 Spaniard Rafael Nadal will be the second seed at Wimbledon in the absence of World No. 2 German Alexander Zverev due to an ankle injury.

Novak Djokovic, 35, is aiming to crown his seventh Wimbledon title and win his 21st Grand Slam to close the gap to one title between him and record holder Rafael Nadal, a two-time Wimbledon champion.

Roger Federer, who turns 41 in August, will miss this year’s Wimbledon tournament as he recovers from knee surgery.
