How does the Tournament draw work?

The Wimbledon Tournament is a knockout. The process that determines which players will meet is deliberately biased to prevent the world's top players being drawn against each other too early in the Tournament.

For example, to prevent the No.1 and No. 2 seeds meeting before the final:

  • The No.1 seed is entered on the first row
  • The No. 2 seed is entered on the last (128th) row

Then, to prevent the No.1 , No. 2 , No. 3 and No. 4 seeds meeting before the semi-finals:

  • The No. 3 and No. 4 seeds are drawn
  • The 1st player drawn is entered on row 33
  • The 2nd plate drawn is entered on row 96

Continuing the process, seeds 5 to 8 are drawn and entered on rows 32, 64, 65, and 97, in the order drawn. Four further groups of seeded players are then drawn and interspersed on the draw sheet.

Once all 32 seeded players are entered on the draw-sheet, the 96 unseeded players are then randomly selected.

Wimbledon testimonal

It was an easy process

"I thought I'd send you a short note to thank you for dealing so efficiently with my Wimbledon debentures in 2021. It was an easy process to sell the days I didn't want to Green and Purple and payment was made promptly. I look forward to dealing with you again in the future."
