The 2024 Wimbledon draw was released earlier today and the last two Grand Slam winners, Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner, ended up on the same top half of the draw.

That left 7-time champion Novak Djokovic in the bottom half along with Alexander Zverev among the Top 4 seeds.

Djokovic, who underwent right knee surgery less than a month ago, has been practicing all week and sounds like he’s ready for action on Tuesday.


Andy Murray is also a question mark. The 2-time winner underwent back surgery last week and still might play on Tuesday.

Top 16 seed are 1 Jannik Sinner, 2 Novak Djokovic, 3 Carlos Alcaraz, 4 Alexander Zverev, 5 Daniil Medvedev, 6 Andrey Rublev, 7 Hubert Hurkacz, 8 Casper Ruud, 9 Alex De Minaur, 10 Grigor Dimitrov, 11 Stefanos Tsitsipas, 12 Tommy Paul, 13 Taylor Fritz, 14 Ben Shelton, 15 Holger Rune, and 16 Ugo Humbert.

JANNIK SINNER QUARTER
Seeds: 1 Sinner, 5 Medvedev, 10 Dimitrov, 14 Shelton, 19 Jarry, 22 Mannarino, 27 Griekspoor, 32 Zhang
Floaters: Shapovalov, Struff, Berrettini, Kecmanovic, Wawrinka, Altmaier, Fucsovics, Garin, Shang, Monfils
Notable openers: Jannik Sinner-Yannick Hanfmann, Matteo Berrettini-Marton Fucsovics, Nicolas Jarry-Denis Shapovalov
Projected 3R matches: 1 Sinner – 27 Griekspoor, 19 Jarry – 14 Shelton, 10 Dimitrov – 22 Mannarino, 32 Zhang – 5 Medvedev
Notes: Sinner will have a tough round in his first Slam as a No. 1. He could face former finalist Matteo Berrettini with junior winner Marton Fucsovics and with Tallon Griekspoor and Ben Shelton on the horizon. Fellow semifinalist from last year Daniil Medvedev and Grigor Dimitrov could be potential.

CARLOS ALCARAZ QUARTER
Seeds: 3 Alcaraz, 8 Ruud, 12 Paul, 16 Humbert, 18 Baez, 23 Bublik, 29 Tiafoe, 31 Navone
Floaters: Coric, Bautista Agut, Sonego, Arnaldi, Fognini, Mensik
Notable openers: Carlos Alcaraz-Mark Lajal, Matteo Arnaldi-Frances Tiafoe, Sebastian Baez-Brandon Nakashima
Projected 3R matches: 3 Alcaraz – 29 Tiafoe, 18 Baez – 16 Humbert, 12 Paul – 23 Bublik, 31 Navone – 8 Ruud
Notes: The defending champion Alcaraz could face a few Americans Frances Tiafoe and then later Queen’s winner Tommy Paul. Casper Ruud and Alexander Bublik will try to play spoiler.

ALEXANDER ZVEREV QUARTER
Seeds: 4 Zverev, 6 Rublev, 11 Tsitsipas, 13 Fritz, 20 Korda, 24 Tabilo, 25 Musetti, 28 Draper
Floaters: Norrie, Davidovich Fokina, Evans, McDonald, Giron, Ruusuvuori, Rinderknech, Walton, Darderi
Notable openers: Sebastian Korda-Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, Emil Ruusuvuori-Mackenzie Mcdonald, Taylor Fritz-Christopher O’Connell, Cameron Norrie-Facundo Diaz Acosta, Roberto Carballes Baena-Alexander Zverev
Projected 3R matches: 6 Rublev – 25 Musetti, 20 Korda – 11 Tsitsipas, 13 Fritz – 24 Tabilo, 28 Draper – 4 Zverev
Notes: An opens section will likely see someone make their first Wimbledon semifinal. Zverev might be the slight favorite and then Taylor Fritz and Jack Draper who have been on good runs. Sebastian Korda has also been playing well plus Alejandro Tabilo. And Andrey Rublev will look to shake an 0-10 mark in Slam quarterfinals.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC QUARTER
Seeds: 2 Djokovic, 7 Hurkacz, 9 De Minaur, 15 Rune, 17 Auger Aliassime, 21 Khachanov, 26 Cerundolo, 30 Etcheverry
Floaters: Eubanks, Murray, Fils, Popyrin, Safiullin, Karatsev, Kokkinakis, Munar, Machac,Seyboth Wild
Notable openers: Andy Murray-Tomas Machac, Roman Safiullin-Francisco Cerundolo, Felix Auger Aliassime-Thanasi Kokkinakis, Quentin Halys-Christopher Eubanks, Aslan Karatsev-Karen Khachanov
Projected 3R matches: 7 Hurkacz – 26 Cerundolo, 17 Auger Aliassime – 9 De Minaur, 15 Rune – 21 Khachanov, 30 Etcheverry – 2 Djokovic
Notes: Djokovic needed a good draw to allow himself to work his way into the event, and he got it. He’ll face tests in the fourth round from Holger Rune or Karen Khachanov and then Hubert Hurkacz in the quarters. All eyes will also on Murray who will take on Tomas Machac. That’s if Murray can play and if does he Machac beat him in Miami.

Last year, (1) Carlos Alcaraz defeated (2) Novak Djokovic 1-6, 7-6(6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

Someone asked who would be dark horse at Wimbledon, maybe Nole, he didn’t look bad yesterday against Medvedev, though it’s a long shot:
