The third Grand Slam event of the year is upon us as the Wimbledon main draw gets underway Monday.

This iteration of the Championships will be unique, as Russians and Belarusians weren’t allowed to play in the draw due to Wimbledon’s ruling.

That means players such as Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev, Aryna Sabalenka and Daria Kasatkina aren’t able to compete this year.

In response, the ATP and WTA Tour governing bodies elected to remove ranking points from the tournament. While there is a boatload of prize money and prestige that comes with Wimbledon, this will be a very odd situation.

With the first round set to get going, here is how our tennis analysts are playing the matches.

Matches are listed in chronological order. Match times are subject to change and many will be played after the projected start time. Read here for advice on watching Wimbledon.
