The 2022 Wimbledon Championships are upon us.

This year's draw was released on Friday morning for both the men and women, offering us a look into what each player could face if he or she wants to take home a Grand Slam title.

On the men's side, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal open up on opposite halves of the draw as the first and second seeds.

Djokovic and Nadal both have potentially tricky second round opponents. Djokovic could face Thanasi Kokkinakis while Nadal may have to deal with grass-court specialist Sam Querrey.

The Serbian is the favorite to win Wimbledon at -130, but Nadal is only the third-favorite at +750 at FanDuel.

Matteo Berrettini is the oddsmakers' second choice to win the event, with a +600 price. Berrettini has won two titles in the two grass events he's played this year and reached the final at Wimbledon last year.

On the women's side of the action, world No. 1 and +155 favorite Iga Swiatek opens her campaign with what should be fairly straightforward matches.

Her first seeded opponent projects to be Yulia Putintseva, the world No. 33.

Serena Williams will be playing in the event after a year off of the singles tour. Her last match came at Wimbledon in 2021, but she had to retire in the first set due to injury.

Williams got some warm up work in during the week, playing at Eastbourne in the doubles draw with Ons Jabeur.

The duo secured two wins before Jabeur had to withdraw with a knee injury.

It appears to be a very manageable draw for Williams, who could have drawn anyone being an unseeded wild card. She'll face Harmony Tan in the first round.
