Nadal, neither

Djokovic’s loss at Wimbledon could be joined by Rafael Nadal, who already hinted after his elimination in Paris that he was not going to risk his preparation for the Games with a double change of surface: the earth to the grass and again earth.

In the big grass, Jannik Sinner and Alcaraz will be the first two seeds so they could only meet in a hypothetical final unlike Roland Garros where they meet this Friday in the semi-finals.
