On Friday, June 23, World No. 11 Karen Khachanov confirmed his withdrawal from this year’s Wimbledon due to a stress fracture suffered during the French Open earlier this month. Khachanov will thus miss the grass-court Grand Slam for the second year in a row, after missing the Championships last year owing to a Russian and Belarussian player ban.

Khachanov, ranked 11 in the world, reached the quarter-finals of Roland Garros, where he took a set off Novak Djokovic before falling to the Serbian, who went on to win the title.
The 27-year-old Russian was one of the most in-form players at Grand Slams in the previous year, reaching the semi-finals of both the US Open and the Australian Open.

Last year, he was forced to miss the competition because the organising body barred Russian and Belarussian competitors from competing. His most recent participation came in the quarterfinals in 2021.

The Championship is all set to begin on July 3rd, 2023.
