Wimbledon enters the quarter-finals of both the men's and women's singles tournaments with excitement ramping up and the matches getting bigger as seeded stars collide.

In the men's game, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are on course for a showdown in the final this weekend, but they're far from the only contenders in the hunt.

Nick Kyrgios has been the star attraction at SW19 so far in 2022 and will be determined to reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career. Cam Norrie is the last of the British players at Wimbledon and has already achieved his personal best performance in a major by reaching this stage.

Players will be spurred on by pride and prestige alone with no ranking points on offer following a spat between the All England Club and ATP and WTA Tour officials over the exclusion of Russian and Belarusian competitors.

World No.1 Djokovic entered the tournament as favourite in the absence of No.2 Daniil Medvedev, who is one of the banned players. Nadal recovered in time for Wimbledon and will be determined to continue his 100 per cent record in Grand Slams this year.

In the women's game, reigning 2021 champion Ash Barty has since retired from the sport, meaning a cluster of stars will aim to make the most of her absence going into this year's tournament at SW19.

Ensuring that you won't miss a single moment is Sue Barker and her team of BBC Wimbledon presenters, pundits and commentators. And in big news, it's Barker's final year in the role before she downs tools to enjoy retirement.

Where is Wimbledon 2022 held?

The tournament is held at the iconic All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, south west of London.

Wimbledon has been held at the All England Club since 1877, making it the oldest tennis tournament in the world.

The All England Club boasts lush outdoor lawn courts, making it the only Grand Slam tennis tournament to be held on grass.

The main matches are held in the 14,979 capacity Centre Court, which had a retractable roof added in 2009.

The nearby Aorangi Park has become colloquially known as Henman Hill and Murray Mound after the famous British players, and fans traditionally watch the matches there while eating strawberries and cream.
