Wimbledon draw: Venus Williams finds Elina Svitolina! Elina Rybakina defends title

In these hours the Wimbeldon women's singles draw was also drawn for the long-awaited third Grand Slam of the year. Iga Swiatek, Aryna Sabalenka and the defending champion Elena Rybakina are the three big favorites while, never like this year, they don't worry about any outsiders.

Big surprise in the first round for Venus Williams, who finds a tough opponent: Elina Svitolina. Iga could face the winner between Jessica Pegula and Carolina Garcia in the semifinals while Rybakina and Aryna Sabalenka could face each other.

Particularly unfortunate was Sabalenka who, after her first round with Udvardy, could face Camila Giorgi in the second round, eventual round of 16 with the Roland Garros finalist Karolina Muchova. The Polish world champion no.1 will open the tournament against the Chinese Zhu, and awaits the winner between Martina Trevisan and the Spanish Sara Sorribes Tormo in the second round.

On her side of the draw, a super match between Petra Martic and the very young Linda Fruhrvirtova with the winner facing number one in the first round.

Possible 4th round against one between Belinda Bencic and the Polish Magda Linette, therefore a Polish derby is not excluded.

Intriguing match between Venus Williams and Elina Svitolina. American derby Cori Gauff facing the qualifier and former Grand Slam champion Sofia Kenin, who has been in crisis lately. Camila Giorgi will face Gracheva in the first round and possibly Aryna Sabalenka in the second round.

The Estonian Anett Kontaveit, in her last career tournament, will face Lucrezia Stefanini in the first round and possibly Bouzkova in the second round. In the first round matches, another great challenge between Katie Boulter and Daria Saville, while Maria Sakkari faces Marta Kostiuk (with the winner she could face Paula Badosa), while the reigning champion Elena Rybakina will debut against Rogers.

Here is the Wimbledon women's draw:
