Fils, Kokkinakis Headline Wimbledon Qualifying Field

A spot in the main draw at Wimbledon is hard-earned, and this year will be no exception.

The entry list for qualifying at the upcoming grass-court major in London has been announced and includes a number of high-profile names. #NextGenATP Frenchman Arthur Fils, the big-hitting Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis and former Top 10 stars David Goffin and Lucas Pouille are among those set to compete at the Community Sport Centre Roehampton from 26-29 June.

Wimbledon debutant Fils is the highest-ranked player on the list. The 18-year-old Frenchman is at a career-high No. 63 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings after lifting his maiden tour-level trophy in Lyon last month. His more experienced countryman Pouille will also hope to build on some promising recent performances. The 29-year-old reached the second round at Roland Garros as a qualifier and has pedigree on the lawns of SW19, where he reached the quarter-finals in 2016.


The World No. 108 Kokkinakis won his first main draw match at Wimbledon in 2022 and will look to deploy his free-hitting game to good effect as he chases his seventh consecutive main draw appearance at major tournaments. Goffin competes in Wimbledon qualifying for the first time since 2011: The Belgian has reached the quarter-finals at the Championships in each of the past two years, and holds a 16-8 record at the event.

Also joining the qualifying action will be a pair of former World No. 19s, Pablo Cuevas and Hyeon Chung. South Korea’s Chung, a semi-finalist at the 2018 Australian Open, has struggled with injuries for the past three years and will be competing at a Grand Slam for the first time since he competed in qualifying at Roland Garros in 2020.
