There will be no ranking points at Wimbledon. Russians and Belarusians are banned from the tournament. That’s why ATP and WTA have decided to do so. 
The highest-ranked Canadian, Felix Auger-Aliassime said:
“It’s still a prestigious tournament to win. All players will do their best.
There will be a lot of supporters and money. Players will find the motivation to give the best of themselves.
Auger-Aliassime is now seeding No. 6 due to the absence of No. 1 Daniil Medvedev and No. 8 Andrey Rublev (the ban).
Alexander Zverev No. 2, won’t take part in the tournament too of his injury to Ronald Garros.
The 21-year-old will first face American Maxime Cressy. Maxime has reached the final in Eastbourne.
Cressy No. 6 in the world is a rare serve-and-volley player. He wants to challenge Auger-Aliassime at the net at the slightest opportunity.
The Ontarian Denis Shapovalov’s (seed 13th) first rival is the Frenchman Arthur Rinderknecht.
The latter beat him in February in Doha on a hard surface.
Shapovalov reached the semifinals at Wimbledon last year, losing to Novak Djokovic.
Auger-Aliassime’s grass season has been pretty good so far. He reached the semifinals in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and the quarter-finals in Halle.
Shapovalov has lost from the start in his last five tournaments.
“I’m in the game, but I’m not making a breakthrough,” Shapovalov said. If I went looking for a game or two, things could click (on the grass).
On the women’s side, Quebec’s Leylah Fernandez is absent. She is treating a fractured foot suffered at Roland Garros earlier this month.
Bianca Andreescu arrives at Wimbledon after reaching the final in Bad Homburg, Germany.
The 56th-ranked Ontarian will face U.S. qualifier Emina Bektas on Tuesday.
A year ago, Andreescu lost in the first round of Wimbledon to France’s Alize Cornet.
Rebecca Marino of Vancouver returns to the All England Club for the first time since 2011.

After suffering a few injuries, she is doing well and knocking on the doors of the top 100.
The 31-year-old will face Katarzyna Kawa of Poland on Monday.
