Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis headlines the list of wild card recipients at this year's Wimbledon. A former World No. 8 and Australian Open finalist, Baghdatis made a semi-final run at The Championships in 2006 (l. to Nadal).

British players Daniel Cox, Kyle Edmund, Daniel Evans, Daniel Smethurst and James Ward were also awarded wild cards.

Of the doubles teams making main draw appearances, wild cards include the pairing of Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins, the tandem of Evans and Ward, and brothers Ken Skupski and Neal Skupski. The 29-year-old Hutchins, currently the Aegon Championships tournament director, returned to the ATP World Tour this season after successful treatment from Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Two more singles wild cards and four other doubles wild cards berths will be announced ahead of the Championships, 23 June to 6 July.
