Andy Murray has been confirmed as one of the initial recipients of a Wimbledon wild card.
The two-time champion, who played just his third ATP singles match of the year at Queen's Club on Tuesday, is ranked down at 124, which is outside the cut-off for direct qualification.
Murray's last appearance in singles at the All England Club was in 2017, when his hip problems first surfaced, although he did play men's doubles and mixed doubles two years ago.
Murray will be joined by fellow British players Katie Boulter, Jodie Burrage, Harriet Dart, Samantha Murray Sharan, Francesca Jones, Liam Broady, Jay Clarke and 19-year-old Jack Draper, who won his maiden ATP Tour match at Queen's on Monday.
Five-time champion Venus Williams and Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz have also been given main draw wild cards, while 16 other British players have been given wild cards into qualifying.
Paul Jubb, who earned a lot of attention two years ago when he was given a wild card after winning the US college title, misses out this year through injury.
Chief executive Sally Bolton revealed that, as things stand, the All England Club is expecting Naomi Osaka to compete in the tournament, which begins on 28 June.
Bolton said: "We've reached out to her team, we haven't spoken to Naomi herself. At this point in time she's entered into the Championships and we haven't received confirmation that she won't compete."
Osaka has been taking time away from the court since withdrawing from the French Open for mental health reasons amid a furore around her refusal to fulfil media duties.
Tournament director Jamie Baker added: "I had the conversation with her team. It's absolutely clear that we're here, we're completely open for any discussions when they want to have that.
"Hopefully it goes without saying that we want the best players competing here no matter what.
"We treat every single player with a tremendous amount of care. That's one of the main reasons for me and my role.
"We've been building those relationships so there's a constant, ongoing dialogue and we will just continue to behave in this way."
