Former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt is one of 13 players to receive a wild card entry to this year's tournament, organizers said Tuesday.

Former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt is one of 13 players to receive a wild card entry to this year's tournament, organizers said Tuesday.

Australian Hewitt beat David Nalbandian in the 2002 final, but the 31-year-old is now ranked 176th in the world.

The list also includes 34-year-old Tommy Haas of Germany, who was a Wimbledon semifinalist in 2009.

Belgian world No. 109 David Goffin, who reached the quarterfinals of his first ever French Open before losing to Roger Federer, also gets a wild card, as does surprise French Open women's quarterfinalist Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan.

Former world No. 16 Virginie Razzano, from France is also included on the list.

Wimbledon traditionally grants entries to British players who would not otherwise qualify, and this year is no different.

British men Jamie Baker, Oliver Golding, Josh Goodall and James Ward all benefit, as do Naomi Broady, Johanna Konta, Laura Robson and Heather Watson in the women's draw.

Wimbledon takes place from 25 June to 8 July.
