None of the nominees reached the required 75% of the vote, which is combined by journalists, historians, Hall of Famers and experts from the tennis industry, in addition to a percentage of points awarded by a fan vote.

The six candidates will repeat in the 2023 vote. Fortunately, the aforementioned athletes can be considered for a maximum of three years.

The Hall of Fame will host an exaltation ceremony on June 16 for Lleyton Hewitt, the Australian who was elected in 2021 but was unable to attend last year's event due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
