A number of players were absent from this tournament for various reasons. This included five-time champion Björn Borg, who refused to play after Wimbledon officials required him to play in a qualifier tournament due to being absent from the tour injured for most of 1982; Ivan Lendl and Eliot Teltscher both withdrew citing difficulty playing on grass courts; and Argentinian players Guillermo Vilas and José Luis Clerc withdrew in protest to their country's conflict with the United Kingdom over the Falkland Islands.[3][4]
