Świątek in round two
Iga Świątek also wins the second set against Jana Fett. Thus, the Center Court is free for the first round game between Francisco Cerúndolo and Rafael Nadal.
Semifinals in Miami
The start of the grass season was also without great success for Cerúndolo. At the ATP 500 tournament in London he made it to the second round, but in Eastbourne it was already over in the first round against Tommy Paul. The 23-year-old got his best result this year on hard court. In Miami he made it to the semi-finals where he lost to Casper Ruud.
Great success at Grand Slam is still missing
Francisco Cerúndolo was unable to achieve good results in either Melbourne or Paris this year. The Argentine bowed out in his first match at both tournaments. Of course, with Nadal, the number 41 in the world did not draw the easiest first-round ticket at Wimbledon.
Successful year 2022
But Nadal is also playing a strong year 2022 outside of the Grand Slam tournaments. His record this year is a total of 30 wins and only three losses. Recently, however, the Spaniard was plagued by his old foot injury and missed the start of the grass season as a result. Before the start of the tournament, however, he gave positive news about his injury and is therefore at the start today.
Opportunity for Grand Slam
After winning the Australian Open and the French Open, Nadal’s next chance at a Grand Slam title starts today. If the Spaniard also wins the title in Wimbledon, he still has the chance to win all four major tournaments in one year for the first time.
Center Court soon free?
The first set between Świątek and Fett clearly went to number one from Poland. If Świątek also wins set two, the place will be free for Cerúndolo and Nadal. However, she is still a break behind.
Hello and welcome to Wimbledon 2022! Francisco Cerúndolo meets Rafael Nadal in the first round today. The match takes place on Center Court and starts right after the match between Iga Świątek and Jana Fett. Have fun reading along.
