From a German point of view, the disillusionment has been great in recent weeks. According to the ATP world rankings, Germany’s tennis superstar Alexander Zverev would have traveled to London as the top seeded player. The Hamburger is currently number two in the world, the Russian world number one Dannil Medvedev is not allowed to play for the two weeks in the British capital.
After the serious foot injury from the semifinals of the French Open against Rafael Nadal with a triple torn ligament, Zverev is doomed to watch in Wimbledon and has to postpone his next attempt to finally win one of the four Grand Slam tournaments.
Speaking of Nadal: The Spanish veteran will be back in Wimbledon for the first time since his semifinals in 2019. The Mallorcan has already celebrated two Grand Slam victories in Melbourne and Paris this year and will now play for his third triumph after 2008 and 2010 on the pitch.
