Carlos Alcaraz has won two ATP 1000 titles already this season, namely the Miami Open and the Madrid Open.
The most talked about teenager in tennis today, Carlos Alcaraz, will be in action on the first day of the 2022 Wimbledon against German tennis player Jan-Lennard Struff. Alcaraz has won two ATP 1000 titles already this season, namely the Miami Open and the Madrid Open. The Spaniard also made it through to the quarter-final of the French Open, eventually losing to Alexander Zverev. The 19-year-old has been tipped to go a long way this year at The Championships. He will start his Wimbledon campaign against someone who has not exactly had the best time playing on grass recently.
Jan-Lennard Struff did not take part in the clay season in 2022. He played the Miami Open (hard courts) earlier this year and was out of the game for a while before he played the Stuttgart Open (grass) earlier this month. The German was beaten in the round of 16 by Lorenzo Sonego at Stuttgart. Struff was ousted at Halle in the round of 32 and failed to get past the qualifying stage at Mallorca.
Alcaraz and Struff are scheduled to face each other on Monday, June 27 in the first round of the 2022 Championships. The timing of the match has not been decided yet. The Championships is scheduled to begin on June 27 and go on until July 10. There are a number of exciting matches on opening day as the likes of Djokovic, Sinner, Murray, Norrie and Alcaraz will be in action.
128 players enter The Championships’ main draw every year, both for the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Singles categories. These players go through a series of elimination matches before only one victor remains. Overall, there are seven rounds in the main draw of Wimbledon.
