At the Bad Homburg Open, Anisimova did quite well to reach the quarter-finals but was defeated at that stage by Paula Badosa.
US tennis player Amanda Anisimova will kick off her 2022 Wimbledon campaign against China’s Wang Xinyu. Anisimova is seeded 20th in the competition and will be looking to do well at the grass Grand Slam. So far, she has been decent on the surface. After she was beaten at the Phillippe-Chatrier last month by Leylah Annie Fernandez, the American took part in one grass court tournament. At the Bad Homburg Open, Anisimova did quite well to reach the quarter-finals but was defeated at that stage by Paula Badosa.
On the other hand, Wang Xinyu will have to quickly find her form if she is to make an impact at The Championships. The Chinese tennis player has not recorded any exceptional performances on grass so far this season. After the French Open, Wang participated in the Nottingham Open where she was beaten in the first round by Ajla Tomljanovic. She then fell short in the round of 16 of the Bad Homburg Open against Coco Gauff.
Ansimova and Wang are scheduled to face each other on Tuesday, June 28 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 the second day of the first round as the likes of Swiatek, Badosa, Williams, Gauff, Krejcikova and others will be in action.
