On paper, Djokovic should have a simple victory against the Korean but you never know when it comes to tennis.
Top seed Novak Djokovic will begin his 2022 Wimbledon campaign against South Korea’s Kwon Soon-woo. The Serbian had won The Championships in 2021 and although he has failed to win a Grand Slam competition so far this season, defending the Wimbledon crown would be a terrific achievement. In his career, the Serbian has won the competition six times, only behind Roger Federer (8) and Pete Sampras (7) in the all time winners list in the Open era. Kwon, on the other hand, has not had much competitive grass court action since the French Open. He had taken part in the Surbiton Trophy and the S-Hertogenbosch and was knocked out in the round of 32 on both occasions.
On paper, Djokovic should have a simple victory against the Korean but you never know when it comes to tennis. The top seed himself will be underprepared coming into the tournament due to a lack of grass court action. Djokovic will run into trouble when he is up against higher-seeded players but in the first round, he is almost certain to record a victory and advance to the second.
Djokovic and Kwon 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.
