The 2022 Wimbledon’s opening round features the 18th seed Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria taking on Steve Johnson of the United States. Dimitrov has a 5-2 advantage after seven games. In 2015, one of the matchups took place at Wimbledon, and the Bulgarian easily prevailed. Prior to Wimbledon, Dimitrov only participated in the Queen’s Club competition in London. He defeated Cameron Norrie in the opening round, which was a big victory, but lost the following match to Botic van de Zandschulp. Johnson had mixed results in his matches at Queen’s and Eastbourne.
Given that he currently has a 5-2 head-to-head advantage, Dimitrov should be considered the favourite in this game. Because he is a stronger player overall, there are higher odds that he will prevail in this match once more. Johnson is a pretty competent player who still has the ability to win some games, but not when up against some of the top competitors in the competition.
Grigor Dimitrov vs Steve Johnson 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 are 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.
