Ever since she became the US Open champion, Raducanu has not been able to make a mark in world tennis.
British tennis sensation Emma Raducanu will be hoping to take the 2022 Wimbledon by storm right from the off. She will face Belgian tennis player Alison Van Uytvanck in her first round match. Ever since she became the US Open champion, Raducanu has not been able to make a mark in world tennis. At the French Open, the Brit could only go as far as the second round where she was beaten by Aliaksandra Sasnovich. Following that, she participated in the Nottingham Open but had to withdraw against Viktorija Golubic due to an injury. The 19-year-old will be looking to make a mark at The Championships this season.
Her opponent, Van Uytvanck has been on a decent run of form since the French Open. She won two ITF competitions at Gaiba and Great Britain but failed to make an impact at Hertogenbosch and Bad Homburg. She did reach the quarter-final of the former where Aryna Sabalenka beat her. At Bad Homburg, the Belgian was ousted in the very first round by Amanda Anisimova.
Raducanu and Van Uytvanck 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 Swiatek, Badosa, Sakkari, Raducanu, Halep and others will be in action.
