Wimbledon Is Back: Catch All The Action At SW19

The biggest grass court tennis tournament in the world is back, with 1st round matches starting today. Here are some things to look out for at this year’s championships:

  • Will Novak Djokovic be able to regain his 2021 title?
  • Will Rafael Nadal claim another record and make it 23 slam wins?
  • How will Serena Williams fare on her Wimbledon comeback?
  • Will Iga Swiatek continue her dominance on the women’s tour by winning the title?

Here are some of LagateRaho.com’s top picks for the first round:

  1. Nikoloz Basilashvili vs Lukas Rosol

Lukas Rosol enjoyed a good run in qualifying for the main draw by winning his three matches without dropping a single set. Nikoloz Basilashvili has had an up and down start to his grass season, picking up a big win against Andre Rublev in Halle, but losing out to Mats Rosenkranz in straight sets in Mallorca. 

We expect a win for the Georgian, but we think the big-serving Rosol will be good enough for at least a set. 

Back Rosol to win a set @1.50 

  1. Alejandro Davidovich Fokina vs Hubert Hurkacz

The Pole Hubert Hurkacz has been in the form of his life in the lead-up to the 2022 Wimbledon championships winning the Halle title by beating world #1 Daniil Medvedev in the final, that too convincingly. The Spaniard Davidovich Fokina has gone 2-2 in this year’s grass season and will need to up his game to get anything from today’s match. 

The pair have a 2-2 H2H record with Hurkacz taking the last two matches, albeit after dropping a set in both matchups. This is their first meeting on grass courts. 

Back Davidovich Fokina to win a set @1.83 

  1. Casper Ruud vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas

The Norwegian Ruud has climbed to new heights in the ATP rankings to #6 after his stellar runner-up run at Roland Garros this year. His only match on grass this year ended in disappointment after defeat to Ryan Peniston in straight sets. The wiley Spainyard Ramos-Vinolas hs a 4-1 H2H record vs Ruud and we expect him to take a set and make it tough for the Norwegian #1.

Back Ramos-Vinolas to win a set @ 1.72

  1. Jannik Sinner vs Stan Wawrinka

The 20 year old Italian’s lack of match practice and nagging fitness problems give the experienced Swiss maestro Wawrinka the chance of picking up a set or more in this matchup.

Back Wawrinka to win a set @1.44 

Will there be any massive upsets in the first round of Wimbledon 2022?
