Ideas on the Draw

wimbledon draw analysis

Carlos Alcaraz heads in as the highest seed, and on paper, he has a tough path to the latter phases.

His draw begins simply sufficient towards the vaccine-injured veteran Jeremy Chardy however Nicolas Jarry as a possible third-round opponent, Sascha Zverev within the fourth, and Holger Rune within the Quarterfinals are difficult propositions. Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas landed within the backside part of the highest half, with the latter going through Dominic Thiem within the first spherical.

Two grass courtroom abominations, who’ve by no means been previous the 4th Spherical at SW19, going face to face within the opening spherical, needs to be good enjoyable.

Whoever wins may face Andy Murray in spherical two, assuming he overcomes wildcard Ryan Peniston who can play a bit on grass. 

Medvedev can also be unproven on the inexperienced stuff. He’s had an abysmal run of type for the reason that French Open and, from footage I noticed, is perhaps carrying some damage.

The Russian may face Mannarino in spherical two, with the Frenchman presently enjoying nicely in Eastbourne, so it’s difficult to see him making the latter phases, however he’s all the time able to ripping up the shape e book, as we noticed earlier this 12 months.

Within the backside half, Djokovic has a snug opener towards Pedro Cachin, and his part seems pretty light-weight with no actual grass courtroom pedigree standing in his approach.

Djokovic hasn’t performed a build-up event (commonplace process for him), aside from a sole match at Hurlingham, so he may be a contact rusty early doorways, however Argentine clay courtroom specialists like Cachin and Etcheverry aren’t more likely to hassle him.

Musetti is in Novak’s quarter, and he seemed okay at Queen’s Membership final week, however this part is large open.

Rublev can also be on this half of the draw together with Kyrgios, who has barely performed, Bublik, who impressively gained Halle and Felix Auger Aliassime, who has been a non-entity this season.

Within the prime part of the underside half Casper Ruud and Jannik Sinner are the 2 prime seeds.

Ruud is allergic to grass and is unlikely to issue, and from what I’ve seen from Sinner, he can be susceptible within the early rounds as he doesn’t transfer nicely on grass.

Primarily based on the draw, it’s arduous to look previous Djokovic profitable his third slam in a row; he has extra match wins on Grass than all the present prime 20 mixed (86 vs 85). He additionally hasn’t misplaced a last at SW19 since 2013. A fairly spectacular report, you may say.
