Two of the three Italians remaining in the tournament take the field today. Jannik against the Swede around 4 pm, Elizabeth against Begu. Djokovic takes on Kokkinakis
Without Matteo Berrettini, who retired for positivity at Covid, the greatest exponent of Italian tennis at Wimbledon is Jannik Sinner, seeded number 10 on the men’s draw. Unlike Berrettini, Sinner is not a specialist on grass but who knows that the victory against Stan Wawrinka in the first round – the first in his career on this surface – cannot represent a turning point. To have a first confirmation of this, one has to wait shortly: Jannik will be on the field on Wednesday afternoon, against the Swede Mikael Ymer, number 88 in the world. The match between the two will be the third of the day on field 3: it will start at 12 Italian, Sinner will probably not be on the field before 16/17.
The big ones
Jannik will be the only Italian on the field in the men’s draw, just as Elisabetta Cocciaretto – after the derby won against Martina Trevisan – will be the only one among women: Ancora’s 2001 class will also play in the third match, on field 15, against Irina Begu. The two could therefore play simultaneously. As for the two main fields, the protagonists on the Center Court starting from 2.30 pm will be Djokovic (against Kokkinakis), Raducanu (against Garcia) and Murray, engaged in the difficult match with Isner; on field 1 – from 2 pm – Kontaveit-Niemeier, Norrie-Munar and Sakkari-Tomova are scheduled.
The other fields
The menu of camp 2 is also interesting, with the day starting at 12 Italian: in the field Ruud (against Humbert), Kerber (against Linette) and Alcaraz, who after the victory in five sets against Struff will face the Dutch Griekspoor . While after Sinner, on field 3, there will be Ons Jabeur, seeded number 3 of the women’s draw, engaged against the Polish Katarzyna Kawa.
