Welcome to Luxury Tennis retreats Wimbledon preview 2022. Wimbledon is the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world. First held in 1877, it is the trophy that every tennis player dreams of holding aloft.
It is one of the most controversial build-ups in the tournaments history. The tournaments decision to ban Russian and Belarusian Players has robbed the tournament of some of the worlds best players. And in one of the first time in the time in Wimbledon's history, the worlds number one and two player in the on the Men’s side will not be present.
Novak has six Wimbledon titles to his name. And he and is this years tournament as a strong favourite. With a US open ban pending, he will be determined to take home the title. There are question marks surrounding all the other challengers. And it’s hard to see Djokovic not holding the trophy at the end of the tournament.
Djokovic’s draw looks uneventful up to the quarter-finals. In the quarter-finals Murray or or Alcaraz look like the potential matchup.
Nadal, along with Berrettini is on the other side of the draw. I see those two as he is biggest threats. Berrettini would’ve gained a lot of experience from last year. But overall I see this as Djokovic’s tournament to lose.
It’s hard to get a gauge on a Nadal’s chances. He didn’t play a lead up tournament, and he has those ongoing foot issues. But he has won the first two grand slams of the year so it’s hard to write him off. I think for him to be successful he has to get through the first week without too much time on court. If you can do that is every chance to win the tournament.
He has made a strong return from injury. No one would’ve expecting to play this well so early. He plays great on grass. If he can serve well he’s every chance of taking the title.
The ultimate wildcard. Grass is his best surface, and I think he’s being been eyeing off this tournament all year. He has a third round match up with Tsitipas, and I favour him in this match up. Krygios will be good early, it just depends on how much energy he uses in the early rounds. Not just physical energy but emotional energy. If he can get past Tsitipas , a 1/4 final matchup with Berrettini looms. I think Berrettini will pose a difficult assignment. Let’s hope he can put it all together as he has the talent to win the title.
Murray has returned the form and seems to be physically fit. He will definitely have the crowd behind him. Again it will depend on how much energy he uses in the early rounds and how his body responds.
The way the grass is now at Wimbledon Alcaraz is every chance to cause damage. His game is so solid you just can’t write him off. He is in the same quarter-final as Djokovic. I would love to see this match up and is every chance of causing an upset.
I can’t see the winner coming out of anyone but this group.
Other players to watch
He’s in the weakest part of the draw. He’s proven on grass and see him making the semifinals.
Ruud is in Hurkacz Section, and because his road to the quarter-finals is so open, I can see him making the quarters, but not going any further.
An interesting player on grass. Is the only true serve and volleyer Left on the tour. I think he has the potential to cause an upset in the first round against Auger-Allisiame
While the majority of the draw is wide open, I still see the usual suspects getting to the end of the tournament.
