2022 Wimbledon: Kyrgios is nearly perfect.

  • LONDON – Nick Kyrgios played a nearly flawless second round match to upset 26th-seeded Filip Krajinovic. Kyrgios hit 50 winners and committed just 10 unforced errors in a sub-90-minute match.

    “I just wanted to remind everyone that I’m pretty good,” Kyrgios said in his post-match interview.

    Like Kyrgios, Frances TiafoeAlexander Bublik, and Steve Johnson all advanced in straight sets. The trio are one of a few players on the men’s side who have yet to drop a set in the tournament.

    Caroline Garcia’s first appearance on Centre Court at Wimbledon proved to be a success after she defeated crowd favorite Emma Raducanu in straight sets. Garcia played dominating tennis, coming to the net 19 times, winning 79% of those points.

    Former champion Angelique Kerber recorded her 120th win at a major with another straight-set victory. Kerber currently has an impressive streak of 51-straight Grand Slam appearances.

    Jessica PegulaKaja JuvanTatjana Maria, Tiafoe, and Bublik are seeking their first second-week appearance at SW19. Tim Van Rijthoven and Marie Bouzkova have already recorded their career-best at this year’s Wimbledon.
