Every series has its end. Andy Murray has won the previous eight games against John Isner. But on Wednesday, in their ninth match, he suffered his first defeat, and it was in his temple – at Wimbledon Central. In the second round duel of the 2022 tournament, the British surrendered to the Americans 4:6, 6:7 (4), 7:6 (3), 4:6 after more than three hours of battle.

Isner bombed Murray with a serve on Wednesday – he sent 36 aces, scored 98 of 129 with his own pass and couldn’t break. And as a bonus, American No. 20 seed Jannick Sener will face the Championship “Ten” in the 1/16 Finals.

Carlos Alcaraz entered a previously unknown territory. The 19-year-old Spaniard defeated Talon Grixpur 6:4, 7:6 (0), 6:3 and was promoted to the third round of Wimbledon for the first time in his career. In this fifth-ranked stage, Morgan will play Oscar Otti with the number “32”.
