Carlos Alcaraz shines in flour, he does great on hard courts, but turf is not a good surface for him. Although he joined Wimbledon ranked fifth, he is not a favorite. The 19-year-old Spaniard has big ambitions, but was on the verge of leaving London after his first round match with Jan-Lennard Struve.
The incredibly talented Alcaraz had big problems in the confrontation with the more experienced and limited German on German turf. At one point, he had four points of defeat, but in the end, after four and a quarter hours of fierce fighting, he won 4:6, 7:5, 4:6, 7:6 (3), 6:4.
John Isner also fought a battle with the Five Hundred that he had to catch up with. With a number of 20, the American, after more than three hours of battle, managed to defeat 6: 7 (6), 7: 6 (3), 4: 6, 6: 3, 7: 5 qualifier Enzo Couacaud. An efficient serve helped him win – he sent out 53 aces and only broke once.

Casper Rudd, the third seed, won smoothly. He defeated Roland Garros finalist Albert Ramos 7:6(1), 7:6(9), 6:2 and scored his first Wimbledon win of his career. He will fight for the next win with Ugo Humbert, who in five sets turns out to be better than Thomas Martin Echeveri.
Alejandro Davidovic, defender Hubert Hurkacz in the first round, will face Jerry Vesely, who eliminated Federico Correa, in the 1/32 final. Ranked No. 30. Tommy Ball will play Adrian Mannarino in the second round. The French won 6:3, 7:6 (0), 4:6, 4:6, 6:4 with qualifier Max Purcell. In turn, another player from the elimination, Maximilian Marterer, defeated Jazz Biden and will advance to the final 1/16 in front of Francis Tiafoe, with a score of “23”.
