Jack Draper is the great hope of British tennis. The 20-year-old is being created in his homeland to be the successor to Andy Murray. He has a lot of potential and he presented it on Thursday. In the second round of Wimbledon 2022, he had an excellent duel with Alex de Minaur. In the end he lost 7:5, 6:7 (0), 2:6, 3:6, but he made a great impression.

De Minaur, a favorite in the game, had to put in a lot of effort. The breakout moment was the second set, as the Australian defended himself against a serve loss, then turned the scales in his favour in breaking the tie. In the next two matches, the 23-year-old from Sydney had already gained an even greater advantage and gave his opponent just five matches.

And in the third round, seeded 19, De Minaur, who made 14 aces, six breaks and 36 goals on Thursday, will face another Briton, Liam Brody.

For the 28-year-old from Stockport, this is his first promotion to the third round of a Grand Slam event.
