Wimbledon 2022 is officially underway. The All England Club is already seeing some exciting action, including the returns of Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams.

Nadal, seeded No. 2, is competing at Wimbledon for the first time in three years. He took the first two sets against Francisco Cerundolo on Tuesday, but struggled in the third and the beginning of the fourth. The veteran shook his head and won 16 of the last 19 points to earn his 306th Major win with a record of 6-4, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

On Monday, No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic was forced to four sets during his first-round match against Soonwoon Kwon. However, he still took care of business and advanced by winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Center Court. This result helped Djokovic become the only player to record at least 80 wins in all four Grand Slam events.

Earlier that day, No. 5 seed Carlos Alcaraz recovered late and cruised to a five-set victory against Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff. Meanwhile Marin Cilic, an underdog but definitely a strong dark horse, was forced to withdraw from the competition aftertesting positive for COVID-19. No. 8 seed Matteo Berrettini, the 2021 Wimbledon runner-up, also withdrew due to a positive test result.

On the women’s side, Serena Williams stepped onto the court for the first time since the 2021 Wimbledon handover. She had not played since last June when she suffered an ankle injury during her first-round match at the All England Club. Her match against Harmony Tan was close, but Tan walked away as the winner 7-5, 1-6, 7-6 (10-7) after three hours and 10 minutes on the court. Serena had to retire in the first round at the All England Club last year for her only first-round exit before this year, but this is the first time she has lost a first-round match at Wimbledon and only the second time. that has been defeated. her on the court in the first round of a Grand Slam (French Open 2012).

Earlier on Tuesday, No.1 seed Iga Swiatek took care of business against Croatia’s Jana Feat, winning 6-0, 6-3. American Coco Gauff, seeded 11, played three sets against Elena-Gabriela Ruse. Gauff lost the first set but advanced to the second round after finishing 2-6, 6-3, 7-5.

No.10 seed Emma Raducanu had a strong first round on Monday. The 19-year-old advanced to the second round after beating veteran Alison Van Uytvanck in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. No.8 seed Jessica Pegula got her first-round match against Donna Vekic moved to Wednesday.

No player of Russian or Belarusian nationality can play in the tournament. Wimbledon made that decision in April after Russia invaded Ukraine.
