5.30 pm local time

Alcaraz was expected to go deep into the tournament and given Djokovic a bit of a fight by the looks of things. Here he is struggling to get going, down two sets to one against Jan-Lennard Struff. In the fourth, we are still on serve with Struff serving at 3-4.

On the other hand, it’s 6-6 in the final set in the match between Hurkacz and Fokina, while Raducanu has just won the first set against van Uytvanck despite going into the match as an underdog.

Also one set apiece between Isner and Couacaud.

4.30 pm local time

Play has resumed on the outside courts as well as the rain has receded. It’s one set all between Alcaraz and Struff and 2-2 in the third, so that looks like it going down to the wire.

Meanwhile Emma Raducanu has taken to court for her opening match against Alison van Uytvanck while Hubert Hurkacz is serving to make it two sets apiece. After a couple of tie-breakers, Casper Ruud is having a slightly easier time in the third against Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

4 pm local time

In the end, Djokovic finds a way to get past Kwon but not before he drops a set. Cameron Norrie has also gone past Pablo Andujar in straight sets but over at Court 1, Carlos Alcaraz has dropped the first set to Jan-Lennard Struff and leads 6-5 in the second but on serve.

3.30 pm local time

Preview

64 men and women will take to court for their first round matches as the Wimbledon 2022 kick-starts on Monday, June 27.

Djokovic will be up against Korea’s Soon-woo Kwon in what could be a straightforward opener for the Serb as he looks to make it his 21st Grand Slam title.

Following him on centre court will be Emma Raducanu who is battling injury and form concerns as she hopes to avoid an early loss to Alison van Uytvanck. Andy Murray will be the second Briton to take to centre court as he takes on Australia’s James Duckworth.

Court 1 action will have Ons Jabeur facing Sweden’s Mariam Bjorklund and again the world number three has some injury concerns for her. The man for the future, Carlos Alcaraz will be next to take to court there as he faces Jan-Lennard Struff while former Wimbledon winner Angelique Kerber will be up against Kristina Mladenovic.

Another British player, the men’s number one from the UK, Cameron Norrie will be first to take to court 2 when he takes on Pablo Andujar. And if it all goes to plan, Anett Kontaveit should be on court next in no time as she faces Bernarda Pera.

In what could be the match of the day, Stan Wawrinka has a chance to cause some mayhem when he faces the 10th seeded Jannik Sinner before the matches on that court get rounded off with Maria Sakkari taking on Zoe Hives.

Casper Ruud, Hubert Hurkacz, Danielle Collins and Belinda Bencic will be some of the other players who will be in action on day 1 of this year’s Wimbledon.
