Players to Watch Out for in Wimbledon 2022:
The 40-year-old Serena Williams has won a whopping 23 Grand Slam singles titles over the course of her career and is set to make her return to the circuit following a 1-year gap due to an injury sustained in the last edition of the championship.
Iga Swiatek is the current women’s world number one and the most in-form player from the women’s side. The 21-year-old Pole won her 2nd Grand Slam title last month at Roland-Garros and has her eyes set on the Wimbledon trophy next.
Despite injury troubles, Berrettini has enjoyed a terrific record recently. He has won 2 successive titles this month, namely the the Stuttgart Open and the Queens Club Championship. Fondly named “the Hammer,” the Italian’s powerful forehand could be a threat to his opponents.
Just one title behind Serena Williams, Nadal has 22 Grand Slam titles to his name after last month’s amazing Roland-Garros victory. With the French Open win in his pocket, the Spaniard will be entered as the no.2 seed in men’s side of the bracket, behind Djokovic.
With 20 Grand Slam titles to his credit, Djokovic will be a force to reckon with on the court as he battles it out for his 4th Wimbledon singles title in a row (7th in total). He’ll be the no.1 seed in men’s singles and is undoubtedly the best on the grass in current standings.
