Wimbledon Draw: Croatian Tennis Players Learn Opponents in 3rd Grand Slam of Season

June 25, 2022 - The Wimbledon draw was held on Friday, revealing the first-round meetings for Croatian tennis players. 

Croatian tennis player Jana Fett, who made it through the qualifications to the main Wimbledon tournament, will play in the first round against the world's No. 1 tennis player, Iga Swiatek from Poland. 

Donna Vekić also got a tough opponent and will play against the eighth-seed American Jessica Pegula. It will be the first time they play each other. 

Petra Martić also drew an American as her opponent in the first round - the 37th tennis player in the world, Shelby Rogers. Martić achieved her two best results at Wimbledon in 2017 and 2019, when she reached the fourth round.

The best Croatian tennis player Marin Čilić will play against the 52nd player in the world, American Mackenzie McDonald, in the first round. Čilić and McDonald have played only once, and Marin celebrated at the 2019 Australian Open.

Borna Ćorić will play against the 12th seed Argentine Diego Schwartzman. It will be their fifth duel, and so far, they are 2-2 head-to-head. 

Nikola Mektić and Mate Pavić will open the doubles tournament against Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Benoit Paire, while Ivan Dodig and partner Austin Krajicek will face Steve Johnson and Samuel Querrey. 

Wimbledon title defender Novak Djokovic will start the campaign for his 21st Grand Slam title against South Korean Kwon Soon-woo in the first round, while second seed Rafael Nadal plays against Argentine Francisco Cerundol, the 42nd player in the world.

The young Spanish rising star and fifth seed Carlos Alcaraz will face German Jan-Lennard Struff at the start.

Looking further into the draw, Djokovic and Alcaraz, and Nadal and Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime could meet in the quarterfinals if they are successful until then. 

Serena Williams, who has not played a single match for a year due to injury, will begin the hunt for her 24th Grand Slam title against French tennis player Harmony Tan, 113th on the WTA list. If she wins, she will face Sara Sorribes Tormo and last year's finalist Karolina Pliškova in the third round.
