2021 Wimbledon Men's Singles Section-by-Section Preview

Section 1


Seeds: 1) Novak Djokovic, 13) Gaël Monfils, 17) Cristian Garín, 30) Alejandro Davidovich Fokina

Who's Hot?

Novak Djokovic - Overall, it will be tough to classify anybody as “hot” considering the pre-Wimbledon grass court season is just three weeks long, but Djokovic, who did not play singles at any of the lead up tournaments, remains as hot as possible. Following his epic victory at the French Open just three weeks ago, Djokovic surprisingly opted to play doubles last week on the grass at the Mallorca Open. Djokovic looked sharp as he and his partner, Carlos Gómez-Herrera, reached the finals (an injury to Gómez-Herrera forced the pair to withdraw prior to the final). In singles, Djokovic has won his last 11 matches, is 27-3 overall in 2021 and is 68-5 over the last two years. The two-time defending champion in London comes into the tournament in great form as he seeks his historic 20th Grand Slam title.

Who's Not?

Gaël Monfils - The 35-year-old was playing arguably the best tennis of his career prior to the pandemic in early 2020, but ever since the tour shutdown Monfils has been struggling. So far in 2021, the Frenchman is just 2-8 with an 0-2 record on grass. In the lead up to Wimbledon he lost to Lloyd Harris and Max Purcell in Halle and Eastbourne respectively.

Biggest Storyline - Can Anybody Even Test Novak Djokovic?

Djokovic was already the overwhelming favorite to win the tournament, but his favorable draw made that argument even stronger. Aside from Kevin Anderson, who could admittedly be a tricky round two matchup, there is nobody in this section that is even likely to take a set from the world no. 1. The three seeded players other than Djokovic in section one are: Cristian Garín and Alejandro Davidovich, both great players just not really threats on the grass, and the previously mentioned, slumping Gaël Monfils, who is 0-17 in his career against Djokovic anyway. Therefore, Djokovic should easily cruise through this section and into the quarterfinals. If he were to lose more than one set in his first four matches, it would be a surprise.

Best Round One Matchup: Novak Djokovic vs. Jack Draper - Not a ton to pick from here, so I will go with Djokovic, who is frequently a villain on Centre Court, against the local British teenager Jack Draper. After a solid week at Queen’s Club, maybe the 19-year-old will be able to hang around with Djokovic in the first match on Wimbledon’s Centre Court since 2019.

Best Potential Matchup: Novak Djokovic vs. Kevin Anderson (Round Two) - This was the final here at Wimbledon in 2018, and now we could get it in round two. Anderson has really struggled in recent years, but between his big serve and the relatively boring choices to pick from, this has to be the match to look out for in Section 1.

Player to Watch: Denis Kudla - If I haven’t made it clear already, this section is not very interesting. That is why I’m looking at world No. 114, 28-year-old American Denis Kudla, as somebody to watch. Kudla did not drop a set in qualifying and made a final and quarterfinal at his last two challenger events, both on grass. His ceiling is obviously a round three loss to Djokovic, but just getting to that point (for the first time since 2019 and just third time overall at a Grand Slam) would be considered a success.

Section Winner: Novak Djokovic - I don’t even need to waste words explaining this lock. Djokovic has a date with destiny and there is no way anybody from this weak section is going to get in his way.

 

Section 2


Seeds: 5) Andrey Rublev, 9) Diego Schwartzman, 19) Jannik Sinner, 26) Fabio Fognini

Who's Hot?

Andrey Rublev - The world no. 7, who is 33-10 in 2021, enters Wimbledon after reaching his first career final on grass two weeks ago in Halle. The 23-year-old is just 8-4 in his career on the surface, but his run to the finals in Halle showed that he is primed to continue establishing himself as a top player at the sport’s most famous tournament.

Who's Not?

Benoît Paire - It gets lost in Paire’s ridiculous antics, but the Frenchman is an abysmal 2-16 in 2021. He likely won’t care much, but the former world no. 18 (yes, that actually happened) is set up to extend his losing streak to seven matches as he plays nine seed Diego Schwartzman in round one.

Biggest Storyline - Jannik Sinner On Grass

As is the case with many young stars at this year’s Wimbledon, especially on the Women’s side, we have barely seen Jannik Sinner play on grass. At the ATP level, the 19-year-old has played just two matches on grass, losing both. Sinner is obviously one of the most talented players on tour, and he has the game to eventually win on the surface, but it is still an unknown when it comes to expect from him at this year’s Wimbledon.

Best Round One Matchup: Márton Fucsovics vs. Jannik Sinner - Speaking of what to expect from Sinner, he will instantly have a chance to prove himself. Fucsovics isn’t a great grass court player by any means, but the veteran should still be a threat to push, and potentially upset, the rising star in this round one affair.

Best Potential Matchup: Andrey Rublev vs. Jannik Sinner (Round Four) - There are plenty of great potential fourth round matchups, but I think this one might be my favorite. I would imagine grass is the least preferred surface for both guys, and that makes the matchup even more intriguing. This match would certainly be filled with plenty of adjustments from a pair of very smart players, and just feels like a five-set-match waiting to happen.

Player to Watch: Jannik Sinner - Again, my eyes are on Sinner as we see his first appearance at Wimbledon. His range of outcomes is wider than most, as I could easily see him fall in round one to Fucsovics, but also see him roll through the section and give Djokovic a tough match in the quarterfinals.

Section Winner: Andrey Rublev - I went back-and-forth here between Rublev and Sinner, but I ultimately opted for Rublev and his Grand Slam experience. The Russian has made the quarterfinals in three of the last four Grand Slams, and I feel like he is ready to reach that stage at Wimbledon for the first time. I really liked what I saw from him in Halle and think he is ready to officially become an all-surface player.

 

Section 3


Seeds: 3) Stefanos Tsitsipas, 15) Alex de Minaur, 22) Dan Evans, 25) Karen Khachanov

Who's Hot?

Alex de Minaur - The young Australian clearly made an effort to prioritize the grass season as he played in all three weeks prior to Wimbledon. He reached the quarterfinals in Stuttgart, then lost in the semifinals to eventual champion Matteo Berrettini at Queen’s Club, and, yesterday, won his first grass court title in Eastbourne. After a rocky start to the 2021 season, de Minaur seems to have gotten himself into good shape on the grass.

Who's Not?

Karen Khachanov - The world no. 25 has easily been one of my most disappointing players on tour this year. The Russian has struggled to remain consistent ever since his breakout in the Summer of 2018, but in 2021 he is a terrible 16-14. He played in just one grass tournament this year, losing to 39-year-old Feliciano López in the second round in Mallorca.

Gilles Simon - The 36-year-old, former world no. 6 should be making retirement plans as he is 2-12 in 2021 with nine losses in a row. Lucky for Simon, he faces Dušan Lajović (8-16 in 2021) in round one with a real chance to break his losing streak.

Biggest Storyline - Post-Clay, What Does Stefanos Tsitsipas Have Left In The Tank?

Stefanos Tsitsipas emerged as a true superstar this year during the clay season. He won his first Masters 1000 title in Monte Carlo, went toe-to-toe with Rafael Nadal in Barcelona and had a 2-0 set lead over Novak Djokovic in the French Open final. After his deflating blown lead against Djokovic in the final (and the announcement that his grandmother had passed away), Tsitsipas withdrew from Halle. Therefore, he enters Wimbledon without playing any grass matches since 2019. The 22-year-old’s game is well suited for grass and, with Rafael Nadal out of the draw and all the unknowns surrounding Roger Federer, a worthy second favorite for the title. However, after such a grueling clay season, it will be interesting to see how much Tsitsipas has left both physically and emotionally as we move into the Summer.

Best Round One Matchup: (Tie) Sebastian Korda vs. Alex de Minaur and Frances Tiafoe vs. Stefanos Tsitsipas - With the top two seeds in the section playing two of my favorite young Americans, I couldn’t pick one over the other. Tiafoe won a challenger event on grass a few weeks ago and may be able to take advantage of a potentially drained Tsitsipas. While I definitely favor Tsitsipas in the match, I would be surprised if it were just a straight-forward, three-set victory. The 20-year-old Korda had a strong week in Halle with wins over Roberto Bautista Agut and Kei Nishikori before a tough three-set loss to eventual champion Ugo Humbert. His lack of experience on grass makes me hesitant to pick Korda to grab the upset, but this should be another great four or five-set match.

Best Potential Matchup: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Alex de Minaur (Round Four) - The vision that I have of Tsitsipas ripping groundstroke after groundstroke while de Minaur chases them all down makes me want to skip straight to this match. While de Minaur is playing great tennis right now, he would still be a heavy underdog as Tsitsipas holds a 5-0 head-to-head advantage over him (7-1 including Qualifying, Challengers and Futures).

Player to Watch: Alex de Minaur - I targeted de Minaur as a player to watch in Paris and he let me down with a second-round loss. Regardless, I am going back to him here and am looking at him to make a breakthrough run on the big stage. He looked so good on the grass over the last few weeks that I am comfortable saying, as long as the serve holds up, he is a true darkhorse in London.

Section Winner: Alex de Minaur - To prove my confidence in de Minaur, I am going to go out on a limb and select him to upset Tsitsipas and make a run all the way to the semifinals (!). He has let me down before, so I am prepared to be extremely wrong, but I just have a great feeling about de Minaur on the grass and feel like he is an even safer bet than Tsitsipas to reach round four.

 

Section 4


Seeds: 8) Roberto Bautista Agut, 10) Denis Shapovalov, 24) Nikoloz Basilashvili, 27) Reilly Opelka

Who's Hot?

Denis Shapovalov - Nobody in this section is truly “hot,” but Shapovalov is the closest to it. The Canadian missed the French Open after a strong clay season, and he continued that momentum despite the time off as he put together a respectable grass season (Quarters in Stuttgart, Semis at Queen’s Club).

Who's Not?

Roberto Bautista Agut - The typically consistent veteran has really struggled as of late with a 20-15 record in 2021, 1-2 this year on grass, and six losses in his last nine matches.

Biggest Storyline - Andy Murray’s Wimbledon Return

While Murray is obviously not a threat to win the tournament, this, especially in a weak section, has to be the headline. The two-time Wimbledon champion is playing the event for the first time since 2017 after dealing with injuries, a retirement, setbacks and comebacks. Just getting back to this stage is a huge deal, but Murray’s performance at Queen’s Club was solid, so maybe he can even sneak into the third or fourth round. With all that being said, don’t expect Murray to make a 1991 US Open Jimmy Connors-esque run deep into the second week.

Best Round One Matchup: Andy Murray vs. Nikoloz Basilashvili - Murray’s return on Monday to the court where he won two Wimbledon titles and a Gold Medal will surely be an emotional one. His first match was always going to be an intriguing one, but the fact that he is playing a seeded player in Nikoloz Basilashvili makes it even more compelling.

Best Potential Matchup: Denis Shapovalov vs. Andy Murray (Round Three) – Continuing with Murray theme, a showdown with a rising star like Shapovalov would easily be one of the most exciting matches of the tournament’s first week.

Player to Watch: Reilly Opelka - It’s impossible to miss the 6-foot 11-inch American, but the rest of the draw should be looking out for him. Where he fell in the draw was of much interest to many fans of the top seeds, but it ended up helping Opelka himself more than hurting anyone. If the 23-year-old can get hot serving on the grass, I would give him a shot against anybody on tour other than Djokovic. He has been disappointing throughout 2021, but with his serve, this surface, and a favorable draw, he has to be considered a strong sleeper.

Section Winner: Reilly Opelka - I’ll officially make Opelka my sleeper pick and select the 27-seed to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal. If Opelka serves well, Shapovalov is really the only player in this section with a chance to stop him. If he can serve his way through this section, I even like him as a darkhorse to get all the way to the semifinals.

 

Section 5


Seeds: 7) Matteo Berrettini, 12) Casper Ruud, 20) Aslan Karatsev, 28) John Isner

Who's Hot?

Matteo Berrettini - The heavy-hitting Italian continued his fantastic 2021 season with a title at Queen’s Club. The world no. 9 dropped just one set on the way to his second grass court title.

Who's Not?

Aslan Karatsev - Karatsev was the story of the season early on as he came out of nowhere to become a top player on tour. Recently, he has fallen into a bit of a slump with four losses in his last six matches. He isn’t as “cold” as some of the other “not hot” players, but in this section, he fits the criteria best.

Biggest Storyline - Pressure On Matteo Berrettini

At Wimbledon 2019, the last time the tournament was played, Berrettini was set to face Roger Federer in the fourth round. Berrettini, fresh off of a title in Stuttgart and semifinal in Halle, was expected to give the living legend a great test. Instead, Berrettini completely shrunk in the moment and lost 1-6, 2-6, 2-6. Now, Berrettini is no longer viewed as a young underdog. He has made the second week in five of the last seven Grand Slams and is considered one of the best players, especially on grass, on tour. It will be very interesting to watch how the 25-year-old deals with the new pressure that comes with being a contender.

Best Round One Matchup: Alexei Popyrin vs. Kei Nishikori - Going a little off-the-board here with a match between two unseeded players, but it’s Kei Nishikori in the first round of a Grand Slam, you know that means it’ll be a five-setter. Also, Popyrin is not simply the opponent to the headliner Nishikori, he is an exciting young Australian who actually had set points against Rafael Nadal in the first round of the French Open three weeks ago.

Best Potential Matchup: John Isner vs. Matteo Berrettini (Round Three) - The first test for Berrettini will come in round three. He should cruise through the first two rounds, John Isner should do the same. With two of the best servers on tour going at it on the grass, expect a match filled with aces and tiebreaks. It is only the third round, but I like the winner of the match to make it to at least the semifinals.

Player to Watch: Kei Nishikori - With Berrettini and Isner battling on the top half of the section, the unseeded Nishikori fell nicely into the half of the section with Aslan Karatsev and Casper Ruud as the seeds. Nishikori is much more experienced in Grand Slams and on grass than the two seeds, so he should be the favorite to reach round four. If he gets hot through his first three matches, he has a shot to make a real deep run.

Section Winner: Matteo Berrettini - I’ve been banging the drum for Berrettini as a Wimbledon contender for the last few weeks, so this was a very easy pick. I expect him to overcome tough challenges from Isner and Nishikori to reach his first Wimbledon quarterfinal. In fact, I have Berrettini as my favorite on the bottom half of the draw to meet Djokovic in the final.

 

Section 6


Seeds: 4) Alexander Zverev, 16) Félix Auger-Aliassime, 21) Ugo Humbert, 31) Taylor Fritz

Who's Hot?

Félix Auger-Aliassime - The 20-year-old has proven himself to be a fantastic grass court player. The Canadian built his lifetime record on the surface to 14-5 with a final appearance at Stuttgart and semifinal finish in Halle.

Ugo Humbert - The 23-year-old won the biggest title of his career two weeks ago in Halle. On the way to the title, the Frenchman picked up wins against Sam Querrey, Alexander Zverev, Sebastian Korda, Félix Auger-Aliassime and Andrey Rublev. That is about as impressive a run you can have to win an ATP 500 title.

Who's Not?

Nick Kyrgios - This pick is just by default considering Kyrgios hasn’t played since the Australian Open in February. Considering training doesn’t seem to be a major component of Kyrgios’ life even when he is playing more frequently, the long layoff may not even be a big deal.

Biggest Storyline - A Chance For Félix Auger-Aliassime To Make A Leap, Again

Another Grand Slam, another chance for “FAA” to finally have that breakthrough performance he has been looking for. After his strong performances in the lead up to Wimbledon, including a win over Roger Federer, the pressure is on the 20-year-old to finally get to a major quarterfinal. If he suffers another loss in the first or second round (like he did at the French Open) it will be time to take a serious look at his Grand slam struggles.

Best Round One Matchup: Nick Kyrgios vs. Ugo Humbert - These two played a great five-set match earlier this year in Melbourne, and I expect a similar result on Tuesday. Kyrgios won their first meeting, but I have to give Humbert the slight edge here given his good form and Kyrgios’ layoff.

Best Potential Matchup: Nick Kyrgios vs. Alexander Zverev (Round Four) - With all of the attention on Auger-Aliassime, Kyrgios and Humbert, Zverev has been under-the-radar in this section. With his early round Grand Slam struggles seemingly in the rear-view, Zverev should be able to easily get to the fourth round. That would likely set up a blockbuster clash with either Kyrgios or Auger-Aliassime. The Kyrgios matchup would definitely be the most compelling as they have played a handful of great matches, but never on the Grand Slam stage.

Player to Watch: Nick Kyrgios – As mentioned before, Kyrgios hasn’t played in months. However, if anybody (other than the “Big 3”) were to make a run after four and a half full months off, it would be Kyrgios. The Humbert matchup is brutal, and that is punishment for not playing and being seeded at a Grand Slam, but if he can get through that, he can pose a real threat to the top two seeds (Auger-Aliassime and Alexander Zverev) in the section and honestly has the upside to make it all the way to the finals.

Section Winner: Félix Auger-Aliassime - Just as I did with de Minaur, I’ve fallen for the Auger-Aliassime trap again. He looked so great on the grass (even though his final losing streak continued) that I just can’t not pick him to win this section. Kyrgios would be a very tough round three, but I actually like Humbert to knock him out. That would set up FAA vs. Humbert IV (with all four matches coming on grass somehow), where I would favor the Canadian. Then I’ll have to roll with Auger-Aliassime to upset Zverev, who I still don’t entirely trust on grass for some reason, in round four. There is enough pressure on Auger-Aliassime, but I’ll add this: if he doesn’t win this section, I will ban myself from picking him to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal until at least Wimbledon 2022 (the same applies for de Minaur).

 

Section 7


Seeds: 6) Roger Federer, 11) Pablo Carreño Busta, 23) Lorenzo Sonego, 29) Cameron Norrie

Who's Hot?

Cameron Norrie - The 25-year-old, 29-seed is playing by far the best tennis of his career. After a surprisingly great clay season, Norrie played well on the grass with a run to the final at Queen’s Club. Overall, the British no. 2 is 29-13 in 2021.

Sam Querrey - The two biggest wins of Querrey’s career have come at Wimbledon (2016 over world no. 1 Novak Djokovic and 2017 over world no. 1 Andy Murray) and if he wants to duplicate those runs, he is peaking at the right time. At Stuttgart he made the semifinals, in Halle he did lose round one, but it was to Ugo Humbert in three tight sets, and then he reached the final in Mallorca. After a 2-6 start to 2021, he went 6-3 on the grass.

Who's Not?

Roger Federer – This may be unfair considering the last two results for the 39-year-old about a year removed from two knee surgeries have been three wins at the French Open (before a controversial withdrawal) and a three-set loss to an in-form Félix Auger-Aliassime in Halle. Still, the fact that he failed to even get to the third round after leaving Paris to prioritize the grass is enough for me to put him here.

Lucas Pouille - The former world no. 10, and, more recently, 2019 Australian Open semifinalist, has really fallen from grace. He had to go through qualifying all three weeks between his round one French Open loss and the start of Wimbledon. Even worse, he qualified for just one of the three events, losing to world no. 247 Altug Celikbilek and the now retired Viktor Troicki in the other two.

Biggest Storyline - All Eyes On Roger Federer

As expected, the biggest story at Wimbledon this year is Roger Federer. The minute he withdrew from the French Open, it was clear that he was putting all of his chips in the Wimbledon basket. In his return to the court in 2021, there have been plenty of positive signs, but none that say he will win his ninth Wimbledon title. He hasn’t beaten Djokovic at a Grand Slam since 2012, so he won’t win the title regardless of his level if his rival gets to the final. However, his pedigree combined with the grass court struggles of the rest of the field (especially without Nadal in the mix), is enough to at least give his fans hope for one last miracle run. We know the crowd will be heavily on his side, maybe more than ever considering this may (I don’t think so, but it’s possible) be his final Wimbledon. Just like I said with the French Open, there is a ton of variance when it comes to Federer’s outcomes. Can he make a dream run all the way to the final? Of course, he is still more talented than the rest of the field. Can he simply just be old and not fit enough to get to the second week? Sure. I’m leaning more towards an early upset than a run to the finals, but everything is on the table here. No matter what, this is definitely Federer’s last chance to win a Grand Slam.

Best Round One Matchup: Roger Federer vs. Adrian Mannarino - Let’s start right away with Federer’s opening match. The crafty Adrian Mannarino was not the easy draw that I expected Federer to get from his pals in London, but maybe it really isn’t rigged. Mannarino is fresh off of a semifinal appearance in Mallorca and, while I don’t think he has the game required to beat Federer at even 70ish%, could take this to four or five sets. Regardless of what Mannarino does, this match will be all about Federer. If he looks good in his opening match, he can play his way into shape and hope his body holds up. If he looks off physically or with a barrage of errors, we can quickly write him off as a contender. The match will be on Federer’s racket, and it will give an early indication of his chances this fortnight.

Best Potential Matchup: Roger Federer vs. Cameron Norrie (Round Three) - Sticking with Federer, in his potential round three matchup he wouldn’t just have to face Cameron Norrie, but he would also face the Centre Court crowd rooting for their fellow Brit (kidding). In all seriousness, the red-hot Norrie would be a great test for Federer. Like Mannarino, I don’t think Norrie has the weapons to beat Federer, but, again, Federer can easily beat himself if Norrie is able to keep the pressure.

Player to Watch: Pablo Carreño Busta - The 29-year-old has flown completely under the radar despite being the 11-seed. I guess it is for good reason considering he is 0-5 in his career at Wimbledon. However, he did look pretty good in Mallorca and has made the second week at the other Grand Slams seven times since 2017. His first-round match with Sam Querrey is a very tough draw, but I don’t think it is too unrealistic to say he could be in a battle with Federer in round four. With all that being said, and I really think he is worth watching, I still think Querrey takes him out in round one.

Section Winner: Roger Federer - Even with everything I have said about Federer so far, I just don’t see anyone in this section that can beat him. Again, he can beat himself, but that just isn’t a chance I’m willing to take. I don’t think he has a chance to win the tournament (I envision a quarterfinal loss), but I can’t go on the record with an upset by Mannarino, Norrie, or Querrey, even if it wouldn’t shock me.

 

Section 8


Seeds: 2) Daniil Medvedev, 14) Hubert Hurkacz, 18) Grigor Dimitrov, 32) Marin Cilić

Who's Hot?

Marin Cilić - In Stuttgart, out of nowhere, the 32-year-old won his first title in three years. He then made the quarters at quarterfinals at Queen’s Club where he lost a tough three-setter to Alex de Minaur. He is getting hot at the right time and, to the benefit of the seeded players and to himself, moved into the 32-seed once Dominic Thiem withdrew. Maybe Cilić’s surprise mini-renaissance can continue into the majors.

Who's Not?

Hubert Hurkacz - Hurkacz’s disappointing run following his maiden Masters 1000 title in Miami continued on the grass as he went 0-2 in the lead up events. The world no. 17 is on “upset” (if you can even call it an upset) alert early against Lorenzo Musetti in round one.

Biggest Storyline - The Most Open Section

While the section isn’t filled with many dangerous unseeded players, the seeded players are all volatile enough to make this the most open of the eight sections. Hurkacz was up and is trending down, Cilić was down and trending up, Grigor Dimitrov still (seemingly) isn’t fully healthy and world no. 2 Daniil Medvedev is just 5-3 in his career at Wimbledon. Honestly, I could see a scenario in which they lost in round one or that they made the quarterfinals for all four of the seeded players. Throw in Lorenzo Musetti, Jan-Lennard Struff, Alexander Bublik and Carlos Alcaraz as the unseeded players to watch and we have a very fun and open section.

Best Round One Matchup: Daniil Medvedev vs. Jan-Lennard Struff – Medvedev, who won his first career title on grass last week in Mallorca, gets instant pressure from the man who beat him two weeks ago in Halle. This is easily one of the best matches of the first round and will either allow Medvedev to establish himself as an early contender or shakeup the bottom half of the draw.

Best Potential Matchup: Marin Cilić vs. Daniil Medvedev (Round Three) - I really don’t have a particular reason for liking this match. I just think these are the two best players in the section, so this match will decide the quarterfinalists. If Medvedev wins, it means he is in great form with big wins over Struff and Cilic in the early stages. If Cilić were to win, he would set himself up for a nice run into the second week.

Player to Watch: Grigor Dimitrov - If Dimitrov were healthy, I may have actually picked him to win this section. However, unfortunately, he just can’t ever stay healthy. After retiring in the first round of the French Open and withdrawing from the pre-Wimbledon grass tune-ups, I have no reason to believe he is fit enough to make a run here. If he surprisingly is, then he has at least a chance to make a nice run.

Section Winner: Daniil Medvedev - I don’t love this pick, but I still trust Medvedev more than anyone else in this section. He looked pretty good on his way to the Mallorca title, and I finally saw the potential for his quirky game on the grass. The key for Medvedev to go deep will be playing well at the net, but that is a problem that he can solve along the way. I think he can win this open section even if he is not at his best.

 

My full, official predictions for both the men's and women's draws will be out later today. Also, today’s planned episode of “Serve and Volley with Jack & Joe” previewing the draws was canceled as Jack is under the weather. We will be back early this week to react to the first round and look ahead to the rest of the tournament!
