Wimbledon draw revealed: Belgian contenders know what to expect

Wimbledon draw revealed: Belgian contenders know what to expect

Wimbledon begins on June 27, and a draw was held on Friday morning to reveal the posters for these four Grand Slams.

In his four pitfalls against Radu Albott, Goffin, 32, has won 115th place in the ATP rankings, including on Halle grass in 2019.

Winner of the Ilkley Challenger last Sunday, Zizou Bergs received an invitation from the organizers to join the final draw for Wimbledon, his first entry to a major tournament, without going through the qualifiers. The Belgian, ranked 2, 23, 146 in the world, inherited on Friday in a London park from Britain’s Jack Draper, 20, 108 in the world. It will be the second duel between the young players and Bergs’ chance for revenge after a final three-set loss to the Briton this year at the St-Brieuc Challenger on hard ground.

In terms of women’s, Elise Mertens will face Camila Osorio, 61st in the world, and Alison van Uytvanck takes on Emma Raducano, who is ranked 11th in the world. Greet Minnen will challenge Garbiñe Muguruza, 10th in the world.

Thus, Greet Minnen inherited the hardest piece, in the Belgian clan, in the first round at Wimbledon. The draw, which was held on Monday in London, imposed the Spanish Garbine Muguruza, 28, the tenth player in the world, on the young Belgian young man, who is ranked 24th and 89th in the world.

Winner in 2017 in London Park, and finalist in 2015, Muguruza did not meet Great Menin on the track. Minin was knocked out in the first round last year at her first Wimbledon.

Alison van Uytvanck, 28, 46 in the world, will also have to face Britain’s Emma Radocano (No. 10), 19, 11 in the world, who already beat the second-seeded Belgian in Chicago last year in her only showdown on the circuit. Van Uytvanck plays Wimbledon for the eighth time.

A tough draw is also for Marina Zaniewska (WTA 68), 28, who opposes the 13th seed from these Grand Slams this season, Czech Barbora Krejsikova, 26, 15th in the world, victorious at Roland Garros last year. You will meet for the first time on the ring. This is Zaniewska’s second appearance at Wimbledon, who was knocked out in the first round in 2017.

Elise Mertens (24th), 26th, 30th in the world, inherited Colombian Camila Osorio, 20, 61st in the WTA rankings, in the first round, which she will meet for the first time. It’s obviously an easier task for the Belgian No. 1 as she approaches her fourth Wimbledon tournament.

In the final tournament of her singles career, Kirsten Flickens, 36, 257 in the WTA rankings, will face a player of qualifications, Australian Jimmy Furless, 21, 153 in the WTA rankings. Campinois will make her 12th appearance at Wimbledon, reaching the semi-finals in 2013. However, Kirsten Flipkins will continue to play doubles.
