ALCARAZ, SINNER ADVANCE AFTER TOPPING FOES

Alcaraz and Sinner advanced after they topped their respective foes and moved on to the third round.

Furthermore, Alcaraz overcame some struggles in the opening set before pulling off a 7-6(5), 6-2, 6-2 victory over Australian Aleksandar Vukic.

“I’m feeling similar…obviously, I’m getting better and better. Hopefully, if I keep winning, I’m going to find the same level as the final last year,” Alcaraz said.

The win sets up Alcaraz for a third-round matchup against No.29 Frances Tiafoe, a 7-6(5), 6-1, 6-3 winner over Borna Coric.

Moreover, Sinner needed four sets and three tiebreaks to dispose of Matteo Berrettini, 7-6(3), 7-6(4), 2-6, 7-6(4).

The 22-year-old world No.1 extended his winning record against Italians to 14-0, including compatriot Berrettii.

“I knew that I had to raise my level today. He is a grass-court specialist… I’m very happy how I handled the situation” Sinner said.

GAUFF ADVANCES AS OSAKA EXITS

Gauff also advanced to the next round after defeating qualifier Anca Todoni, 6-2, 6-1, on No.1 Court.

The venue was the same court where Gauff beat Venus Williams when she made her Wimbledon debut at 15 years old in 2019.

“This is the court where I first started here at Wimbledon. Court 1 is always a special place for me to play on,” Gauff said.

Gauff will next face British qualifier Sonay Kartel, who ousted Frenchwoman Clara Burel, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.

However, luck was not on Osaka’s side after she absorbed a 6-4, 6-1 loss to American Emma Navarro.

Osaka committed four errors to get broken in the seventh game of the first set by Navarro.

EMMA RADUCANU ‘SUPER EXCITED’ TO PLAY MIXED DOUBLES WITH ANDY MURRAY

Emma Raducanu, meanwhile said she is “super excited” to play in the mixed doubles alongside British tennis legend Andy Murray.

The 21-year-old Raducanu and Murray were awarded a wild-card entry in the mixed doubles.

Moreover, Raducanu said playing on the same court with Murray will be a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

“It’s been a dream of mine since I was a young girl, since watching the Olympics. Andy’s a hero to all of us,” Raducanu said.

“So for me, it’s a real gift and it’s a real honor that he asked me and it’s a moment that I could never ay no to,” she added.

The 37-year-old Murray will now play in both the men’s doubles with his brother Jamie and the mixed doubles with Raducanu.

Furthermore, this became possible after Andy Murray withdrew from the men’s singles tournament at the last minute.
