After Rain in Wimbledon: Zverev and Co. Face Extra Matches
London - Following the rain chaos, Wimbledon promises a tennis-packed day today. The organizers have scheduled 87 matches for the third day of the tournament, including six German professionals. Moreover, the weather forecast looks better.
Alexander Zverev Prepares for the Grass Classic Olympic champion Alexander Zverev feels ready for the grass classic. "I feel like I have control over the game, and that is crucial on grass," said the 26-year-old before his opening match against Dutch qualifier Gijs Brouwer. However, Zverev will need to be patient on Wednesday as the match is scheduled as the fourth match on Court 2.
German Women Aim for the Second Round After an unwanted break on Tuesday, three German women strive for the second round. First up is last year's semifinalist Tatjana Maria, who will face Sorana Cirstea from Romania at 12:00 pm (CET/Sky). Maria defeated Cirstea in three sets in the second round last year. Also in action are Jule Niemeier against French Open finalist Karolina Muchova from the Czech Republic and Tamara Korpatsch against Canadian Carol Shao.
Third Attempt: Yannick Hanfmann vs. Taylor Fritz The duel between Yannick Hanfmann and Taylor Fritz has been on the schedule for the third consecutive day. The match was suspended due to darkness in the fifth set on Monday evening. On Tuesday, it was among the last matches to be canceled. Now, it is set to continue in the early afternoon. Hanfmann is trailing 2-3 in the fifth set but has the advantage of serving.
Maximilian Marterer Continues as Planned For Maximilian Marterer, everything proceeds as usual. The Nuremberg qualifier would have had a day off on the rainy Tuesday. Now, he has the opportunity to become the first German tennis professional to reach the third round. Marterer will face American lucky loser Michael Mmoh in the last match of the day on Court 7. It's a manageable task.
