Wimbledon 2022: Day 2 Summary and Day 3 Ones to watch

The Beeb talked recently about Wimbledon 2022 showcasing the ‘end of the GOAT generation’. With Federer and Venus absent the argument is viable but add in injuries and age – on paper at least – dictating that this could be the last time we see the likes of Serena and Rafa.

Well yesterday we saw Nadal wrestle such a notion away for himself at least, in typical battling style against relative unknown Cerundolo, but in one of the best first round matches here in recent memory we said goodbye likely for the last time to the great Williams at the hand of fearless underdog Harmony Tan.

Overall, and painting with a very broad brush, things stayed true to the formbook elsewhere yesterday. True some big names did exit with Dimitrov’s retirement and losses for Giorgi, Benic [against a dangerous opponent] and Sloane Stephens. For me the match of the day and for many a big shock was Felix Auger-Aliassime losing to serve and volley maestro Maxime Cressy. A lovely 90s throwback of styles produced alot of memorable moments and quality throughout. How times have changed.
