Fritz beats Gray

The Wimbledon adventure of Alastair Gray, a British tennis player who had disposed of Taiwanese Tseng in his debut, was interrupted in the second round. Eliminating him was the highly-ranked U.S. player Taylor Fritz, who to the chagrin of the spectators in attendance won in three sets with the score of 6-3, 7-6, 6-3: Gray nullified four match points before capitulating.

Since 2011, Novak Djokovic has won the prestigious British tournament six times, which was not played in 2020 because of the pandemic. When it was not the Serb who lifted the top trophy it was Roger Federer, in 2012 and 2017, and Andy Murray, in 2013 (beating Djokovic himself in the final, by the way), and 2016.

Nadal, who is still in the running for a Grand Slam in 2022, last triumphed on the London-native grass in 2010, defeating Berdych in three sets in the last act: 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
