After the rain chaos, there should be enough tennis in Wimbledon today. The organizers have scheduled 87 games for the third day of the tournament, and six German professionals are also in action. And the weather forecast looks better.
Alexander Zverev: The Olympic champion feels ready for the classic lawn. "I feel like I'm in control of the game. And that's very important on grass," said the 26-year-old ahead of his opening match against Dutch qualifier Gijs Brouwer. However, Zverev will also have to be patient on Wednesday. The game is only scheduled as the fourth match on Court 2.
German women: Three German women are aiming for the second round after the unwanted break on Tuesday. Last year's semi-finalist Tatjana Maria will start at 12:00 p.m. (CET / Sky) against Sorana Cirstea from Romania. Last year, Maria defeated Cirstea in three sets in the second round. 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 against Taylor Fritz - the duel is now on the schedule for the third day in a row. On Monday evening, the game had to be stopped in the fifth set due to darkness. On Tuesday it was one of the matches that was last canceled. Now it should continue in the early afternoon. Hanfmann is 2:3 behind in the fifth set, but has serve.
Everything is normal: For Maximilian Marterer things are going on as normal. The qualifier from Nuremberg would have had no play on rainy Tuesday anyway. Now he can become the first German tennis pro to move into round three. Marterer meets the American lucky loser Michael Mmoh in the last game of the day on court seven. A doable task.
