Wimbledon 2022 results: Schedule, scores, draws, how to watch, TV channel as Serena Williams returns Tuesday

Wimbledon 2022 is officially underway. The first round is seeing some exciting action, including the returns of Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams.

Nadal, seeded No. 2, is competing at Wimbledon for the first time in three years. He took the first two sets against Francisco Cerundolo on Tuesday but struggled on the third and the beginning of the fourth. The veteran shook it off and won 16 of the last 19 points to get his 306th Major match win by going 6-4, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

On Monday, No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic was forced to four sets during his first-round match against Soonwoon Kwon. However, he still took care of business and advanced by winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court. This result helped Djokovic become the only player to register at least 80 wins at all four Grand Slam events.

That same day, No. 5 seed Carlos Alcaraz rallied late and pulled off a five-set win against Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff. Meanwhile, Marin Cilic, not a favorite but definitely a strong dark horse, was forced to pull out of the competition after testing positive for COVID-19.

On the women’s side, Serena Williams is not seeded but is taking the court for the first time since the 2021 installment of Wimbledon. She has not played since last June when she suffered an ankle injury during her opening round match at the All England Club. She is taking on Harmony Tan in her first match back.

Earlier on Tuesday, No. 1 seed Iga Swiatek took care of business against Jana Feat from Croatia, winning 6-0, 6-3. American Coco Gauff, seeded No. 11, played three sets against Elena-Gabriela Ruse. Gauff lost the first set but advanced to the second round after finishing 2-6, 6-3, 7-5.

No. 10 seed Emma Raducanu had a nice first round on Monday. The 19-year-old advanced to the second round after beating veteran Alison Van Uytvanck in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4.

No players of Russian or Belarusian nationality are allowed to play in the tournament. Wimbledon made that decision in April after Russia invaded Ukraine. As a result of the ban, some of the top players in the sport will miss out on Wimbledon, including men’s world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev and women’s world No. 6 Aryna Sabalenka.
