Wimbledon 2022 schedule: Day 2 key matches and order of play

Wimbledon 2022 schedule: Day 2 key matches and order of play

As day two begins, yet again, there are some great matches on the schedule for fans of top-notch tennis. Today, Iga Swiatek will begin her tournament, Serena Williams will make her return to Wimbledon, and Rafael Nadal is also in action. However, while these are all big names, I don’t think they will prove to be the most ‘thrilling’ matches. These are only found when you have players that are close in standard facing off against one another. 

And I’ve produced my picks of the bunch for day two right here:

Jubb vs Kyrgios – No.3 Court

I’ve picked this one because it is a British vs Aussie clash out on court three. Sure, Kyrgios is loved by many for his entertaining and somewhat unpredictable tennis. But Jubb will have the home fans on his side, so I feel this could be a great game to tune in for. I’ve seen Jubb play in the last few years too and he does have some weapons that can trouble Kyrgios.

Auger-Aliassime vs Cressy – No. 3 Court

Auger-Aliassime is actually one of the top seeds for the event. So you may think that it’s strange for him to be listed in the top matches. However, he is facing Cressy, who has been in great grass-court form in recent times. In fact, Cressy recently lost in the finals of Eastbourne last week. He has a huge serve, a great forehand, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he snatched at least a set from Auger-Aliassime.

Muchova vs Halep – No.1 Court

Halep is a previous champion, and she is a solid grass-court player. Then again, Muchova has some weapons on the grass as well. And the fact that Halep hasn’t been playing fantastic recently means that this match could run very close indeed. This match is third up on Court One today.

Wimbledon 2022 schedule: Day 1 key matches and order of play

The schedule for day one has recently been announced. And it looks like the championships are going to get underway with some cracking matches. Here, you’ll see the order of play for the two main courts, combined with several key matches ahead of day one:

Centre Court Opening Day

As is the tradition at Wimbledon, the previous champion gets to kick things off on Centre Court. Since last year’s winner was Novak Djokovic, this means he is first up on centre. After Djokovic, we have Raducanu vs Van Uytvanck, and to wrap things up, Andy Murray will open his campaign against James Duckworth.

Court 1 Opening Day

Court one will also have some fantastic matches on Monday. Ons Jabeur (number 3 seed) will get things started, followed by the exciting prospect, Carlos Alcaraz vs Stuff. Then to wrap up the day on court 1, Kerber will play Mladenovic. 

Key Matches to Watch

Around the grounds is where you’ll find the bulk of the matches for Wimbledon. And there are several exciting matches to watch. As for my picks of the bunch, Sinner vs Wawrinka out on court 2 should be a great game. Also, Bublik vs Fucsovics should be a very interesting match. Then for the women’s draw, some key day 1 matches include Trevisan vs Cocciaretto, Bencic vs Wang, and with some British interest – Watson vs Korpatsch. 

As I said, according to the Wimbledon 2022 schedule, most of these matches will be played around the grounds. And unlike the show courts, the outdoor courts often have 4 matches scheduled for the day. Play is expected to start at 11 am sharp too, so make sure you mark it in your diary!

Wimbledon 2022 schedule: Day X key matches and order of play

With the Wimbledon 2022 schedule now starting to roll, fans are understandably getting pretty excited about the event. For clarity, this Grand Slam will take place over the course of two weeks. Matches are starting on Monday, June 27th, and the tournament will come to a close on Sunday, July 10th. Over the course of the two-week tournament, there will quite literally be hundreds of matches to tune in for. So if you are a tennis fan, Wimbledon is not one to be missed.

With this said, we wanted to provide fans with an update on the Wimbledon 2022 schedule for the next two weeks. And over the course of the next few weeks, we will be discussing key matches, as well as the order of play on the various courts. But since this is only documented once the official schedule is published, for now, we can only tell you which games are occurring on which days. This is still worth taking note of to ensure that you have your finger on the pulse. 

And by tracking the schedule, you will be prepared to tune in for whatever round and matches that you choose.

How the Wimbledon 2022 Schedule Is Looking for the Next Two Weeks

Wimbledon, like all of the other Grand Slams, takes place over the course of a fortnight. In fact, the event itself actually started on Monday, June 20th, with the qualifying rounds. These have all been wrapped up at the time of writing, however. And now, we are waiting patiently for the official draw to be announced. In the meantime, we can get you all tuned up on how the schedule is shaping up for the coming fortnight. This is all detailed below.

The Wimbledon 2022 Schedule for Week One

Week one of Wimbledon is always a delight to watch. It is the week with the most matches, and it’s also where the lesser ranked guys get a shot at the gladiators of our sport. Throughout week one, we get to see singles, doubles, as well as some mixed doubles action. This is true for both the men’s and women’s competitions. However, certain rounds are played on certain days, as we have detailed below:

Round One

With men’s and women’s singles boasting a 128 draw, round one is spectacular to tune in for. The opening rounds according to the Wimbledon 2022 schedule will be played on Monday and Tuesday, which is June 27th and 28th, respectively. Pending some dry days, which always seems a bit of a lottery at Wimbledon, round one matches will be wrapped up by Tuesday evening. 

Round Two

Round two matches for both women’s and men’s draws will be played on Wednesday and Thursday. To clarify, these dates are June 29th and 30th, and the games should begin at around 11 am each day. 

Round Three

Moving on to round three now, these games should be played on Friday and Saturday. You should be noticing a pattern here, which is consistent with previous Wimbledons. Of course, these dates are July 1st and July 2nd.

The Wimbledon 2022 Schedule for Week Two

Week two is where we are getting to the deeper stages of the tournament. At this point, men’s and women’s tournaments should be at the fourth round (round of 16) stage. Again, this is subject to how the weather unfolds during week one. But assuming things stay on track, here is what you can expect from the Wimbledon 2022 schedule for week two:

Round Four / Round of 16

The round of 16 games should commence on the middle Sunday, and they will continue through Monday too. This is actually the final stage at which the men’s and women’s draws coincide, as you are about to find out.

Quarter-finals

The quarter-final games for the women should all be played on Tuesday, pending no major adjustments to the Wimbledon 2022 schedule. But for the men, these can flow over to Wednesday too, depending on the side of the draw.

Semi-finals

Women’s semi-finals are set for Thursday, the 7th. However, the men’s semi-finals are set for Friday, July 8th. This is done to allow two days between the semis and finals.

Finals

Finals day is held on Saturday, July 9th for the ladies’ championships. As for the men’s, this is set for Sunday, July 10th – the final day of Wimbledon 2022.
