Wimbledon 2022 results: Schedule, scores, draws, how to watch, TV channel as Djokovic reaches quarterfinals

News Post || News Now:

Wimbledon 2022 is well underway with Rafael Nadal not missing a beat after a three-year absence from The Championships, and longtime rival Novak Djokovic joining him in the quarterfinals. Meanwhile, ladies No. 1 seed Iga Swiatek saw her 37-match win streak come to an end with a third round loss to Alizé Cornet.

Nadal — seeded No. 2 fresh off winning the French Open — advanced to the quarterfinals after a 6-1, 6-2, 7-6 win over Lorenzo Sonego on Saturday. Two days prior, Nadal earned his 307th Major victory — passing Martina Navratilova for the fourth most all-time — by getting past Ricardas Berankis 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3. 

Djokovic had a more than solid week himself. On Sunday, the Serbian pulled off a 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 victory over Tim van Rijthoven, setting up a quarterfinal match against Jannik Skinner. That win came off the heels of Djokovic beating Miomir Kecmanovic 6-0, 6-3. 6-4 in the third round on Friday. On Monday, the world No. 3 became the only player to ever register at least 80 wins at all four Grand Slam events after defeating Soonwoon Kwon on Centre Court. 

Alcaraz, the 19-year-old Spanish star and No. 5 seed, became the youngest man to reach the fourth round since 2011 after taking down Oscar Otte 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 on Friday. His stellar run came to end an end Sunday, though, as Skinner defeated him 6-1, 6-4, 6-7 (8), 6-3 to advance to the quarterfinals.

On the women’s side, Swiatek’s loss to Cornet in straight sets — 6-4, 6-2 — was a stunner.  The world No. 1 had won 37 straight matches, and the previous six tournaments she’s entered, including wins at Qatar, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart, Rome and the French Open at Roland Garros. Cornet’s win put her in the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2014. Also in the ladies third round, Amanda Anisimova knocked out Coco Gauff.

Serena Williams took the court for the first time since the 2021 installment of Wimbledon on Tuesday. She had not played since last June, when she suffered a hamstring injury during her opening-round match at the All England Club. Williams’ match against Harmony Tan was a close one, but Tan walked away as the winner by going 7-5, 1-6, 7-6 (10-7) after three hours and 11 minutes on the court. Williams had to retire in the first round at the All England Club last year — her only first-round exit prior to this year — but this is the first time she’s lost a match in the first round at Wimbledon and just the second time she’s been beaten on the court in the first round of a Grand Slam (2012 French Open).

For the most part, the tops seeds are doing well, but Julie Niemeier pulled off an upset against No. 2 seed Anett Kontaveit, winning 6-4, 6-0 during Wednesday’s second round. Niemeier has proved that performance wasn’t a fluke, as she advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Heather Watson on Sunday. On the men’s side, Ugo Humbert put up a competitive fight to take down No. 3 seed Casper Ruud by a score of 3-6, 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. More impressively, he did so after forgetting to bring a racket.

Other Wimbledon headlines include Marin Cilic, not a favorite but definitely a strong dark horse, pulling out of the competition after testing positive for COVID-19. No. 8 seed Matteo Berrettini, the 2021 Wimbledon runner-up, also withdrew due to a positive test result. 

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.
