Berrettini-Sonego in the first round -

Unlucky draw at Wimbledon, with the blue derby between Matteo Berrettini and Lorenzo Sonego already in the first round

From Stuttgart tears in the first round a Wimbledon. The draw of the Championships was cruel with Lorenzo Sonego and Matteo Berrettini, great friends but immediately against each other, as happened a few days ago in Germany, when Matteo left defeated and heartbroken. The blue derby — Berrettini returns after missing the Queen'stwo years ago he played the final at Wimbledon — just one of the elements for deeming the Grand Slam draw on the lawns starting on Monday at the All England Club unlucky, anticipated - as already happened last year - by the opening of the sacred Central for the trainings, which also saw Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner among the protagonists.

Sinner on Djokovic's side

The South Tyrolean opens against Juan Manuel Cerundolobrother of that Francisco who defeated him at the Foro Italico. Sinner, but also Lorenzo Musetti - who will face the Peruvian Varillas in his debut - are on Djokovic's side of the draw (the short one, the Serbian seeded number 2), with Musetti crossing Nole in the round of 16. Hypothetical quarters: Alcaraz-Rune, Medvedev-Tsitsipas, Sinner-Ruud and Rublev-Djokovic. The other blues: Cecchinato-Jarry and Arnaldi (qualified)-Carballes Baena. Among the women: Giorgi-Gacheva, Cocciaretto-Osorio, Trevisan-Sorribes Tormo, Paolini-Kvitova (another unfortunate pairing), Errani-Brengle, Bronzetti-Cristian and Stefanini-Kontaveit, the latter player who has recently announced the decision to retreat.
