Andy and Emma are out of Wimbledon 2022. It was a terrible day 3 for all the British fans as two of the most loved tennis players are out of the tournament. In round 2, they faced defeats. Andy Murray was against the very tall American, John Isner. It was always going to be a tough match as Isner’s serve is his biggest weapon, especially in Wimbledon. The fast-paced grass courts suit his serve and volley game. Emma was against the Spaniard Carolina Garcia who was not in the best of forms. The desire that Emma showed in the first round was impressive, considering she was against a tough opponent. Norrie had an extremely tough game but is the only one out of three to make it through to the next round.
The hopes of every British fan has been shattered, that too very early on in the competition. Their dream of watching their player to lift the Wimbledon trophy looks almost impossible now. It will be up to C. Norrie to figure out how to go about the situation. He is no doubt the highest rated British player in the tournament at #9 but the fans are not sure if he could make it. Nevertheless, it is their job to keep supporting no matter what. Moreover, he is only one left with the entire responsibility on his shoulders.
A depth analysis of what happened in the matches.
