The 2021 edition of Wimbledon will start tomorrow, and as usual Ubitennis CEO Ubaldo Scanagatta called his peer Steve Flink to discuss the draw and predict what will happen throughout the London fortnight. They touched upon many themes, including the most interesting matches of the first round and the chances of Medvedev, Tsitsipas and Berrettini. Here’s their chat:

 

VIDEO SCHEDULE

01:00 – The men’s draw – is this Djokovic’s tournament to lose? “I think he will face Tsitsipas again, this time in the semifinals.”

07:10 – The most interesting match-ups of the opening round.

10:20 – Ugo Humbert was outstanding in Halle, where he beat Zverev. Now the two might meet again in the fourth round – can the Frenchman pull off another upset?

10:50 – Matteo Berrettini had a great run at the Queen’s Club as well – can he be a dark horse?

12:20 – “Berrettini could end up in a couple of serve shootouts against Isner in the third round and against Zverev in the quarter finals. He wins most of his points on the first serve, but against the German his backhand could be outmatched.”

19:55 – Roger Federer could square off against Medvedev in the quarter finals: does the Swiss have another deep run in him? “It all depends on him, he had quite a good draw.”

23:55 – “I think that the real issue with Federer is how his body will hold up when going the distance…”

29:05 – What type of player could be a greater threat to Federer?

36:10 – Which is the likeliest men’s final?

42:10 – Will Djokovic be tested along the way? “I feel like he could reach the final with a lot of gas still in the tank, whereas I’m not so sure that his opponents will be able to do the same.”

47.45 – The women’s draw. Is this Serena Williams’ last shot at a record-tying 24th Major?

51.20 – “The women’s draw is always harder to predict. Barty is very talented but she’s struggling mightily with injuries…”

55.25 – “I think that at least 8-10 players can clinch the title.” Which half of the draw is more likely to produce the eventual winner?
