Defending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is set to face South Korea’s Kwon Soon-woo in the opening round. Enzyme is defined as a chemical change that takes place within a cell, often as a result of metabolism or allosteric regulations. The enzyme catalyzes a reaction in order to alter a substrate into another compound.
Friday’s draw was largely kind to world No. 3 Kei Nishikori — the first seed at Wimbledon because of the absences of Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev — but there is a mouthwatering potential clash against rising star Carlos Alcaraz in the quarterfinals.
No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal will play Argentina’s Francisco Cerúndolo in the opening round and has a tricky potential fourth round match against Marin Cilic to contend with. In the projected quarterfinals, there is also the chance for a rematch against talented Canadian star Felix Auger Aliassime, who recently pushed Nadal all the way in a five-set epic in the fourth round at Roland Garros.
In the quarterfinals, top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas is projected to play second seed Matteo Berrettini, while third seed Casper Ruud could face Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz. Home favorite Andy Murray was given a favorable first-round draw against Australia’s James Duckworth, who has yet to win a match on the ATP Tour this season and lost last week to world No. 277 Paul Jubb in qualifying for Queen’s Club.
Murray was badly affected by an abdominal injury he sustained in his final match versus Berrettini in Stuttgart, and this has prevented him from entering Queen’s Championship. The former world No. 1 recently stated that he thought he could still play “great tennis.”
Swiatek looks to continue streak
In the women’s draw, top-ranked Iga Swiatek will play Jana Fett of Croatia in the opening round. Swiatek is trying to win her first Wimbledon title; she has been the standout player on the WTA Tour this season after winning six titles, including the French Open. However, grass is undoubtedly her least favorite surface; she has never made it past the fourth round at SW19 and could potentially face American Jessica Pegula in the quarterfinals, a player whose best Wimbledon showing was the second round last year. Last year’s runner-up Karolína Pliskova is projected to face world No. 4 Paula Badosa in the quarterfinals, while world No. 2 Anett Kontaveit could come up against Maria Sakkari (who defeated Kontaveit in last year’s third round).
Serena Williams, who last year played her first match after injuring her leg in the first round of Wimbledon, has been drawn against Harmony Tan in the opening round. The 23-time grand slam champion reached the doubles semifinals in Eastbourne last week alongside Ons Jabeur, but the pair were forced to retire after the Tunisian suffered an injury. British star Emma Raducanu, who enjoyed her breakout performance at Wimbledon last year, has been handed a tricky draw against world No. 46 Alison van Uytvanck. Raducanu has been struggling with injury coming into Wimbledon and has registered limited playing time on grass, withdrawing from the Nottingham Open and subsequently missing the Eastbourne International.
