Players to Watch For
Carlos Alcaraz - Shaking off the French Open
Heartbreaking injuries have already been a hugely prevalent storyline in the young Carlos Alcaraz’s career, which means that there is much work that is needed to be done to make sure his body is in tip top shape.
After losing to Novak Djokovic in the French Open due to cramping, Alcaraz has clear problems with physicality in random spurts.
When he is healthy, he is possibly the best player in the world at the current time, and there is just so much more that was begging to be played last week in Paris.
Alcaraz’s game has not translated all that well to grass, a place where he lost to Jannik Sinner just last year in the Wimbledon second week.
Alcaraz has all the tools to be successful here, and just needs a few results to go his way in order to feel confidence and comfort.
Frances Tiafoe - Top 10 Baby
After clutching a significant three set victory over Jan-Lennard Struff in Stuttgart last week, Frances Tiafoe is more than capable of breaking out into the elite prospects of tennis.
Having been touted as one of the most talented youngsters by nearly every pro in his younger years, Tiafoe is finally putting it all together and delivering huge performances that are worth the price of admission.
On the grass especially, Tiafoe has a game that emphasizes using every single shot in the book and being fun.
Tiafoe now has some serious potential to enter the top five this season if he keeps up his form and makes a run at Wimbledon.
Andy Murray - At Home on the Grass
Andy Murray is far from his prime days on a tennis court, but he is still fighting and giving it all he has.
Now up to the near top 30 in the ATP Rankings, Murray has been on fire in the challenger’s scene winning nearly every tournament he has participated in the past two months.
Murray is now on a surface where he feels supremely comfortable, one which should bring in massive crowd support and hope for the future.
Murray will be a huge favourite in tons of matches over the next two weeks because of his success and knowhow of the grass.
