2017 Wimbledon Bracket #1: Big Names Remain
Light on upsets so far in swinging London.
2017 Wimbledon hasn’t seen many major upsets on the men’s or women’s singles sides.
The top players in the world kept themselves mostly in tact in the early rounds in London. This should make for even better quality of play later, especially if the top seeds continue advancement on grass.
2017 Wimbledon Update: Men’s Singles Draw
Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Milos Raonic, Novak Djokovic, and Dominic Thiem are all still alive at Wimbledon as of Thursday morning. The biggest name to fall in the early going was Stan Wawrinka, who went one-and-done against Daniil Medvedev. Otherwise, Nick Kyrgios of Australia, the 20th seed, retired in his opening round match. France’s Lucas Pouille lost in the second round. Other top 30s, like Ivo Karlovic, also lost early, but carnage has spared the men’s top seeds so far.
We’re still a bit of a way off from any top men’s players meeting. For example, Roger Federer and Dominic Thiem may meet two rounds from now. You’ll be waiting a while to see those guys playing a Djokovic, Murray, or Nadal.
