Monday, June 13:
Big blow for Grigor Dimitrov who offers left-hander Cameron Norrie, TDS 3, 6/7 6/1 6/4. Jack Draper, the local, guest, buys a Taylor Fritz, TDS 4, very disappointing, 6/3 6/2.
Alex de Minaur (AUS), always dangerous, eliminates in two sets, the giant Reilly Opelka (USA / TDS 8) 6/4 6/4.
Marin Cilic, Alexander Bublik and Alejandro Davidovich Folina also qualified for T2.
Tuesday, June 14
Diego Schwartzman, TDS 5, who is by no means a lawn tennis player, lost to qualifier Sam Querrey (USA) 6/1 6/4. The Habs Quentin Halys, in a match between qualified, is beaten by Emil Ruusuvuori 6/4 6/7 6/4.
A little later Ryan Peniston, 180th in the world, 26 years old, a Briton raised on grass, offers himself in two rounds to Roland Garros finalist Casper Ruud 7/6 7/6. Peniston is taking part in the first ATP tournament of his career this week!
Stanislas Wawrinka, in warrior mode, eliminated the whimsical Frances Tiafoe (USA) in three contested sets, 7/6 6/7 7/6 after 2h48 of the match. Matteo Berettini, on his way from S’Hertogenbosch, sweeps past Daniel Evans, recent winner of a Challenger on grass 6/3 6/3.
We still note the success of Filip Krajinovic against a Jenson Brooksby who no longer finds the level of play displayed this winter. Cerundolo, Kudla and Van de Zandschulp also qualified for the 1/8th.
Wednesday, June 15
The Spanish warrior Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, disappointing in Rome then at Roland Garros, finds colors by offering himself the talented Alex de Minaur in 1/8th, 4/6 6/4 7/5.
Marin Cilic, an all-surface player with his flat shots, eliminates a concerned Alexander Bublik (KAZ) 7/6 7/5. The surprise of the day comes to us once again from the Netherlands with Botic Van de Zandschump winning over Grigor Dimitrov 7/6 6/3.
Nice shot also for the qualifier Emil Ruusuvuori (FIN) dominating against Jack Draper (AUS / Guest) 6/2 7/6.
Thursday June 16
Ranked 35th in the world, the American Tommy Paul is one of these unknown but talented players. Stan Wawrinka paid the price this afternoon by losing heavily 6/4 6/1.
Filip Krajinovic, who had been discreet for several weeks, distinguished himself by beating Sam Querrey (USA) 4/6 6/3 6/4. Matteo Berettini, coming close to the exit against the surprising Denis Kudla (USA) manages to tip the match in the tie break of the 2nd set won 7 points to 5, the score of the match: 4/6 7/6 6/4 .
For Ryan Peniston, rather lucky in view of his opponent of the day, the Argentinian Francisco Cerundolo, the dream continues with a victory 6/0 4/6 6/4
Friday, June 17: The 1/4 finals
Ryan Peniston (GBR) vs. Filip Krajinovic (SER): 6/4 3/6 3/6
The experienced Serbian, 30, 48th in the world, puts an end to the dream course signed by this totally unknown Briton a few days ago;
Emil Ruusuvuori (FIN) vs. Marin Cilic (CRO) : 6/7 4/6
The step was a little too high for the Finnish hope, out of qualifying. He comes up against the Croatian wall which rises for the 6th time in his career in Queen’s half
Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (ESP) vs. Botic Van de Zandschulp (HOL) : 2/6 4/6
Dutch tennis is doing well on grass. After Van Rijthoven’s feat last week, his teammate easily climbed into the semi-finals against an overwhelmed opponent.
Tommy Paul (USA) vs. Matteo Berrettini (ITA) : 4/6 2/6
The solid Italian continues his series of victories in a rather impressive way. Hooked by the American up to 4/4 in the first set, he will then increase his level and punish his rival.
Saturday June 18: The 1/2 finals
Filip Krajinovic vs. Marin Cilic: 6/3 6/3
Surprise in this Serbo-Croatian confrontation with the clear victory of a confident Krajinovic. Following a rather open table, he improved over the laps before dominating the experienced Cilic.
Never titled in his career, he will play his 5th final on the circuit.
Botic Van de Zandschulp vs. Matteo Berrettini : 4/6 3/6
Winner last week in Stuttgart, the Italian continues his impressive series of victories on this surface where he seems to fly and especially walk on his rivals. Finalist last year at Wimbledon, he again appears as big outsiders for the 2022 edition.
Sunday June 19: Final
Filip Krajinovic vs. Matteo Berrettini : 5/7 4/6
Exceptional performance for the Italian player who, as we recall, returned to competition last week after a 10-week break. He will, for his return, win in Stuttgart and succeed today in winning the title in London.
A rare feat that says a lot about Berrettini’s skills on grass. He won without shaking, relying on a powerful service and a forehand that we no longer present his 7th career title, the 4th on grass, the 2nd at Queen’s after the 2021 edition.
We don’t forget his final last year at Wimbledon! A skewer of performance that makes him the No. 1 outsider of the English Grand Slam behind the monsters that are Djokovic and Nadal.
