Wimbledon 2023: Carlos Alcaraz wins decisively over Jeremy Chardy to start his campaign

Top-seeded Carlos Alcaraz defeated Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the opening round of the most renowned tennis tournament, Wimbledon, to get his quest for a first title underway.

The Spaniard defeated his helpless French opponent by scores of 6-0, 6-0, and 7-5 to go to the All-English championships’ second round.

The double bagle in the first two sets of the match demonstrates the difference in skill levels between the players as the 20-year-old easily defeated his 36-year-old veteran, who was unable to keep up with the top-ranked player in the world.

Day 2 of the grass-court major featured appearances by British and sporting royalty, including the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, an ardent supporter of the AELTC, who graced the center court. However, Roger Federer’s visit received a bigger reception than Middleton’s.

The passionate crowd cheered loudly as the Swiss maestro entered the Royal Box after winning an unprecedented eight gentlemen’s singles titles on the punishing grass court.

The English crowd erupted in deafening applause for the renowned Swiss player, who became intricately linked to the oldest grand slam in the world. The clapping lasted for more than a minute.

People who have had the good fortune to see the smooth operator in action have been made happy by the 41-year-old, who hung up his boots last year. Those who flocked to the posh London district of SW19 will never forget the powerful forehands and elegance-personified single-handed backhands that the Swiss maestro poured down on his opponents.

If he manages to retain his Wimbledon title this year, defending champion Novak Djokovic will have the opportunity to tie Roger Federer’s record of eight victories at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. On Monday, Djokovic defeated Argentine Pedro Cachin to start his campaign.

The 36-year-old Serbian, who last month won his 23rd major victory at Roland Garros to eclipse long-time rival Rafael Nadal for the most grand slam titles, may raise his total to 24 grand slam titles if he successfully defends the prized trophy at SW19.
