Wimbledon 2022 LIVE: Cancer survivor Ryan Peniston on the court ahead of Djokovic, Raducanu, Murray

Wimbledon 2022: Emma Raducanu wins center court debut as Andy Murray starts with victory

Wimbledon enters matchday three at the All England Club with Emma Raducanu, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic in the lead, following Serena Williams’ dramatic defeat last night.

Today’s order of play sees Raducanu back after his center court debut and looking to move past Caroline Garcia, with Murray set to be third at center with the prospect of late drama against the great John Isner. The home favorites are expected after Djokovic’s opener against 26-year-old Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis.

Cameron Norrie (vs Jaume Munar), Heather Watson (vs Qiang Wang) and Harriet Dart (vs Rebeka Masarova) will be looking to maintain the momentum of an impressive first two days for British players at SW19, as will Ryan Peniston, the 26-debutant year-old who won his first Grand Slam victory in the first round. He will first face the experienced American Steve Johnson on Court 3.

Elsewhere, exciting Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz (against Tallon Griekspoor) and women’s world No. 2 Ons Jabeur (against Katarzyna Kawa) will hit courts 2 and 3 respectively this afternoon, while Wimbledon champions Angelique Kerber Garbine Muguruza will also feature on Court 2.

Wimbledon 2022: Ryan Peniston 1-1 * Stevie Johnson

Peniston initially struggled with his serve and Johnson attacked on the second serve to create a few break point opportunities, but the Briton rallied and fought for the devil, before earning two quick points to hold onto his serve. It was an important moment at the start of the match.

Wimbledon 2022: Ryan Peniston* 0-1 Stevie Johnson

Stevie Johnson serves first and picks up a fairly quick win at 30 Peniston ends the game with a throwback thrown into the net. Hopefully the nerves have been shaken and he can settle down quickly.

Rain delays begin at Wimbledon

Peniston faces an uphill battle against Stevie Johnson, a 32-year-old American who produced a solid and low-key career at the highest level, peaking at No. 21 in the world in 2016.

Johnson loves grass and her best Grand Slam singles performance came at Wimbledon in 2016, reaching the fourth round. He also has a few ATP 250 titles on grass.

Rain delays begin at Wimbledon

The game is now delayed until at least 12:30 p.m.

The roofs are in place on Center and Court 1, while on Court 3 a surface inspection is in progress. Nerves will be on edge for Ryan Peniston, who has to wait for his second Grand Slam match.

The remarkable story of Ryan Peniston

First on court 3, when play finally begins, is Ryan Peniston, who has an amazing story.

He said having childhood cancer was a “blessing in disguise” for making him “tougher as a player” after winning his first singles match at Wimbledon.

The 26-year-old wildcard was cheered loudly by his parents, Paul and Penny, from the sidelines of a packed court watching his triumph over Switzerland’s Henri Laaksonen.

At the age of one, Peniston was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a tumor near her stomach, which required surgery and chemotherapy before years of regular checkups.

The Essex-born player has previously attributed his late blossoming in tennis to his struggle with it as a youngster, as he grew “a foot smaller than all my peers”.

Rain delays begin at Wimbledon

Play will now be delayed until at least 12:15 a.m. after a series of mini drizzles soaked Wimbledon and greased the many courts which hopefully had their covers removed after the heaviest downpour ended around 11 a.m.

Positioning myself on court 3 this morning, where there is no shelter from the rain, was a big mistake.
