The second round of Wimbledon will kick off on Wednesday morning for both the men’s and women’s draws.
First round play was full of action as Serena Williams was able to progress through a difficult match against Harmony Tan in which she saved a match point, while Felix Auger-Aliassime and Hubert Hurkacz were knocked out on the men’s side.
