Wimbledon 2022: Emma Raducanou makes center court debut, Andy Murray starts with win

Keep an eye on all the action as Wimbledon continues with Rafael Nadal, Iga Swiatek and Serena Williams in action on day two.

Nadal marked his return to Wimbledon for the first time since 2019 with a victory over Francisco Cerundolo, but it was far from easy for the 22-time Grand Slam champion. Nadal was on his way to a comfortable win before Cerundolo returned to win the third set. Nadal was desperate to be dragged into the decider, but he broke down in the fourth before quickly sealing a 6-4 6-3 3-6 6-4 win in over three and a half hours.

It came after his favorite in women’s singles, world number one Sviatek, opened her championship on Center Court with a straight set victory over Jana Fett. Day two sees more Wimbledon royals in action and Williams makes his long-awaited return. The seven-time Wimbledon champion is back in singles after being brutally forced out of her first round match at SW19 last year, and the 40-year-old third-place finisher on center court is looking to spark her comeback from a hamstring injury when she takes over Harmony Tang. Follow all the action from Day 2 live, including the latest results, reactions and analysis from the All England Club.
