Wimbledon 2022: Fabio Fognini vs. Tallon Griekspoor Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Wimbledon as Fabio Fognini takes on Tallon Griekspoor in the first round on Monday, June 27th, 2022.

The mercurial Fabio Fognini will be hoping to avoid a second Grand Slam defeat at the hands of Tallon Griekspoor. The Italian has not lost a first round at Wimbledon since 2013, so there is definitely massive value in backing the underdog in this matchup.

Fabio Fognini did not partake at any grass court tournaments prior to this year’s Wimbledon. Historically, Fognini hasn’t needed to fine tune his game, chipping in only by playing at exhibition tournaments. But surprisingly, he has not faltered in the first round of Wimbledon since 2013, nearly 10 years ago. And for added context, he has made the third round in each of his last three visits to SW19. He will be keen to avoid falling to the same opponent in a second Grand Slam tournament, having done so against Tallon Griekspoor at this year’s Australian Open.

Tallon Griekspoor, meanwhile, comes to Wimbledon on the back of a solid grass court season. The Dutchman has lost narrowly in each of his last three tournaments on the surface, most recently at the Mallorca Open where he made the quarterfinals. Griekspoor has showcased his talent in dribs and drabs on the ATP’s main tour. Last year he performed with distinction on the Challenger level, and has since managed to significantly vault in rankings, peaking at a career-high World No. 53.

Tallon Griekspoor leads Fabio Fognini 1-0 in their head-to-head, winning the aforementioned first-round meeting at the Australian Open in January. After a tough start to life on the ATP Tour, Griekspoor has managed to turn his season back on track in recent months. He comes to Wimbledon as the favorite in this match, and although the price on Fognini is too hard to ignore, he might not be up to speed transitioning from clay to grass.
