Wimbledon 2022: Felix Auger-Aliassime vs. Maxime Cressy Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Wimbledon as Felix Auger-Aliassime takes on Maxime Cressy in the first round on Tuesday, June 28th, 2022.

Will Felix Auger-Aliassime succumb to the big-serving Maxime Cressy at Wimbledon? On paper, the Canadian looks poised to reach the second round, but this could be a more complicated matchup for him. Who will prevail?

In fairness, being a seeded player at a Grand Slam comes with its own headache. You are always looking over your shoulder knowing full well one of the players you draw will most likely be a much sterner test. For the case of Felix Auger-Aliassime, this was the kind of fixture he would have been keen to avoid. A meeting against Maxime Cressy is asking for trouble particularly on the faster surface of Wimbledon. And given just how vulnerable the Canadian looked in Den Bosch, this could be a very long afternoon for the 21-year-old.

Maxime Cressy, meanwhile, has put together a career-best season on the ATP Tour in 2022, highlighted by reaching two finals in Melbourne and more recently in Eastbourne. Cressy, who now sits at a career-high ranking of World No. 45, lost in a tight three-setter to Taylor Fritz in the Eastbourne final. That means the wait for a first ATP title will go on as the American continues to make serious inroads. Cressy will be playing in the main draw of Wimbledon for the first time.

Felix Auger-Aliassime and Maxime Cressy have not played each on the ATP Tour. Tuesday’s match at Wimbledon will be their first official meeting. Cressy’s form has gone from strength to strength in recent weeks and has slight chance of pulling off the upset. He will need to serve impeccably well (which is always the case) and his net point play will need to be top notch. But If Auger-Aliassime can remain patient from the baseline and take his chances when they present themselves, the Canadian young gun should wear down the towering American.
