Marton Fucsovics executed an upset on the very first day at Wimbledon 2021. He thrashed nineteenth-seeded Jannik Sinner in the first-round encounter without much difficulty. After dropping the first set, the odds were clearly against Fucsovics, however, he turned things around in dramatic fashion winning the next three sets in a row.

Fucsovics scored seven aces in comparison to Jannik’s two and eventually found his opponent napping at several instances. Although Fucsovics came into Wimbledon after back to back unimpressive performances. He was knocked out of the Stuttgart Open 2021 in the very first round.

Even at the Eastbourne Open, Fucsovics couldn’t go any further than the second round. However, he has announced himself in grand style at Wimbledon. On the other hand, Jiri Vesely would also be high on confidence as well as he defeated Yannick Hanfmann in his first-round clash in straight sets.

Although Yannick Hanfmann took the third set to the tie-breaker, his efforts went in vain as he wasn’t able to win points at crucial instances. Vesely kept his cool under pressure and emerged victoriously, making his way into the second round at Wimbledon 2021.
