Wimbledon: Philipp vs Przysiezny in R1

24/06/13

Gentlemen's singles draw has been revealed for the third Grand Slam of the season, the Wimbledon, taking place in London, from June 24 to July 7.

128 players will compete during the fourteen days of the only grass court Major event. 

Philipp will face world no.127 Michal Przysiezny of Poland in the opening round, in their first career encounter.  

It will be Philipp’s seventh appearance at the All England Club. His best result in singles so far is third round in 2009 and 2010.

The 29-year-old was stopped in the second round last year by fellow German Florian Mayer (6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 2-6, 4-6).

2010 Wimbledon doubles champion (w/Melzer) could meet no.7 seed Czech Tomas Berdych in the third round.

Philipp has played only six main draw matches in 2013, mostly due to injuries, and has a 3-3 record on the season.
