Maxime Cressy will meet Jack Sock in the Second Round of the 2022 Wimbledon Championships. The match is scheduled to be played on Thursday June 30th, 2022.

Maxime Cressy produced one of the shocks of the tournament when he defeated the sixth seeded Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime in four extremely tough sets. Auger-Aliassime was considered a dark horse to win the entire tournament so it really was a shock to see him exit in the First Round. However, when you look at Cressy’s recent form, it was perhaps not all that surprising. The huge serving American has simply been outstanding, reaching his first ATP Final in Eastbourne and is seemingly peaking at the right time. When he is serving well he can be almost unstoppable, and his unique net-rushing style is very effective on this surface, especially since most players are not used to it. He is the favorite here against former top 10 player Jack Sock, and it will take a huge effort from the American to defeat him here.

Jack Sock is currently ranked #103, a far cry from his career-high of #8. The American has suffered mightily with injuries over the past few years, and it is great to see him back on the comeback trail. After Qualifying for this year’s Wimbledon Championships, he made the most of his opportunity by defeating Bernabe Zapata Miralles in straight sets. While that win was impressive, his opponent is a clay court specialist so it is hard to read too much into that win. As was the case for most of his career, he will be heavily reliant on his serve and forehand here, as well as his net skills. He comes up against the in-form Maxime Cressy who is simply on a tear recently, and Sock will not have much time to adjust to his unique style of play.

This match is potentially a tricky one for Maxime Cressy, but it is difficult to see him losing here. Jack Sock is a highly experienced player that has a solid game for this surface, but Cressy is simply in the form of his life, and will make life very difficult for Sock here. Sock has never been the best returner, and should struggle mightily against one of the most difficult players to break on the tour. I expect Sock to give it his all and may steal a set in a breaker, but Cressy will win here and march on to the Third Round at the Wimbledon Championships.
