The Italian will thus have the opportunity to go much further in the main draw, especially if he should not stumble in the always treacherous first rounds. The first opponent will be the 31st seed Mariano Navone, also not very experienced on this type of fields.

A tennis player who, however, surprised everyone on earth during the year and should not be underestimated. During a long interview with Sky Sport, Sonego praised his compatriot Jannik Sinner, who won the Australian Open at the beginning of this year.

Lorenzo Sonego gave an interesting interview to Sky Sport on the eve of the debut at the Wimbledon Championships: "I prepared well, I did two preparation tournaments (Halle and Eastbourne) with good feelings.

We’re working on getting further into the network and trying to control the exchange. Here it is important because moving really puts everyone in trouble. Service and aggressive shots make it even more on this surface.

Navone is a very continuous player, with a great attitude. It will be important to approach the game, play every point without distractions and have the continuity you need to win these challenges.

It will be fundamental. We must put our feet inside the field and command. He is one of the tennis players used to respond well to the service, the variations will be another crucial aspect". Sonego then praised the blue movement that continues to give satisfaction to fans: "We are so many at last, what we are experiencing is really very nice for Italian tennis.

Even in the female we have grown, Paolini is getting good results and is carrying out that movement, as is Jannik Sinner in ours. I’m sure it’s two people who charge us a lot, there are many young people who are growing up.

It will be nice to share this tournament with them and try to do well. In football it did not go very well and we will try with tennis to do better".
