THE BALL – Nuno Borges picked up for the main frame of Wimbledon… and there could be a Portuguese duel (Tennis)

Written by admin

Portuguese tennis player Nuno Borges has joined João Sousa in the main frame at Wimbledon. ATP-ranked 123rd maiato took advantage of the forfeit of Marin Cilic, the 14th seeded London Grand Slam who tested positive for Covid-19, and was drafted for the main frame as a ‘lucky loser’ .

The departure of the experienced Croatian thus opens the doors to Wimbledon for the first time in his career for Nuno Borges and the Portuguese will face the American Mackenze McDonald in the first round. If he wins, it could give rise to a duel between the Portuguese in the second round, since the winner of this duel will face João Sousa or Richard Gasquet.
