Wimbledon 2022: Ryan Benniston 1-1 Stevie Johnson

Peniston struggles to serve at the start and Johnson attacks the second serve to create two break points, but the Briton pulls himself together and struggles to equalise, before winning two quick points to hold his serve. That was an important moment in the beginning of the match.

Penniston has a tough job facing off against Stevie Johnson, the 32-year-old American who made a solid and limited career at the top level, peaking at number 21 in the world in 2016.

Johnson loves grass and his best singles performance at a Grand Slam came at Wimbledon in 2016, reaching the fourth round. He has two ATP 250 titles on the lawn, too.

Play has now been postponed until at least 12:30pm.

The surfaces are on Center and Court 1, while the surface is being checked on Court 3. The nerves of Ryan Benniston, who has been forced to wait for his second-ever Grand Slam match, will be on the nerves.

The Great Story of Ryan Peniston

First on pitch 3, when he finally starts playing, is Ryan Peniston, who has an exceptional story.

He said that having cancer as a child was a “blessing in disguise” as it made him “tougher as a player” after winning his first singles match in Wimbledon.

The 26-year-old wildcard was cheered by his parents, Paul and Penny, from the side rows on the crowded court as he watched his victory over Swiss Henri Laksonen.

At the age of one, Peniston was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a tumor near his stomach, which required surgery and chemotherapy years before regular checkups.

The former Essex-born player attributed his late brilliance in tennis to battling this as a young man, growing up “a foot smaller than all my peers”.
