Wimbledon 2023 turning into a nightmare

Three days into the slam and there are nine singles matches yet to be completed, seven of which have not yet begun. Most of the players will be forced to play on consecutive days which will allow them less preparation time. Lack of preparation and rest can also affect their results here at Wimbledon. On the other hand, players like Novak Djokovic, Iga Swiatek, and Jannik Sinner are already in the third round while some are yet to start their campaign at Wimbledon. Absolute chaos!
