Wimbledon 2011: The Most Intriguing Matchups for Day 2 at the Championships

At the Wimbledon Tournament on Monday, rain interrupted action, postponing several matches until Tuesday at all locations except Centre Court.

In 2009, a retractable roof was installed over the main court at Wimbledon for just such an occasion, ensuring that the top seeds would be able to complete their matches when scheduled.  

While Francesca Schiavone was struggling in her match with Jelena Dokic, rain interrupted action on Centre Court as fans and players took cover.  Tournament officials decided to close the roof after a short delay.

Action resumed on the main court, but not elsewhere on the grounds of the All England Club. Therefore, some matches will be rescheduled for Tuesday.

While we expect Roger Federer to get past Mikhail Kukushkin, Novak Djokovic to dispatch Jeremy Chardy and Caroline Wozniacki to overcome Arantxa Parra Santonja––there are several matches scheduled on Tuesday where the outcome is in doubt. 

Following are 10 of the most intriguing of the matchups scheduled for action on Tuesday at the All England Club.
