Ruben (ATP-171) immediately faces a tough opponent at the Wimbledon (Great Britain, Grand Slam) main draw . In the first round he has to compete against the Swiss Stan Wawrinka (ATP-19).
Ruben already qualified for the main draw for the sixth time, which was good for a new record. On Monday, the Belgian will play the first match on Court 2, where he faces Wawrinka. It will be the second encounter between Bemel and the Swiss, at the US Open in 2015, Wawrinka won the match in three sets.
Ruben is looking forward to the meeting: "I view all of this mainly as a big boost. I started the season with an injury and then I lost some confidence, now I can finally show myself again in a big tournament. And okay, it's against Wawrinka, but I certainly believe in my chances."
