London, Great Britain, 3 July 2022 | Leigh Rogers

Three Australian players have advanced to the third round in the Wimbledon 2022 gentlemen’s doubles competition.

John Peers and Slovak partner Filip Polasek progressed with a straight-sets win against Australian Jordan Thompson and Portugal’s Joao Sousa in second-round action today.

This is the sixth time that world No.16 Peers has made the third round at Wimbledon and is his best result since 2019.

All-Australian combination Matt Ebden and Max Purcell were also winners, overcoming Belgian Joran Vliegen and American Jackson Withrow in a second-round battle that extended three hours and 29 minutes.

This is the furtherest world No.31 Ebden has ever progressed in a Wimbledon doubles draw and is a second consecutive third-round appearance for world No.34 Purcell.

Peers had a successful day, also scoring a first-round win in the mixed doubles competition alongside Canada’s Gabriela Dabrowksi.

Sam Stosur and Ebden were locked at one-set apiece with Roland Garros 2022 finalists Ulrikke Eikeri of Norway and Vliegen when their first-round mixed doubles match was suspended due to poor light.
