Carlos Alcaraz v Mark Lajal: How to watch, TV channel, start time and head-to-head stats

Defending champion Carlos Alcaraz will get his Wimbledon Championships underway on Monday when he faces Mark Lajal in the first round of the men's singles.

Alcaraz claimed his second Grand Slam title when beating Novak Djokovic in a five-set thriller at SW19 in 2023 and he comes into this year's Championships on the back of his success at the French Open.

The Spaniard opens his title defence against Estonian Lajal, who will be making his debut appearance in the main draw of a Grand Slam.

World number three Alcaraz has reached at least the quarter-final stage on his last six appearances at Grand Slams, with three of those ending in title successes.

The 21-year-old has two titles to his name this year - triumphing at Indian Wells and the French Open - but he warmed up for Wimbledon by losing to Britain's Jack Draper in the last-16 at Queen's Club.

Lajal has made it into the main draw of a Grand Slam event for the first time after coming through qualifying, seeing off Francesco Passaro, Henrique Rocha and James Duckworth.

The Estonian is currently ranked at number 262 in the world, although he did break into the top 200 towards the end of last year.

This will be the first-ever meeting between these two 21-year-olds on the ATP Tour.
