TKJ's picks: TKJ"s faves Kostyuk, Alcaraz will win first rounders at Wimbledon

Here's my picks for Monday's Wimbledon. I know everyone will be surprised that I'm picking my two faves Marta Kostyuk and Carlos Alcaraz (both of whom I have going to the quarterfinals!).  You can see Marta's reaction to that in the pic above.

Let's do this:

Norrie d. Andujar in 3

Paire d. Halys in 4
