Wimbledon 2011 Player Profile: Karol Beck
Every Grand Slam, I feature players who are ranked outside the Top 100 who have reached the second round. That is not an easy feat to do since to be outside the Top 100, you'd have to qualify first and then have a little luck in the draw for the first round so that you can have a chance to reach the second round.
Another player who reaches the second round, but is ranked outside the Top 100 is Slovakia's Karol Beck, who is currently ranked #125. Beck had to qualify to reach the main draw and then was able to draw Carlos Berlocq of Argentina in the first round, who is ranked #70. They had a tough five-set match where Beck had the upper hand.
In the second round, he will meet #41 ranked Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, so expect another tough match for Beck.
