Preview

The day 6 at the centre court starts with action from one of the best matches till date in Wimbledon 2017 as the WTA top players, Timea Bacsinszky takes on the Poland national, Agnieszka Radwanska.

Radwanska hasn’t had a great season so far with some early exits from most of the tournaments she played while her counterpart has experienced a decent season after making it to the semis of Rolland Garros. The match will be an intriguing one to watch for as Radwanska looks forward to repeating her last win over Bacsinszky.

Following the Women’s matches are matches from the Wimbledon top seeds, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. Djokovic has a comparatively easier tie than Federer as the Nole takes on the Latvian, Ernests Gulbis. Djokovic has an upper hand considering his experience and presence of mind and shouldn’t find it challenging to get past this hurdle in his way.

Meanwhile, Federer is taking on the German, Mischa Zverev, the emerging player who has the potential to surge major upsets and surprise the audience. It would be a tough tie for the Swiss national as this might be marked as the start of his biggest hurdles on the way to his 8th Wimbledon title.

Speaking of the Court 1, it witnesses the action from the likes of Dominic Thiem, Caroline Wozniacki and Milos Raonic. The day starts off with the 6th seed, Milos Raonic taking on the Spaniard, Albert Ramos-Vinolas who is the 25th seed of this year’s Wimbledon. It would be a tough tie for Raonic citing the Spaniard’s potential to overthrow the big names with his powerful serves and forehand returns.

The dark horse of the Wimbledon 2017 race, Dominic Thiem is also in action for a place in the Round of 16. He battles against the American, Jared Donaldson.

Even Caroline Wozniacki is in action against the Estonian, Anett Kontaveit, the player who managed to outclass Caroline last time they met at Miami Maters. It wouldn’t be a tough tie for the Danish player considering her run of form this time round even though Kontaveit has the potential to turn the odds in her favour.

G. Dimitrov, A. Zverev, T. Berdych and Garbine Muguruza along with Angelique Kerber are also up for battle tomorrow for cementing their place in the Round of 16 of Wimbledon 2017.
