Preview

The day 7 sees off the start to some of the great matches being played. The centre court opens up with the match of the American Venus Williams who takes on Ana Konjuh in her 4th Round match. Venus is coming off some good wins her previous rounds but with recently defeating the Japanese Naomi Osaka 7-6 6-4. This tie should be one of the toughest faces by Williams this year as Ana Konjuh is also coming off with some great performances displayed.

Following Williams’ match are matches from the top seeds Andy Murray and Roger Federer. Andy Murray is the sole Brit male left in the competition and is looking in great shape to give some tough time to his competitors. He faces Benoit Paire of France and I don’t think the World No.1 would find it difficult to see it through.

Meanwhile, the Swiss is getting a hard match against Grigor Dimitrov, the 13th seed of the tournament. Dimitrov has been to his very best in this tournament so far and thus Federer should be prepared for some action but considering the experience Roger has played on this court, he should get past in this competing match.

Even Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are playing tomorrow as well against Gilles Muller and Adrian Mannarino respectively. Both are gonna face a tough tie but hopefully, there are very fewer chances of an upset being surged in their case as much as there are chances of an upset in Federer’s case.

Even the WTA stars Angelique Kerber, Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki and Johanna Konta will be seen in action as well. Konta is the sole Brit woman standing and will have a backing from the local crowd as well. She will need to be at her best in order to beat her opponent Caroline Garcia to make her maiden quarterfinals appearance at Wimbledon.

Meanwhile, Simona Halep is also having a tough tie against Victoria Azarenka and it will be one of the greatest matches till date at Wimbledon 2017 to watch for.
