Wimbledon | Men’s Quarter-final day
What to look out for today
The big three in the men’s game are all in action on Wednesday, Day 9 of The Championships, when temperatures are expected to reach 24 degrees and there is a chance of showers.
The men’s quarter-finals feature Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal all in action.
The trio will be favourites to fill 3 of the 4 semi-final berths, with the other going to Guido Pella or Roberto Bautista Agut, while ‘Murrena’, Andy Murray & Serena Williams, are back on court in the mixed doubles.
Centre Court, 1pm start
- Novak Djokovic v David Goffin
- Kei Nishikori v Roger Federer
No 1 Court, 1pm start
- Guido Pella v Roberto Bautista Agut
- Sam Querrey v Rafael Nadal
No 2 Court, 11am start
- Andy Murray/Serena Williams v Bruno Soares/Nicole Melichar
With no Brits left in the singles draws, Murray is flying the flag in the mixed doubles. ‘Murrena’ – the nickname chosen by Williams – have breezed through the first 2 rounds, but face a tougher test against top seeds Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar on Court 2.
There are two last Brits standing, however, in the junior singles – Arthur Fery in the boys and Matilda Mutavdzic in the girls. Both play on No 11 Court today, while there are Brits in the junior doubles events also around the grounds.
Pick of the day
Federer’s showdown with Kei Nishikori is the only one of the 4 matches to have tallied with the seedings. 8-time winner Federer bowed out at the same stage last year to Kevin Anderson, while Nishikori won their last meeting at the ATP Finals in December.
