Action begins on Court 2 and some of the outside courts at 11 am local time and the Centre Court and Court 1 play kick-starts from 1.30 pm and 1 pm local time respectively.

Iga Swiatek might have been branded a clay court specialist by fans but her performance here at Wimbledon has been sterling. She takes on Tunisian Ons Jabeur who had begun her ride to the top since the beginning of 2020 and has now done well on a surface she hasn’t been renowned for.

Aryna Sabalenka is ranked fourth in the world but has never made it past the fourth round at a Grand Slam before this. This will be her chance when she takes on the highly-talented Elena Rybakina, who herself has shown signs of resurrection after having struggled through the early part of the season.

Matteo Berrettini has been tipped by a few as a player to watch out this tournament which is expected to be dominated by the world number one. And while he shouldn’t take Ilya Ivashka for granted, he has one more straightforward matches of the day to try and make the last eight.

Sebastian Korda and Karen Khachanov will face off in a fourth round match which could turn out to be a five-set thriller with both players having their sets of strengths and weaknesses.

The world number one Ash Barty hasn’t been at her best, probably still bothered by her injury but she has managed to get through to the fourth round. And up against her is the French Open winner, Barbora Krejcikova making this one of the matches to watch out. As they say, a final before the final?

Andrey Rublev and Marton Fucsovics have played each other in a single season the number of times most pairs don’t face off in their careers. And Rublev, having won each time, will start a favourite again. Can Fucosvics turn up with something different?

In a battle between the world number 10 and 12, there should typically be no real favourites but in this case, on grass, it’s Shapovalov who is bit of a favourite against Bautista-Agut. Shapovalov did defeat Andy Murray earlier in a clinical display that made the latter question the use of playing the sport!

Karolina Pliskova is a former world number one but has been falling off the radar thanks to some inconsistent performances. Still a fourth round appearance here should help her confidence but can she now overcome the wild-card entrant and first-timer Ludmilla Samsonova in this match?

Another match between unlikely fourth round players, Madison Keys and Viktorija Golubic. Keys is the higher pedigreed player obviously but till more recently was struggling to win matches and that’s something the 66th-ranked Golubic might look to exploit.

World number one Novak Djokovic should have no major issues in getting past Cristian Garin who is more of a clay-court specialist. Expect the heavy outright favourite Djokovic to slam past Garin in three.

Alexander Zverev has been one of the more consistent Next Gen players, especially at Grand Slams and here again he is looking for an opportunity to make the quarterfinals. Up against him is Felix Auger-Aliassime who has shown good rhythm but has typically struggled against the German in the past.

Down two sets, Medvedev, the world number two, made a remarkable recovery in his previous match to win and make it to the round of 16 here. Up against him is a player, the only one to have not lost his serve all tournament. Clearly a match that offers a lot of potential.

She did well on clay and now Badosa is forging her identity on grass as well as he plays in the fourth round here at Wimbledon for the first time. She takes on Karolina Muchova, another consistent player on the tour this year with her performances including an Australian Open semifinal this season.

Cori Gauff is on a march towards her second successive Grand Slam quarterfinal aged just 17 but standing in her way is a former champion Angelique Kerber, who more recently has shown excellent form.

Can the more experienced Kerber challenge the youth and talent of Gauff, who is the fourth favourite to win this outright at the moment.

Two of the unlikeliest players facing off in the fourth round; Ajla Tomljanovic coming off a feisty previous round win over Jelena Ostapenko while Britain’s Emma Raducanu, ranked 338th in the world, has already seen off Marketa Vondrousova and Sorana Cirstea. Interesting match-up in the offing.

Possibly the last match of the day will see the man most are waiting to watch, Roger Federer who has made an at-times sparkling, at-times struggling return to Wimbledon. He faces a challenging opponent in the form of Lorenzo Sonego, who will be a tough opponent but at the same time will be making his first ever fourth round appearance at Wimbledon.
