Wimbledon 2017: July 5th Gentlemen’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

CENTRE COURT (1 p.m. start)

[1] Andy Murray (GBR) vs Dustin Brown (GER) – I expect Brown to produce some highlights and to take risks, but Murray should win in 3 sets.

[4] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs Donald Young (USA) – Lefties don’t like playing lefties … One of the few things I can see the Young could draw upon when approaching this match.

No.1 COURT

[9] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs [Q] Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)

SHOW COURTS (11:30 a.m. start)

No.2 COURT

[12] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs [Q] Simone Bolelli (ITA)

[7] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs Florian Mayer (GER) – Cilic is playing better than he has in recent months.

No.3 COURT

Aljaz Bedene (GBR) vs  Damir Dzumhur (BIH)

[14] Lucas Pouille (FRA) vs [PR] Jerzy Janowicz (POL)  – JJ got a nice win, but this win would be really a good step toward regaining some confidence.  I don’t think it will happen.

COURT 12

[16] Gilles Muller (LUX) vs [Q] Lukas Rosol (CZE) – This is really interesting match between two guys who have posted nice results on grass.

[28] Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs  Jiri Vesely (CZE) – Would this even be an upset?

COURT 18

[24] Sam Querrey (USA) vs. Nikoloz Basilashvili (GEO)

[26] Steve Johnson (USA) vs. Radu Albot (MDA)

Field COURTS

COURT 8

[32] Paolo Lorenzi (ITA) vs Horacio Zeballos (ARG) 76 (3) 46 76 (8) 22 – to be completed (not before 12:30 p.m.)

COURT 14

[30] Karen Khachanov (RUS) vs  Thiago Monteiro (BRA)

Pierre-Hugues Herbert (FRA) vs Benoit Paire (FRA)

COURT 16

[18] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) vs Peter Gojowczyk (GER)

Daniil Medvedev (RUS)  vs [Q] Ruben Bemelmans (BEL) – It is hard to follow-up an upset with a win.

COURT 17

Kevin Anderson (RSA) vs Andreas Seppi (ITA)
