Wimbledon 2017: July 7th Gentlemen’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

CENTRE COURT (1 p.m. start)

[4] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs [30] Karen Khachanov (RUS) – Rafa is looking quite solid, but this could be a bit of a test.

[1] Andy Murray (GBR) vs [28] Fabio Fognini (ITA) – Fognini is a shot-maker who can get on a roll.  Murray has had a number of shakey losses in 2017.  Still, I don’t see many scenarios for this match to go 4 sets let alone be an upset.

No.1 COURT

[7] Marin Cilic (CRO) vs [26] Steve Johnson (USA) – If Johnson can hang with Cilic and keep the match close, pressure points might sway the match in his direction.  I think that won’t happen often enough to help Johnson.

No.2 COURT

[16] Gilles Muller (LUX) vs Aljaz Bedene (GBR)

[12] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) vs [24] Sam Querrey (USA) – I think Querrey will advance due to a gut feeling.

No.3 COURT

[9] Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs [18] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP)

COURT 12

Kevin Anderson (RSA) vs [Q] Ruben Bemelmans (BEL) – Mr Anderson was hard to defeat in the Matrix, and in tennis, his career is finding new life.

COURT 18

Benoit Paire (FRA) vs [PR] Jerzy Janowicz (POL) – The big man can win yet another round.
