Wimbledon Order Of Play Day 6
The 2023 Wimbledon Championships will kick off on Saturday, July 8th, marking the start of the third Grand Slam tournament of the year. As the players descend on the All England Lawn and Tennis Club, the Wimbledon order of play for day 6 has been confirmed, promising an exciting line-up of first-round matches.

Highlighted match: Carlos Alcaraz vs Nicolas Jarry
Carlos Alcaraz’s second-round performance at Wimbledon should not be viewed as a positive step towards achieving a significant breakthrough. Despite being the world number one player, Alcaraz finished the match with more unforced errors than winners, which is below expectations.
Although Alcaraz encountered difficulties on grass earlier this year against Arthur Rinderknech, he showed improvement and eventually claimed the title. Similarly, he achieved the same scoreline in the second round at Wimbledon last year, but fell short in the round of 16 against Jannik Sinner.
In the matches he has won this season, Alcaraz has only lost seven sets. However, it’s worth noting that one of those sets was dropped against Nicolas Jarry, who was ranked #139 at the time. Jarry is currently enjoying a career-best season on grass and achieved his best result at Wimbledon by defeating Jason Kubler.
While Alcaraz leads the head-to-head against Jarry, any match against a big server on grass can be challenging. Alcaraz will need to perform closer to his potential to secure victory.

Highlighted match: Zverev vs Berrettini
Matteo Berrettini’s surprising transformation at Wimbledon has made him a formidable threat to his opponents. Despite facing tough competition in the early rounds, he has showcased remarkable form, earning victories against strong players like Lorenzo Sonego and Alex de Minaur.
Berrettini’s impressive performance against de Minaur has caught the attention of many, elevating his status as a serious contender for the Wimbledon title. His track record on grass courts has been noteworthy in recent years, further solidifying his position as a top performer.
Although concerns about his fitness and limited match practice initially led to underestimation, Berrettini has proven himself on the grandest stages before. In 2021, he reached the Wimbledon final, finishing as the runner-up to Novak Djokovic, while in 2019, he made it to the round of 16 before being stopped by Roger Federer.
In the upcoming third round, Alexander Zverev faces a daunting challenge against Berrettini, a former Wimbledon runner-up. Zverev’s journey has been relatively smooth so far, but he has yet to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. Even if he overcomes Berrettini, he may encounter the world No. 1, Carlos Alcaraz, in the next round.
Despite Zverev’s 4-1 lead in their head-to-head record, Berrettini’s grass-court prowess and fitness level will play a crucial role in determining the outcome of the match.

Highlighted match: Tiafoe vs Dimitrov
Grigor Dimitrov has been impressive in his Wimbledon campaign so far, reaching the third round with ease. He has shown excellent grass-court skills, good form, and has had a favorable draw, resulting in minimal resistance. Dimitrov only dropped four games in the first round against Sho Shimabukuro and 11 games in the second round against Ilya Ivashka.
This year, Dimitrov has displayed a heightened level of confidence, leading to notable results, particularly in Grand Slam tournaments. In both the Australian Open and French Open, he advanced to the third round without losing a single set, with his only defeats coming against top players Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev.
With a record of six wins and one loss, Dimitrov is enjoying his most successful grass season since 2017, where he reached the round of 16 in Wimbledon. His next opponent, Frances Tiafoe, has also performed well in this year’s Wimbledon, winning all six sets played so far. However, Tiafoe faced tougher challenges in Yibing Wu and Dominic Stricker.
While Dimitrov has a 2-1 lead in their head-to-head encounters, his recent performance has been inconsistent, making it difficult to predict his form on any given day. Nonetheless, if both players perform at their best, Dimitrov’s superior grass-court skills may give him an advantage in the match.
