Wimbledon Order Of Play Day 7
The 2023 Wimbledon Championships will kick off on Sunday, July 9th, 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: Djokovic v Hurkacz
Novak Djokovic’s recent victory over Stan Wawrinka at Wimbledon ended his three-match losing streak against the Swiss player at the Grand Slam level. Despite slow starts in previous Grand Slam campaigns, Djokovic now appears more focused and determined, creating an opportunity for him to potentially win a slam without dropping a set for the first time in his career.
Impressively, Djokovic has excelled in tiebreakers this year, winning 12 out of 13 played in Grand Slam tournaments alone, including during his title run at the French Open. His ability to dominate tiebreakers showcases his knack for delivering decisive blows to opponents on equal terms.
Moreover, Djokovic’s record at Wimbledon’s Centre Court is remarkable, as he hasn’t lost a match there in the past ten years. Breaking this streak would be a monumental task for any opponent, as the last time Djokovic experienced defeat on this prestigious court was in the 2013 championship match against Andy Murray.
On the other side, Hubert Hurkacz has shown promise by defeating Lorenzo Musetti in straight sets at Wimbledon. However, his performance throughout the year has been inconsistent, making it unlikely for him to pose a significant challenge to Djokovic, who leads their head-to-head encounters 5-0.
Considering Djokovic’s dominance and Hurkacz’s unconvincing form, the second seed is expected to have a comfortable victory in their upcoming match.

Highlighted match: Sinner v Galan
Jannik Sinner’s path to the Wimbledon semifinals has been incredibly favorable, with relatively easy opponents and minimal challenges. He has dropped only one set in his previous three matches against Juan Manuel Cerundolo, Diego Schwartzman, and Quentin Halys.
In the round of 16, he faces Daniel Elahi Galan, the world number 85, and is heavily favored to win.
Sinner’s recent luck is well-deserved after experiencing heartbreak earlier this year, including a five-set defeat to Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Australian Open and an injury that dashed his hopes of winning a Masters title in Miami.
Although he stumbled in the second round at the French Open, he has now reached the second week of a Grand Slam tournament once again, a stage he has consistently reached in recent years.
Last year, Sinner seized a golden opportunity by defeating Carlos Alcaraz and showcasing his potential against Novak Djokovic. On the other hand, Galan has defied expectations with his underdog victories, marking his best-ever performance in Grand Slam tournaments.
Considering their head-to-head record and Sinner’s form, he is expected to comfortably defeat Galan, especially on grass, as long as he maintains his physical condition throughout the match.
