Highlighted match: Alcaraz v Berrettini
Matteo Berrettini’s unexpected improvement and remarkable fitness have drastically changed the dynamics of the top half of the Wimbledon draw. Despite initial doubts about his prospects in the tournament, Berrettini’s recent performances have been astounding. He had a slow start against Lorenzo Sonego, but he has since displayed exceptional form. Last year, after a long injury-induced break, Berrettini won nine consecutive matches on grass and claimed two ATP titles. However, he had to withdraw from Wimbledon due to COVID. In previous editions of the tournament, Berrettini suffered losses to Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, both multiple Wimbledon champions. Carlos Alcaraz, the top seed, faces his biggest test on grass against Berrettini, who is a stronger opponent compared to last year’s defeat to Jannik Sinner. Unless Berrettini experiences physical fatigue as the match progresses, he has a real chance of ending Alcaraz’s pursuit of revenge against Novak Djokovic.

Highlighted match: Dimitrov v Rune
Holger Rune and Grigor Dimitrov are set to face off in an intriguing clash at Wimbledon. Rune’s recent redemption at the tournament, coming back from a deficit to secure victory, showcased his unwavering determination and resilience. However, his inexperience and weaknesses on grass are evident, as he struggled against underdogs in earlier rounds.
On the other hand, Dimitrov has been a dominant force at Wimbledon, winning all his matches in straight sets and displaying a heightened level of confidence and consistency this season. With a proven track record on grass, including a Boys’ Wimbledon title and previous semifinal appearance, Dimitrov’s skills on this surface cannot be underestimated.
The head-to-head record stands at 0-0, and while Dimitrov is the superior grass player, the question remains whether he can perform at his highest level in significant matches. Rune’s determination may prove to be a challenge for Dimitrov, but the Bulgarian’s recent form and experience could give him the edge. It will be an exciting match to watch, especially to see if Dimitrov can deliver in a crucial encounter.

Eubanks v Tsitsipas
Stefanos Tsitsipas, known for his early exits at Wimbledon in previous years, has defied expectations in this year’s tournament. Despite arriving with little preparation or motivation, the Greek player has made it to the second week, achieving a rare feat for himself. A significant factor contributing to his success has been his favorable draw, with opponents lacking certain aspects that could challenge a top-5 player.
Having already achieved his career-best season at Grand Slam level, Tsitsipas reached the Australian Open final and the French Open quarterfinals earlier this year. However, his journey at Wimbledon has been historically limited, with only one previous attempt to reach the quarterfinals resulting in defeat.
On the other side of the court, Christopher Eubanks has shown impressive form and resilience throughout the tournament. Despite a discouraging start to the year, the American player has transformed his season into his best yet. His recent performances against top-ranked players, including an upset victory over world #13 Cameron Norrie, demonstrate his rising capabilities.
As the two players face each other for the first time, the pressure seems to be on Eubanks. The outcome of the match will rely on his ability to handle the pressure and maintain composure on the grand stage. With Tsitsipas’ strong game and current form, Eubanks will need to bring his A-game to trouble the Greek player on the grass courts of Wimbledon.
