Day before the “Middle Sunday”, which is traditionally considered a rest day will make short preview what’s the most interesting things going around the All England Club.
Camila leads the h2h 2-1 with the most recent meeting coming in New Haven on hard courts last year. Wozniacki leads 1-0 in the matches played on Grass as she scored a three set win over the Italian in Eastbourne last year.
Having a 6-5 record vs Top 10 players, Camila surely seems to lift her game up against greater opposition. On any given day she can be considered as UnforceMila or GoatMila, as known in the Twitter community around. But jokes aside when on song she can smash lot of winners and makes life miserable for almost everyone, but taking risks leads to many unforced errors as well.
Despite a late wobble from the Dane in the latter stages of her previous match against Allertova she managed to come through in 2. She was leading 6-1,5-1 before Denisa stormed back to force a tiebreak, but was mainly because Caroline became really defensive and unforced errors started to creep in.
This could be quite close encounter, but what Camila will show up remain to be seen
Timea didn’t play on Grass courts before coming here in Wimbledon after her run to Roland Garros Semifinals. She however has great variety in her game and so far has not been tested much dispatching Goerges and Soler-Espinosa.
On other hand Sabine had to fight from set and a break down against McHale to even be here. Nerves from returning on Centre Court may have caused her this trouble as she finished the match with only 25 W and 35 unforced errors..
Her biggest weapon, the serve, wasn’t in the familiar booming style and not many free points were win by it.
Sabine needs improvement in order to take this as Timea is just too consistant from the back of the court and her mixed game could force the German out of her comfort zone.
End of the day this venue remains the best possible option for the German to make a deep run and she hasn’t lost before a QF since 2008…
Always entertaining Monfils takes on his compatriot Simon while trying to cut some of the ugly h2h deficit.
Simon leads the mutual meetings 5-1 with the last 2 being really close as Gael pushed him to the brink of defeat. Expecting a close one as well here and worth to mention that this will be their first match on Grass courts.
Both have played almost flawless with the lone bummer a dropped set to Kavcic by Simon in his previous round.
Gilles have gone beyond the 3rd round in Wimbledon only once, in 2009, while Gael has no 4-th round in his resume at all.
Odds are quite even put by the bookies and the show is guaranteed, but also a chance for someone to step up and make it deep into a tournament they don’t have much good memories about
