Wimbledon Men’s Quarter-Finals Preview

Wimbledon Men’s Quarter-Finals Preview


Novak Djokovic vs. Kei Nishikori

The Serbian looks to finally be back to his old self in breezing through the tournament with dropping only one set.

Kei Nishikori became the first Japanese man to reach the quarters at Wimbledon in 23 years.  His most impressive win came with defeating Nick Kyrgios in the third round in straight sets.

Nishikori will be hoping to reverse recent history with Novak.  He has lost twice to Novak this year on clay (Madrid and Rome).

Head to head Novak leads 13-2.  

It will take a lot for Nishikori to try to thwart off the three-time Wimbledon champ but he is known for being a straight-up battler.

Winner:  Djokovic in 4 sets


Rafael Nadal vs. Juan Martin Del Potro

The World No. 1 has eased through the tournament without dropping a set, and has reached his first quarter-finals at Wimbledon since 2011.  

He will face a player in surging form in Del Potro.  Del Potro has won 2 titles this year (Indian Wells and Acapulco).

Nadal and Del Potro met in the semi-finals at last years US Open and at the French Open this year with Nadal winning both matches.  

Head to head Nadal leads 10-5.

Del Potro is looking very comfortable on grass, as is Nadal.  This one will most likely be the most competitive of the day.

Winner:  Nadal in 5 sets


Roger Federer vs. Kevin Anderson

Like Nadal, the eight-time Wimbledon champion has cruised through the tournament without losing a set.  In fact, Federer has now won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon.

Roger is the clear favorite to win the tournament but Anderson has been playing a great all-around game as of late.  He made his first grand slam final last year at the US Open, where he lost to Nadal.

Federer leads the head to head at 4-0.

Anderson will be the toughest test so far for Roger but the Swiss man will prevail.

Winner:  Federer in 3 sets


John Isner vs. Milos Raonic

The American has reached his second quarter-final here and is a huge threat thanks to his blistering serve.  He leads the tournament with 138 aces.

Raonic is right behind Isner in second with 117 aces, and has made it to the quarters here in three of the last four years.  

Isner leads the head to head at 3-1.

Raonic has the experience of making it to a Wimbledon final but Isner wins so many free points on his serve.  Expect multiple tiebreak sets in this one.

Winner:  Raonic in 5 sets.
