Quarterfinal Predictions: Wimbledon Men’s Singles 2016

The 130th edition of the Wimbledon Championships in London is already underway. This is the third Grand Slam of the year; the previous two in Melbourne and Paris have been won by World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who is well on his way to a Golden Slam. He is already into the third round without much trouble here, and Rafael Nadal isn’t part of the tournament. Andy Murray, his closest contender, is on the other side of the draw, and they are favorites to repeat their Roland Garros final here in London.

Here are our quarterfinal – Final Eightpredictions for the men’s draw:

Quarter 1:

Djokovic is a no-brainer to reach the quarterfinal, and even win the tournament – which would be his 13th major championship, just one behind Nadal. He faced a slight challenge from French left-hander Adrian Mannarino in the second round, but came through in straight sets. His only other challenge on the way to the quarters would be his third-round match with possibly big-serving American Sam Querrey. David Ferrer isn’t much of a grass-court expert, but if he does get through his second round against Nicolas Mahut, he will face Djokovic in the fourth round. His opponent in an ideal world for the quarters would have been Nadal, if he were not injured. But this side of the draw is open now, with the possible fourth-round match between next-gen pretenders David Goffin and Milos Raonic to decide Djokovic’s quarterfinal opponent. 

Prediction: Novak Djokovic (1) v/s Milos Raonic (6)

Quarter 2:

Roger Federer, already through to the third round, could face the tricky Ukranian Alexandr Dolgopolov here, and perhaps Giles Simon in the fourth round. On the other side, Kei Nishikori could face Marin Cilic in the fourth round, if he gets past giant Ivo Karlovic on grass. 

Prediction: Roger Federer (3) v/s Kei Nishikori (5)

Quarter 3:

Upcoming star Dominic Thiem, who defeated Roger Federer at Birmingham, is favorite to reach the last 8, after reaching the semis in Paris. He could once again face Alexander Zverev, the teenager who defeated Federer at Halle – who also defeated Thiem in the final too – in the fourth round. The two youngsters would make for a fascinating matchup, but Zverev will have to get past the very consistent Tomas Berdych in the third round. Their opponent will likely be Swiss No. 2 Stan Wawrinka, who faces Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round, and could face either Bautista-Agut or Bernard Tomic in the fourth round.

Prediction: Dominic Thiem (8) v/s Stan Wawrinka (4)

Quarter 4:

There could be a Round 4 showdown between the two Frenchmen Richard Gasquet (who always does well on grass) and Jo Wilfred Tsonga. But it’s the other side that’s intriguing, with No. 2 Andy Murray expected to face the mercurial Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round. 

Prediction: Richard Gasquet (7) v/s Andy Murray (2)
