Matches to Watch
Roger Federer vs. Xavier Malisse
The No. 3 player in the world won his last match in quite the dramatic fashion after Federer came back from two sets down to advance against the Frenchman, Julien Benneteau.
Such a gut-wrenching victory has not only left tennis fans asking not if but when Federer will get eliminated, it has also made Fed-Ex even more of a darling than he once was at the All England Club. No doubt fans will be cheering for Federer's even bigger comeback attempt: winning his seventh Wimbledon title.
Malisse is a viable opponent to upset Federer, but the two have met nine separate times, all going in Federer's favor. The biggest thing to be watched is how much Federer's exhausting comeback on Friday takes its toll on him in his next match this Monday.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. Mardy Fish
It would be huge for an American to win Wimbledon considering its been over a decade since Pete Sampras did it. Mardy Fish is one of two to represent the red, white and blue left at the All England Club.
However, Fish will have to earn it in his fourth-round match.
Tsonga is primed and ready to take his first major at Wimbledon this year. After Federer was almost eliminated and Djokovic has been threatened early in the tourney, there could be nobody standing in his way moving forward this time around.
The Frenchman has a great shot to surprise the world this year and his match with Fish might be his next step towards such an accomplishment. Tsonga made it all the way to the semifinals in 2011, so he is no stranger to important matches at the All England Club.
Kim Clijsters vs. Angelique Kerber
It's a bittersweet tournament for Clijsters as the former world's No. 1 is making her last go-around in the sport. According to the Associated Press, per Yahoo! Sports, Clijsters will retire at the culmination of this year's U.S. Open.
She will be a fan favorite after advancing to the fourth round following a match where her opponent, Vera Zvonareva, had to retire before the end of the match, per the same report. Clijsters has a chance to make quite the memory and impression upon her exit from the sport.
But Kerber won't be a pushover by any stretch for Clijsters. Kerber has won all of her matches in straight sets and has had little incident on the way. The No. 8 player in the world will make Clijsters earn every point in her quest to win her first Wimbledon.
