Wimbledon Schedule: After Middle Sunday, All Survivors To Play On Day 7

Sam BlumCorrespondent IJune 28, 2010

After the middle Sunday, all the remaining players will take the court in a day that some consider to be the best day of tennis in the whole sport. 

Wimbledon Schedule Day 7:

Centre Court starting at 8:00 a.m. ET:

1. Roger Federer (1) vs. Jurgen Melzer (16)

Although these two don't have much experience against each other, one should still expect a quality match showing off two seasoned veterans. Melzer is currently peaking in his career as he is coming off a semifinal trip at the French Open. Federer is struggling, but just recently took care of Arnaud Clement fairly easily. 

2. Serena Williams (1) vs. Maria Sharapova (16)

Serena is playing her best tennis on her favorite surface. Sharapova has had a great tournament flying somewhat under the radar, but the spotlight will certainly be on these two stars tomorrow. 

3. Sam Querrey (18) vs. Andy Murray (4)

I am personally most excited for this match mostly because it will be a tremendous test for the young American, and it will be very interesting to see if he is up to it. Murray will be the favorite and the more talented, but on grass, a player like Sam Querrey tends to have an advantage.

No. 1 Court starting at 8:00 a.m. ET:

Kim Clijsters (8) vs. Justine Henin (17)

Just a couple years ago this match could just as easily been a final. However, because of lower seeding due to lack of play, the draws made this match a fourth rounder. People have been anticipating it since the draws came out, and it should be interesting to see how the Belgians square up.

Novak Djokovic (3) vs. Lleyton Hewitt (15)

I have to say that this match does not intrigue me. Both players are talented but I have nothing found anything too exciting when watching either of these players. That being said, they match up well, and when that is the case, anything can happen.

Paul-Henri Mathieu vs. Rafael Nadal (2)

Nadal has been great against the veteran, who has gotten though with a couple hard fought matches. Nadal should be fine, but then again, he should have been fineagainst Robin Hasse and Phillip Petzschner. 

Court two starting at 7:00 a.m. ET:

Jarmila Groth vs. Venus Williams (2)

Jarmila Groth has a great future, and has been playing outstanding tennis, but for Venus Williams, a player like Groth does not pose much of a threat.

Caroline Wozniacki (3) vs. Petra Kvitova

Petra is a solid player and is slowly making a name for herself, however, Wozniacki is doing that quickly, and is playing just outstandingly. This will be close than many people think though.

Yen-Hsun Lu vs. Andy Roddick (5)

Lu has not dropped a set, then again, he hasn't really had a tough opponent. Roddick lucked out. 

Court five starting at 7:00 a.m. ET:

Tsvetana Pironkova vs. Marion Bartoli (11)

The former is mostly a no name, but Bartoli is extremely inconsistent. This is not what people would call a popcorn match. However, given Bartoli's success on grass, she will probably win. 

Klara Zakopalova vs. Kaia Kanepi: 

I really don't know anything about these players except for the fact that they are playing well in this tournament.

No. 12 court starting at 7:00 a.m. ET: 

Vera Zvonareva (21) vs. Jelana Jankovic (4): 

Jankovic has been flying under the radar and has a decent chance to make a deep run.

Julien Benneteau (32) vs. Jo-Wilfred Tsonga (10): Tsonga has been struggling so far, even though his health has been fine. I like this match to go long and be very entertaining. Both players are from France. 

Robin Soderling (6) vs. David Ferrer (9):

Soderling is the dark horse to win the tournament and has so far played the best out of any player. Ferrer has gotten though but you have to believe that it is advantage Robin.  

Court 18 starting at 7:00 a.m. ET:

Na Li (9) vs. Angieszka Radwanska (7)

You may not have heard about these players, but they are two of the top athletes on tour. 

Tomas Berdych (12) vs. Daniel Brands

Do not give up on this match if you don't know who Daniel Brands is. Brands is playing outstanding tennis as of late and is a deadly player on grass. The same goes for Tomas Berdych. This has a decent chance for five sets.
