No. 12 Novak Djokovic vs. No. 24 Kei Nishikori at 7:00 AM
Three-time Wimbledon winner (2011, 2014, 2015) Novak Djokovic may be ranked a modest 21st in the world, but he looked nothing short of phenomenal in dispatching big-hitting Karen Khachanov in 6-4. 6-2. 6-2 in the Round of 16 on Monday.
Former top 5 player and No. 21 seed Kei Nishikori needed four sets to dispatch dangerous Ernests Gulbis in the Round of 16 on Monday, but he finished off the Latvian with a flourish 6-1 in the fourth set on Monday.
These two ATP superstars have played a whopping 17 times in their careers and from the looks of it, Novak Djokovic is a virtual lock to win their quarterfinal matchup as he owns a stunning 15-2 record in their head-to-head meetings including two wins on clay this year. Djokovic has won 13 straight meetings dating back to 2014, so this one looks like a wrap!
No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro vs. No. 2 Rafael Nadal at 10:00 AM
Fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro needed four sets to get rid of the consistent Gilles Simon in their Round of 16 matchup on Monday while second-seeded Rafael Nadal hasn’t dropped a set and dispatched Jiri Vesely quite easily in their Round of 16 encounter on Monday.
While Juan Martin Del Potro is just 5-10 in his career against Rafael Nadal, the two have split their last four meetings evenly, although Rafa has won the last two including a 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 straight sets win at Roland Garros this year. Nadal has won their only two meetings on grass, but I’m sensing that Del Po won’t go down easily in this one. Still, in the end, Rafa looks like the pick in this one.
More importantly, if Novak Djokovic meets Rafael Nadal in the semis, you should know that Nole is 26-25 in an insane 51 career meetings between the two. While Rafa has won the last two meetings, Djokovic won the previous seven meetings and has the look of a player that won’t be denied right now. Djokovic also won their last meeting on grass at Wimbledon in 2011. I like the Djoker if these two meet in the semis.
No. 1 Roger Federer vs. No. 8 Kevin Anderson at 7:00 AM
Top-seeded Roger Federer has yet to drop a set this fortnight and comes into his quarterfinal match off a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 win over No. 22 seed Adrian Mannarino on Monday. Eighth seeded Kevin Anderson has gone four sets twice this tournament including his Round of 16 matchup against Frenchman Gael Monfils in which he won all three sets in a tie-break.
Federer owns a spotless 4-0 career mark against Anderson and although the two have never met on grass, you’ve got to know that Anderson is fighting an almost winless battle in this one.
No. 13 Milos Raonic vs. No. 9 John Isner at 10:00 AM
No. 13 seed and 2016 Wimbly finalist Milos Raonic has gone four sets in each of his last three matches including his Round of 16 win over Mackenzie McDonald on Monday. Ninth-seeded John Isner needed five sets in this Round of 64 match against Ruben Bemelmans but comes into this quarterfinal match off a hard-fought straight sets win over Stefanos Tsitspas on Monday. Isner owns a 3-1 career edge over Raonic in their head-to-head meetings, but Raonic won their last encounter by taking a pair of tie-breakers in Cincinnati back in 2016.
I’m going with Raonic for the win in this one just because I think he’s the slightly better mover on the grass between the two big servers. In the end it won’t matter who wins this match because Roger Federer will be waiting in the semis. He’s 11-3 in his career against Raonic including a win in their last meeting in Stuttgart just prior to Wimbledon. Federer is also 5-2 against Isner in his career although the big-serving American took the last meeting between the two in 2015, although Federer has won their only career meeting on grass at the London Olympic back in 2012.
