Wimbledon 2023 Day 10 Predictions

Before we get into day 10 and the exciting matches that await, let’s look at the predictions summary for yesterday. If you are into betting on tennis, check out our betting guide—more info about Wimbledon, as always, on the official Wimbledon website.

My Day 9 Predictions Summary

Swiatek to beat Svitolina in 2 sets
Djokovic to beat Rublev in 3 sets
Vondrousova to beat Pegula in 3 sets
Sinner to beat Safiullin in 3 sets

Day 9 Results

Svitolina beat Swiatek in 3 sets – 0 points
Djokovic beat Rublev in 4 sets – 1 point
Vondrousova beat Pegula in 3 sets – 2 points
Sinner beat Safiullin in 4 sets – 1 point

The standout moment from Day 9 of The Championships was Elina Svitolina’s emotional three-set win against the world number 1, Iga Swiatek. The Ukrainian, who only returned to the tour in April after giving birth to her baby, has defeated four former major champions on her way to the semi-finals of Wimbledon for the first time in her career.

Can Svitolina continue her comeback story? Only Marketa Vondrousova stands in her way for a place in the Wimbledon final.

Day 10 Predictions

Elena Rybakina (3) vs Ons Jabeur (6)

This is the match-up we’ve all been waiting for. The defending champion Elena Rybakina takes on the 2022 finalist Ons Jabeur in a rematch of last year’s memorizing final. Both players have been in tremendous form this fortnight, so we can expect fireworks. Rybakina has been serving lights-out all week, so it will be extremely hard for Jabeur to break her. If Jabeur can dink the return back into play, the Kazakh will use her ferocious groundstrokes and ability to finish points at the net to take time away from the Tunisian. Rybakina loves rhythm but if there’s one player who can break this, it’s probably the rhythm-breaker herself, Jabeur. Jabeur will use the slice to nullify Rybakina’s power and keep the Kazakh off-balance. The Tunisian will look to dictate with the forehand and the backhand drop shot to keep Rybakina guessing. Before Jabeur’s stunning performances over Andreescu and Kvitova, I would have given Rybakina the edge in this match. Now, I think it could be Ons’ time to get revenge.

Prediction – Jabeur to win in 3 sets

Carlos Alcaraz (1) vs Holger Rune (6)

Another highly anticipated match sees the two 20-year-olds do battle on Centre Court. Both players have quickly adapted to the grass courts and have produced some stunning results this fortnight. Rune’s tennis level has never been questioned, but in the past, his mental game has. Through this tournament, he has shown improvements in this department, coming through two grueling matches against Davidovich Fokina and Dimitrov. On the other hand, Alcaraz has reminded us of how good he is despite his lack of grass-court experience. The young Spaniard tore apart Berrettini’s game and will look to do the same today against the Dane. Both players hit big, have exceptional movement, and can hit highlight reel shots for days, so expect some close sets. You have to give the slight edge to Alcaraz, given his better record at the majors, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Rune snatched the victory.

Prediction – Alcaraz to win in 4 sets

Aryna Sabalenka (2) vs Madison Keys (25)

By reaching the quarter-final, Keys has equalled her best ever run at Wimbledon. The American’s game is a dream to watch on the grass. This fortnight, she has been timing the ball to perfection while showing her ability to adapt her game mid-match. In the third set of her fourth-round comeback win against the 16-year-old Mirra Andreeva, Keys began to rush the net, which worked a treat. She might have to employ this strategy again, as Sabalenka won’t be afraid to go toe-to-toe with Keys. Sabalenka hits as big or arguably even bigger than Keys and her ability to redirect the ball is outstanding. Throw in Sabalenka’s serve and underrated touch, Keys will have to play her best if she has a chance in this match.

Prediction – Sabalenka to win in 2 sets

Daniil Medvdev (3) vs Chris Eubanks

Chris Eubanks had to be one of the biggest stories on the men’s side of the tournament. The American has produced some stunning tennis to reach the quarter-final of Wimbledon in his first-main draw appearance. Eubanks defeated last year’s semi-finalist Cameron Norrie in the second round and came through a whirlwind match against Tsitsipas in the fourth round. The American will have nothing to lose in this match, as he is the underdog. Medvedev is one of the best returners in the world, and his ability to nullify his opponent’s shots and turn defence into attack is special. Eubanks could snatch a set, but I expect Medvedev’s experience to pull him through.

Prediction – Medvedev to win in 4 sets
