Carlos Alcaraz (1) vs Nicolas Jarry (25)

Alcaraz has been playing great tennis on grass this week, having not dropped a set so far in the tournament. His opponent Jarry is more known as a clay-court specialist, having won all his three ATP titles on the red surface. However, the Chilean notched a solid win against Jason Kubler in the second round so can’t be underestimated. This should be fairly straightforward for the world number 1.

Prediction – Alcaraz to win in 3 sets

Ons Jabeur (6) vs Bianca Andreescu

Arguably the match of the day sees last year’s finalist Ons Jabeur take on the 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu. The Tunisian has been on top form so far, dropping only eight games over the first two matches. Andreescu’s journey to the third-round has been a little more tricky. She battled against Anna Bondar in the first-round and in the second-round, scrapped past 26th seed Anhelina Kalinina. Andreescu came back from 2-5 down in the third set to win 10-7 in the match tiebreak. This is the Canadian’s first time in the third round of Wimbledon but she will face her toughest test yet against Jabeur. If Andreescu can get back to her 2019 winning level, she certainly has a chance in this match, but Jabeur will be extremely hard to beat.

Prediction – Jabeur to win in 2 sets

Elena Rybakina (3) vs Katie Boulter

Rybakina continues the defense of her title after a nervy win against Alize Cornet. The Kazakh wasn’t at her best, racking up too many unforced errors and double faults. Boulter also came through a tough three-set match against Viktoriya Tomova. Rybakina must cut out these errors against Boulter, who will take any opportunities she is given. However, even with the British crowd behind her, Boulter will fall short in two competitive sets.

Prediction – Rybakina to win in 2 sets

Daniil Medvedev (3) vs Marton Fucsovics

In the second-round, Medvedev put in a solid performance to beat Adrian Mannarino in three sets. The world number 3 will look to progress to the fourth round of Wimbledon for only the second time in his career but first has to get past in-form Marton Fuscovics. Fucsovics had an impressive straight-sets win against the 24th seed, Tallon Griekspoor in the first-round and backed this up with a four-set win over Marcos Giron. The Hungarian, a former Wimbledon quarter-finalist, has the grass-court experience to trouble Medvedev. I think Fucsovics will win a set, but Medvedev seems to be finding some form this week so should win this match.

Prediction – Medvedev to win in 4 sets

Aryna Sabalenka (2) vs Anna Blinkova

The world number 2 came back from a set down to fend off Varvara Gracheva and reach the third round. Sabalenka was not at her best, comfortably losing the first set 6-2. However, she raised her level when she needed to, scraping through the second set, taking it 7-5. Once she secured the break early in the third set, it was one-way traffic for the Belarusian. She will need to play better against Blinkova who knocked out the 29th seed, Begu.

Prediction – Sabalenka to win in two sets

Alexander Zverev (19) vs Matteo Berrettini

Zverev and Berrettini close the action on Day 6 of The Championships. Both major finalists seem to be returning to their old best as they continue their comeback from injury. In his first appearance at the All England Club since 2021, Zverev has put in two solid performances to reach the third round. Berrettini has also surprised me this week. Having played little tennis this year, the Italian knocked out the tough Sonego in the first round and backed it up against the in-form Alex de Minaur. Zverev leads the head-to-head 4-1, but this will be their first battle on grass. Both players have some of the best serves on tour, so expect aces. Zverev will look to exploit the Berrettini backhand, which can be a liability, while the Italian will use his slice to keep the ball out of the German’s hitting zone. This is a 50/50 match, but given it’s being played on grass, I will give the slight edge to Berrettini.

Prediction – Berrettini to win in 4 sets

Madison Keys (25) vs Marta Kostyuk

The big-hitting American has been playing very well this fortnight. Her best result at Wimbledon came back in 2015 when she reached the quarter-finals. Kostyuk has also been in-form, defeating Sakkari in the first round and an injured Badosa in the second. Keys’ game is built for grass, so she will overpower the Ukrainian youngster.

Prediction – Keys to win in 2 sets

Anastasia Potapova (22) vs Mira Andreeva

Can the 16-year-old continue her magical run or will the 22nd seed reach the fourth round of a major for the first time? Andreeva has been exceptional to get this far given her lack of grass-court experience. This will be a tight match but I give the edge to the 2016 girls Wimbledon champion, Potapova.

Prediction – Potapova to win in 3 sets

Frances Tiafoe (10) vs Grigor Dimitrov (21)

This will be a closely contested match. Both players haven’t dropped a set so far this fortnight and know how to play well on the grass so it could go either way. Expect a flurry of drop shots and serves and volleys.

Prediction – Tiafoe to win in 4 sets
