Wimbledon 2019 action continues with more star-studded fixtures at this year’s Championships. Once again, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are the three favourites for success in the men’s event.
Top seed Djokovic started his defence of title by beating Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets as the pair opened up the tournament on Centre Court. The 32-year-old Serb was never in serious trouble during a 6-3 7-5 6-3 win.
The Serb cruised into the Wimbledon third round as he needed just one hour and 33 minutes to beat American Denis Kudla 6-3 6-2 6-2.
In the third round, for two sets, 22-year-old Hubert Hurkacz gave Novak Djokovic all he could handle before eventually succumbing to the top seed, 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-1, 6-4.
Djokovic had a far easier time of it against his second youngster of the tournament Ugo Humbert in the round of 16, winning in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.
In the quarterfinals, Djokovic will face David Goffin. Goffin has fought hard to reach the first quarterfinals at Wimbledon of his career and the former world number seven is an excellent player to watch. The 21st seed will be a step up in quality. He is 1-5 against the Serb, but he has played him well on various occasions.
According to Vbet, Novak Djokovic is the favourite to win the match.
