Wimbledon 2010 – Quarter Final Draw

Wimbledon 2010The second Monday of Wimbledon is always a busy day, 8 men’s 4th round matches and 8 women’s 4th round matches need to be played and with just 3 matches assigned to each of the 2 main show courts it means that the public with ground passes get to see some potentially great matches. It also means that there is potential that a big star is going to be in unfamiliar territory on a smaller court and we may see an upset.

That’s what we got when Yen-Hsun Lu knocked out of the big favorites Andy Roddick on court 2 – Whether being on court 2 did affect Roddick or not is still in question, but Lu makes it through to his first Wimbledon quarter final to face Novak Djokovic.

So far the Roger Federer has looked a little shaky in the first 2 rounds and looked supremely good in the next two rounds, so when he faces Tomas Berdych on Wednesday which Federer will we get. Or will it be Berdych who decides who wins this one, a considered “under achiever” so far can the Czech player finally perform on the biggest stage.

In the bottom half of the draw, Murray has been making smooth progress and faces 10th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarter finals, which should be the toughest match to date for the Scot. Meanwhile in the final match Nadal and Soderling renew there now growing rivalry can Soderling record another win over Nadal?
