All four men's quarter-finals for the ongoing Wimbledon championship are scheduled to take place today. Top players, such as Federer, Murray, and Djokovic, would be on action to give their best.
and Novak Djokovic
are favourites for their respective matches against M. Youzhny and F. Mayer. If they win their match, these two Tennis stars would meet in the semi-finals of the competition. It would indeed be viewed as the finals of the competition. Federer has had a good run in the competition so far. But, he survived a major scare when he faced Benneteau in the third round of the competition. He dragged the Swiss ace to a five-setter match.
Djokovic, on the other hand, has had a great competition, may be even better than most of the players on the circuit. He has been in tremendous form, as he has only lost a single set during the entire championship till date. Else, he has not been troubled in any of the matches. His biggest test may be against the former World
Number 1 in the semis, Fedex
, if they both progress ahead.
The Frenchman, Tsonga, might find it easy to progress into the semi-finals of the competition, where he might face local favourite, Andy Murray, if they win their matches. But, Andy Murray has a tough test of character as he would be facing the Spaniard, D. Ferrer who has it in him to beat the local lad. It could be a great upset for Brit fans, who want their local hero to clinch the title. He has not won any Grand Slam title till date. Will this be his year? He has been defeating some good players en route to the quarter-finals. Hence, and he would not be short of confidence when he plays the big guns of the tournament. Nadal's exit from the tournament means that he has a greater chance to progress into the finals of the competition, if all goes well.
On current form, it is Murray, Federer and Djokovic who look favourites for the title. But, we are just entering into the quarter-finals stage, so it might be too early to predict anything. The player who wins the title has to win three matches on a trot.
