Last 16 for Wimbledon

What will be the 4th round matchups?

I think:

(1) Federer - Mayer
(11) J. Johansson - Baghdatis (or Bjorkman)
(3) Hewitt - (24) Dent
(10) Ancic - Philipoussis (or maybe Safin)
Mirnyi - (19) Haas
(14) Stepanek - Schalken
(6) Henman - (9) Grosjean
(20) Ljubicic - (2) Roddick (or Karlovic)

MARIO ANCIC
IVAN LJUBICIC
IVO KARLOVIC

ROGER FEDERER
MARAT SAFIN
CARLOS MOYA

ANDRE AGASSI, GASTON GAUDIO, GAEL MONFILS, MARIN CILIC, ROKO KARANUSIC

GORAN IVANISEVIC

Re: Last 16 for Wimbledon

I appreciate everybody thinking Schalken will reach the 4th round, but I have some bad news for you. Sjeng is currently suffering a lot from a tenditis injury which hasn't really recovered yet. The only reason he's playing this week is because it is his home tournament and he is an ambassador for the Rosmalen event.
Schalken is more than likely to pull out of Wimbledon this year.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Last 16 for Wimbledon

I am surprised that at least two people have Ljubicic reaching the last 16 at Wimbledon. Ivan has never made it past the 3rd round at any Grand Slam.

He seems to specialize in losing in finals to Fed and mowing down the US in Davis Cup.

Roger Federer - Juan Carlos Ferrero
Greg Rusedski - Nikolay Davydenko
Lleyton Hewitt - Lars Burgsmüller
Mario Ancic - Marat Safin

Max Mirnyi - Tomas Johansson
Radek Stepanek - Philipp Kohlschreiber
Wayne Arthurs - Sebastian Grosjean
Xavier Malisse - Ivo Karlovic

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Last 16 for Wimbledon

Why do people think Davydenko will make it to the 4th round? The man has never won a match on grass!

Re: Last 16 for Wimbledon

heres what I'm guessing we'll see in R4

Quarter 1

R Federer v JC Ferrero

Ferrero to make a surprise appearance after getting past Mayer in 4 and then Robredo in 5. Roger comfy over PHM and then Minar, maybe with a little fight like the last match they had, but thats only if Roger is well off early in the tourn, then taking out Kiefer, but not after losing a set)

J Johansson v N Davydenko

Johansson to find his way early on at Wimby, winning a tough 4 setter against Rusedski and then another difficult 4 setter against Gonzalez. Davydenko to make a surprise appearance, riding his recent form wave to overcome Bjorkman and Youzhny, having a tough time against Jonas. Look out for Scotty Draper to take him to 5 sets in R1!

Quarter 2

L Hewitt v T Dent

Lleyton to survive yet another spirited match from Blake in 4, still a little rusty, but will be good enough to overcome Massu in straight sets. Dent to have surprisingly comfy wins despite his current lack of matchfitness, overcoming Berdych in R3.

M Ancic v M Safin

Ancic through without too much trouble, taken to 4 by the Dominator. Marat will take on that newfound grass confidence to see him through to R4, taking out Srichaphan in straights, and winning in a 5 set thriller to a galant Flip. A problem free R3 against Phau will see him into R4.

Quarter 3

M Mirnyi v T Haas

Mirnyi to come through in 4 sets against both Schuettler and Canas, then in an easy straight sets crushing of Novak. Meanwhile, Haas will have an easy first 2 rounds before he is tested ever so slightly against Tojo, but winning in 4.

R Stepanek v R Gasquet

Stepanek to come out blazing with straight set wins against Ginepri and Murray, and having little trouble against Nalbandian, winning through in 4. Gasquet to have an extremely tough time getting into the 4th round, taking out Kohlschreiber in 4, Schalken in 4, and then overcoming a partying exhausted Rafa in 5 sets. I hope not though

Quarter 4

T Henman v S Grosjean

Tim to defeat Nieminen in 4, won't look all too impressive, but will lift for an easy win over Almagro. Look for Wayne to keep him on court a while in R3, but Tim should outlast in 4. Seb will be in great shape with easy wins over Llodra and Carlsen. He'll have a tougher time of it against Ferrer, but will still get through in straights.

X Malisse v A Roddick

Xavier to have a tough time getting here, but will overcome Coria in 4, before taking out Ljubicic in 5. Roddick with an easy first round win, then after taking the first 2 sets in tb's, will cruise through the third to record a straight sets victory over Ivo. Soderling may surprise after giving Roger a shake, but Roddick should still get through unscathed.

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

...better to reign in hell than serve in heaven...

Re: Last 16 for Wimbledon

Thomas Johansson had to retire from his match today, so that could diminish his chances of reaching the 4th round if he's injured.
