Wimbledon 2023 Day 3 Predictions
Day 2 of The Championships saw only rain as its winner. SW19 utilized both roofs of Centre and Court 1 as eight matches were scheduled and played.
Day three could be a busy one as tournament organizers work to schedule first and second-round matches for today. You can find today’s schedule at SW19; tennis betting websites can be found here as well as Wimbledon live scores here. Matchstat.com was designed to assist you with both analysis and predictions; ultimately though, the final choice lies with you alone.
Daria Kasatkina (11) vs Jodie Burrage
Last year, Jodie Burrage made headlines for her kindness when she presented Percy Pig with chocolates and treats during her first-round match of the tournament. But this year her inaugural victory on All England Club will make headlines. Burrage was stunned to defeat Caty McNally of America 6-1 and 6-3 and join fellow Brit Lizzie Armitage on the list of world top 100 players. At home, Wimbledon 2023 | Latest news | LTA her crowd will support Burrage as she strives to maintain her streak against Daria Kasatkina. Kasatkina, currently the world’s number 10, has had an outstanding run recently – she reached the Eastbourne final this week and made it to Wimbledon quarter-finals earlier. Expect Kasatkina to use her topspin heavy forehand and smart tactics against Briton Caroline Burrage; though I think the Russian will ultimately prevail here. MatchStat.com is your go-to source for tennis and football statistics.
Prediction – Kasatkina to win in 2 sets
Iga Swiatek (1) vs Sara Sorribes Tormo
Swiatek was flawless against Lin Zhu, losing only four games overall in her match against Sorribes Tormo – so performance will be key if she wants to beat Swiatek again – though her opponent must also perform at her highest level or risk defeat against this world-class Pole who should cruise into round two without much difficulty.
Prediction – Swiatek to win in 2 sets
Novak Djokovic (2) vs Jordan Thompson
Jordan Thompson had no signs of exhaustion after easily dispatching Pedro Cachin in the opening round. On the contrary, Australian Jordan Thompson displayed remarkable grit in coming back from one set down against rookie Brandon Nakashima to defeat rookie in five sets. Thompson is an exceptional grasscourt player; I would expect him to give any other player on court a run for their money; unfortunately for him though, his opponent is one of the greatest athletic forces ever seen and top player on this particular surface – giving Thompson little chance. Matchstat.com provides comprehensive coverage of tennis events at all levels worldwide with up-to-date information and statistical analysis of every event.
Prediction – Djokovic to win in 3 sets
Daniil Medvedev (3) vs Arthur Fery
Medvedev will face Arthur Fery in the first-round. After early exits at Australian Open and Roland Garros, Medvedev hopes for success this week after making it all the way to Wimbledon’s fourth round in 2021. Ferry, ranked 386, will make his debut before an audience. Unfortunately for Ferry though, Medvedev is too powerful of an opponent for Ferry to beat.
Prediction – Medvedev in 3 sets
Barbora Krejcikova (10) vs Heather Watson
Krejcikova will play British Heather Watson in the first-round following yesterday’s rainfall delay. Krejcikova made it all the way to Birmingham final two weeks prior, losing out only to Ostapenko; therefore she’s in great form and won her doubles crown at SW19 twice; both players can perform exceptionally on grass courts. Watson made history last year reaching fourth round; it was her best ever record breaking performance; though she will use crowd support at home against Krejcikova; however her smooth game proves too tough despite Watson.
Prediction – Krejcikova in 2 sets
Jannik Sinner (8) vs Diego Schwartzman
Sinner managed the floor well with Juan Manuel Cerundolo, losing just six games on grass courts this year. Now facing former world number 8 Diego Schwartzman (inconsistent this year but winning his opening match against Miomir Kecmanovic). Sinner can use his groundstrokes effectively against an Argentine opponent using this surface.
Prediction – Sinner to win in 3 sets
Matches to watch
Maria Sakkari (8) vs Marta Kostyuk
Due to yesterday’s rain delay, today’s first-round match has been rescheduled for play. Sakkari advanced to the semifinals of Berlin grass court tournament and will likely test her form against 21 year-old Kostyuk, who has struggled since her breakout performance during 2018 Australian Open as 15 year-old but who remains an excellent grass court player. Personally I favor Kostyuk so as to create disappointment among the Greek.
Prediction – Kostyuk to win in 3 sets
Karolina Muchova (16) vs Jule Niemeier
Karolina Muchova, currently French Open finalist and two-time Wimbledon quarter-finalist, faces Jule Niemeier from last year’s competition as she seeks revenge in this year’s semi-final matchup. Muchova must utilize all her skills and volleys efficiently in order not to put Niemeier off balance; otherwise the German might prevail against Czech.
Prediction – Muchova to win in two sets
Mirra Andreeva vs Xiyu Wang
Mirra Andreeva, 16, has taken tennis fans by storm. At just 16 years old she made it all the way to Roland Garros and advanced into the third round, narrowly outside of the top 100 players. Now just outside of it all she has qualified for Wimbledon where she will face off against Xiyu Wang who has yet to experience victory on The All England Club’s courts – I am confident in Mirra Andreeva doing well this week!
Prediction – Andreeva to win in 2 sets
Elise Mertens (28) vs Elina Svitolina
Elise Mertens faces Elina Svitolina for an intriguing match on grass court that could go either way. Svitolina knocked out Venus Williams while Mertens defeated Viktoria Kuzmova. Both have impressive grass court credentials with Mertens reaching both 2019 and 2022 final four rounds; Svitolina made it as far as semi finals! Expect an entertaining and unpredictable match!
Prediction – Svitolina to win in 3 sets
Donna Vekic (20) vs Shuai Zhang
After making her professional tennis debut in 2012, 27-year-old Vekic has had one of her finest seasons ever since she entered. She made it to the quarter-finals at both Australian Open and Berlin tournaments; narrowly losing in both finals to Kvitova only two weeks prior. Now Vekic faces her toughest test yet when taking on Shuai Zhang (quarter finalist of Wimbledon 2019). I believe Vekic’s style will prove too much for her opponent to handle.
