The 2013 Wimbledon Championships men’s singles tournament has just three days of play remaining, men’s quarter finals, semi finals and finals day.
The order of play for day 9 Wednesday 3 July is listed below to make it easier for you to know who plays whom and when. The quarter finals are only played on the two main stadium courts i.e. Centre Court and No.1 Court and commence at 1pm simultaneously.
I can produce this unofficial order of play for you before it is released at 6pm London time today, based on the women’s quarter finals order of play and the following premise…
To provide the semi finalists an equal amount of time as possible to recover to compete to the best of their ability against their next opponent, both top half of the draw matches are being played first and are followed by both bottom half of the draw matches. Therefore, the winners of the first match on each court will meet in the semi finals as will the winners of the second match on each court.
To watch the tennis in Singapore you need to add 7 hours to the local time in London to work out the equivalent Singapore time.
Pictured above at this year’s Championships Jerzy Janowicz lining himself up for the incoming ball, accounting for most perfect preparation markers to provide a high chance of success in the execution of this forehand at the 2013 Wimbledon Championships.
The 2.03m Janowicz is averaging 50 winners per match to just 19 unforced errors in his first four rounds this year. The Polish No.1 is up against World No.130, 31-year-old Lukas Kubot in the first time two Polish men have made the Wimbledon quarter finals. The 22-year-old Janowicz is already at a career high ranking of No.22 he will obviously break into the Top 20 next Monday. The question is, how soon will he be in the Top 10?
Janowicz is rapidly improving despite playing in only his fifth Grand Slam tournament and first Slam for a second time. A year ago he qualified and won through to the 3rd round. This year he seems poised to rock the tournament as if it hasn’t been shaken up enough already, well maybe just from the view of the Top 10 ranked players remaining!
