Wimbledon Order of Play Today - 11th July 2023

Another day of enthralling tennis awaits us at Wimbledon, but what is today's order of play?

Centre Court 1.30pm

#1 Iga Swiatek (1) vs Elina Svitolina

After saving two match points in her last outing against Belinda Bencic, world #1 Swiatek will be hoping for a much simpler outing this time around against Svitolina.

The Ukrainian came through a stunning match against Victoria Azarenka in the last round and will be looking to match her 2019 result, where she made the semi-finals.

Swiatek has shown that her game can be transferred onto grass, and her granite display against Bencic suggests she has the bit between her teeth this year. She will take some beating.

#2 Novak Djokovic (2) vs Andrey Rublev (7)

Despite dropping his first set of the championships, Djokovic looked at his imperious best against a game Hubert Hurkacz in round 4. Despite hitting over 30 aces, Hurkacz was unable to deal with Djokovic's relentless pressure and, like many, fell at the hands of the Serb.

Djokovic's opponent in the quarter-finals will be Andrey Rublev, returning to Wimbledon for the first time since 2021. Rublev has had his best performance at Wimbledon so far and will be hoping to make his first grand slam semi-final.

However, perhaps the most daunting task in tennis awaits Rublev, who has one victory over Djokovic, on clay last year. He will have to play the game of his life if his is to become the first person to beat Djokovic on Centre Court in over 10 years.

Court One 1.00 pm

Jessica Pegula (4) vs Marketa Vondrousova

Despite her high ranking, Jessica Pegula's run to the quarter-finals may have surprised a few. Pegula had never made it past the third round at Wimbledon before and despite a shaky first round, seems to have gotten better and better as the tournament has progressed.

Her opponent, Marketa Vondrousova, has had a remarkable run at this year's Wimbledon. The former French Open finalist had never made it past the second round before, but saw off a number of top players, including one of the tournament favourites Donna Vekic to book her place in the quarter-finals.

Pegula will be the favourite, with her net game being her biggest strength.

Jannik Sinner (8) vs Roman Safiullin

Sinner has been one of the most impressive players at this year's Wimbledon. The Italian's game seems perfectly suited to grass, and he appears to have improved on the form he showed last year, where he narrowly missed out to Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals.

Sinner will be hoping to make it past the quarter-finals of a grand slam for the first time when he takes on one of the big surprises of this year's Wimbledon, Roman Safiullin. The Russian world #92, upset a host of top players including Roberto Bautista Agut and Dennis Shapovalov to book his place in his first grand slam quarter-final.

On paper this looks like a good draw for Sinner, but Safiullin will be dangerous knowing he has nothing to loose and everything to gain.

We are in store for another great day at Wimbledon!
