Djokovic and Wawrinka face off
On Friday, Andy Murray will continue his match against Stefanos Tsitsipas at Wimbledon, with Murray currently leading two sets to one. Another notable match will feature Carlos Alcaraz, the top seed, facing Alexandre Muller for a place in the last 32. Ons Jabeur, the runner-up from last year, will also play her second-round match against Zhuoxuan Bai.
The day’s most anticipated clash is between Stan Wawrinka and defending champion Novak Djokovic. Wawrinka has previously defeated Djokovic in two Grand Slam finals and hopes to challenge him on grass. However, Wawrinka acknowledges the difficulty of the match, as Djokovic aims for his fifth consecutive Wimbledon title.
In the women’s draw, defending champion Elena Rybakina overcame Alize Cornet in a challenging second-round match and will face Katie Boulter in the next round. Donna Vekic made a remarkable comeback against Sloane Stephens to advance to the third round. Mikael Ymer also staged a comeback to upset Taylor Fritz, securing his spot in the Wimbledon third round for the first time.
