Wimbledon men's singles: Cameron Norrie vs Alexander Zverev

Home player Cameron Norrie is set for his eighth head-to-head clash with Alexander Zverev and just his third win over the German.

This will be their first clash on grass and comes with Zverev holding a 5-1 record on the surface this term against Norrie's record of 3-3.

Norrie upset compatriot Jack Draper to eliminate his first seed of the Wimbledon campaign last time out.

However, Zverev is a different prospect and might even be an outsider for the title here.

 

Wimbledon men's singles: Alexei Popyrin vs Novak Djokovic

Popyrin can be a challenge for even top players to face but against someone with the defensive game of Djokovic, he will struggle.

Djokovic has shown no signs of ill-effects despite his recent surgery and he has surged to the top of the betting after a strong start to his tilt.

Popyrin has lost both of his previous matches against Djokovic although he was able to take him to four sets in Melbourne earlier this year.

Djokovic dropped a set against Jacob Fearnley in the previous round but the upset didn't truly look on.

 

Wimbledon men's singles: Taylor Fritz vs Alejandro Tabilo

It's an all-seeded battle as Taylor Fritz takes on Chile's Alejandro Tabilo for the third time.

Fritz has won both of their previous meetings in straight sets recording his wins on hard and clay courts while this is their first meeting on grass.

Tabilo scraped through the second round despite racing to a 2-0 set lead in his match against Flavio Cobolli last time out.

Fritz put down an attempted comeback by Arthur Rinderknech to secure his passage into the Round of 32.

 

Wimbledon men's singles: Holger Rune vs Quentin Halys

Holger Rune and Quentin Halys are set to share the court for the first time in singles competition when they do third third-round battle at Wimbledon.

Halys has come through qualifying and pulled off a pair of upsets already as he sent Christopher Eubanks and Karen Khachanov packing.

Rune has played assured tennis on a surface that he doesn't really favour although he should be targeting reaching the last 16 at least.

The winner of this match will go on to face either Djokovic or Popyrin in the fourth round.

 

Wimbledon women's singles: Ons Jabeur vs Elina Svitolina

Ons Jabeur snapped a losing streak against Elina Svitolina in their last meeting but facing a player of her quality this early in her bid to return to the Wimbledon championship match presents a stiff challenge.

Svitolina has already had a tough tournament after beating Magda Linette 7-5 6-7(9) 6-3 and Jule Niemeier 6-3 6-4 to reach the third round.

Jabeur has looked close to her best in two straight sets wins and will take some stopping.

Having the edge in serve efficiency so far makes Jabeur the player more likely to progress from this clash.

 

Wimbledon women's singles: Iga Swiatek vs Yulia Putintseva

Iga Swiatek has beaten Yulia Putintseva four times with the Kazakhstan No 2 yet to defeat the current rankings queen.

Putintseva might be helped by Swiatek's relative weakness on grass but her own record on the surface is nothing to write home about.

Swiatek will be reassured by her previous results against the world No 35, especially the clinical win she recorded in Rome.

Putintseva will need to be both aggressive and really precise with her serve to have any chance of securing the upset.

 

Wimbledon women's singles: Elena Rybakina vs Caroline Wozniacki

Elena Rybakina and Caroline Wozniacki will contest their first-ever clash on Court No 1 on Saturday.

Rybakina bested Elena Gabriela Ruse 6-3 6-1 and put down Laura Siegemund's attempted comeback to win 6-3 3-6 6-3 in the second round.

The 2022 champion faces a former world No 1, and although she should have all the tools to defeat Wozniacki and progress into the last 16, it could be closer than their rankings gap suggests.

Wozniacki will have to scrap for everything and try to move Rybakina around, but the clean-hitting world No 4 will probably outgun the Dane.

 

Wimbledon women's singles: Danielle Collins vs Beatriz Haddad Maia

Danielle Collins is having quite the final season on the WTA Tour but Beatriz Haddad Maia will take some beating on grass.

The Brazilian has the superior record on grass with 32 wins and 17 losses against Collins' 9-10 return.

Recent form suggests that Collins will have a good chance of beating the world No 20.

This will be the first-ever meeting between these players and it will go down as the second match of the day on Court No 2.
