Wimbledon Day 6 - Halep + S Zverev upset

Day Six of Wimbledon 2018 and the third round was completed.

The round of sixteen has, in my memory, never seen such a depletion of seeded players in both the men’s and women’s draws - not just the lower seeds either.

There will be a rest day tomorrow but the following players, seeded to be in the final 16, won’t be needing a rest because they won’t be seeing action in the second week of singles.


Marin Cilic (3)

Sascha Zverev (4)

Lost his third round match today to Ernests Gulbis, ranked 138 from Latvia, but once a top ten player

Grigor Dimitrov (6)

Dominic Thiem (7)

David Goffin (10)

Sam Querrey (11)

Diego Schwartzman (14)

Nick Kyrgios (15)

Lost his third round match today to Kei Nishikori (24)

Borna Coric (16)


Simona Halep (1) 

Lost her third round match today to Su-Wei Hsieh

Caroline Wozniacki (2)

Garbiñe Muguruza (3)

Sloane Stephens (4)

Elina Svitolina (5)

Caroline Garcia (6)

Petra Kvitová (8)

Venus Williams (9)

Madison Keys (10)

Elise Mertens (15)

Lost her third round match today to Dominika Cibulková 

CoCo Vandeweghe (16)

So only 12 of the 32 players drawn to be the crowd pleasers next week will do so.

The path has been made potentially a lot easier for Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Serena Williams and Karolina Pliskova.

They should have been playing 

Borna Coric

Diego Schwartzman 

Dominic Thiem 

Madison Keys

Venus Williams 


The round of sixteen matches scheduled for week two are:

Su-Wei Hsieh v Dominika Cibulková 

Jelena Ostapenko (12) v Aliaksandra Sasnovich 

Alison Van Uytvanck v Daria Kasatkina (14)

Angie Kerber (11) v Belinda Bencic 

Karolina Pliskova (7) v Kiki Bertens (20)

Julia Goerges (13) v Donna Vekic 

Serena Williams (25) v Evgeniya Rodina 

Camila Giorgi v Ekaterina Makarova 

16 from 13 different countries

Roger Federer (1) v Adrian Mannarino (22)

Gaël Monfils v Kevin Anderson (8)

Mackenzie McDonald v Milos Raonic (13)

John Isner (9) v Stefanos Tsitsipas (31)

Karen Khachanov v Novak Djokovic (12)

Kei Nishikori (24) v Ernests Gulbis 

Juan Martin del Potro (5) v Gilles Simon 

Jiri Vesely v Rafa Nadal (2)

16 from 13 different countries

In total 32 from 21 different countries
