Wimbledon Day 4 Predictions Including Kei Nishikori vs Jordan Thompson

Kei Nishikori Halle 2021

Kei Nishikori is playing well and could be a threat at Wimbledon, but first he’ll need to get past Jordan Thompson. We have predictions for every Wimbledon match on day 4 including Roger Federer’s.

Kei Nishikori vs Jordan Thompson

Yesh Ginsburg: Kei Nishikori looks to be in the best form we’ve seen from him in years. Not only is that bad news for Jordan Thompson, it’s bad news for the entire draw. Nishikori in 3

Damian Kust: The Japanese is an underrated grass-court player and his Wimbledon results aren’t far behind the other slams. Straight-setting someone with a game as big as Popyrin is a good feat and with the draw opening up, he could be eyeing a deep run here. Nishikori in 3

Alexander Zverev vs Tennys Sandgren

Yesh: Zverev has never been great on grass. Sandgren doesn’t have the most experience on the surface, but his game suits it. Don’t expect the American to pull it off, but Zverev should be on upset alert. Zverev in 5

Damian: Sandgren is in the middle of a dreadful season, but it looks like getting to a more favorable surface has woken him up a bit. He shouldn’t have enough for Zverev though, who was very solid in his opener and seems to be a bit underrated on this surface, especially looking at his results from the early days of his career. Zverev in 4

Matteo Berrettini vs Botic van de Zandschulp

Yesh: Berrettini should be viewed as a potential favorite to win the title right now (after Djokovic, of course). His Dutch opponent is improving and impressing, but this is a big mismatch. Berrettini in 3

Damian: The Italian is among the title favorites but his opener against Guido Pella was not as convincing as expected. Still, he should march on against an opponent that will make the match very serve-centric but is less consistent and has a lot less variety in terms of the spins of his delivery. Berrettini in 3

Marcos Giron vs Hubert Hurkacz

Yesh: Marcos Giron is in the best form of his career. He pulled off two upsets at the French Open and is looking for another one here. Hurkacz is a better player, but he shouldn’t underestimate the American. Giron in 5

Damian: Hurkacz came to Wimbledon in the middle of a very poor period of play. The Pole is a streaky player and perhaps a very solid opening win against Musetti (wasn’t broken in best of five for the very first time) could allow him to relax and play his best tennis again. That wouldn’t bode well for Giron. Hurkacz in 4
