Nick Kyrgios and Richard Gasquet are two of the most talented shotmakers in tennis, they will showcase on day 4 of Wimbledon with their second round matches. We have predictions for every day 4 match in London including Rafael Nadal’s second round match.

Nick Kyrgios vs Filip Krajinovic

Damian Kust: Nick Kyrgios didn’t have an easy time fending off Paul Jubb, but he’s usually capable of raising his game when needed. Filip Krajinovic is coming off a final at Queen’s, but other than that grass had never been his favorite surface. You never quite know what to expect with the Australian, but when calm and collected he’s an absolute force. Kyrgios in 4

Jakub Bobro: Kyrgios was surprisingly pushed to five by young wildcard Paul Jubb while Krajinovic also took five sets to take out the talented Jiri Lehecka. Considering Kyrgios winning all three of their previous meetings as well as his preference for grass, the Australian will continue his push to reach the second week here for the first time since 2016.

Richard Gasquet vs Mackenzie McDonald

Damian: Richard Gasquet’s fitness survived a very tough test in the opening round, but he might not have much left in the tank for this one. Mackenzie McDonald is competent enough to force the two-time Wimbledon semifinalist to work for it and at this stage of his career, the Frenchman could struggle to keep himself in the match physically. McDonald in 5

Jakub: Gasquet chose not to play any grass warm-ups and had go to five sets to beat Joao Sousa. McDonald got to face lucky loser Nuno Borges instead of Marin Cilic, who was a late withdrawal. The American won their only meeting in Australia last January and, though I expect it to be close, I think the French veteran will come out on top. Gasquet in 5

Diego Schwartzman vs Liam Broady

Damian: It’s a brilliant opportunity for Diego Schwartzman, who didn’t do well in the warm-ups, but seems to have peaked for Wimbledon in the past few editions. Liam Broady is having the best grass season of his career though and he won’t be a pushover. Expect a good fight but with the 12th seed ultimately having too much quality from the ground. Schwartzman in 4

Jakub: Schwartzman came in on a three-match losing streak but dropped just seven games against lucky loser Stefan Kozlov. The Argentine has a good chance to reach the third round for his third straight time at Wimbledon as he faces Broady. The Brit went five sets with Slovak qualifier Lukas Klein, the crowd carrying him through in the end. Schwartzman won their previous meeting here last year and he should win again. Schwartzman in 4

Cristian Garin vs Hugo Grenier

Damian: This quite the opportunity for both, Cristian Garin getting a lucky loser instead of Matteo Berrettini, and then facing another one. The Chilean is hardly a grass-courter, but he’s shown he’s capable of regularly fending off lower-ranked opposition on this surface. However, Hugo Grenier has a massive serve that could get him over the edge here. Grenier in 5

Jakub: Garin got to face lucky loser Elias Ymer after defending finalist Matteo Berrettini pulled out due to a positive Covid test. The Chilean did good on the opportunity and won in straight sets. He will now play another lucky loser as Hugo Grenier defeated qualifier Marc-Andrea Huesler in five sets. The Frenchman does not have much experience on grass but his game is certainly suited to it. While Garin beat Ymer pretty easily, they play a similar style while Grenier will bring a different challenge. I think the 26-year-old might struggle and the lucky loser could very well go to the third round in his slam debut. Grenier in 5
