Wimbledon Day 4 Predictions Including Rafael Nadal vs Ricardas Berankis

Ricardas Berankis French Open 2022

Rafael Nadal had a difficult time advancing from his first round Wimbledon match, Ricardas Berankis is his next challenge in London. We have predictions for every day 4 match at Wimbledon including Nick Kyrgios and Taylor Fritz’s matches.

Rafael Nadal vs Ricardas Berankis

Damian Kust: Rafael Nadal showcased some fragility, not hitting with good enough depth and allowing Francisco Cerundolo to bully him around the court for a fair bit of their match. Ricardas Berankis should be less dangerous, not possessing that kind of firepower. Nadal should also be tuning in his game with every match. Nadal in 3

Jakub Bobro: Nadal returned to Wimbledon after three years, Francisco Cerundolo giving him a surprising amount of trouble in sets three and four. Berankis took out Sam Querrey but I still do not expect him to really push Nadal. Nadal in 4

Shane Black: Ricardas Berankis had a nice Round 1 straight-set win over American Sam Querrey, but of course, Rafael Nadal is a completely different beast. Motivated to capture the third leg of the calendar slam, Nadal will have the focus and the form to oust the Lithuanian. Nadal in 3

Marcos Giron vs Alex Molcan

Damian: Marcos Giron is a very tough competitor, even if sometimes it seems like tennis-wise he’s just much weaker than his opponent. That might also be the case here, but with Alex Molcan still trying to find his grass-court footing, the American has a very decent chance of pulling off another win. Giron in 5

Jakub: Molcan won on his debut, though Pedro Martinez was an easy draw to receive. Giron took out the talented Holger Rune in straight sets, though the Dane has never won a match on grass. The American has more experience on grass but Molcan has the game to beat him. Molcan in 4

Shane: After upsetting #24 seed Holger Rune in straight sets, Marcos Giron is looking to advance to Round 3 at Wimbledon for the first time in his career. Giron is a more polished ball-striker than Molcan and will be helped by the slick grass courts in London. I like the American to advance in a tight one. Giron in 4

Jason Kubler vs Dennis Novak

Damian: Battle of the qualifiers. Dennis Novak has a huge game that works extremely well on grass if he’s hitting with good rhythm. He’s really inconsistent though and Jason Kubler feels like a player that will eventually punish that in the long format. The Australian is having a brilliant season, winning matches regardless of surface or conditions. Kubler in 5

Jakub: Kubler is having a great season, re-entering the Top 100 after three and a half years. The Australian pulled off a straight-set upset over Dan Evans. Novak also came through qualifying and was a favorite when he beat Facundo Bagnis in the first round. This is a pretty even match but considering Novak won their only previous meeting on grass, I will lean towards the Austrian.. Novak in 5

Shane: Qualifiers Jason Kubler and Dennis Novak have both won four matches to make their way to Round 2 at Wimbledon. Kubler dispatched Dan Evans in Round 1 and is playing a confident brand of tennis. With that said, Novak favors the grass as his favorite surface and will relish this opportunity in an open part of the draw. Novak in 4

Jenson Brooksby vs Benjamin Bonzi

Damian: It’s been a while since Jenson Brooksby had a good showing, but the American actually enjoyed himself in the Mikhail Kukushkin matchup. He’s capable of defeating Benjamin Bonzi, but with the Frenchman’s great form of late (and seemingly no tour-level mental issues anymore), it’s hard to go against him. Bonzi in 4

Jakub: Brooksby had a surprisingly straightforward win over experienced qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin. The American entered Wimbledon in poor form but dropped just eight games in his opener. Bonzi was similarly impressive, losing just seven games against qualifier Zdenek Kolar. These two were among the best players on the Challenger Tour last year though they only faced each other once with Brooksby winning in three. I see the American winning here again. Brooksby in 4

Shane: American Jenson Brooksby captured a straight-set win in his first-ever match at Wimbledon. The #29 seed’s unorthodox style of play is tough to read on the grass as he uses his angles very well. Benjamin Bonzi is no stranger to the grass and actually holds a career-best 53% winning percentage on the surface. The Frenchman has been in form over the past two months, but I do not think he has the weapons to push Brooksby around. Brooksby in 5
