The 136th edition of Wimbledon begins on July 3, in London, at the All England Club. After a fantastic start on Monday, Wimbledon 2023 is set to witness some top Tennis stars on the fourth day, as Casper Ruud, Daniil Medvedev, and Andy Murray headline are just some of the names in action at Wimbledon 2023 Day 4.
Murray is set to face Stefanos Tsitsipas in a blockbuster clash. In the Women's Singles, Defending champion Elena Rybakina and third seed Jessica Pegula will be in action on Wimbledon 2023 Day 4. Alexander Zverev will kickstart action by facing Gijs Brouwer at 5.30 PM IST.
Fourth seed Casper Ruud will be up against Great Britain's Liam Broady in the second round. Ruud dropped a set in the first round against Laurent Lokoli as he clinched a 6-1, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 win. He will look to get back to his best in the upcoming contest. Ruud has never gone past the second round at Wimbledon. The Norwegian hopes to finally make it past Round 2 at his fourth appearance in the tournament.
Stefanos Tsitsipas has never got past the fourth round at Wimbledon and the Greek player, ranked No. 5 in the world at the moment, had one of the toughest first-round takes to negotiate. He had to endure three tie-breaks and five sets as he defeated the talented Austrian Dominic Thiem. Murray meanwhile is a two-time winner at SW19 but in recent years he has struggled for form and fitness after extensive hip surgery. Two grass court titles in the build-up to this year's Wimbledon has left him feeling confident, but he may not make it past Tsitsipas.
Rybakina might be ranked No. 3 in the world but many would consider her the favourite given she has already succeeded on grass before, and is the reigning champion at Wimbledon. Moreover, the 24-year-old Kazakhstani player will be aiming to get through to the third round and she is the overwhelming favourite against her experienced opponent.
Aged 33, Cornet is one of the older players on the tour and has 20 years professional experience. But for all those years on the circuit she has never progressed past the quarter-finals of any Grand Slam and her best performance at Wimbledon is a fourth round exit, last year and in 2014.
One significant change at Wimbledon this year will see the return of players from Russia and Belarus. The All England Club banned them a year earlier because of Russia's invasion of Ukraine with the help of Belarus in February 2022.
Four Grand Slams are held every year in tennis. It starts with the Australian Open in January. This is followed by the French Open in May and June, and Wimbledon in July, which is played on grass courts. The US Open is held in August-September, which is the last Grand Slam of the year.
