Andy Murray vs Benoit Paire

Andy Murray vs Benoit Paire

American doubles specialist Bethany Mattek-Sands revealed she faces months on the sidelines after dislocating her knee and rupturing a ligament in the second round on Wednesday. Querrey may have a history as a big match player, but he's never played a match as big as this.

Matches were suspended throughout the day on outside courts before play was abandoned completely in the early evening.

"Now he's played himself into form". I do think it makes a difference to the interest in the sport, because a lot of people who follow tennis in this country won't enjoy watching me play.

"I'm sure he feels the pressure sometimes".

Amid the aftershock of Nadal's exit, the consensus among those playing in the "legends" event this week was that the final is most likely to be a Murray v Federer affair. This time a year ago, he took a big five-set win over Bernard Tomic and with a style that plays points quickly, he could put Murray under pressure that way.

After the Djokovic-Berdych match, Gilles Muller of Germany will see action on Court 1 against Marin Cilic of Croatia in what many believe to be the most competitive of the four Quarterfinal matches.

Wimbledon chief Richard Lewis said the schedule was based on fans' demand but former players, including three-time champion Chris Evert, insisted it wasn't good enough. Djokovic hasn't yet lost a set in this year's edition of Wimbledon. "Roger has an uncanny knack of being able to step it up when he needs to", he said, citing his fourth-round demolition of Grigor Dimitrov on Monday. Querrey hopes to make his first career grand slam semifinal.

A four-set win got Wimbledon underway for Paire against Rogerio Dutra Da Silva, before he came away with a straight-sets victory over the more fancied Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

That being said, Raonic is facing a well-rested and free-of-injury Federer while the injury bug hit the Canadian this year. This is Querrey's second career quarterfinal, as he made the quarters in last years Wimbledon.

This year the grass at what is considered to be tennis' most prestigious tournament is coming under scrutiny, especially after American Bethanie Mattek-Sands badly injured her knee in a fall while approaching the net in a second-round clash on Thursday against Sorana Cirstea. He has already hit 66 aces this tournament but will be interesting to see how his serve matches up against one of the best returners in the game against Zverev.

Victoria Azarenka versus Simona Halep is the marquee match in the women's last 16. She has dropped sets along the way but her game is constantly improving.

Andy Murray will need to repel a barrage of hostile deliveries to keep his Wimbledon title defence alive.
