Robin Haase – Juan Martin Del Potro
When Del Potro reached the fourth round last year he played out 5 tie breaks on the way. Haase is the kind of player who’s often able to push the big names in these tournaments. He once has Nadal in 5 sets here.
Kevin Anderson – Grigor Dimitrov
They’ve met 4 times before, with the stat saying 2-2. The 2 wins for Dimitrov have both been on grass.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Lleyton Hewitt
They have played twice before, with Tsonga winning both. One of these was on grass where Tsonga won 7-6 7-6.
Jurgen Melzer – Stanislas Wawrinka
The clay is probably Melzers strongest surface and Wawrinka has hammered him on this surface in their 2 most recent meetings. The latest one was in May. A sign of what will happen today, I think.
Philipp Kohlschreiber – Tommy Haas
They have met each other 3 times, all 3 times on grass and every time the match has had at least 1 tie break to offer. They played only recently in Halle with Haas winning in 2 sets 7-6 7-5.
