Semi-Final Showdown

Semi-Final Showdown

Kicking off day five on Centre Court is Brazil’s Marcelo Melo and Belarusian Max Mirnyi taking on the UK’s Dominic Inglot and Romanian Florin Mergea

Melo and Mirnyi fought off Kiwi duo Finn Tearney and Wesley Whitehouse in the first round, before defeating Andre Begemann and Robin Haase in the quarter-final. 

This afternoon catch South African Raven Klaasen and India’s Leander Paes as they take on Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares.


Our first singles match of the day is the all-French semi-final between Adrian Mannarino, and ‘lucky loser’ Lucas Pouille

This is Pouille’s first ever ATP semi-final, and Mannarino’s first since 2011. The pair know each other well, and often train together.

Our second singles semi-final sees qualifier Jiri Vesely take on the tournament’s last standing seeded player, Kevin Anderson.

Vesely and Anderson have met once before in the Australian Open last year, with Anderson beating Vesely in five sets, after digging out of a two set deficit. 

Vesely and Anderson stand at 6’6” and 6’8” respectively, so it will be the battle of the big serve.
