As always, here at LWOT, we’ll be sharing our thoughts on all eight matches with you. We split the daily matches between this and separate article. Saturday’s matches are predicted by Jakub Bobro, Andy Watson and Fraser Learmonth. Who do you think will win?

Wimbledon Day 6 Women’s Predictions

Jessica Pegula vs Petra Martic

Jacob:
Pegula is already enjoying her best Wimbledon result, winning over tough opponents in Donna Vekic and Harriet Dart. Martic dominates the match 4:1 over the American and twice reached the second week here. It’s close, but I’ll go with the experienced Croatian here.
Prediction: Martic at 3

Andy:
Pegula had a tough test against Dart in the last round and she passed and found her game to be very good. Martic is an experienced fighter with a good grass game, so this is probably another step up, but one that Pegula can take.
Prediction: Pegula in 3

Fraser:
Martic continues his resurgence in 2022 with a third round Wimbledon. The Croatian faces a tough question here in Pegula, who has been one of the best players on the WTA this year. However, Martic has a great game on grass and I like her chances of an upset.
Prediction: Martic at 3

Paula Badosa vs Petra Kvitova

Jacob:
Probably match of the day for me. Badosa dropped just eight games in her first two matches against Louise Chirico and Irina Bara. Kvitova is aiming to reach the fourth round for only the second time since her last Wimbledon title in 2014. I expect a tight affair with the Spaniard who wins.
Prediction: Badosa in 3

Andy:
One of the matches of the day. Badass he’s had a chance to adapt to grass after two straight games, but it’s going to be anything but easy. Kvitova played almost the entire match against Bogdan like a dream until the winning crossbar was in sight. In the end, that’s probably why she won’t win the whole thing, but I think the Czech has the game, form and focus to beat Badosa.
Tip: Kvitova in the 2nd

Fraser:
Kvitova continues her quest for a third Wimbledon title against Bados in this match. The Spaniard couldn’t replicate her last year’s form and this is definitely not her favorite surface. Return the left side and continue on.
Tip: Kvitova in the 3rd

Harmony Tan vs Katie Boulter

Jacob:
Harmony Tan knocked out Serena Williams in a three-hour battle, was criticized by a potential doubles partner for pulling out, and came back to defeat Sara Sorribes Tormo. Boulter knocked out last year’s finalist Karolína Plíšková in an emotional victory dedicated to her grandmother, who recently passed away. They’re certainly happy to see each other across the net at this point in the competition, but I expect the Brit to win quite easily here.
Prediction: Boulter for 2

Andy:
I may be forced to eat my words, but I think Tan was pretty lucky with the opponents she faced. An exhausted Williams, though it took guts to get through it, and an all-too-sliced ​​happy Sara Sorribes Tormo. In Boulter, the Frenchwoman will have to contend with a confident Briton, gain the support of the crowd and familiarize herself with the courts. Boulter is also a very strong player who can force Tan to leave her comfort zone.
Prediction: Boulter for 2

Fraser:
Tan won’t make it easy for Boulter, but this is a fight the Brit should win. She will have the crowd behind her and is probably a better player on grass. Tan’s ability to keep her nerve has been impressive so far, especially when she beat Williams, but expect it to go too far for the Frenchwoman.
Prediction: Boulter for 3

Iga Swiatek vs Alize Cornet

Jacob:
Swiatek extended her winning streak to 37, but Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove certainly earned her the win when she bounced the Pole. Cornet, up to her first Wimbledon third rounder since 2016, he will certainly be buoyed by that matchup and may smell blood in the water. The an experienced French woman he knows how to fight and could make it difficult for Swiatek.
Prediction: Swiatek for 3rd

Andy:
The Pole was less than impressive despite continuing his winning streak to 37. Cornet should be well prepared for this and has a history of causing upsets. I think she could do it again and throw out the big favorite.
Prediction: Cornet for 3rd

Fraser:
Swiatek put in an exceptional performance in the final round to drop a set. However, the Pole found a way to win badly again and remains unbeaten in 7 tournaments. That streak should continue here against Cornet, who is a quality player but not at the same level as the world number one.
Prediction: Swiatek for 2nd
