As Wimbledon enters fourth day, 7-time Champion Roger Federer will be in action along with the likes of Rafaal Nadal, Andy Murray, Petra Kvitova in second round action.

Here are 5 matches you must watch on Day 4

  1. Vasek Pospisil Vs Fabio Fognini


Vasek Pospisil took the hard way out in his first round match against Vincent Millot to come through in five sets. The 25-year-old,who is projected as the next big thing to come from Canada will look to progress to the third round in Wimbledon for the first time in his career.

Fabio Fognini is an experienced campaigner and the Italian will try to win points with a big first serve as Pospisil can trouble Fognini with his powerful ground strokes.

Fognini won their only meeting at Cincinnati Masters in 2012.

Match Time: Around 5:30 pm IST.

Angelique Kerber looked in a hurry in her first round match against Carina Witthoeft as he double bagelled the German in just 45 minutes. Her opponent Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova came back from a set down to oust Mona Barthel.

Kerber reached the quarterfinals last year at Wimbledon before losing to eventual runner-up Eugenie Bouchard. Pavlyuchenkova leads the head-to-head 4-3, but three of those wins came in 2012-13 season on clay and hard courts.

Match Time: 4 pm IST.

  1. Rafael Nadal Vs Dustin Brown

2-time Champion Rafael Nadal is seeded 10 for this year’s Wimbledon Championships, but he looked in imperious form in his opening round straight sets win over Thomaz Bellucci. Dustin Brown is known for his big serves and the German took out Nadal at Halle last year.

The 30-year-old came through in his four sets against Yen-Hsun Lu in his first round match. Brown came into Wimbledon after losing to Nishikori in the fourth round at Halle. He could test Nadal in the early goings of the match, but the Spaniard has the firepower to overcome Brown.
