After an early first round blip against Britain’s Jack Draper, Novak Djokovic has been in superior form not giving his opponents any opportunity to build confidence or hope. Now the world number one has his sights set on a third consecutive Wimbledon title and is still the overwhelming favourite to do so.

Standing in Djokovic’s way next is Hungarian Marton Fucsovics who is the first Hungarian male to reach the last eight at a grand slam for 30 years. After overcoming a psychological obstacle in his five set win over Andrey Rublev, Fucsovics now has his sights set on over-powering the world number one.

Fucsovics has been a nightmare match-up for Djokovic in the past with the Hungarian taking the top seed to his limits at the US Open a few years ago. However this match should be a lot different with Djokovic seemingly in unstoppable form right now.

Prediction: Djokovic in straight sets

After enduring a five set match against Philipp Kohlschreiber, Denis Shapovalov has looked mightily impressive with comfortable wins over Andy Murray and Roberto Bautista Agut securing his grand slam breakthrough. Now the Canadian has arguably his best chance ever to reach a maiden grand slam semi-final.

As for the Russian, he has endured a couple of big tests against Frances Tiafoe and Sebastian Korda to reach the last eight. The match against Korda had 19 breaks of serve in the match and will need to post better serving numbers if he wants to finally match the expectation people have put on his shoulders and reach a grand slam semi-final.

Shapovalov’s renewed mix of patience and aggression should see the Canadian cruise through with the Russian’s lack of confidence on serve being easy pickings for the 10th seed.

Prediction: Shapovalov in straight sets.

Matteo Berrettini has firmly backed up many people’s expectation of a deep run at Wimbledon after winning the title at Queen’s Club. The Italian has breezed into the last eight with relative ease and it will take something special to stop him from making a first grand slam final.

Could that something special be Felix Auger-Aliassime? After the Canadian’s mental weaknesses in finals and against big players, the 16th seed finally put those doubts to rest with a massive five set win over Alexander Zverev. Auger-Aliassime will hope that this now sets the tone for something to build on as he will hope to make a big grand slam breakthrough.

There is no doubt that this will be Berrettini’s biggest challenge of the tournament but the Italian may just have too much on serve for the Canadian. Expect tiebreaks aplenty and a dramatic afternoon between these two, one things for sure and that’s the return will be key.

Prediction: Berrettini in four sets.

After stumbling past Adrian Mannarino and Cameron Norrie, Roger Federer produced a dominant display over Lorenzo Sonego to reach his 58th grand slam quarter-final. Now the eight-time champion is looking to keep the momentum going as he looks for the elusive 21st grand slam title of his career.

Hubert Hurkacz is into his first grand slam quarter-final in impressive fashion having not lost his serve in his opening three matches before gaining the biggest win of his career against Daniil Medvedev in five sets. Now the Miami champion is looking to take his big serving and impressive net play to try and stop the best grass court player of all time.

This should be a really tricky test of Federer’s ability to serve well, return well and be patient in rallies. This match could go all the way but Federer is still the favourite to reach another Wimbledon semi-final.

Prediction: Federer in four sets.
