Kaja Juvan v Coco Gauff [20] H2H & Match Fundamentals

Kaja Juvan v Coco Gauff [20] H2H: Tied at 1-1
Wimbledon London, UK
Grass (O) Prize Money: £115,000
First on Centre Court, at 1:30 pm BBC Sport

There is a sense that it will be a new name on the trophy this year, as less of the old guard remain, save for Angelique Kerber, and if we are hunting for a new name, then why not Coco Gauff?

She has already proved that she has the capability to win on a run on the grass, and given that she and Kaja Juvan are tied in their head-to-head, it won’t all be her own way, which makes the second week all the more interesting.

Her shot selection and thought process in the court has improved a lot and experience will probably be a little too much for Juvan but she had to go the distance with her earlier this year.

Prediction: Gauff in three sets.

Felix Auger-Aliassime [16] v Nick Kyrgios H2H: Auger Aliassime leads 1-0
Wimbledon London, UK
Grass (O) Prize Money: £115,000
Second on Court 1, not before 2:30pm BBC Sport

Felix Auger-Aliassime showed a lot of grit and determination to see through a tough match against Mikael Ymer, in the fading light, and had to settle himself after the Swede suffered a tricky fall.

Also awkwardly on the deck was the returning Nick Kyrgios, who has made it very clear what he thinks of the grass. The last time they played the antics were shrugged off by the Canadian as being just Nick, and he has zero expectations out here as he makes his comeback to the tour.

What both players do have in common is a great ability for shot-making and crowd-pleasing tennis. You would have to say that Auger-Aliassime has just a tad more (!) self-control that Kyrgios.

Prediction: Auger-Aliassime in four sets.

Third on Centre Court, not before 5pm BBC Sport

As more seeds tumbled away before the second week, the coast is clear for Barty to really make that play for being the last seed standing, clutching a second Slam title.

She has looked much improved round on round having been a little rusty and also dealing with injuries since the clay court season, and she she looked decidedly rusty in her first round match against Carla Suarez-Navarro, it looked decidedly better in the second round.

Czech Katerina Siniakova comes in with a good amount of form having reached the Bad Homburg final although found herself tested by a returning Coco Vandeweghe.

Expect this to be a tough battle for Barty.

Prediction: Barty in three sets
