Unseeded Jiri Lehecka meets third seed Daniil Medvedev on Monday in the fourth round at Wimbledon. The winner of this match will next meet unseeded Christopher Eubanks or fifth-seed Stefanos Tsitsipas. Medvedev defeated Marton Fucsovics in four sets in the previous round. He had to come from a set down to win after dropping his first set of the competition. Medvedev is now targeting making the quarterfinals here for the first time in what is his sixth appearance at the tournament. The world number three could move into top position in the ATP if he is crowned champion at the All England Club. Medvedev has won five titles already and has compiled a 44-8 win-loss record thus far.
Jiri Lehecka is having quite the tournament. In what is his second appearance here, the Czech number one has set multiple personal records at the competition. Before this season, he had never won a match here and now is targeting his fourth victory. This season has seen him take a huge leap on grass and he will hope to ride this momentum deep into the tournament. To book this match with Medvedev, Lehecka battled for five sets with 16th seed Tommy Paul. The win bumped him up to 32nd place in the live ranking, a career-high. He has now won 26 of 43 matches with five of his victories coming on grass.
Our prediction for Daniil Medvedev v Jiri Lehecka is for Medvedev to win. Medvedev is a stronger player on grass than Lehecka. Having spent an hour less than Lehecka to win his last match, Medvedev will be fresher for this clash.
