Overview

Now that the favourite to win the 2016 Wimbledon title, Novak Djokovic, has crashed out, Murray is in with a chance. He is yet to drop a set in the tournament cruising past opponents Liam Broady, Yen-Hsun Lu and John Millman. The Scot has not been affected by frequent rain interruptions and has been surprisingly efficient on court against lower ranked opponents, which was not the case earlier.

His reunion with coach Ivan Lendl is already paying dividends, with the Briton looking more confident. What goes in his favour are his relentless defensive skills which make opponents play that one extra ball. He also has the backing of the crowd.

Kyrgios comes into this clash after fighting his way through an extremely challenging draw, arguably the toughest of a round 16 competitor. The Australian had to face Radek Stepanek, Dustin Brown and Feliciano Lopez on his way to the fourth round, which will ensure that he is in top form on Monday.

The 21-year-old has made significant improvement both on and off the court this season, winning his maiden ATP title in Marseille, reaching his first ever Masters semi-final at Miami and cracking the top-20 for the first time in his career. The Australia No 1 is still prone to meltdowns on court, but that is just part of his combative nature.
