ASH BARTY Live in Primetime plus NICK KYRGIOS to face RAFAEL NADEL - WIMBLEDON Day 4 tonight on SEVEN
Ash Barty continues her Wimbledon campaign on Thursday night, while Nick Kyrgios faces No.3 seed Rafael Nadal in a highly anticipated clash as Australia’s four remaining singles hopes take to the court at The Championships live and free on Seven.
Barty kicks off the night’s play at 8.00pm (AEST) in the opening feature match against unseeded Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck, and tennis fans best fire up the kettle and get comfy on the couch as day four is jam-packed full of Aussies in action, including Alex De Minaur (25th seed) and 2018 US Open quarter-finalist John Millman.
Barty is bidding to break a 39-year drought for Australia in the women’s singles at Wimbledon, but Van Uytvanck is a dangerous opponent and reached the fourth round at The Championships last year.
Kyrgios is aiming to repeat his memorable win over Nadal in the fourth round at the All-England Club five years ago, and will take confidence from his victory over the Spanish maestro in their most recent meeting at February’s Mexican Open. The rivals’ sometimes testy off-court relationship adds extra spice to an already tantalising centre court clash.
The top-ranked Australian in the men’s draw De Minaur takes on unseeded American Steve Johnson, while Millman meets 31st seed Laslo Djere of Serbia.
