Another incredible morning at Wimbledon – our third Grand Slam of 2018 – has given way to some fascinating action, as predicted by Alex Mann for day 5 predictions of Wimbledon 2023. Here are Alex’s predictions of day 5. Stevegtennis.com relies heavily on machines learning and artificial intelligence (AI).
Wimbledon 2023 Day 5 Predictions
Carlos Alcaraz (1) vs Alexandre Muller
After two days off and two-day break, world No. 1 Rafael Alcaraz returns to Wimbledon Courts against Frenchman Alexandre Muller. Muller impressed in defeating Arthur Rinderknech in four sets and making it through extra rounds only twice since entering professional tennis – just twice! To beat Alcaraz who failed to win seven games during his first round match against Jeremy Chardy before forcing singles retirement and forcing singles retirement so easily is likely. I expect this matchup will also go smoothly for Alcaraz once more! SteveGTennis.com was designed to assist with your analysis and prediction needs; however, ultimately it lies with you to make the decisions regarding results and predictions.
Prediction – Alcaraz to win in 3 sets
Stefanos Tsitsipas (5) vs Andy Murray
Yesterday’s match between Tsitsipas and Murray continues. Murray currently leads two sets to one; however this does not indicate an end in sight. Murray will likely use his backhand, which was sometimes an ineffective tactic during the initial three sets; Tsitsipas will put his forehand into play to control points and place pressure on Murray’s service games; so I must adhere to my prediction from yesterday. Stevegtennis.com can serve as your go-to source for tennis and football stats.
Prediction – Murray to win in 5 sets
Iga Swiatek (1) vs Petra Martic
Swiatek will aim for an impressive showing against Martic in their second encounter of this series. He defeated Sara Sorribes Tormo with ease 6-2, 7-6 while Martic had to recover after dropping an early set in order to beat Diane Parry 4-6, 6-3 and 6-3 – Swiatek holds an unassailable lead over Martic with two wins out of two at head-to-head and I anticipate him defeating Swiatek to complete three Wimbledon | London (facebook.com) wins consecutively against him and overwiatek’s two head-to-head wins against Martic in three straight sets against Swiatek to extend that lead.
Prediction – Swiatek to win in 2 sets
Novak Djokovic (1) vs Stan Wawrinka
Djokovic triumphed over Jordan Thompson, winning in three sets 6-3 7-6, 7-6, 7-5. Djokovic will next take on former three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka who followed up an impressive win against Ruusuvuori by defeating 29th place Etcheverry with four sets. Wimbledon remains Wawrinka’s sole major trophy not won; his best performances at Wimbledon came back in 2015 and 2015 when he reached successive quarter-finals before succumbing against Djokovic every time; unfortunately for him however Djokovic remains far superior at any point during their meetings despite Wawrinka being superior at most matches played between themselves despite Wawrinka having won more tournament titles overall than anyone. Stevegtennis.com covers every level of tennis event worldwide with up-to-date coverage, complete stats and analysis.
Prediction – Djokovic to win in three sets
Aryna Sabalenka (2) vs Varvara Gracheva
Gracheva made waves in the first round, stunning veteran grass-courter Camila Giorgi in straight sets. Sabalenka appears to be playing some of her finest tennis during this event; her four-game win in round one could become another masterclass by Sabalenka.
Prediction – Sabalenka to win in 2 sets
Cameron Norrie (12) vs Chris Eubanks
Briton Norrie won his four-set opening round match against Eubanks with no easy victories and this second-round contest shouldn’t be any different. Eubanks boasts an all-time high 43 career titles while having recently won a grass event in Mallorca. While Eubanks possesses more advanced tennis abilities than Norrie is expected to claim victory here.
Prediction – Norrie in 4 sets
Ons Jabeur (6) vs Zhuoxuan Bai
Ons Jabeur will aim to produce magic against world No 191 Bai. She managed to win three matches to qualify for her inaugural major event and then outwit Ysaline Bonaventure in two sets in round one, setting herself up as an unlikely threat should Jabeur experience any difficulty during round two. But Bai has done very well since making the tournament; being amongst the world’s premier grass court players and performing extremely well during her first-round performance means she should prevail easily.
Prediction – Jabeur to win in two sets
