No Tsitsipas v Kyrgios on Centre Court? Outcry at Wimbledon schedule for Middle Saturday
There are some obvious omissions from the order of play on Centre Court for Saturday
There has been plenty of reaction to Wimbledon’s schedule for Middle Saturday – little of it positive.
The order of play puts the day’s obvious popcorn match – Nick Kyrgios versus Stefanos Tsitsipas – on No 1 Court, with British hope Katie Boulter against Harmony Tan, the conqueror of Serena Williams, out on Court No 2.
Instead, the Centre Court line-up consists of Coco Gauff against Amanda Anisimova, Paula Badosa against Petra Kvitova, followed by Lorenzo Sonego against Rafael Nadal.
No 1 Court also features Britain’s Liam Broady against Alex de Minaur, and world No 1 Iga Swiatek against Alize Cornet.
No 2 Court’s schedule includes Richard Gasquet against Botic van de Zandschulp, and Magdalena French against former champion Simona Halep.
