Andy Murray Faces Tough Test At Wimbledon, Tommy Haas
Andy Murray of England
LONDON, England (—Andy Murray of England meets former world number two Tommy Haas of Germany in the gentlemen's third round singles today in what could be a very difficult contest for the Brit.

Murray, seeded 12th, is tied with Haas 1-1 head to head but lost their last meeting at Indian Wells in the round of sixteen this spring 2-6, 7-5, 6-3. In order to win Murray would need a successful coverage of the net and consistent serving to keep Haas at bay.

Andy Murray is tied with Tommy Haas of Germany head to head 1-1.

Caroline Wozniacki (DEN)[31] v. Jelena Jankovic (SRB)[2]
Wozniacki of Denmark is a talented player, but Jankovic if consistent should win.
Winner: Jankovic

Tommy Haas (GER) v. Andy Murray (GBR)[12]
In what could be the match of the day, England's Murray will try to counter the explosive all-court game of Haas with net play of his own. In this match of two determined players, I think the player that serves better will advance.
Winner: Haas

Nicolas Kiefer (GER)[27] v. Rafael Nadal (ESP)[2]
Kiefer would need to be aggressive, attack and keep Nadal on the run which will not be easy as Nadal has improved his grasscourt game.
Winner: Nadal

Venus Williams (USA)[7] v. Maria Jose Martinez sanchez (ESP)
Williams first serve combined with a consistent game should get her through matches on grass against most lower ranked players.
Winner: Williams

Janko Tipsarevic (SRB) v. Dmitry Tursunov (RUS)[25]
In beating the top American Andy Roddick, Tipsarevic showed he has a game to win on grass, but I think Tursunov's experience win be a deciding factor today.
Winner: Tursunov

Radek Stepanek (CZE)[16] v. Mikhail Youzhny (RUS)[17]
Both players can hit winners from most places on the court, but mentally Youzhny will be tougher I think.
Winner: Youzhny
