Lleyton Hewitt Meets Roger Federer At Wimbledon
Lleyton Hewitt of Australia
LONDON, England (lawntennismag.com)20th seeded Lleyton Hewitt of Australia took the Wimbledon gentlemen's singles title in 2002 and is the last player to win the men's singles title other than world number one Roger Federer of Switzerland. Today in the fourth round the two past champions meet.

Both Williams sisters of the USA, defending champion and 7th seeded Venus Williams and 6th seeded and 2003 champion Serena Williams take to Court 2 today. The Williams sisters could only meet Saturday in the ladies' final as they were drawn on opposite halves of the draw.

All 32 singles players left in the two draws are scheduled for today including hometown favorite and 12th seeded Andy Murray of England.

Lleyton Hewitt of Australia took the gentlemen's singles title in 2002.

Roger Federer (SUI)[1] v. Lleyton Hewitt (AUS)[20]
Federer leads Hewitt head to head 13-7 and has won their last 11 matches in a row. Hewitt won the title in 2002, but since then it's been all Federer.
Winner: Federer

Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)[4] v. Agnieszka Radwanska (POL)[14]
Kuznetsova used to be considered the most talented of all the female Russians before several passed her in terms of winnings. She's struggled to close out some recent matches and will need to overpower Radwanska to win.
Winner: Kuznetsova

Richard Gasquet (FRA)[8] v. Andy Murray (GBR)[12]
Murray goes for the upset and could win if he continues his form of late.
Winner: Murray

Mikhail Youzhny (RUS)[17] v. Rafael Nadal (ESP)[2]
Nadal leads 6-4 head to head including a 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 win exactly one year ago at Wimbledon. Nadal has improved his grass game since then which is bad news for Youzhny.
Winner: Nadal

Venus Williams (USA)[7] v. Alisa Kleybanova (RUS)
Williams hit a 127 mile per hour ace out wide, the fastest female serve ever hit at Wimbledon, to close out her last match. I get the feeling even if Venus is not playing well, she will find a way to win most matches on grass.
Winner: Williams

Bethanie Mattek (USA) v. Serena Williams (USA)[6]
Serena Williams has the best second serve in women's tennis and doesn't really have any weaknesses in her game other than a body which is prone to injury. Could be another Williams final Saturday.
Winner: Williams
