Vasek Pospisil and Viktor Troicki meet in the fourth round of the 2015 Wimbledon.
Vasek Pospisil is coming off a five set victory over James Ward, which finished in five hours. Pospisil has played 14 sets this tournament and more than eight and a half hours of tennis. Pospisil is winning at least 83 percent of his first serve points and 48 percent of his second serve points. Pospisil has combined for 42 aces and 103 winners in his last two matches. Pospisil has relied on his power to get to this point and has limited his unforced errors to 50 in his last two matches. Pospisil is playing some of his best tennis and will be tough to beat as long as he’s winning 80-plus percent of his first serve points. Pospisil has never played in the fourth round of a grand slam. A third round appearance in the Australian Open was the furthest Pospisil ever reached.
Viktor Troicki is off a four set win over Dustin Brown, which went just over two hours. Troicki has played eight sets overall and over five and a half hours of tennis. Troicki is winning at least 76 percent of his first serve points and 44 percent of his second serve points. Troicki has combined for 36 aces and 98 winners in his last two matches. Troicki is also dominating his service game, especially when getting his first serve in play. Troicki has been very tough to break this tournament and has a shot at a career turning victory if that continues. Troicki has never surpassed the fourth round of a grand slam. This will be the second time Troicki reached the fourth round of the Wimbledon.
This will be the first time these two play each other.
This will be an interesting match between two guys with similar styles and who have never been in a position like this. This is a big match that could be the turning point for the victor. However, Troicki is in better form right now and has had to play less tennis. I value fatigue at this point in the tournament and think Troicki pulls it out.
