Wimbledon 2022 schedule: Day 6 key matches and order of play

As has been the case for all previous days so far, the Wimbledon 2022 schedule is out for day six. And with it being a Saturday, I expect Wimbledon to be jam-packed in terms of fans and spectators around the grounds. But of course, not all matches will have the same quality of tennis or the same value in entertainment. And that’s precisely why I’ve put this quick breakdown together – to highlight the better games that you should try and tune in for.

Wimbledon 2022 schedule day six

Play is starting on the outdoor courts at 11 am sharp, unless weather interferes with the schedule. As for the main courts (Court 1 and Centre), the play won’t begin until 1:30 pm. So this means that you’ve still got plenty of time to read through the details here and get these matches in your diary. 

Top Games for Wimbledon Day Six

There are many third-round encounters being played today. And if you are heading to the grounds today or watching on TV, you are in for some classics. Below, you’ll see my top three games for the day according to the most recent Wimbledon 2022 schedule.

De Minaur vs Broady

This is the opening match scheduled on Court One. Of course, it involves the established Aussie, Alex de Minaur, going up against Liam Broady – the home favourite. Broady managed to take a huge win in the previous round against Schwartzman, taking him down in five sets. As for de Minaur, he already beat another home favourite in the form of Jack Draper in the last round. Could he make it two wins in a row against British players? Quite possibly. But either way, this should be a great match!

However, de Minaur might not be the most popular guy in SW19 if he does beat another Brit!

Badosa vs Kvitova

Shifting the attention to Centre Court now we have Kvitova against Badosa. This is the second match on Centre Court today, following Coco Gauff. I’ve picked this match above others since it promises to be a pretty close encounter. Badosa is a top 5 player, but Kvitova is in great form having won Eastbourne before Wimbledon. These two haven’t played each other in a long time too, so the outcome is somewhat more uncertain than others. Personally, I think Badosa might edge this one, but we will have to wait and see.

Tsitsipas vs Kyrgios

I’ve saved the best until last here, with Kyrgios vs Tsitsipas taking place as the final match on Court One. This one should be an absolute blockbuster, especially if Kyrgios keeps up the form he showed in the last match. However, Tsitsipas won’t go down without a fight, even if the grass isn’t exactly his favourite surface. Either way, this one promises some big serving, a few trick shows, and plenty of drama if the going gets tough! As for which way it might swing, I would probably say that Kyrgios has this in the bag.

But that’s the great thing about Nick Kyrgios – you just never know.
