  • Janowicz, Melzer aim for Wimbledon quarterfinals

    Janowicz, Melzer aim for Wimbledon quarterfinals A Wimbledon quarterfinal spot will be at stake when Jerzy Janowicz meets Jurgen Melzer on Monday. Both men are hoping to capitalize on a huge opportunity with Roger Federer gone from this eighth of the draw.

    Jerzy Janowicz and Jurgen Melzer will be squaring off for the first time in their careers when they collide in the Wimbledon fourth round on Monday.

    Janowicz has been inconsistent for much of 2013 in the aftermath of his breakout last fall at the Paris Masters, but some decent results include a quarterfinal appearance in Rome and a third-round showing at the French Open. The 22nd-ranked Pole also reached the last 32 at the All-England Club in 2012 and he has already clinched his best-ever Grand Slam result by taking out Kyle Edmund, Radek Stepanek, and Nicolas Almagro without dropping a single set.

    Melzer dismissed both Fabio Fognini and Julian Reister in four sets before getting to play Sergiy Stakhovsky instead of Roger Federer. The 32-year-old Austrian ended the Ukrainian's run in four sets on Friday to book his place in the last 16 at the All-England Club for the second time (2010). Melzer is 18-17 for the season, which includes a quarterfinal run at the Miami Masters.

    The underdog's lefty game could trouble Janowicz, just as it did Stakhovsky. Still, Janowicz boasts a massive game that can do damage on grass and he mixes in some impressive touch along with his serve and forehand. Look for the 24th seed to advance in four sets.
