Digitally cleared daily wrap from 2022 Wimbledon Championships

Rafael Nadal, Coco Gauff and Iga Swiatek highlight the action on Day 6 at Wimbledon on a packed schedule of matches that will also see Great Britain’s Katie Boulter and Liam Broady bid to make the fourth round.

Gauff kicks off the action on Center Court against Amanda Anisimova, Nadal faces Lorenzo Sonego later on the main stage while Swiatek plays Alize Cornet on Court No 1, with all three stars still searching for their top form on the grass courts at SW19.

After Boulter’s stunning win over Karolina Pliskova, she faces Harmony Tan in the opening match of the day on Court No 2. Tan shocked Serena Williams with a memorable win in the opening round. Broady, meanwhile, takes on the impressive Alex De Minaur – Boulter’s boyfriend -, who outlasted Jack Draper in a thrilling battle on Thursday.

Elsewhere, Nick Kyrgios faces Stefanos Tsitsipas in a blockbuster clash last up on Court No 1. Kyrgios produced a faultless performance to destroy Filip Krajinovic in the second round and a shock could be on the cards if the fiery Australian can get in the zone once again .

*Harmony Tan 5-1 Katie Boulter – Tan BREAKS AGAIN!

Harmony Tan isn’t a particularly powerful hitter but she varies up the pace, angle and spin of her shorts.

She’s in complete control here and a well-constructed point ends with a forehand winner for 0-30. Now 0-40 and three break points.

Boulter saves the first with a clean winner but then puts a forehand from the baseline into the net. It’s a DOUBLE BREAK for Tan.

Harmony Tan 4-1 Katie Boulter*

Can Katie Boulter build on that first hold of the day? Errrm, well she can’t…

Tan quickly to 30-0 and although she puts a forehand into the net, a stunning backhand down the line brings up game points and she converts at the first time of asking.

*Harmony Tan 3-1 Katie Boulter

Boulter thrives on dominating rallies but Tan is dictating play and, as quick as a flash, it’s 0-30. Good battling from the Brit, a couple of heavy serves gets here to 30-30.

Oooh, that’s a gorgeous cross-court forehand – Boulter steps into it and finds the back corner for a clean winner. Her best shot of the day by far. But a backhand into the middle of the net brings up deuce.

Now a break point for Tan – SAVED! Tan goes long for Boulter’s advantage and then a forehand winner down the line! Boulter is on the board!

Harmony Tan 3-0 Katie Boulter*

Not the start Boulter wanted – Tan has settled superbly here on Court No 2.

Finally a net cord goes Boulter’s way for 15-15 but another beautifully constructed point from her opponent swings the momentum back. Tan is happy to come into the net in the early going.

A big serve and some deep ground strokes see her to another comfortable hold. This first set already in danger of getting away from the Brit and we’re only three games in!

*Harmony Tan 2-0 Katie Boulter – Tan BREAKS!

A double fault from Boulter takes the score to 15-15 and she goes long with a forehand on the next point for 15-30. Looks like a string might have popped, so it’s a quick racket change for the Brit.

A long rally then ends with Tan coming into the net, a friendly net cord and it’s two break points. First saved with a neat forehand volley. Another net cord for Tan and she lobs Boulter for the winner. An early break for the French player.

Harmony Tan 1-0 Katie Boulter*

A between-the-legs hotdog shot from Tan in the opening game, although she ultimately loses that point.

A couple of unforced errors from Boulter as she struggles to settle and a relatively comfortable hold of serve to 15 for the Frenchwoman.

Katie Boulter vs Harmony Tan

So who is Harmony Tan? The Frenchwoman is enjoying her best week at a grand slam and it began by beating Serena Williams in Round 1.

She then pulled out of doubles action citing a thigh injury, leaving her partner Tamara Korpatsch absolutely fuming. Korpatsch took to social media to rant about being informed at the last minute, before going on to send a sarcasm-laced message of congratulations to Tan following her second-round victory…

We’re about to get underway on Court 2.

Katie Boulter vs Harmony Tan

Not since 1979 have Britain had three or more players through to the fourth round of Wimbledon in either the men’s or women’s singles draw.

Cam Norrie and Heather Watson did their job yesterday, now it’s up to Katie Boulter and Liam Broady. Boulter and Tan now out on court.

Katie Boulter on Court No 2

There’s been a bit of controversy around the Wimbledon scheduling today, with Katie Boulter opening up proceedings on Court No 2 rather than being given a prime slot on one of the show courts.

The line-ups on Center and Court No 1 are good but you’d say there are definitely a couple of matches that could easily have been bumped to Court 2 in place of Boulter…

Center Court (from 1.30pm)

  • Coco Gauff (11) vs Amanda Anisimova (20)
  • Paula Bados (4) vs Petra Kvitova (25)
  • Lorenzo Sonego (27) vs Rafael Nadal (2)

Court One (from 1pm)

  • Alex de Minaur (10) vs Liam Broady (GBR)
  • Iga Swiatek (1) vs Alize Cornet
  • Nick Kyrgios vs Stefanos Tsitsipas (4)

Katie Boulter vs Harmony Tan

Right, let’s turn our attention to Katie Boulter, who has the chance to advance to the second week of Wimbledon as she takes on Harmony Tan shortly.

Boutler shocked last year’s Wimbledon finalist and former World No 1 Karolina Pliskova on Thursday in an emotional three-set win on Center Court.

The British player dedicated the best victory of her career to her late grandmother, who Boulter revealed after the match had died just two days earlier.

Katie Boulter cries as she dedicates her Wimbledon win to her grandmother who died this week

An emotional Katie Boulter broke down in tears as she stunned former world No1 Karolina Pliskova at Wimbledon, achieving the greatest moment of her career so far. The British wildcard dedicated the win to her late grandmother, who passed away on Tuesday. She also thanked the crowd for inspiring her to victory in her debut match on Center Court. “My gran passed away two days ago, so I’d like to dedicate that to her today,” Boulter said. She will face Harmony Tan in the third round on Saturday. Click here to sign up for our newsletters.
