Wimbledon 2022 Day 6 is today and entry to the second week of the tournament is just a round away. Rafael Nadal and Iga Swiatek have their matches today and their fans are expecting a lot better performance from them. They both underperformed in their last encounter and showed some weakness. They even lost a set but managed to win in the end. As for Rafa, in his first two rounds, he has lost a set each. He doesn’t look at his best yet and his fans want him to make it to the second week of the tournament. With more matches, we all are sure that Rafa will find his form. Iga also looks a bit tense in her games. The fact that she is on a 37-match winning streak might be putting her under a little extra pressure.
But the mouthwatering clash on day 6 is definitely Nick Kyrgios vs Stefano Tsitsipas. Nick is unseeded in the tournament and this is the reason why these two are facing each other so early in the tournament. Nick faced a tough challenge in his opening round which he narrowly won in five sets. Tsitsipas on the other hand has started strong. In both the rounds, he has had a comfortable win. Now it will be very interesting to see what happens in the third round of Wimbledon 2022.
Let’s have a look at today’s matches.

Wimbledon 2022 Day 6: Rafa Faces L. Sonego And Iga Vs A. Cornet
Wimbledon 2022 Day 6 will be headlining with Rafa’s third-round encounter with L.Sonego. The #27 seed has been good so far, making it to the third round. The way Rafa is playing right now is not a good visual. It took Rafa four sets in both rounds to win against the unseeded players. He will have to work a lot harder to have a good chance against the Italian. If Rafa manages to reach the second week of Wimbledon, then the tournament will be more interesting than ever before. Novak and Alcaraz are already at the doorsteps of the second week. There is no way Rafa would like to be left behind.
Iga Swiatek had an easy first round and a very difficult second round. She doesn’t like the Iga we have seen in recent times. But this is what champions are made of. They still find a way to win even when they don’t play at their best. This applies to both Iga and Rafa. Swiatek has her match against France’s A. Cornet. Though unseeded in the tournament she must not be taken lightly at any cost. She is on a 37-match winning streak and will look to make it 38 today.
Kyrgios Vs Tsitsipas
This will probably be the best match of Wimbledon 2022, Day 6. These two players share history with each other. They have had altercations in the past and then later even showed friendly gestures to each other. Apart from this, they are really good tennis players. Their recent form has not been great and this is a perfect opportunity to test each other. Make sure you don’t miss one. It has the potential to go the distance.
