Soderling and Hewitt to serve up a treat

The remainder of the round 2 matches will be played tomorrow (Thursday). SW19 will be entertained by Serena Willaims, Roger Federer, Caroline Wozniacki and Robin Soderling.

Our first pick of the day is former world number 5 Fernando Gonzalez, the Chilean, making his way back up the World rankings following surgery on a hip and knee injury is pitted against South African Rik de Voest. Olympic medalist Gonzalez should prove too much for the 31 year old right handed player who is yet to reach the third round of any major tournament.

Our next choice is Melinda Czink. Czink dumped 10th seed Samantha Stosur out of the first round in straight sets, she is drawn against Anastasiya Yakimova of the Belarus in round 2. Czink, a former World top 40 player, was impressive in the dispatching of Stosur conceding just 7 games. We think she'll have too much for Yakimova who has previously fallen at this hurdle five times.

World Number 20 Shuai Peng meets British number 1 Elena Baltacha, both players have modest records at Wimbledon and will see this as a perfect opportunity to progress. Peng has previously beaten a selection of the worlds top females and should beat Ukrainian born Baltacha even with the majority of the crowd against her, Peng finally broke into the world top 20 after an impressive run in the 2011 French Open - a tournament she had to retire from through illness when facing reigning champion Francesca Schivone.

The Serbian and former World number 5 Ana Ivanovic faces 28 year old Greek player Eleni Daniilidou. A semi finalist back in 2007 Ivanovic comes into the tournament on the back off some poor form having only reached round three in her previous 5 tournaments. Daniilidou a former top 20 ranked player has enough to cause Ivanovic problems. We think that Ivanovic will eventually win the match however the Greek can certainly take a set.

Lleyton Hewitt, former World number 1 and 2002 Wimbledon winner plays fifth seed, Swede Robin Soderling in one of the games of the day, the pairing is the first match on centre court. Soderling comes into the tournament off of the back of 3 2011 tour titles and a quarter final defeat to the eventual French Open winner Rafael Nadal. Hewitt however withdrew from the Roland Garros tournament and expects to have to play with 'unrelenting' foot pain. We are expecting a close encounter with the eventual winner likely to face Bernard Tomic in round 3.

A 16 year old Tomic rejected the opportuinty to practice with Hewitt during 2009's Wimbledon much to the disbelief of Hewitt and his physio, Tomic's then trainer Rudy Sopko claimed that Hewitt was 'not good enough', since the spat the pair have shown little sign of reconcilliation and Hewitt will want to progress to prove a point against the now 18 year old. Despite a potential fairytale story for Hewitt, Soderling's form and ability and the question marks over Hewitt's fitness should see the Swede progress to round 3.
