On Day 6 of Wimbledon 2019, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are set to compete in their respective third round matches. Federer will take on Lucas Pouille whereas Nadal will compete against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Federer had a slow start in Wimbledon 2019 when he lost his opening set against Lloyd Harris. However, he revived himself and went on to win the match followed by straight sets victory in Round 2. He is now up against his first tricky challenge of the season in Lucas Pouille.
Pouille is yet to drop a set and this match may be the first time when he is not leading in the match. Although he lost his last and only match against Federer back in 2014, this is the golden chance for the 25-ear old Frenchman to announce his potential.
