3rd round match between Guido Pella and Mackenzie McDonald.
This is one of the matches where I prefer not to think too much and just go with the moment! What does it mean? Well, yesterday Guido Pella produced the biggest surprise in Wimbledon 2018 eliminating one of the top favourites Marin Cilic after a brilliant comeback, being 0:2 sets down. And on the next day you have an opportunity to reach the 1/8 finals facing player out of top 100, the youngster McDonald.
Both of them played a lot of matches on grass before Wimbledon without much success. Here they played equal time on the courts- started with four-set wins over Kubler and Berankis, while in the 2nd round they eliminated Cilic and Jarry in long five-set matches. Mc Donald has one more day for rest before this big match, because he played against Jarry two days ago, but the momentum is totally with Pella.
I don’t think this amazing win against Cilic will dazzle his mind and he will be even much more confident in himself. Most of the times such big wins inspire the players and we can expect something big from them in the tournament. Mackenzie is talented youngster, while Pella is much more experienced as a player.
I will go with the moment and Pella, expect this win to inspire him even more and to progress to the 1/8 finals.
