Wimbledon day 6 recap: grass conditions, Mourinho and Serena Williams

At Wimbledon it was a day full of emotions, with the top-players of the London fortnight who did not disappoint. In fact, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Kei Nishikori, Petra Kvitova, Johanna Konta, Ashleigh Barty and Serena Williams are all qualified for the fourth round.

Serena could cross Barty's path in the quarter-finals, in what would be a stellar match. What happens to the grass of the Wimbledon courts? Although we are only in the middle of the tournament, the grass seems already very ruined, almost in an advanced state, as in the past years it happened towards the end of the tournament.

The heat of London these days has helped to ruin the courts, but that there may have been a problem with sowing? Mystery... José Mourinho, former manager of Internazionale Milan, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United, talked about Rafael Nadal: "What Rafa did in tennis is incredible, but I think he would have been a fantastic soccer player with his mentality, his body and his skills.

His uncle was a player of the Barcelona FC and I know for a fact that Nadal can play football very well." Andy Murray's adventure in the men's doubles at Wimbledon is over. The Scot and Herbert were in fact eliminated by Mektic and Skugor in four sets.

In the mixed doubles, he got his first win with Serena Williams! Tomorrow Middle Sunday! There will be no matches scheduled at Wimbledon, as tradition dictates. The challenges will be played on Manic Monday, with the fourth rounds of both men's singles and women's singles.
