Tennis Tips – Wimbledon Day 4 Tips

Iga Swiatek - Expert Tennis Tips

As we round out the second-round, expect to see more seeds bow out in both the men’s and women’s draws. See all our Wimbledon betting previews here.

Best Bet

Brandon Nakashima +3
Line - Denis Shapovalov vs Brandon Nakashima

The grass court lead-up for young American Brandon Nakashima holds him in great stead for this second-round clash with Denis Shapovalov.

Nakasahima has an 8-3 record on grass this year, while Shapovalov still appears out of sorts. Prior to the Canadian’s first round win, he had lost his last six matches including three on grass. His first-round victory over Arthur Rinderknech was underwhelming needing to go to five sets, and the solid play of an improving Nakashima should provide more issues than the Frenchman. The American is value at $2.32 to record a win, but our best is the +3 game handicap.

Next Best

Over 36.5
Total Games - Jordan Thompson vs Stefanos Tsitsipas

Australian Jordan Thompson can challenge Stefanos Tsitsipas in this, and if he’s capable of taking a set we should see the total games go over the total games line of 36.5.

Two of Tsitsipas’ four sets in the first round went to 7 with the total games hitting 44, with all seven of his four-set matches in the last 52 weeks going over the 36.5 total games line.

The form line of Jordan Thompson has been strong on the grass – the Australian is 12-3 on the surface this year, and between 2019 and 2021 his grass record was 15-9. With grass Tsitsipas’ weakest surface, the Australian can make a match of this.

Iga Swiatek -8
Line - Iga Swiatek vs Lesley Kerkhove

A huge game handicap for Iga Swiatek, but she simply bullies lowly ranked opponents and against the 138th ranked Lesley Kerkhove we could potentially see a double-bagel.

Kerkhove made the main draw at Wimbledon as a lucky loser and this is now the ultimate test after a first-round win. From Swiatek’s 8 matches against opponents ranked 101+ this year, she has covered the -8 game handicap in six of them including the first-round against Jana Fett. This will be over in 45 minutes.

Alex Molcan +3
Line - Marcos Giron vs Alex Molcan

The odds for Slovakian Alex Molcan appear way overs in this contest with Marcos Giron, with the leftie producing a solid first-round victory against Pedro Martinez.

Ranked 14 spots above his American opponent, Molcan defeated Miomir Kecmanovic at Mallorca in the lead-up, which is strong enough form to take him at the plus game handicap in this match.

Giron has a 12-20 record for the year, with him entering this $1.56 favourite – likely off the back of his first-round win over clay courter Holger Rune. The Slovakian is more than capable of an upset here.

Over 36.5
Total Games - Lorenzo Sonego vs Hugo Baston

Solid first-round win by Lorenzo Sonego against Denis Kudla which went the distance, and we can expect a similarly long match when he faces Hugo Gaston.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has made a nice run of late after a horror start to 2022, reaching the Quarter Final at Hertogenbosch and backing that up with a tough first-round win over Alexei Popyrin.

The hot-and-cold nature of Sonego leaves the door open for Gaston, and with there being a strong likelihood that we’ll see a tie-breaker throughout the match we should see this eclipse the 36.5 total games line.

Value Bet

Viktorija Golubic
Win - Viktorija Golubic vs Barbora Krejcikova

After providing the tip of Niemeier defeating the second seed Anett Kontaveit yesterday, expect another seed to bow out. Barbora Krejcikova hasn’t been the same since returning from injury, bowing out in the first-round of the French Open and at Eastbourne in the lead-up, with this match screaming danger.

Viktorija Golubic enters Wimbledon off a Semi Final appearance at Nottingham, and was a Quarter Finalist at Wimbledon last year. The Swiss can cause more damage to an already depleted women’s draw.
