Day 8 Main Picks:

Alexander Zverev vs Taylor Fritz

Zverev @1/2

The German has looked extremely comfortable and has yet to drop a set. It’s always been somewhat of a confusion why he has lacked success on the grass due to his big-hitting game and rapid serve. Perhaps it comes down to his tendency to return to type and grind things from the baseline when he’s under pressure rather than playing to his strengths. Either way, Taylor Fritz was a quarter-finalist at Wimbledon before and is coming off a title at Eastbourne, so he will need to bring his a-game. Both men’s main weapons are their backhand, so expect to see many cross-court rallies on that side. Zverev will edge in an evenly fought contest.

 

Alex de Minaur vs Arthur Fils

Minaur  -5.5 @4/5

De Minaur has had the easiest route to the fourth round. He did not drop a set in the opening two rounds before receiving a walkover in the third round. The Australian is likely to grind down Fils, who played a tough five-setter in the last round. Any loss in energy will be pounced upon by the rock-solid de Minaur.

 

Lorenzo Musetti vs Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard

Perricard @10/11

They recently played in Stuttgart, with Musetti winning through a couple of 11-9 tie-breaks. The Italian couldn’t convert any of his 8 break points in that match, not facing any himself. But that was on the old-school German and the conditions are a bit slower here. Ironically that might actually be better for Mpetshi Perricard, who’ll still be tough to break but should make some impact on return this time around.

 

Novak Djokovic vs Holger Rune

Djokovic @3/10

This has been a tricky matchup in the past for Djokovic. Rune does not have any major weakness to target and is solid all-round, which may be why the 24-time Grand Slam champion has found it tough. However, grass is where we think Rune is least likely to topple Djokovic, even though he has not been at his best so far.

 

Jelena Ostapenko vs Yulia Putintseva

Putintseva @1/1

Putintseva stunning Iga Swiatek understandably got a lot of attention, but Ostapenko was also very good against Bernarda Pera in the last round. At her best, the Latvian is hard for anyone to stop. Nonetheless, Were still backing Putintseva to reach the quarterfinal. Not just because of her excellent form, but her craftiness and variety is an ideal style for disrupting Ostapenko’a power.

 

Danielle Collins vs Barbora Krejcikova

Collins @4/9

Collins will win this match if she produces her best tennis consistently enough. . She was unplayable at times during her victory in the last round against Beatriz Haddad Maia, although there were also a couple of looser spells from her as well. Krejcikova has a strong and complete game. But the way Collins has been playing when her game is firing, she could be set for a very deep run in her final Wimbledon appearance.

 

Elina Svitolina vs Wang Xinyu

Svitolina 2-0 @5/4

Wang, who narrowly overcame Harriet Dart on Saturday, will need to produce the outstanding level she reached against Jessica Pegula in the second round to have a realistic chance. Svitolina’s level was terrific against Ons Jabeur, especially in the first set. We trust the Ukrainian to bring her best game more consistently than Wang to win in straight sets.

 

Elena Rybakina vs Anna Kalinskaya

Rybakina @1/4

Kalinskaya has not dropped a set yet at Wimbledon, although she will need to play better here than against Liudmila Samsonova, who seriously struggled against Kalinskaya. Rybakina will be tough for anyone to stop if she serves as well as her last match against Caroline Wozniacki. Kalinskaya can match or, even better, Rybakina from the baseline, but were not sure she will be able to get into enough rallies to have a chance of winning.

 

 

We try to pick our favoured matches as we want wins and will only go for value, especially in the early rounds.
