15:00 Carlos Alcaraz vs Novak Djokovic

Carlos Alcaraz

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.70

Win

35

And we come to the end of another soggy and poorly organised Wimbledon event. To have a few roofs to cover courts when it rains (and it rains all the time) highlights that Wimbledon is way behind the times. So we have Novak in the finals. He reminds us of Navratilova - dominant Wimbledon player - who was rudely shoved aside by a younger and eager player called Graf. And that's Carlos in today's world. Navratilova was never the same when Graf took over - and the same will be for Novak, his reign is over too.
13:00 Martina Trevisan vs Ann Li

Martina Trevisan

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.83

Win

41

As per normal, all the higher ranked players disappeared before the finals, leaving Martina to uphold the seedings. What's the point of rankings, if they are meaningless ? Anyway, Martina has a great chance to win this low grade event, against an unknown player. But we also know that the difference between 'what should happen' and 'what does happen' - highlights the instability of the women's circuit...

15:00 Mayar Sherif vs Selena Janicijevic

Mayar Sherif

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.13

Win

6

Mayar was a steady player last year, making slow movements up the rankings. We were concerned that she may play herself into the ground, and it looked like it happened - as she disappeared from some time. She's back again, and needs to rebuild her ranking again. She's playing a very low grade event and really should win the thing!
14:00 Barbora Krejcikova vs Jasmine Paolini

Jasmine Paolini

Win Match

50 WIN

@2.20

Lose

-50

Jasmine is having the time of her life at the moment. She's held onto the euphoria of making the French Open final and now made the finals of Wimbledon. Was it unexpected ? Probably. But when the top women consistently fail to uphold their rankings from tournament to tournament, a few smart players can take advantage. So can Barbora stop her ? She's shown signs of grit - which hasn't been apparent for many years. Nevertheless, let's see Jasmine become another one-off champion - to continue the trend of the last 5 years!

13:30 Lorenzo Musetti vs Novak Djokovic

Lorenzo Musetti

Win Match

50 WIN

@6.00

Lose

-50

Its all happening for Novak. The cards are falling his way. A walkover in the quarters must be a sign that things are going right for him - finally ? He faces unknown Lorenzo on his march to the finals. But he lost to another Italian - Nardi - in a huge upset - earlier this year. Surely another upset can't be on the cards. We think it is...
11 July 2024
15:15 Barbora Krejcikova vs Elena Rybakina

Barbora Krejcikova

Win Match

50 WIN

@5.00

Win

200

Elena is the last higher seed standing. Can she uphold women's tennis from becoming another farce at Wimbledon ? Probably not. Already waiting for the winner of this match - is a player who has never done well at Wimbledon. So what's new! The prior winners in recent years have also been unknowns. Can Barbora make it a true travesty by making the final - while ranked in the 30s. Of course she can.

13:00 Alex De Minaur vs Novak Djokovic

Alex De Minaur

Win Match

50 WIN

@3.60

Void

Its getting to the nitty gritty. Can Novak make an impact here, where he has failed in every tournament in the last 7 months ? Who knows ? What we do know, is that if Alex wants to be known as a real contender, he needs to beat a big player at a big tournament. The chance in now, good luck.
13:00 Elena Rybakina vs Elina Svitolina

Elina Svitolina

Win Match

50 WIN

@3.40

Lose

-50

Its looking like a past Grand Slam champion could break their hoo-doo here. Elena won Wimbledon a few years ago, and has done very little since. She has a great chance to move on here. But she faces the tornado called Elina. Elina was brilliant in her prior match and could see off Elena here.
13:00 Jelena Ostapenko vs Barbora Krejcikova

Jelena Ostapenko

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.50

Lose

-50

We have 2 former Grand Slam champions here - and both want a chance to prove themselves. Jelena spent years in the wilderness before finally breaking back into the top ten this year. Barbora is still in the wilderness, unable to find a way to replicate her winning ways. But one of them will win this match. Jelena seems like she wants to prove herself more, we'll see...
13:00 Lorenzo Musetti vs Taylor Fritz

Taylor Fritz

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.25

Lose

-50

Taylor has surprise us. He beat Alex in a hard match in the prior round. Like Tommy Paul, he's been on the fringe of the better players. Maybe this win will boost his confidence to move on here. He has a great chance to do so.
09 July 2024
15:30 Jasmine Paolini vs Emma Navarro

Jasmine Paolini

Win Match

50 WIN

@2.62

Win

81

Jasmine's flying high - higher than Iga - who beat her at the French. She faces Emma - who caused an upset win over Coco. Poor Coco, just a few days ago, she must have thought that this title was hers, after most of the top ten players had already lost. Now they are proclaiming that Emma is the next superstar! We all know what that means. Bye, bye Emma...
14:30 Carlos Alcaraz vs Tommy Paul

Tommy Paul

Win Match

50 WIN

@4.00

Lose

-50

Can Tommy really be a contender ? He's been hovering all year just outside the better players. Now he faces French Open winner Carlos. He has a chance based on the way he has recently being playing. Good luck.
13:00 Lulu Sun vs Donna Vekic

Donna Vekic

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.33

Win

17

Just when the British crowd had all but crowned Emma as the new Champion, she loses to a player that nobody has ever heard off. Now Lulu faces another player for a spot in the semis. Difference is, Donna is a regular player on the tour - while Emma only shows up when she feels like it. Donna should see Lulu off here.
08 July 2024
11:00 Arthur Fils vs Alex De Minaur

Alex De Minaur

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.20

Win

Alex needs to take some deep breaths as he moves on in this tournament. He faces a lower-ranked opponent and should win handily. Then he could face Novak - who has not won a tournament in over 8 months.
11:00 Danielle Collins vs Barbora Krejcikova

Danielle Collins

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.45

Lose

-50

Can Danielle continue to have a wonderful last year on the tour ? I hope so. She faces a one-off Grand Slam Champion, who has found it hard to replicate that form. Danielle, on the other hand, is having her best year ever. Good luck girl.
11:00 Elena Rybakina vs Anna Kalinskaya

Elena Rybakina

Not sure what to make about this match. We have former Wimbledon Champion Elena, but that means nothing these days. Its very sad that winning a grand slam is meaningless in women's tennis. In the past, it used to highlight that a person was a superior player on the tour. But look at poor Marketa, winner last year, first round loser this year. Appalling result. Elena will be hoping-against-hope, that she can do well and maybe break the one-off champion curse. We'll see...
11:00 Elina Svitolina vs Xinyu Wang

Elina Svitolina

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.53

Win

26

Elina must be eyeing the draw with some interest. She just saw off a 2-time Wimbledon finalist in the prior match and now faces a much lower ranked player. You would think she can get through this match...in the meantime, Ons can say goodbye to her top ten ranking and she tumbles out quick smart...
11:00 Holger Rune vs Novak Djokovic

Holger Rune

Win Match

50 WIN

@3.60

Lose

-50

A year ago, Rune was doing very well. He was ranked 4 and looked like a contender for big things. But his tennis has gone backwards and he's probably lacking in confidence. In the meantime, Novak has made a miracle recovery from sugery - and is motoring along here. He really should win this match. But Novak has lost unexpectedly to anyone under the sun this year, and Rune can pick up on this and win.
11:00 Taylor Fritz vs Alexander Zverev

Alexander Zverev

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.50

Lose

-50

Taylor won a grass court tournament last week, but when you look at who he beat, it wasn't a quality event. In the meantime, we have Alex who really-really wants to do well. Alex also has the ability to beat high-class players whereas Fritz is slightly lacking in this area. Should be a good match regardless.
11:00 Yulia Putintseva vs Jelena Ostapenko

Yulia Putintseva

Win Match

50 WIN

@2.00

Lose

-50

Yulia caused a huge upset by beating Iga - but she had displayed prior good form on grass, unlike most of the top ten players. She plays Jelena - who really should beat her. The last time they played on clay, it was a tight 3-set match. Let's see if Yulia can survive the letdown of beating Iga and win this match. Most of the time, they can't sustain their euphoria...
07 July 2024
17:00 Emma Navarro vs Coco Gauff

Coco Gauff

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.28

Lose

-50

Coco must be laughing. How many times have the top women failed in big events in recent years. As Iga whinges about how hard it is to play after winning the French, prior players like Evert, Navratilova, Graf and Seles - must be shaking their heads, as they did it over-and-over again, without any of the medical or technical benefits of today. Coco should see off Emma here.
16:30 Grigor Dimitrov vs Daniil Medvedev

Daniil Medvedev

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.73

Daniil has a real chance to do well. But he faces a re-invigorated Grigor. Hopefully he can win here - and start putting pressure on the other leading players.

Jannik is looking confident these days. Ben, on the other hand, doesn't really look in control of his matches. Jannik should send Ben on his way here.

As the women's event degenerates into a smoozle, there are a few players hoping to grab unexpected glory. Time is running out for Maddy to make her mark as a Grand Slam winner. Must be frustrating to see all these one-off champions while Maddy has been a steady performer for years. Will this be her year ? Probably not. Jasmine is flying high at the moment and will probably continue on her way here.

People are underestimating Daniil. He knows how to play on grass. He can really motor on in this tournament under the radar.

Diana has surprised some with some good tennis in recent weeks. And she has beaten Emma twice in recent months. She can (hopefully) continue her good form here and inflict another defeat on Emma.

-50

This is an interesting match. Emma - who has barely been seen in 2 years, wins a few matches and people are predicting her a Wimbledon winner. Completely bonkers. Then we have Maria - a top ten player - who can barely win a match in recent months. However, Maria can and has beaten good players this year - she just needs to put the English nonsense aside and play her normal tennis to win. We'll see...
11:00 Jasmine Paolini vs Bianca Andreescu

Jasmine Paolini

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.73

Win

37

This is a good test for Jasmine. She's made the top ten. She's on cloud nine after making the French Open. She faces Bianca (who will be lucky not to retire in another match). Poor Bianca, after winning the US Open, she has been lost in the wilderness for many years. Jasmine should win here.
11:00 Tommy Paul vs Alexander Bublik

Tommy Paul

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.67

Tommy is so close to the top ten. Just another good performance here, will see him make a breakthrough. He has been doing very well this year - and has the confidence to continue on here.

Karen Khachanov

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.50

Lose

-50

We've been saying it for a while, Karen can do some damage in these tournaments. But he seems to run into a better player - and stops in a hurry. Nevertheless, he should win this match.
14:30 Jule Niemeier vs Elina Svitolina

Elina Svitolina

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.45

Win

22

Elina is finding it hard to match her euphoric return to tennis last year. Nevetheless, she is a gritty player and can do some damage in this tournament. Upwards and onwards for her.
13:00 Katie Boulter vs Harriet Dart

Katie Boulter

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.25

Lose

-50

Everyone is raving about Emma winning a couple of matches! What a load of nonsense, there is zero chance that Emma is winning Wimbledon - and people should stop expecting her to do it (and dumping on her which she doesn't). In the meantime, we have Katie (who actually has a nice ranking) meeting another Brit here. Katie should win this and move on.
12:30 Lloyd Harris vs Ben Shelton

Lloyd Harris

Win Match

50 WIN

@2.20

Ben's been hovering without doing well in recent months. Lloyd has a chance to put another dent in Ben's recent game and move on to the next round.

Yulia Putintseva

Yulia did well last week on the grass. That's more than most players can say in recent weeks. If she holds her form, she can win this match.

Matteo Berrettini

@1.30

Lose

-50

You never know what you are going to get with Matteo. Was ranked in top ten a year ago, now in the 60s. But he can win tournaments and make finals, like last week. Can also cause upsets too. Can also be injured a lot. You never know. He should win this match, and with so many top players losing early, can do a lot better than expected.
11:00 Carlos Alcaraz vs Jack Draper

Carlos Alcaraz

Win Match

50 WIN

@1.33

Lose

-50

Carlos is on a high, his feet probably haven't come down to earth. Jack just won a tournament last week, and is probably feeling confident. But confidence doesn't seem to mean anything in tennis at the moment, win one week, lose the next. Carlos will probably win because he's so happy. And with Novak finding any excuse not to play tennis these days (retirements, MIA, etc), Carlos is looking at doing well at Wimbledon again.
10:00 Alejandro Tabilo vs Tommy Paul

Tommy Paul

Does Tommy want to be a contender ? Does he want to make the top ten ? Then he needs to win these matches and be competitive against the top ten. He can do it, he is having a good season overall.
