Bautista Agut (-5.5) v Pella @ 1.65 with SportingBet

Bautista-Agut has somewhat slipped under the radar at this tournament. He has not dropped a set this tournament and has breezed through to the quarter-finals. His opponent, Guido Pella, came back from 2-0 against Raonic and might be feeling the effects of a 5-setter. In addition, Bautista-Agut has a 2-0 against Pella, and in many of the sets he won against Pella, he won 6-1 or 6-0.

My Predictions for the QF:

Federer vs Nishikori under 40.5 Games @ 1.4 with bet365

If both players play as they did so far, i dont think that nikishori even gets one set and in case he does and wins with a break, i think Roger will win one set at least with two breaks which comes in favor of the under games. Although Nishikori played a pretty good tournament, he showed against Kukushkin that he is vulnerable when the opponent gets persistent with the shots, which roger should execute mercilessly as we saw against berrettini and pouille.

 

Nadal vs Querrey Win Nadal and over 32.5 Games @ 2 with bet365

Due to Querrey being a good server i think that Nadal wont smash like 6-2 6-3 6-2 or somethink like that. It will be longer sets with a possible tie break which could lead Querrey to win a set but in total i dont think that Querrey will be able to break Nadal often and Nadal as a good Returner should get the possibility of a break more often. 

 

Djokovic vs Goffin Djokovic to win in straight Sets @ 1,5 with bet365

Since the last game i think that djokovic is fully in his game and reached his peak with good recovery time while goffin had more struggle in his journey even if his perfomance wasnt inconsistent or whatsoever. We saw that his Capability against big opponents like Federer lacks though losing the second set 6-1 in Halle few Weeks ago. I dont think that the result will be much more different with Novak

 

Agut vs Pella , Agut Win @ 1.2 with bet365

Agut is one of the players i trust the most in this GS. He never lost a set even against tougher opponents and has a solid baseline game which will be the key for me in this game to force pella to do mistakes. Considering the exhaustion of Pella who had 10 full power sets in the last two games I think the more experienced Agut will have at least a 3-1 win against Pella.

Close but no cigar.

When Querrey broke back to make it 5-5, I thought the TB was in the bag.  Nadal just too good.

He's playing really well at the moment, better than Federer from what I've seen, but I'd still make Fed slight fav on grass. Market has Nadal fav tho, so maybe a little value there if you fancy Fed. But since I'm on Rafa outright I won't be having a bet on the win market.  I'm looking for another TB bet instead, these 2 have a history of TBs, and I'm convinced we'll see a least 1 in this match. Lets see what the layers are offering.

I didn't get to see Federer-Nishikori yesterday, but I think that we might see some sort of a repeat of the French Open clash, the courts really are slow and Federer isn't going to win unless he wins the first set imo. He's going to get more free points on serve than Querrey thanks to his better placement, but Nadal is still capable of breaking him twice per set I'd say. 3-1 Nadal is my call, although I wouldn't mind seeing Fed winning for sentimental reasons.

What do you guys think about Serena vs Halep in the final?  On grass Serena has a fast serve, Halep is really short.  Any way serena falls?  I don't think so...

I'd think again - she may well win but it's worth bearing in mind that Halep is similar to Kerber - who beat Serena in last year's final as an underdog (and in straight sets) - in that she's a great defender. As I mentioned when I punted on Goerges to beat Serena earlier in the tournament, she can be beaten if she's moved around the court and Halep certainly has the game to do that. I expect her to also utilise the drop shot as another way to keep Serena from getting into the kind of rhythm that she likes. If Halep can keep the ball in-play, move Serena from one side of the court to the other and also successfully employ the drop shot I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a straight sets win for the Romanian.

I managed to get Serena Halep final at 10/1 before Ash Barty got knocked out 

Hi Czech punter. I want your thoughts on how many sets in the Nadal Federer match as i have got a feeling it will go to five sets

5 out of their last 22 matches have gone the distance (5 sets).

Rafael Nadal to beat Roger Federer @ 1.68

From reports that I have read, the courts are playing slower than usual, which has and will benefit Nadal. Besides Kyrgios, Nadal has more-or-less demolished his opponents, including the big server Sam Querrey, who is not bad on grass. On the other hand, Federer has had a few lapses, losing a set each to Harris and Nishikori. A better player than Nishikori (i.e. Nadal) could have won that QF I reckon. Based on the form in this tournament, I reckon Nadal is in a better shape than Federer.

On paper (grass or any surface), Halep should be beating Williams, she has the game to do it. The problem is, its the Wimbledon final, somewhere she hasn't been before, and she has a history of choking. And thats why Williams is still favourite. But honestly, it looks a coin flip to me. Hopefully we get a decent final. So many of the ladies finals seem to be straight sets disappointments.

I'm not brave enough to back the straight sets win, but I am going to back Halep at 2.74 on the exchanges. That's too big in my book.

Well, Williams has a history of choking as well, she choked against both Osaka and Kerber with a lot on the line last year. And she's still really salty about the Osaka loss from what I've read.

I have the signal on Halep's win but will not bet, but definitely chances are strong.

Should have been braver and backed the straight sets but I never imagined Serena could be so dismal. As well as Halep played, Serena was terrible - even worse than last year. UE after UE after UE. If that was me I'd be a bit embarrassed, and I'd also be a bit embarrassed if I was one of Serena's previous opponents in this tournament. She is so obviously lacking in fitness and limited in movement that it makes a bit of mockery of the sport that she can just show up for the big tournaments and make the final like she's done in 3 out of the last 5 Slams.
