IT was the men’s turn today as we reach the last-eight stage at Wimbledon.
Three of the women’s quarter-finals went to form yesterday and it was a pity the one that didn’t involved Dominika Cibulkova who beat my new challenge at the first attempt.
Wednesday’s ties see Andy Murray tackle Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Roger Federer face Marin Cilic, Sam Querrey against Milos Raonic and finally shocktroop Lucas Pouille takes on Tomas Berdych.
Murray’s the shortest-priced by a mile at no bigger than 1-8. I expect him to win 3-0 or 3-1 so Murray -1.5 sets could be worth a look at 1-3 with sportingbet. It’s difficult to find value in this one but if Tsonga serves at his best there could be a tiebreak and that pays 1-2 at Coral.
Federer is just 1-3 at Stan James and has had an easy passage to the last eight. He could be tested by Marin Cilic who has looked back to his best. Cilic is 11-4 at McBookie and 4-9 at Ladbrokes to win a set which he should manage.
Querrey v Raonic is a battle of the big hitters and it’s no surprise to see a tiebreak paying just 1-8 at Skybet. Querrey knocked out Novak Djokovic to deserves respect but I’m on Raonic at a best 7-20 with sportingbet and like over 42.5 games at 4-5 with betfair.
Berdych completed a five-set win over Jiri Vesely on Tuesday and is no bigger than 1-4 at William Hill to see off surprise guy Pouille.
Big mac, Johnb and others have been prolific with their Wimbledon tips so let’s see everyone’s thoughts here.
