Alex Bolt Preview – Tough fixture for Bolt

This doesn’t look to be a particularly easy draw for Australia’s Alex Bolt in the Second Round of Wimbledon 2021.

The Australian opened with a straight-set victory in the first round over Filip Krajinovic.

Bolt wasn’t under a lot of pressure in that one and he cruised through.

That did actually carry on some good grass-court form that he has been in.

He recently took the title at Nottingham 2 on the Challenger Series as a warm-up. That was after having gone through two qualification rounds.

Granted this is at a much different level for him.

Before that Challenger run in Nottingham, Bolt had been on an eight-match losing streak in all competitions.

In the Wimbledon tennis betting market for this game, Bolt is a quote of 2/1, so a big underdog* (odds taken 2012 GMT on June 30th).

This is just the second time that Bolt has appeared in the main draw of Wimbledon.

Our betting prediction:
Norrie 3-0 set betting

Bet at Betway

(odds taken 2012 GMT on June 30th)


His previous Wimbledon Grand Slam campaign ended in the first round in 2018.

That was against a British player as Kyle Edmund sent the Australian packing in straight sets.

We do think that this plays out the same way and for Wimbledon tennis betting, a Norrie 3-0 set betting option is at 7/4* (odds taken 2012 GMT on June 30th).

Bolt has met Norrie before, winning a grass match in the UK during a Challenger Qualifying match in 2015.


Cameron Norrie Preview – Norrie can march into the the third round

Cameron Norrie opened in the first round with a victory over France’s Lucas Pouille.

Norrie had let the first set slip in that one on a tight tie break, but he bounced straight back to sweep the next three sets.

That continued the good form by Norrie who held a fantastic 29-13 win/loss record for the season ahead of Wimbledon.

There have been three ATP Finals that Norrie has played in this year. He hasn’t won a title, but his form can’t be argued with.

Ahead of Wimbledon, Norrie reached the Final of Queen’s only losing that Final against Matteo Berrettini in three sets.

In the match outright for Wimbledon tennis betting, Norrie is the very strong 2/5 odds-on favourite (odds taken 2012 GMT on June 30th).

Norrie has beaten stronger opponents than Bolt this season, including the likes of Dominic Thiem, Denis Shapovalov and Karen Khachanov.

We can’t foresee Norrie having any slip-ups in this second-round match at Wimbledon on Thursday.

There’s no perceivable weakness in his game at the moment and there was no panic after losing that first set in the first round against Pouille.

Norrie has matched his previous best at the Grand Slam by reaching the second round.

He can go further and we would look for a convincing finish here, so a Norrie -4.5 Games Handicap is at a quote of 4/5* (odds taken 2012 GMT on June 30th).


Alex Bolt vs Cameron Norrie Betting Advice

This is likely going to be a straightforward match for Cameron Norrie who can be happy with the draw.

A Norrie 3-0 in set betting has to be the way to roll in this one at 7/4, as he could easily have pulled that off in the first round* (odds taken 2012 GMT on June 30th).

Thursday’s opponent Bolt is not as strong as Pouille is, so this is there for the taking for Norrie.
