Karen Khachanov Preview – Can Russia’s Khachanov upset the odds?

This is the first time that Russia’s Karen Khachanov has been past the round of 16 at the Grand Slam.

That previous best was in 2018 when his run was stopped by Novak Djokovic.

Khachanov had a really tough battle on his hands in this year’s Round of 16.

He was up against American Sebastian Korda and was taken all the way to a deciding set.

Khachanov eventually got himself across the line by settling the final set 10-8.

This will be the second match that Khachanov has played against Shapovalov.

He lost the first meeting which was in a 2019 Davis Cup meeting, which went to a deciding set.

For Wimbledon tennis betting, Khachanov is the 11/5 underdog in the match outright*(odds taken 21:49 GMT on July 5th, 2021)

Our betting prediction:
Shapovalov 3-0 Set Betting

Bet at Betfair

*(odds taken 21:49 GMT on July 5th, 2021)


This season’s form from Khachanov was a 16/14 win/loss record heading into Wimbledon.

He tried his hand on the grass at Halle, Germany and at Mallorca, Spain before the Championships.

The Russian won one of three matches played across those two tournaments.

We see his defence struggling to hold Shapovalov at bay.

A Khachanov +1.5 Set Handicap option for tennis betting is at 23/20*(odds taken 21:49 GMT on July 5th, 2021).


Denis Shapovalov Preview – Young Canadian looks strong

We really haven’t seen 10th seed Denis Shapovalvov break a sweat at Wimbledon 2021.

Not since the first round anyway when he was taken to five sets by Phillipp Kolhschrieber.

But Shapovalov hasn’t looked back since then.

He was handed a rest in Round 2 with a walkover before easily overpowering Andy Murray in a Third Round showdown.

Then it was another straight-set victory for the young Canadian.

Shapovalov fired his way past 8th seed Roberto Bautista Agut without ever looking in trouble.

So he is looking really sharp on the grass at SW19 and is a quote of 13/8 for 3-0 set betting victory* (odds taken 21:49 GMT on July 5th, 2021).

Head of Wimbledon, Shapovalov was carrying an 18/13 win/loss record for the season.

There was a hint that a bit of Grand Slam form was coming from him after some decent warm-up efforts on the grass.

Denis Shapovalov had run to the semi-finals of Queen’s just before Wimbledon. He was beaten there by Britain’s Cameron Norrie.

In the match outright for Wimbledon tennis betting, Shapovalov is a quote of 4/11 odds-on*(odds taken 21:49 GMT on July 5th, 2021).

There really hadn’t been any prior Wimbledon form from Shapovalov.

This is just his fourth appearance in the main draw and he hadn’t been past the second round in the previous attempts.

But he looks to have found his form at the moment and is worth siding with.
