Reigning Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is back into the final four of a Grand Slam.

Novak Djokovic Preview – Djokovic to take a step closer to title defence?

It is Novak Djokovic and it is a Grand Slam semi-final. It’s hard to not expect him to get through.

In the Quarter Finals, Djokovic faced Marton Fucsovics who had upset 4th seed Alexander Zverev in the previous round.

That was a straight-sets win for Djokovic and it was in the last four rounds from him.

In the match outright for Wimbledon tennis betting, the win for Djokovic is at 1/10* (odds taken 0116 GMT on July 8th 2021).

That’s a crazy price to think about for a Grand Slam semi-final.

But that is Djokovic who has already captured both the Australian and French Open titles this year.

Djokovic rarely fails at this stage. He has been to the final in five of the last seven editions of Wimbledon.

He also dominates the head to head record against Denis Shapovalov to boot.

Our betting prediction:
Djokovic 3-0 set betting

The first meeting between the two happened at a Grand Slam. That was the 2019 Australian Open which Djokovic won in four sets.

Since then he has dropped just one set in the other five meetings with Shapovalov.

There was a match between them this year at the ATP Cup.

A Djokovic 3-0 Set Betting Option is at 4/6 odds-on for Wimbledon tennis betting* (odds taken 0116 GMT on July 8th 2021).

Will this just be another routine success for Djokovic who knows all about the pressure that’s going to be there on Centre Court.


Denis Shapovalov Preview – Can Canadian topple the champ?

Denis Shapovalov is the 10th seed at Wimbledon and it’s been a sparkling run from him.

He had a tough Quarter Final match on his hands. He found himself 2-1 down in that match against Karen Khachanov.

But that just seemed to ignite something in Shapovalov who powered his way to a successful fightback.

That’s two of his four matches (as he had a walkover in the second round) that Shapovalov has been taken to five sets.

Not surprisingly he is the underdog in the match outright for tennis odds.

The win for Shapovalov is at a quote of 6/1* (odds taken 0116 GMT on July 8th 2021).

Considering that Shapovalov had failed to make it past the Second Round in any of his three previous Wimbledon attempts, this has been impressive.

Denis Shapovalov has yet to claim an ATP Tour title in his career actually and this is only the second time in any Grand Slam that he’s been past the 4th Round.

Shapovalov is one of the top young players around on the Tour.

But surely this is going to be a step too far for him in this current Wimbledon campaign.

It’s going to be extremely difficult for Shapovalov to find the cracks in Djokovic’s game to exploit.

A Shapovalov +6.5 Games Handicap is at a quote of Evens in tennis betting* (odds taken 0116 GMT on July 8th 2021).
