Johanna Konta will be hoping for an easier match up in the third round than the one she got against Donna Vekic in the second round. Konta had to dig deep to pull off that win over Vekic, 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 10-8 on Centre Court. That was as good as tennis matches get really and it had everything in the high-quality dual. But the extra exertion that Konta had to go through to get past Vekic, who had beaten Konta recently in the final of Nottingham, needs to be redressed with a quick win here.

This will be Konta’s first match against Greek player Sakkari. So this is unknown territory for both as this is the first time that they will have faced each other and it is the first time that Konta has been past the second round of Wimbledon. Konta has a 29/9 match record for the year, while Sakkari is at 14/16. So what will that epic win over Vekic have done for Konta? It has to have done here self belief the power of good you would imagine. While there is a worry about tiredness, you are table about a role model of professionalism, so she should handle this fine.

Konta is a price of 4/11 at bet365 to in the match 2-0 in set betting and that is just what she needs. Sakkari pulled off a win over Kristyna Pliskova in the second round, but that was a three-set match for the Greek player as well. So she had an extended match last time after having fallen a set down. But the youngster, being ranked 101st in the world, shouldn’t pose too big of a threat to Konta who should sweep this without losing a set. A nice Konta -5.5 game handicap looks value at 4/6.
