Sky Bet Crowd Boost Wimbledon Acca for Monday, July 10th 2017

Monday is going to be a packed day of action from SW19 as the big guns in the men's draw are all going to be out looking for a place in the quarter finals. All four of Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are all in action on Monday it what should be a thrilling day of tennis. All four of them have looked pretty comfortable on their way to the third round as well and the big matches are edging closer and closer. Looking at the draw for Monday there really shouldn't be any scare for any of them. Nadal will be taking on 16th seed Gilles Muller, at the same time as reigning champion Andy Murray will be facing off against the unseeded Benoit Paire. Later in the day, Novak Djokovic will be stepping onto the court against Adrian Mannarino and at the same time, outright favourite Roger Federer will be facing 13th seed, Grigor Dimitrov. So while Nadal and Federer have the toughest games, it would be a shock if all four of them wasn’t in the quarter final line up. Sky Bet are running a Crowd Boosted Accumulator on Murray, Federer and Nadal each to win 3-0 in the fourth round on Monday.

Paddy Power offer Wimbledon 2017 Tennis Crowd Powered Price

Paddy Power
Even though it hasn’t been the greatest of seasons for either Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray, they are still half of the big elite four at Wimbledon this season. Both will be looking to up their games on the grass at the Grand Slam and Murray is the reigning champion, while Djokovic has also won the tournament before as well. Then you throw Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer into the midx and you would expect a winner to come from one of those. Federer is the outright favourite to take the title, but Nadal will be a threat after carrying in some good form through the clay swing of the season. If Djokovic and Murray get their focus on then the streak of no player outside of the big four having won Wimbledon since 2003 is likely going to continue. If you are backing the big four all to come good at SW19 this season then you can take advantage of a huge Crowd Powered Price available at Paddy Power!

Wimbledon Betting 2017 Men’s Winner Odds & Predictions

Tennis Betting
The summer treat that is Wimbledon all beings on July 3rd and it will bring two weeks of high quality tennis action to the table. Andy Murray will be back to defend his title but it is Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal who have shared the two previous Grand Slam titles this year, and with Novak Djokovic going through his tough phase when he is struggling or form, perhaps this year’s Wimbledon is going to be even more wide open than before. The tournament this year turns through to July 16th and heading into the tournament at the All England Club, it is veteran Federer who is running at 9/4 favourite with bet365 to claim the title. After his Australian Open title this year, the Swiss superstar proved that he can still roll back the years and the beat the best. Federer will be eyeing up his eighth Wimbledon title as he heads to London this year. Wimbledon Men 2017 Infographic But Andy Murray, who has won two of the last four editions of the tournament will himself be looking to rediscover his best form. His grass court preparations haven’t gone all that well, to be honest but when the Grand Slams roll around, Murray can usually be counted on. He went much better and much deeper into the French Open this year than many thought he would do and as he is one of the more natural grass court players in the draw, he will pose a major threat if he can pull everything together. It will be interesting to see how former world number one Novak Djokovic goes in this one because he has been struggling so badly by his standards this year and hasn’t won a tournament since January. That suggests that he’s not quite there are the moment but punters may see a bit of value on him coming good in an open field. Then there is Rafael Nadal who is a former champion at Wimbledon like the other big three and will be on a high after winning the French Open for a record 10th time.

Wimbledon 2017 Preview

So who will be crowned champion? You have the interesting scenario where, since 2003, no one outside of the big four (Federer, Djokovic, Murray and Nadal) have won the men's singles, so that’s a pretty good place to start for your Wimbledon 2017 tennis betting. But we will take a look at those outside of the big four. The grass courts, of course, play a lot quicker than a lot of players can handle, that is because the bounce is generally flatter, so the ball carries more pace onto the racquet. That is in complete contrast to the higher bounces on the slower clay courts, so this is a tough transition between clay swing of the season onto the grass. The seedings for this year’s Wimbledon, in order, are 1. Andy Murray 2. Novak Djokovic 3. Roger Federer 4. Rafael Nadal 5. Stan Wawrinka 6. Milos Raonic 7. Marin Čilić 8. Dominic Thiem 9. Kei Nishikori 10. Alexander Zverev

Andy Murray

Murray got his second Wimbledon title here last year as he beat out Canada’s Milos Raonic in straight sets in the final. While it was another major coup for Murray, it didn’t get as much hype and attention as his first title at the tournament back in 2013. The British number one has had a difficult season because he has been battling through illness and injury for most of it, but he raised his game very well at the French Open, reaching the semifinals after having no form going into the tournament at all. Murray has made it to the final four in seven of his last eight Wimbledon campaigns, so he should get close to landing what would be his fourth Grand Slam title. He may have to dig in through the second week, especially having played just one game on grass, losing in the first round at Queen’s to an unranked Jordan Thompson. There’s just a little doubt about him lasting the distance this year as he is going in with a 21-9 record this season.

Novak Djokovic

What a strange season it has been from Djokovic. He opened early in the season with a win in Qatar but he hasn't claimed a title since them. After a straight sets exit at the hands of Dominic Thiem at the French Open, his commitment to the game was called upon by John McEnroe who accused Djokovic of just giving up. But the Serbian took a late wildcard at Eastbourne to play his first grass-court pre-Wimbledon tournament for ten years. That shows some desire to get back to his best. He doesn’t look to be quite mentally there though, not as tough as he should be right now and you can imagine that as soon as he starts feeling under pressure at some point, the walls may come tumbling down. No reason why he can’t get a quarter final berth, but yes, he’s vulnerable at the moment. The only thing that appeals to punters will be seeing a nice 6/1 price at bet365 on him to come good.

Roger Federer

The Fed Express rolled back the years with a win at the Australian Open earlier this year and he has been managing his time on the court very well, selecting his tournaments wisely. On top of that Australian Open success he has also won the Indian Wells titles by beating Stan Wawrinka, the Miami Open by beating Rafael Nadal and in his grass warm up ahead of Wimbledon, he took the title in Halle, beating Alexander Zverev in the final. That’s vastly different opponents in terms of style that he has beaten at the business end of tournaments this season. He clearly still has it in him and that is why Federer is many people’s favourite at bet365 to go and land his eighth Wimbledon title this year. He is the form man of the big four.

Rafael Nadal

Like Federer, Nadal has enjoyed a very good season, but the difference is, that Nadal’s done most of his good work on clay. It is telling that of his fifteen Grand Slam career titles, ten of them have been at the French Open. Nadal’s track record since reaching the 2011 final where he lost out to Djokovic, is pretty poor with him not having been past the fourth round since then. In three of his last four appearances at the All England Club, Nadal has gone out before the third round. So his golden days of reaching five Wimbledon finals in five consecutive appearances is long behind him and while he is carrying form and looking back to his very best, how will he adapt to the grass, where he is more vulnerable than anywhere else?

Opposing the big four

It is hard to oppose the big four in Wimbledon 2017 betting, but it is certainly worth a look. With Djokovic and Murray having difficult seasons, Nadal not at his best on grass and without form at Wimbledon then the field could be a lot more open than usual. So who would be the most likely to come through and steal the show? Well, Canada’s Milos Raonic reached last season's final and is decent on the grass to compete in this one, but you worry about his mental approach in the latter stages of tournaments. Marin Cilic had a good warm up on grass and you have the likes of Stan Wawrinka and Dominic Thiem there as well. Rising star of the game Thiem may have appeal out at 28/1 with bet365 even though grass isn’t his favourite surface, while young German Alexander Zverev is hovering anywhere between 16/1 and 22/1 with the bookmaker unsure of what he could potentially deliver. He warmed up by reaching the final of Halle on grass though which increases his value. Then there is the volatile Nick Kyrgios who has beaten Djokovic twice this season but has as much ability to win as he does to self-capitulate. But breaking that down, Wawrinka has no form at Wimbledon whatsoever in his career, while Cilic has never been past the quarter-finals, but has reached the final eight in each of his last three Wimbledon campaigns, so could be there or thereabouts again. Theim and Zverev are starting to find their feet in Slams and those younger, braver players are perhaps worth having an each way flutter on as opposed to the likes of Wawrinka and Cilic who won't be going there with particularly high expectations.

Wimbledon 2017 Predictions

Of the big four, it is hard to look past Federer in this one. He has had an incredible season and of them all, he can hang out on grass better than the rest of them. So as a favourite he is worth a flutter in the field, but there is a temptation on backing Djokovic at such a big price because that doesn't happen too often. There is though, because the top four collectively look weaker than they have done for a long time in a Grand Slam, temptation to look beyond the top four. Thiem has to be worth a flutter. He has beaten Djokovic, Murray and Nadal this season and as long as he finds his feet on grass quick enough (he did win a title on grass last season), at 28/1 with bet365, that’s an each way value. The same can be said of Zverev who seemed comfortable enough on the grass at Halle recently.

The renewed action at SW19 will be shortly here as the top tennis players in the world descend on Wimbledon for The Championships. Home hopes will once again be resting on the shoulders of Andy Murray who makes a return as the defending champion. But his season has been disrupted by injury and illness while Novak Djokovic has fallen out of form. With Rafael Nadal not having any recent form at Wimbledon, it is Roger Federer who is the favourite to sweep the title for what would be the eighth time in his career. But the big four will be under threat from dangerous youngsters in the field like Alexander Zverev and the rising star that is Dominic Thiem, who has already beaten Murray, Djokovic and Nadal this season.

Djokovic stars as Eastbourne favourite in Aegon International Tennis Betting

Tennis Betting
Former world number one Novak Djokovic is putting in a surprise appearance at Eastbourne this week as part of his Wimbledon preparations. It hasn’t been a great season for him, certainly not by his high standards and he hasn’t won a title since the Qatar Open in January. So he is struggling and is looking for a spark as he plays a grass-tournament ahead of Wimbledon for the first time in ten years. It has been a big fall for Djokovic who is now outside of the top two in the world. We last saw him out at the French Open when he was beaten at Roland Garros in straight sets by Dominic Thiem. It’s remarkable that just last year he held all four of the Major titles, but now he has none, with him having gone W24 L7 this year. He is a three-time Wimbledon champion and will be looking to get something back for the grass court major coming up and whatever happens to him at Eastbourne isn't going to tell us much. The sea of talent on the coast isn’t great and despite all of his problems this year, Djokovic is the odds-on favourite at bet365 for the tournament which says it all really. Let’s just say the competition isn’t stiff at all for the Serbians at this event, so this will just be a test of his mental focus more than anything and even if he crashes out early, it changes nothing for him at the moment, so he really has nothing to lose. He took a late wildcard for this, just to get some grass experience. Djokovic hasn’t won a grass court tournament in his career outside of Wimbledon. Djokovic opens against Vasek Pospisil in the second round and the highest ranked player that he could meet in the semi finals is fifth seed Sam Querrey. The other main players in the draw are all then squashed in the bottom half of the draw, namely Gael Monfils, Richard Gasquet, Mischa Zverev and John Isner.

Aegon International Tennis betting odds

Novak Djokovic 4/5, Gael Monfils 9/1, John Isner 11/1, Richard Gasquet 11/1, Kevin Anderson 14/1, Steve Johnson 14/1, Mischa Zverev 18/1, Sam Querrey 16/1, Bernard Tomic 16/1, bar 22/1. Prediction: Djokovic is probably going to get close to winning this one, but there’s nothing there in the market price to warrant backing him really. Frenchman Richard Gasquet had a good tournament on the grass out in Halle, Germany before losing in a tight semi final duel with Alexander Zverev. He’s solid enough on the grass to take a punt on in the bet365 To Reach Final market or go all in on an each way.

The action at Roland Garros is underway as the best in the world try and get their hands on the French Open title. In the men's draw, it is Novak Djokovic who is looking to defend his title there after having won it for the first time last year. Both Djokovic though and world number one Andy Murray have been having their struggles with form this season though which makes the draw very interesting for 2017. Rafael Nadal has been red hot on the clay this season and with his phenomenal track record going at Roland Garros, he is the outright favourite at Paddy Power to get his hands back on the title for what would be the tenth time in his stunning career. You have the wild unpredictable 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka going with a favourable draw and young Dominic Thiem who is the hot ticket at the moment.

Tennis Betting
The action is on at Roland Garros for 2017 as Novak Djokovic sets out to defend his title. After a year of struggles by his very own standards, in which he has claimed just the one title this year (his season opener at the Qatar Open) the pressure is on Djokovic in Paris. He has made a change of coach and will be looking for much better fortunes. It is Rafael Nadal though who has been carrying the strong form through the clay swing of the ATP season and with his phenomenal record at Roland Garros, he will be looking to get his hands back on the title after a two-year gap. They are the frontrunners in the French Open Betting 2017 with Andy Murray, the current world number one, out of form (much like Djokovic is) and with no great track record at the French Open. It is a wide open and competitive field at the French Open this year.

French Open 2017 Draw

It is all important to go and look at the Men's draw for the French Open Betting 2017 because you need to kind of plot a route through to the business of the competition for them. Andy Murray is the top seed for the draw and that puts him right at the top of the draw, but there is a tricky quarter there for him with Juan Martin del Potro a potential third round opponent, while Tomas Berdych could be knocking around as a fourth round opponent. Then there is young Alexander Zverev, who could be in the quarter there to oppose him, or perhaps Kei Nishikori. Not the most comfortable of draws for the Brit and may be worth opposing with the likes of young Alexander Zverev who has performed well on clay recently. Player to win 1st quarter odds Andy Murray 2/1, Alexander Zverev 3/1, Kei Nishikori 5/1, Juan Martin Del Potro 8/1, Tomas Berdych 11/1, Pablo Cuevas 16/1, bar 28/1 The second quarter is headed up by Stan Wawrinka, the 2015 French Open champion. He looks to have received a pretty easy quarter with French opposition in Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga coming down the line. Clay expert David Ferrer is in there as well but isn’t running particularly hot right now, which leaves seventh seed Marin Cilic as the strongest opposition to Wawrinka in that quarter. There’s a really good opportunity for one of those to come through the pack and land something special. Player to win 2nd quarter odds Stan Wawrinka 6/4, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 15/2, Nick Kyrgios 6/1, Gael Monfils 15/2, Fabio Fognini 11/1, Marin Cilic 14/1, Richard Gasquet 14/1, David Ferrer 18/1, bar 33/1 The third quarter is being headed up by Rafael Nadal and it would be a surprise if he didn’t get all the way through it, to be honest. There’s not much genuine opposition in there aside from fifth seed Milos Raonic, who’s not likely to be too much opposition in the latter stages if he meets Nadal in the quarter-finals. This should be a fairly routine run through to the last eight for the Spaniard who has been in cracking clay form this year and is the one to beat. Player to win 3rd quarter odds Rafael Nadal 1/5, Milos Raonic 11/1, Grigor Dimitrov 14/1, bar 25/1 This is Novak Djokovic’s quarter of the draw as he goes off as the second seed. Of course what this means in that we could be in store for an epic Djokovic v Nadal showdown at the semi-final stage. Djokovic hasn’t been at his best this season at all and could face a tricky early opponent in Mischa Zverev in round 3. There isn’t too much to trouble Djokovic in his quarter, fortunately, which should give him time to find his feet. But Dominic Thiem, who is running red-hot at the moment is the biggest opposition who Djokovic could face in the quarter-finals. Player to win 4th quarter Novak Djokovic 4/6, Dominic Thiem 5/2, David Goffin 9/1, Lucas Pouille 18/1, bar 25/1

Main Contenders in French Open 2017 Tennis Betting

Rafael Nadal 5/6 The Spaniard has swept his way to three titles this season and all of them on clay. He has come very good over the summer and will a firm favourite to go and dominate Roland Garros once again. This season his wins at Monte Carlo, Madrid and in Barcelona, places at which he has won many, many times before shows that he can go and perform. Of course, the road to the French Open is going to be a little tougher as he goes in search of his tenth title at the event. He has had his setbacks there recently because of injury but looks prime to make another very strong run at the title this year. His big game is going to be the potential semi-final against Djokovic. Novak Djokovic 4/1 Big odds on the Serbian here who won the title for the first time last season. He beat out Andy Murray last term in the showcase match, but he may have to go through both Nadal and Murray to get there this time. Djokovic has a 20-6 win/loss record for the season going into Roland Garros and is 8-3 on clay. He did lose to Nadal in the Madrid Open semi-finals recently and went better when he went to the final in Rome in the following event. He lost there to Alexander Zverev which raises the stock of the young German and casts more doubts on Djokovic. Will the change of coach to Andre Agassi be enough to raise a title defence? It's a big gamble on Djokovic at Bet365 this time around Andy Murray 11/1 The world number one has been going through some struggles this season and has just the one title to his name this term when he beat Fernando Verdasco in the Dubai Final. Murray found himself in the final of the French Open for the first time last season and after taking the first set against Djokovic, couldn’t hold on. His lack of success at the French Open (in contrast, Djokovic had been to three of the four previous finals before he won it last year) in getting to the final doesn’t offer a lot of value for him to not only get there but get his hands on the title. He isn’t running in form as it is and if he were to get to the final, he would likely meet either Nadal or Djokovic there. Stan Wawrinka 10/1 He can’t totally be counted out. Although his consistency is a huge problem for him, he either looks very average or brilliant on his day, he made an impact here two years ago and is one of the better clay players around. He grabbed a little form in a warm-up tournament, taking the Geneva Open final over Mischa Zverev which will give him a confidence boost ahead of Paris. He actually doesn't have a bad draw ahead of him and should easily be in the quarter-finals and from there, you just never know with him. Probably better dark horse value than Murray is anyway. Dominic Thiem 11/1 The Young Austrian is playing some very good stuff now and has been to the final in two of his last three tournaments (and hit the semi-final in the other). He beat Andy Murray on his way to the Barcelona Open final where he was brushed aside by Rafael Nadal and then he was denied against by Rafael when they met in the Madrid Open. That didn’t really slow down Thiem though as in his next tournament he got the better of Nadal in a quarter-final match up in Rome, before losing in the semi-finals against Djokovic. This is the guy who ran all the way to the semifinals of the French Open last year where he was taken out by eventual winner Novak Djokovic. He is highly competitive right now but as both Djokovic and Nadal potentially stand in his way the best odds on him are to upset Djokovic by winning the fourth quarter at a 5/2 with Bet365. French Open 2017 Predictions With the drop in form of both Murray and Djokovic this season, this market the field a lot more interesting. Rafael Nadal has to be worth a punt at Bet365 because of the form that he has been carrying this season and while Dominic Thiem’s stock is super high right now, it may be a bridge too far for him to come through what could be a tough draw at the business end of the tournament. It pretty much leaves Stan Wawrinka as not a bad dark horse punt to get close to landing the title because as long as he has his A-game with him, he can take the top half of the draw.

Paddy Power offer 4/1 on Nadal, Djokovic OR Murray to win the French open

Paddy Power
The next big tournament on the tennis calendar is of course the French Open and it is a little more interesting this time around because the top two in the world, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic have been having their having their struggles with form. Since the clay swing of the season hit, Rafael Nadal has been on fire and those three being the strongest contenders at the head of the field for the French Open 2017. Nadal and Djokovic have the advantage over Murray of actually having won at Roland Garros before, but when the Grand Slams roll around, Murray, even if he has been out of form, usually shows up and performs. This is when the top players really amp up their games. With no Roger Federer around for the action in Paris, will it be either Nadal, Djokovic or Murray who get their hands on the title?

In-form Nadal to conquer Tennis ATP Rome field?

Tennis Betting
Andy Murray is back defending his Rome title from last year. He took down Novak Djokovic in the final, pretty easily as well at the end of the day on the clay. It was Murray’s first ever title at the event and it snapped back to back successes in the Italian capital for Djokovic himself. Now the big guns (minus Roger Federer) are back to compete this week as the season gains momentum towards the French Open 2017. Rafael Nadal is the man of the moment as he is on a big hot streak of form on the dirt. He landed his first title of the season at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters back in April and hasn't looked back since, claiming the Barcelona Open and then Mutua Madrid Open as well. He has lost just one of his last sixteen matches now (against Roger Federer in the final of the Miami Open) and with Murray and Djokovic both struggling for a bit of form at the moment, the Spaniard is even money favourite at Bet365 to win in Rome this week. Nadal has won the Rome title seven times before and with him hitting his stride on clay, the master is really back in business at the moment and it’s hard to see either of the other main challengers topping him. Djokovic hasn’t been close to a title since winning the Qatar Open over Andy Murray back in January. Andy Murray himself hasn’t produced anything since his title in Dubai in February and that should leave the Italian path clean for Nadal and he is the one that everyone will want to avoid in the draw. But it is Djokovic who gets him in his half of the draw, which means that there could be a repeat of the Mutua Madrid Open semi-final clash between them, which Nadal won. So Andy Murray is on his own in the top half of the draw and really there should be little to stop him winning his quarter of the draw, even if he phones it in a little bit here and there. It should be plain sailing. He could meet Milos Raonic in the quarter and then there is the potential of either Stan Wawrinka or Marin Cilic in the semi finals. So while the draw is relatively open for Murray, it’s still hard to back him at the moment and certainly even if he gets to the final and meets either Djokovic or Nadal, there is a tough game ahead for him. So it will probably be better to stick with one of the front runners, either Nadal or Djokovic who is 5/1 at bet365 to win the title. At the moment, even though he is playing a lot more games than the other two because of successes, it has to be Nadal all of the way right now. It’s always appealing to go against the favourite, but in this case, it’s hard to. It's going to take something special to snap Nadal's momentum at the moment.
