Richard Gasquet v Frances Tiafoe
Gasquet continues his climb back up the rankings and The Wolf is expecting him to shine on the grass over the next fortnight. He made the semi’s in Halle last week beating some handy names along the way and The Wolf thinks he can win this tournament. Tiafoe looked to be finding form with back to back Challenger titles on clay but he is 2-7 on the main tour and struggles in matches where he is unable to dominate his opponents. Gasquet has the ability to neutralise the Tiafoe serve and the court craft to take the American out of his comfort zone. This will be a routine win for the Frenchman.
Best Bet: Gasquet -4.5 ($2.05)
Cameron Norrie v Gael Monfils
The form of Gael Monfils has been patchy to say the least and The Wolf says we could very well see a huge upset. The Frenchman has lost 5 of his last 7 matches on tour and has never had great success on grass. Norrie is a lefty who loves to move forward and close in on the net. It’s that sort of pressure that Monfils has never dealt well with in the past and The Wolf is getting right behind Norrie with the start.
Best Bet: Norrie +4.5 ($2.05)
Janko Tipsarevic v Andreas Seppi
It has been a few years since Tipsarevic produced this sort of tennis. Following back to back titles on the Challenger Tour he has brought that form with him to the main tour. He beat Sugita in s-Hertogenbosch before taking a set of Cilic – a man who The Wolf rates as a genuine contender at Wimbledon. He then served for the match against Troicki in Queen’s and is coming off a dominant 1st round win here. He is 3-1 lifetime against Seppi and The Wolf is shocked to see this game rated a coin flip. Janko should be a clear favourite.
Best Bet: Tipsarevic WIN ($1.91)
David Ferrer v Yuichi Sugita
The decline of David Ferrer continues and The Wolf will be surprised if he goes around again next year. We have seen other men at 35 have success on the tour but that is on the back of a booming serve and some heavy ground strokes. Ferrer’s legs on the other hand have got the mileage of a 60 year old marathon runner. He has lost more than a step and his inability to generate free points on serve turns every game into a battle. Sugita will break serve at will and is a great bet!
Best Bet: Sugita WIN ($1.91)
