Wimbledon 2017 – Quarter Finals Preview and Best Bets

Tue, Jul 11, 10:44am by Head Editor

We’re entering the business end at the Old England Club, with all four quarter-finals in the women’s draw set to take place on Tuesday night Australian time, while on the men’s side we have one fourth round match to play.

The biggest casualty on the men’s side in round four was Rafael Nadal’s gut-wrenching loss to Gilles Muller. That match ended 15-13 in the fifth set, and means that Novak Djokovic’s match with Adrian Mannarino has been delayed until Tuesday night Australian time.

The Serbian is the only man left who can dethrone Andy Murray from world number one. He’s considered a $1.02 chance to get past the unseeded Mannarino ($10) in the final fourth round match.

Roger Federer remains on track for a record eighth crown, after dispatching of Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets. He’s a $1.24 chance to move past Milos Raonic ($4.10) and secure a spot in the final four.

The biggest dark horse remaining in the men’s competition is Marin Cilic, who looked very impressive against 18th seed Roberto Bautista-Agut, winning in straight sets.

He’s at $1.18 to get past Nadal’s conqueror, Giless Muller ($4.90).

Murray seems to be getting better with each match, he qualified for his 10th straight quarter-final with a straight sets win over France’s Benoit Paire, and is now preparing for a match against American Sam Querrey ($5.50). The two-time champion is at $1.15 to get through to another semi-final.

The women’s number one seed couldn’t emulate Murray’s efforts though. Angelique Kerber was knocked out by Garbine Muguruza, which means she’ll lose her number one ranking.

Muguruza, who was runner-up at this event in 2015, came from a break down in the final set, and now meets Svetlana Kuznetsova ($2.30) in the quarter-finals.

The Spaniard is now equal favourite with local hope Johanna Konta at $5 to win her first Grand Slam, and is $1.62 to get through to the semi finals.

Konta is assessed as a $1.86 chance when she comes up against Romania’s Simona Halep ($1.95), who beat Victoria Azarenka in straight sets.

Venus Williams cruised into the final eight with a straight sets win over Croatian teenager Ana Konjuh. The five-time champion should be fresh, considering she was on court for just 64 minutes.

She’s at $1.75 to progress past Jelena Ostapenko ($2.08), who also won in straight sets, but needed eight match points to get past fourth-seed Elena Svitolina.

The last unseeded woman left in the draw is Slovak Magdalena Rybarikova, who ended the run of Croatian qualifier Petra Martic with a 6-4 2-6 6-3 victory.

She is at $2.54 to get past the Coco Vandeweghe ($1.52), who is coached by Pat Cash. The American took out Danish fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets.

Suggested Bet: Take Konta and Halep’s match to go over 21.5 games into Federer to win: $2.13
