Wimbledon continues as we bring to end the first week of the tournament this weekend.
The BetDeluxe team has gone through each game selected the best bets from the best matches.
Felix Auger-Aliassime vs. Nick Kyrgios
3rd July 11:00pm
26-year-old Nick Kyrgios’s form coming into Wimbledon would have been complete guesswork after the Aussie had played just six matches in 2021 but he is close to his best after two rounds here.
His current ranking of world number 60 is nothing to go by and in the maverick Aussie’s case a ranking probably never is.
Kyrgios is clearly having a wonderful time after a five-set epic with Ugo Humbert, again, and a straight sets win over Gianluca Mager in which frequently he played with the crowd in his own unique way.
In many ways watching Kyrgios at this major has been like an exhibition match with a purpose and that seems to be exactly how he likes it.
In his way of a fourth round of 16 placing at this Grand Slam is world number 19 Felix Auger-Aliassime, who overcame a tough test from Mikael Ymer on Thursday evening.
The Canadian looked a little too predictable in places but, as he admitted afterwards, the 20-year-old is trying to be more ruthless on the court after eight ATP finals without a title so far.
He beat Kyrgios in three tight sets back at Queen’s Club in 2019 but the Aussie freak show looks pain free and without ailments.
Nick Kyrgios head to head at $2.03
Roger Federer vs. Cameron Norrie
3rd July 4:00am
The old warrior of Wimbledon Roger Federer wields his racquet for a Round 3 clash against local British hope Cameron Norrie.
The FedExpress looked below his best in a lucky forfeit victory against Adrian Mannarino but he will look to take homage in his second round performance against French veteran Richard Gasquet.
Federer showed better form in a 7-6 6-1 6-4 victory against Gasquet.
Norrie will certainly fancy his chances against the Swiss ace given his early form at Wimbledon has resulted in victory against Lucas Pouille followed up by a sharp straight sets win against Australian Alex Bolt.
Overall, Cameron Norrie was extremely efficient on serve to win 72% (28/39) of his 1st serve and 73% (19/26) on the second serve against Bolt.
If Federer brings the his Round 2 form, this will be formality but Norrie can take this to beyond three sets.
Total games over 38.5 at $1.85
Roger Federer 3-2 at $5.25
Ash Barty vs. Katerina Siniakova
4th July 12:30am
Ashleigh Barty will continue to put the woes of the French Open behind when she faces Katerina Siniakova.
Currently world no. 1, the Australian got to the 3rd round after beating Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1 6-71 6-1 and Anna Blinkova 6-4 6-3.
In the 2nd round, Barty was at her prolific best belting home 27 winners in a sign her hip injury has well and truly been put in the rear vision mirror.
Siniakova will face the might of Barty for the first time in her career and she gets the chance to put her best foot forward with a near perfect record on the grass courts this season.
The Czech Republic ranked 64th in the world has managed a 6-1 win-loss record on the surface this year and despite being unranked her court coverage and power represents a threat to Barty.
Can definitely see this one going to three sets and the overs market looks a solid bet.
Total games over 20.5 at $1.90
Ash Barty 2-1 at $3.70
Iga Swiatek vs. Ons Jabeur
4th July 12:30am
Many questioned the grass form of 2020 French Open Champion Iga Swiatek but she has answered her critics with aplomb as she heads into the fourth round against Ons Jabeur.
The Polish star has looked a completely different player this week at the All England Club.
She hasn’t dropped a set in her first three matches and has defeated the likes of Su-wei Hsieh and Vera Zvonareva in the initial rounds before thrashing Irina-Camelia Begu in the third round 6-1,6-0.
As for her opponent, Ons Jabeur, she is also in the form of her life.
The Tunisian 21st seed won her first WTA title at Birmingham last month on grass.
This week in Wimbledon, she has already beaten two former Wimbledon champions.
She defeated American veteran Venus Williams in the second round, handing her perfectly baked bagel in the second set and got the better of 11th seed Garbine Muguruza in the third round 5-7,6-3,6-2 on centre court.
What a game this is set to be.
Flip of the coin but Jabeur looks the value.
Ons Jabeur head to head at $2.05
