Day Six of Wimbledon 2015 could see Brown beaten by Viktor Troicki
BETTING TIP: Troicki, Simon and Tsonga to win @ 10/3 with Sky Bet
The men’s singles third round stage continues on Saturday, with eight matches including Andy Murray’s clash against Andreas Seppi.
We will also see Roger Federer tackle Sam Groth for a place in round four, although we’re swerving these matches and have instead found three encounters which offer far greater betting value. Starting with Rafael Nadal’s conqueror…
VIKTOR TROICKI to beat Dustin Brown @ 4/7 with bet365
“Dredder” was the talk of the town after beating Rafael Nadal on Thursday evening, although the Spaniard produced a distinctly off-colour performance. It could be a case of after the Lord Mayor’s show for Brown, who has not suddenly become a world-beater and faces a stern opponent in the form of Troicki.
The Serbian recently reached the semi-final stage of Queen’s, dumping out John Isner and Marin Cilic along the way, with Aljaž Bedene accounted for in the previous round. Brown will bring his flamboyant game to the court although Troicki now seems like a class act on grass.
GILLES SIMON to beat Gael Monfils @ 10/11 with BetVictor
The bookies are struggling to split the two Frenchmen, although Simon has won five of the past six match-ups and looks to be in fine form ahead of this third round clash.
Simon crushed Blaž Kavčič in four sets, winning three of them 6-1, while he has a superior track record at Wimbledon compared to an opponent that has never gone beyond the third round at SW19.
JO-WILFRIED TSONGA to beat Ivo Karlovic @ 4/7 with William Hill
Getting Gilles Muller in round one was horrible for Tsonga who had to battle his way through five sets to overcome his Luxembourg opponent. However, the Frenchman is made of stern stuff at Wimbledon, having reached the semi-final stage on two previous occasions.
He’ll be up against the high-speed serve of Karlovic who had an epic battle of his own when dumping out Alexandr Dolgopolov in the previous round, with the final set finishing 13-11 in favour of the Croatian. At the age of 36, can he recover quickly and compete with the energetic Tsonga? We don’t think so.
