Marin Cilic and Richard Gasquet can push Djokovic and Wawrinka close at Wimbledon 2015 today
It’s quarter final day at Wimbledon today, with the men’s singles reaching the business end and the big guns are still left standing.
Andy Murray plays Vasek Pospisil on Centre Court today, with the Canadian the only non-seed left in the draw after an amazing run of victories which included a five-set win over James Ward on Saturday.
Andy Murray -8 games v Pospisil @ 6/5 with bet365
OK, so Murray needs to have a nine-game superiority over Pospisil for this bet to cop and we think the world number three can produce a masterclass against his unseeded opponent.
Take nothing away from Vasek, he’s done tremendously well to reach this stage and came from two sets down to beat Victor Troicki although this is a different kettle of fish.
Murray was eight games better than Andreas Seppi and even more superior over Robin Haase, with Pospisil having reached the end of the road here.
Roger Federer to beat Gilles Simon 3-1 @ 11/4 with bet365
Federer has been flawless thus far, although he meets an in-form opponent who has accounted for Tomas Berdych and Gael Monfils in the past two rounds, with Simon in no mood to bow out of this competition.
Roger hasn’t really been tested thus far although there’s little denying he’s still a class act and can find a way through to a semi-final against Murray while dropping a set along the way.
Richard Gasquet +3.5 games v Stan Wawrinka @ 10/11 with Ladbrokes
Wawrinka was only four games better than David Goffin in the previous round and meets an opponent who accounted for Nick Kyrgios in four sets. Gasquet also beat Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets and winning a set in this match should mean this bet cops.
Stan is not at his best on a grass court and might get the job done in four or five, although that won’t be enough to cover the handicap if the Frenchman’s serve holds up.
Marin Cilic +6.5 games v Novak Djokovic @ 11/10 with bet365
We’re not so brave as to oppose the reigning champion, although we think Cilic can win through on the handicap market.
Djokovic was seven games better than Kevin Anderson in their five-set thriller, although the South African had a wobble to lose the third set 6-1 – all the other sets were closely fought.
Cilic has a strong serve that is rarely broken and he’s come through two five-set clashes to set up this encounter.
