Wimbledon Predictions Day 2

Wimbledon Predictions Day 2 Featured Image

Check out our day 4 Wimbledon predictions for more value picks!

Wimbledon Day 2 gets underway with some matches carrying over from day 1 after proceedings were affected by rain. Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek eased through as expected while a major shock came on the women’s side as Coco Gauff was knocked by her compatriot, and qualifier, Sofia Kenin. While our early Wimbledon predictions showed promise in the form of a short-priced winner on the Centre Court lineup and some success in picking underdogs.

There is plenty of quality action to choose from in our Wimbledon predictions for day 2 with Sir Andy Murray returning to Centre Court to face fellow Brit Ryan Peniston. The courts are beginning to warm up and it is sure to be another cracking atmosphere in SW19, especially with that all Britsh clash.

Check out our 5/2 treble below along with selections on Murray’s return as a heavy favourite and fresh-faced all-rounder Francisco Cerundolo’s outing on Day 2.

Murray to utilise advantageous draw

The world no. 268 Ryan Peniston is a dream first round draw for Andy Murray, and the two-time champion has a great chance to make the last 16 this year. The 36-year-old took the crown at the Surbiton and Nottingham Challenger events in June, while Peniston has not quite backed up the promise that he showed in 2022.

Murray won ten matches in a row to win the two Challenger titles but maybe most impressively, he only dropped one set in that period. At main level the Scot has had to grind out a lot of final set deciders, and if he is to make a deep run in SW19, getting through the early rounds with little fuss to conserve energy and fitness could be crucial.

Peniston has pulled off good wins over Ugo Humbert and Jiri Vesely this grass court season, but there is a clear quality gap between his best tennis and the levels that Murray can reach if necessary. This is arguably the best shape that Murray has come into Wimbledon since his major hip operation, and though the British crowd love an underdog that is unlikely to be the case in this match-up.

Eastbourne Champion to cast aside unproven Portuguese

Francisco Cerundolo will be hoping to carry the form that took him to the title in Eastbourne last week into the upcoming fortnight at the All England Club. Along with that emergence on the surface, Nuno Borges is a very opposable player in our first round of Wimbledon predictions.

Borges is improving year-by-year on the tour but is yet to register a win at main level on grass. The 26-year-old has won three matches this grass court season but the highest ranked player he has beaten is Sho Shimabukuro at 162. Borges has a solid game without possessing any serious weapons on the surface and therefore is unlikely to cause Cerundolo heaps of problems, if he has fully recovered from last week’s action on the South Coast.

Cerundolo’s workload last week may be the reason he is not a shorter price to win the match, but having come through the gruelling clay circuit at Challenger level, the Argentinian has shown he can handle a busy schedule in recent years.

We can take a decent price to build our treble or as a single selection for Cerundolo to win 3-0 or 3-1 via the Set Handicap -1.5 market.

Surprise outsider offers short priced option

Zhizhen Zhang has been an emerging talent on the ATP Tour in the last couple of seasons after coming through some injury ups and downs at the beginning of his career. The 26-year-old got past capable grass court players in Lorenzo Sonego and Maxime Cressy to reach the quarter-finals of Eastbourne last week, where he lost to eventual champion Francisco Cerundolo.

Botic Van De Zandschulp is on a six-match losing streak, including both of his matches on grass in the lead-up to Wimbledon. The Dutchman has the pedigree at grand slam level to fall back on and problem-solve in this match, but his puzzling recent performances suggest that he is far too short with the bookies for this match.

If Zhang can build on his showing in Eastbourne, where the windy conditions would have been good preparation for the opening days in SW19, he can certainly push an out-of-form Van De Zandschulp close. We only need the Chinese player to win one set to see this leg of our treble cop. The shortest selection of our Wimbledon predictions so far.
