Zverev the flat-track bully
Alexander Zverev has made light work of reaching the second week of grand slams in his career to date. The 26-year-old suffered a major ankle injury at the French Open last year and is still returning to his best level, but his form in five-set matches has been impressive. The two-time ATP Tour Finals champion reached the semi-finals of the French Open last month, only dropping two sets on his way to that stage, and won three matches in straight sets at Halle in preparation for Wimbledon.
He stuck to his task well in round 1 to get past Gijs Brouwer, who is no pushover on the surface despite being ranked at 153, sealing a 6-4 7-6 7-6 win. Yosuke Watanuki comes into the match after edging past Marc-Andrea Huesler in a five-set match that lasted over four hours. It was only the 25-year-old’s second grand slam victory of his career, and the world no. 116 may present low-hanging fruit to Zverev.
Taking Zverev to cover a game handicap of -6.5 at 10/11 appears to represent value given what he is capable of in the early rounds of slams, and Watanuki’s modest record at the level. A 6-4 6-4 6-3 win for Zverev would be enough to see this bet land.

Niemeier off the back of a statement win
Jule Niemeier knocked out French Open finalist Karolina Muchova in the first round, with the latter fancied to make a deep run in the tournament. Once again, showcasing her prowess on the surface after making the quarters last year. World no. 124 Dalma Galfi stands in her way on Wimbledon day 5 after pulling off an outsider win over 18-year-old Linda Noskova in round 1.
Niemeier should arguably be a stronger favourite in this match and for that reason, the German looks like a sensible bet to add into our Wimbledon day 5 treble. The pair have met once previously in which Niemeier won in straight sets.
The draw has opened up for the favourite to make it to the quarter-finals once again, in Aryna Sabalenka’s section of the draw, 2/5 offers enough incentive for us to get involved.
Strong servers to produce marathon match
Jason Kubler and Nicolas Jarry both have game styles that should translate to grass very well. The former made the last 16 in 2022, while the latter has one of the best serves on tour when onsong. Jarry was not at his best in getting past clay courter Marco Cecchinato in four sets in the first round, a performance that will have encouraged Kubler, who comes in as a 7/5 outsider.
Over 41.5 games is appealing in this encounter, which does mean both players will be required to win a set. Kubler played 46 against Humbert in round 1 and Jarry needed 35 to progress. Jarry is never too far away from a tiebreak regardless of the surface he is playing on, and Kubler is well positioned to give him a run for his money, with the Chilean currently at a career high of 28.
Kubler has won eight and lost three on the grass this season and will not go down without a fight, potentially in front of some Australian support.
