Our Wimbledon predictions have been in stellar form despite adversity in the opening week of the competition. Almost £40 in the green after five days of punting, with the day 5 treble narrowly losing, ending a nice run after day 2 and day 4’s trebles landed. We still turned a profit for the fourth day in succession.
Alexander Zverev did the business to cover a -6.5 game handicap against Yosuke Watanuki and Jason Kubler vs Nicolas Jarry went comfortably over 41.5 games, with the latter coming out on top in four sets, but it was the 2/5 selection of Jule Niemeier that let us down. The German led Dalma Galfi 6-4 6-6 (*5-4), two points from victory with a serve advantage in the second set tiebreak, but credit to the Hungarian, Galfi turned the match on its head and won the final set 6-1.
We go again with our Wimbledon predictions for day 6 in what should be another enthralling day of action at the All England Club. Saturday’s treble is at odds of 13/5 as we delve into two matches on the women’s side and one on the men’s.

Brazilian to kick us off
Beatriz Haddad Maia has been a growing force on the WTA Tour over the last couple of seasons and it is high time that she converted that into consistent grand slam contention. The 27-year-old made the semi-finals of the French Open and has always looked capable on a grass court. Outside of dropping a couple of shaky sets in the opening two rounds, the Brazilian has looked assured and ranks 13th for Grass court elo according to Tennis Abstract.
Sorana Cirstea upset Jelena Ostapenko in the second round and knocked out 2022 semi-finalist Tatjana Maria in the first, she also leads the head-to-head against Haddad Maia 3-1. However, two of those matches were back in 2016, and the, near on, seven years since have had very different fortunes for both players. Cirstea has never made it past the third round at Wimbledon, and it is always worth taking wins over Ostapenko with a pinch of salt given the Latvian’s volatility.

Dangerous young gun offered generous headstart
Marta Kostyuk has been one of the most exciting players on the WTA Tour since making her way to the third round of the Australian Open as a 15-year-old. The Ukrainian has impressively cast aside world no. 8 Maria Sakkari and former world no. 2 Paula Badosa to reach the third round in SW19, and will not fear taking on Eastbourne champion Madison Keys.
Keys is the rightful favourite, but the bookmakers have shown a lot of faith in the American and the game handicap sits at 4.5. The 28-year-old would have narrowly covered that in her second round win over Viktoria Golubic, 7-5 6-3. but Kostyuk is far more dangerous than the Swiss world no. 139.
Kostyuk has easy power on the forehand and backhand, and even a 6-4 6-4 defeat would see this bet land.

Wimbledon Day 6 Treble
We are going to be adding a shorter-priced selection into the Wimbledon day 6 treble, in slightly opposing Christopher Eubanks. The American is in the form of his life after winning the Mallorca title last week before going on to knock British no. 1 Cameron Norrie out on Friday.
However, he takes on a fierce competitor in Christopher O’Connell on Saturday, and the Aussie will fancy his chances of making the last 16 of a grand slam for the first time in his career. Eubanks has been very strong on serve this grass court season, but there could be an emotional hangover from his victory over Norrie, while O’Connell has been quietly going about his business in earning respectable wins over Hamad Medjedovic and Jiri Vesely.
O’Connell has won the pair’s only previous head-to-head encounter and is a tricky opponent on a grass court. At 1/4, at the time of writing, we are happy to boost the treble price a little by taking O’Connell to win a set.
