Monday at Wimbledon: Just another manic Monday?

| 09.07.2018

The second week at SW19 is here and many are calling this ‘manic Monday’ with all the men’s and women’s last-16 singles ties on show.

World number-one Simona Halep let another major title chance sleep over the weekend. But there’s still Serena Williams, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal all in action.

American pop-rock band The Bangles may have called the mania back in 1987. But it may turn into a magic Monday on day seven.

First up on Centre-Court is Roger Federer. The world number-one will hope to serve up a victory over Adrian Mannarino.

Fed has come through in straight-sets on the way to the Round of 16. It’s 2/7 for the clean sweep here.Whilst he’s 1/40 to win the match.

However, Mannarino has won the opening set in each of his matches so far. He’s 11/2 to grab the first set.

The Frenchman hasn’t beaten Federer in their five meetings, but is 14/1 to do it today.

Former women’s top seed Angelique Kerber opens the day on number 1 court. She’s 4/11 to take the win. Her opponent Belinda Bencic is 9/4 for victory.

Serena Williams follows on Centre Court. The woman everyone wants to beat on the tour will come up against Evgeniya Rodina.

Rodina beat highly-rated Madison Keys in three sets in the last round. Williams hasn’t dropped a set though and is 3/10 to take it 2-0.

The match betting is 1/12 for Williams to march on. Rodina is 13/2 to cause another upset.

Closing on centre-court is French Open champion Rafael Nadal. He may not have gone past the fourth round since 2011 but are joint-second favourite to win the tournament at 5/1.

The Spaniard must beat Jiri Vesely first though. Vesely has already overcome top twenty seeds Diego Shwartzman and Fabio Fognini in two of the three opening rounds.

The 24-year-old 13/2 to beat Nadal. But Rafa is 1/12 for victory.

Novak Djokovic is last to hit on number 1 court. After making steady strides at the French Open and Queen’s he has found some form at the All-England Club.

The Serb saw off the last British hope in Kyle Edmund and is now 5/1 to win the competition.

He faces Karen Khachanov in round-four. The Russian’s last two games have gone to five-sets. It’s 11/2 to go the distance and Khachanov to win.

However, Nole is 1/8 to advance.
