Wimbledon betting tips: Nadal looks too hot for Fritz

| 06.07.2022

Wednesday’s Wimbledon betting tips and preview

The remaining Wimbledon quarter-finals conclude on Wednesday when Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios are in action.

Tuesday’s Wimbledon betting tips proved to be successful as Novak Djokovic beat Jannik Sinner in over 34.5 games at 7/4 and the clash between Ons Jabeur and Marie Bouzkova went to three sets at the same price.

Hopefully, Wednesday’s selections also hit the mark as we start with the clash between Nadal and Taylor Fritz, the 21/10 underdog.

Taylor Fritz v Rafael Nadal

Nadal is still in the running to complete the third leg of the calendar grand slam after beating Botic van de Zandschulp in straight sets in the fourth round but he is in for a much tougher test against Fritz, appearing in his maiden grand slam quarter-final.

The American started his grass campaign with a first-round defeat to Britain’s Jack Draper at Queen’s which he followed by winning the title at Eastbourne, meaning he is on an eight-match winning run, with all four Wimbledon victories coming in straight sets.

After a 6-3 6-1 6-4 victory over Jason Kubler, the 11th seed said: “It is crazy to go from where I was at maybe mentally after Queen’s, like feeling injured, I’ve just lost like three matches in a row, to now I’m in my first slam quarter-final.”

Fritz also beat Nadal 6-3 7-6 to win the Indian Wells title less than four months ago, so he certainly has a chance at 21/10, but he has yet to face a seed at the championships.

Nadal still looks impressive and so a win and over 38.5 games at 6/4 is the first of our Wimbledon betting tips.

Cristian Garin v Nick Kyrgios

Kyrgios has certainly been living up to his bad-boy reputation at Wimbledon having been fined twice, once for spitting towards a spectator and then for swearing, and it now transpires he faces a common assault charge next month in his native Australia.

It’s all water off a duck’s back to Kyrgios, appearing in his first grand slam quarter-final in seven years on the back of a nervy and troubling five-set victory over young American Brandon Nakashima.

Kyrgios had to take pain killers and a medical time-out for a shoulder problem which surfaced after his stormy win against Stefanos Tsitsipas and started to trouble him again in Monday’s opening set.

He said: “I’ve played so much tennis in the last month and a half, so I almost knew that it was time for my body to start feeling some niggles. I think that’s normal. It’s just something I manage.”

Garin had to come from two sets down to overcome Alex De Minaur in the fourth round and reach his second successive Wimbledon quarter-final.

But his first meeting with the Aussie looks a step too far as we expect Kyrgios to win and over 36.5 match games at 6/4.

Ajla Tomljanovic v Elena Rybakina

The last of our Wimbledon betting tips involves 17th seed Rybakina, who has won all four matches in straight sets.

Rybakina won just one of her three grass-court matches in the build-up to the grand slam but has found her rhythm at Wimbledon and is the 1/2 favourite to beat Tomljanovic as she did for the loss of just four games in Madrid last year, their only previous meeting.

The unseeded Australian, who eliminated Emma Raducanu en route to last year’s Wimbledon quarter-finals, had to fight back from losing the opening set against both Barbora Krejcikova and Alize Cornet in the last two rounds, so she is living on her nerves.

The Kakazh looks an interesting prospect at 2/1 to win in under 21.5 games but for the last of Wednesday’s betting tips, we’ll keep it simple and predict a straight-sets victory for Rybakina at 5/4.
