Wimbledon Day 4 predictions & best value bets – July 1, 2021

Wimbledon 2021

The first round is officially over on both the gentlemen’s side and the ladies’ side in the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. The second round continues on Thursday at the All England Club, and we’ve got three more top betting plays lined up for the day’s action.

Sam Querrey (-292) vs James Duckworth (+247)

Sam Querrey put on a clinic in his 7-6, 6-4, 7-5 win over Pablo Carreno Busta, going 3-for-5 on break points and serving up 22 aces in the victory. James Duckworth also had a strong showing in the first round with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 victory over Radu Albot.

Duckworth entered this tournament with a 32-61 career record including a disappointing 3-9 record on grass. Querrey is a grass specialist with a 74-41 record on the surface and a handful of strong showings at Wimbledon under his belt. When these two met earlier this month at the Stuttgart Open, Querrey cruised to a 6-4, 7-6 win. Given the American’s comfort on the surface and experience in this event, it’s hard to see Duckworth securing a different result just three weeks after their last meeting.

Sam Querrey 3-0


Elina Svitolina (-281) vs Magda Linette (+236)

Elina Svitolina rallied from a loss in her second set on Wednesday to pick up a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 win over Alison Van Uytvanck. The no.5-ranked woman on the WTA Tour gets what appears to be a favorable matchup against Magda Linette in the second round. Linette also needed three sets to pick up a win in the first round, going 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 against Amanda Ansimova.

Svitolina has met Linette twice before, defeating her 6-4, 7-5 in 2017 and 7-6, 7-5 in 2020. Considering the talent gap between these two players and the fact that Svitolina has historically played well against Linette, the Ukrainian looks to be a solid play as a favorite on Thursday.

Elina Svitolina 2-1


Pedro Martinez (+189) vs Gael Monfils (-219)

Gael Monfils made some great shots in what was an exciting first-round match against Christopher O’Connell that went to five sets before Monfils eventually secured a 4-6, 6-2, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 win over the Australian qualifier. It was a much-needed win for Monfils, who had lost each of his last three matches and eight of his last 10 before defeating O’Connell.

Pedro Martinez played in the main draw of Wimbledon for the first time ever this week and earned a 6-3, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 win over Stefano Travaglia. Martinez was largely out-served with only three aces to his opponent’s 13, but the 24-year-old fought for every point and earned the victory.

These tennis betting odds are based on the fact that Monfils is a well-established veteran with a recognizable name and a ton of experience in grand slam events while Martinez is a relative unknown with very little experience on grass. Realistically, while Monfils should be a slight favorite, his recent form has not done anything to inspire confidence. The price is right to take a shot on an upset here; at the very least, you’ll get an underdog who scraps for every point.

Pedro Martinez 3-1
