Wimbledon tips: Best bets for the men's quarter-finals
Back success for Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in our Lucky 15 for the last eight at SW19.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC v KEI NISHIKORI
Djokovic to win 3-0 -
Nishikori has dropped a set in three of his four matches at SW19 so far, so is unlikely to prevent the three-time champion from cruising into the last four.
Other than losing the first set to Kyle Edmund on Saturday, Djokovic’s progress to this stage has been smooth.
He has a 13-2 advantage in the head-to-head between these two, winning two of their three grand slam meetings in straight sets.
ROGER FEDERER v KEVIN ANDERSON
Federer to win 3-0 -
Federer has not even required a tie-break to win every set so far, and that serene progress should continue in the quarter-finals.
The eight-time champion has now won a phenomenal 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon, winning his last two quarter-finals 3-0.
Anderson had to step up his game to stave off a comeback from Gael Monfils in the last round, but is not at the required level to trouble the Swiss master.
RAFAEL NADAL v JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO
Del Potro to win a set -
Nadal is yet to drop a set at this tournament, but that record should come to an end here.
The Spaniard has not beaten Del Potro 3-0 either of the pair’s last two grand slam meetings – last year’s US Open semi-final and the 2011 last-16 match at SW19.
The odds say that this is the second-closest of the four quarter-finals, so it is not worth backing the two-time champion to progress in straight sets.
MILOS RAONIC v JOHN ISNER
5 total sets -
This should be the most even of the four quarter-finals, so there is value in backing it to go all the way to a fifth set.
Raonic, favourite for this match, has had a quiet season and dropped a set in both of his last two victories against Dennis Novak and Mackenzie McDonald, who are both ranked outside the top 100.
Having been taken all the way by Ruben Bemelmans in the second round, Isner has won consecutive matches in straight sets. He has every chance of taking this encounter the distance.
