Wimbledon: Back four generously priced favourites to dominate on middle Saturday

A mix of French flair and flamboyant shot-makers make up the best four-fold on day 6 of the Championships

Dustin Brown has made the tournaments’ headlines so far with his incredible upset of two time champion Rafael Nadal. Normal service looks set to resume on Saturday however, with a number of reliable favourites coming together to create an ace four fold.

10/11 – Gilles Simon to beat Gael Monfils

Despite being a favourite amongst the British public, Gael Monfils has never quite warmed to grass court tennis, failing to progress past the third round at Wimbledon in 6 attempts. Whilst ‘Lamonf’ will be hoping for 7th time lucky, his fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon will have other ideas.

Simon has dominated the pair’s head to head record with five wins out of six, and is the far more natural grass court player, reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon in 2009, and progressing to the Queen’s semi finals just two weeks ago. 10/11 is an excellent price.

8/15 – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to beat Ivo Karlovic

Ivo Karlovic has never been a man known for his stamina, and the big Croats’ marathon five set victory over Alexandr Dolgopolov will have taken plenty out of him. Things don’t get any easier for Karlovic in the next round when he faces two time SW19 semi finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The Frenchman is an excellent grass court player, and looked back to his best in a demolition win against Albert Ramos. He should prove too strong for Ivo.

4/9 – Vasek Pospisil to beat James Ward

British fans are likely to be left unhappy on Saturday when home favourite James Ward takes on Vasek Pospisil. The pair have never played on tour due to James’ lack of experience in high profile events, and this is something Pospisil will look to capitalise on. The Canadian has reached the third round of Grand Slams on multiple occasions and already has a Wimbledon doubles title to his name, proving his pedigree on this surface. Back with your head, not your heart in this one.

2/9 – Roberto Bautista-Agut to beat Nikolas Basilashvili

Little known Georgian Nikolas Basilashvili has seemingly come from nowhere to reach the third round of Wimbledon, but his fairy tale looks set to end on Saturday. Roberto Bautista-Agut is anything but a typical Spanish clay courter, with his flat game suiting well to grass. Agut won a title on this surface in Hertogenbosch last year, and stands 131 places above his opponent in the rankings. He will be extremely confident of progressing to the fourth round.
