Wimbledon Day 2: Rosol and Groth shocks offer a huge return

Wimbledon Day 2: Rosol and Groth shocks offer a huge return

Four players to add to your Tuesday betslip including Lukas Rosol and Sam Groth

There are a couple of contests in the bottom half of the Wimbledon draw which will be very tight and the underdogs look to be excellent prices in these battles.

5/4 – Lukas Rosol to beat Ernests Gulbis

Lukas Rosol takes on Ernests Gulbis in south-west London and it will surprise a few that the Czech is second favourite behind the Latvian. Rosol is ranked 40th in the world compared to Gulbis who is down in 81st The Czech won the last time these two met and has beaten Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon before so looks very good to win this one.

6/5 – Sam Groth to beat Jack Sock

Big-hitting Aussie Sam Groth is another who can cause an upset against Jack Sock in the first round. Sock is impressive on clay but Groth looks to be in great form on grass having won a Challenger event in Manchester this month and reaching the quarter-finals at the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart.

The 27-year-old is now the holder of the fastest serve on record and should be backed to power his way to a win.

31/50 – Lu Yen-Hsun to beat Dustin Brown

Lu Yen-Hsun is a former quarter-finalist at Wimbledon and should not have too much of a problem with Dustin Brown in round one this year.

The Taiwanese reached the last eight in Nottingham earlier this month and has progressed past round one here in four of the last five years. 30-year-old Brown has played in the main draw of 10 Grand Slams and only won three matches.

30/100 – Christina McHale to beat Johanna Larsson

Christina McHale looks a safe bet against Johanna Larsson this year, with the Swede performing on her least favourite surface on which she tends to struggle. Larsson has never won a match at Wimbledon despite four appearances here and has played two grass tournaments this year without a single victory.

McHale has picked up a few wins in England over the last month and has been past the first round in SW19 three times in the past.
