Wimbledon: Watch out for a top seed exodus today

A jackpot fourfold on offer as a number of higher ranked players look extremely vulnerable on day four

Whilst there has been a lot of exciting shot making and plenty of great matches so far at Wimbledon, it is hard to ignore that there have been a distinct lack of upsets.

The likes of Federer, Djokovic and Murray have all strolled through without so much as flinching, with the matches generally playing out as scripted.

This could all change on day four however, as the likes of Dustin Brown and Nicolas Mahut come to town, all hungry for a shock.

7/1 – Dustin Brown to beat Rafael Nadal

Just one week after winning the 2014 French Open, Rafael Nadal was humbled by Dustin Brown 6-4 6-1 on the fast grass courts of Halle.

This still represents the pairs only ever meeting, and the streaky Brown will be keen to double this advantage when they meet again on Thursday.

In recent years at Wimbledon Nadal has lost to Rosol, Darcis and Kyrgios, and after suffering his worst season since 2005 looks extremely vulnerable against the unpredictable 7/1 shot Brown.

Evens – Ivo Karlovic to beat Alexandr Dolgopolov

Ivo Karlovic recently set a world record by hitting 45 aces in a three set match, and it is this serving prowess that has seen him win over 65% of his grass court matches this season.

His opponent Dolgopolov is fragile in high pressure situations, and as the pair inevitably reach the tiebreak stage of sets in their clash, the edge has to be given to Karlovic. Dolgopolov has only won 48% of tiebreaks throughout his career.

33/10 – Nicolas Mahut to beat Tomas Berdych

After seemingly going missing for the majority of the tennis season, Nicolas Mahut comes alive during the grass court swing, and has enough nous on this surface to knock out the big Czech. Mahut is coming off a title win on the grass courts of Hertogenbosch, and will take great heart from Berdych’s struggles in the first round.

Evens – Vasek Pospisil to beat Fabio Fognini

Clay court specialist Fabio Fognini has openly admitted to hating grass courts, and this made his first round win against Tim Smyczek all the more surprising. On Thursday he faces a far higher calibre opponent in Vasek Pospisil and looks no value whatsoever at 8/11.

Vasek is armed with a vicious serve and all round bigger game than his Italian opponent, and he dominated their only ever meeting by a 6-0 6-3 score line. A repeat result looks on the cards.
