Don’t miss our two top tennis plays for this Friday’s action in London with the men’s semi-finals taking place. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixtures below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Federer vs. Berdych
Despite his age, Roger Federer is still one of the best players in the game. With a brilliant 93.55% winning record in 2017, Federer is now just two wins away from lifting his 8th Wimbledon trophy. Looking now at Roger’s campaign on this event, the 18-time Grand Slam champion reaches this stage of the competition after an outstanding straight sets victory over Milos Raonic.
Tomas Berdych continues his quest for history at the All England Club. At the age of 31, Berdych is still looking for his first Grand Slam title. Playing in Wimbledon brings great memories to Tomas with the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up winning 76.36% of the matches played throughout his career on this event. After an epic battle against Dominic Thiem in the 4th round, Berdych advanced to the semi-finals after Novak Djokovic’s retirement.
The bookmakers expect a straightforward victory from Federer with the seven-time champion available at 13/100 at BetVictor while William Hill offers 11/2 for Tomas’ victory. Even though we agree with Roger’s favouritism, it’s impossible to find any value on his current odds. Therefore, our advice is for you to place a bet on Berdych’s +2.5 Set Handicap at 101/100 at Pinnacle due to the tremendous value on this price.
Querrey vs. Cilic
Regardless of this Friday’s outcome, Sam Querrey already secured his best ranking since July 2013. Known as one of the best servers on the ATP World Tour, Querrey is an exceptional grass-court player. Against all expectations, Sam staged an astonishing upset in the previous round against the defending champion – Andy Murray. Nevertheless, Murray couldn’t compete at his best due to an ongoing hip injury.
After a slow start to 2017, Marin Cilic is going through a great moment in his career. In addition to his phenomenal 84.62% winning record on the 2017 grass-court season, Cilic is very close from reaching his second Grand Slam final. Taking a look now at Marin’s campaign on this tournament, the 2014 US Open champion booked a place in the Wimbledon semi-finals after a five-set victory against Gilles Muller.
This should be a very interesting contest between two of the best servers in the game. Due to Marin’s 4 – 0 lead on the h2h, the 28-year-old Croatian is the main favourite to win this match at 33/100 at Coral while Sam is available at 5/2 at Bet365. Despite Cilic’s unquestionable quality, Querrey is playing at an exceptional level on this event. With this in mind, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of the Over 3.5 sets at 31/50 at Ladbrokes as the best betting approach for this contest.
