Manic Monday. That’s what they call the second Monday of The Championships and with good reason. There are several big matches set to be played at Wimbledon after the middle Sunday break, with the standout clash (at least in terms of public interest) the one between Simona Halep and teenage sensation Coco Gauff. Here are four tips for Monday at Wimbledon.

Kei Nishikori v Mikhail Kukushkin

Wimbledon men’s singles, Monday July 8

For the first time without the help of a walkover or a retirement, Kei Nishikori has moved through his opening three rounds of a Grand Slam without dropping a set. That is quite a surprising fact given that the Japanese player is looking to reach the quarter finals for his fifth successive Grand Slam.

The head-to-head record doesn’t make for good reading for Mikhail Kukushkin. Nishikori has won all nine of the past meetings between the two with seven of those nine matches decided in straight sets. However, Kukushkin has been serving really well at this tournament and has the ability to take the racket out of an opponent’s hands.

0.5u - Back Kei Ninhikori To Win 3-0 @ +100

 

Simona Halep v Coco Gauff

Wimbledon women’s singles, Monday July 8

No matter what happens from this point on, Coco Gauff has been the breakthrough of this year’s Championships. The 15-year-old has caught the imagination by making the second week at her first ever Grand Slam. Gauff looks the complete player, fighting back from match point down in her last match against Polona Hercog.

This will be a real litmus test for the young American, though. Simona Halep is a former Grand Slam champion and world number one. The Romanian has improved as the tournament has progressed. She suffered an injury in the first round, but beat Victoria Azarenka in straight sets on Friday. This is difficult one to call, but how can anyone resist Coco mania right now?

1u - Back Coco Gauff To Win @ +375

 

Sam Querrey v Tennys Sandgren

Wimbledon men’s singles, Monday July 8

This will be the first time in 12 long years that two American men have faced off in the second week of a Grand Slam. Sam Querrey and Tennys Sandgren are two of a rare breed in making it this far at this year’s Wimbledon. Both these players come into this match on the back of straight sets third round victories.

Querrey has always found his best form on grass, making the semi finals of Wimbledon as recently as 2017. This is an opportunity to make the quarter finals for a second time. When you consider the serving of Querrey and how many free points that should win him, this is his match to lose despite the good form of Sandgren.

1u - Back Sam Querrey Set 1 Winner @ -275

 

Johanna Konta v Petra Kvitova

Wimbledon women’s singles, Monday July 8

The way Johanna Konta managed to turn the tide of her third round match against Sloane Stephens was very impressive. For much of the match it appeared the British number one was set for a first week exit from the Championships, but she found her groove at the right time. It was her serve (she won 66% of her service points) that got her out of trouble.

It’s somewhat remarkable that Petra Kvitova has made it this far in the first place. There were serious questions over the Czech’s fitness ahead of the tournament after she was forced to pull out of the French Open. She has won all her matches in straight sets, though, and this promises to be a blockbuster tie.

0.75u - Back Total Sets 3 @ +134
