Sam Querrey @ $1.15 – I expect Querrey to be too strong for Wimbledon debutant Thomas Fabbiano, particularly with his big serve.
Madison Keys @ $1.09 – Keys has a reasonable record at Wimbledon and has never lost in the first round at SW19. She should be too strong for Nao Hibino of Japan.
Heather Watson @ $1.17 – Watson should be too strong in front of her home crowd for Maryna Zanevska, who has never progressed beyond the first round of a major.
Worth a Punt
Pierre-Hugues Herbert @ $5.40 – I think Hebert is in with a shot here because there is an injury cloud over Nick Kyrgios. Herbert is also most comfortable on grass and a good volleyer. Won the doubles title here last year.
Fernando Verdasco @ $2.46 – Verdasco isn’t uncomfortable on grass and his big serve could prove tricky for Kevin Anderson. I expect much of this match to stay on serve and it could be destined for multiple tiebreaks. Verdasco a chance.
Denis Istomin @ $2.61 – Istomin is most at home on quicker surfaces and has won is only ATP title on this surface. American Donald Young doesn’t have a great record at Wimbledon either having only once progressed beyond the first round. Value for Istomin.
Philipp Kohlschreiber @ $5 – Some value here for Kohlschreiber in his match against Marin Čilić at $5. The German is comfortable on grass and interestingly has a 6-3 record over Čilić.
Laura Robson @ $2.87 – Robson has played her best tennis at Wimbledon and is good value against Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia who makes her first appearance at Wimbledon. Robson in front of her home crowd too.
Sabine Lisicki @ $2.22 – Lisicki loves playing on grass and has a great record at Wimbledon. Plays Croatian Ana Konjuh and I give her a good chance.
Elina Svitolina @ $2.17 – Interestingly the number 4 seed is the outsider against Aussie Ash Barty. Value for any 4th seed in the first round of a major.
