Wimbledon Tennis 2015 Day 6 Review
Saturday’s action at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club was a fitting end to a brilliant first week and sets us up perfectly for what should be a dramatic second. Best of all, Britain’s Andy Murray is still on course to claim a third Grand Slam title following a four-set victory over Andreas Seppi.
Centre Court also saw Roger Federer claim an easy triumph over Sam Groth, while Jelena Jankovic claimed a stunning performance to knock out defending champ Petra Kvitova out of the Women’s draw. Gilles Simon then won the battle of France by knocking out Gael Monfils.
Elsewhere, there were slight surprises as Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Angelique Kerber dropped out of the tournament. Nonetheless, we did see Caroline Wozniacki, Tomas Berdych and Marin Cilic all progress.
British hopeful James Ward was defeated by Vasek Pospisil. Still, that won’t take the shine off what will be a phenomenal concluding week at SW19. And you can watch the action live with Bet365 streaming.
Williams Sisters Meet In Centre Court Showdown
Week two at SW19 begins with a tantalising clash of the siblings as Venus meets Serena on Centre Court. The American sisters have won five Women’s Singles titles apiece, in addition to five Doubles titles together, and it should be a cracking showdown as they meet for the sixth time in Wimbledon tournaments.
Following that exciting opener, Murray takes on Ivo Karlovic and will be eager to book his place in the quarter-finals with minimal fuss. The Brit claimed a 3-1 win when they met in 2012 and shouldn’t have too much trouble here. The Centre Court action concludes with Roger Federer’s fourth round clash with Roberto Bautista Agut.
There’s plenty of exciting matches to look forward to on Monday with Novak Djokovic and Stanislas Wawrinka facing potentially tricky tests against Kevin Anderson and David Goffin respectively. Meanwhile there are interesting contests between Richard Gasquet and Nick Kyrgios, Tomas Berdych and Simon, Agnieszka Radwanska v Jankovic.
With the likes of Marin Cilic, Maria Sharapova and Wozniacki also all in action, it should be a cracking start to the second week at SW19.
Wimbledon Tennis Day 8 Betting Tips
British eyes will be cast towards Murray’s match against Karlovic, but out betting attentions are focused with the other headline clash between the Williams sisters.
It has been some years since Venus was the stronger sibling. Serena won the last Wimbledon meeting with relative ease in 2009 and the gap has only widened in those bridging six years. It should be another comfortable day at SW19 for the younger starlet.
