Wimbledon Tennis: Tuesday 30th June
Wimbledon is already well underway and the British public will be right behind their man today as Andy Murray steps on to Centre Court in the highlight of Tuesday’s action.
However, there are plenty of other equally tantalising matches to get the juices flowing and it should be an excellent day at the third Grand Slam of 2015. It will be even better if we can beat the bookie with a few bets too.

Wimbledon Tennis 2015 Day 1 Review
A new British hero emerged to grab the headlines at SW19 on Monday as Liam Broady fought back from two sets down to beat Marinko Matosevic in a thrilling opening day encounter. The 21-year-old wildcard was naturally left in utter jubilation following the win and will now be dreaming of a huge upset in round two, where he takes on David Goffin.
Elsewhere in the Men’s draw, Novak Djokovic sealed his return to action with a straight sets win over Philipp Kohlscreiber on Centre Court, while there were equally easy victories for the likes of Stanislas Wawrinka, Grigor Dimitrov and Marin Cilic.
In the Women’s draw, Broady’s older sister Naomi dropped out in round one. Meanwhile, starlets like Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams and Venus Williams all booked their places in round two. However, there were early exits for both Flavia Pennetta and Carla Navarro Suarez. They were joined by first round exit for male seeds Tommy Robredo and Pablo Cuevas.
It was also a landmark day as Australian favourite Leyton Hewitt made his final bow at SW19 after a five-set loss to Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen, who took the final set 11-9. Aussie hopes were kept alive for Nick Kyrgios, however, who stormed through in straight sets.
Murray To Start Wimbledon Assault In Style
British eyes will be cast towards Centre Court on Tuesday as Murray begins his Wimbledon campaign with what should be a routine win over Kazakhstan’s Mikhail Kukushkin. The No.3 seed is a genuine contender once more and many will expect him to claim a second home Grand Slam over the next fortnight. It would be a huge surprise if he didn’t at least reach the latter stages.
Meanwhile, home nation hopes are also kept alive by Heather Watson, who will resume her first round match against France’s Caroline Garcia at one set apiece. Also, there’s the long awaited return of Laura Robson to look forward to, although it’s unknown how the young starlet will perform in her first Grand Slam for over a year.
The other headlines come from Rafael Nadal’s first round clash with Thomas Bellucci, whilst Roger Federer, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon are all in action. Arguably the most exciting clash of the day, though, sees 6th seed Tomas Berdych face a competitive Frenchman in Jeremy Chardy.
With the likes of Petra Kvitova, Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep all playing in the Women’s draw too, it should be another mesmerising day at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club.
Wimbledon Tennis Day 2 Betting Tips
The expectation on Murray could scarcely be higher over the next two weeks but it’s hard to see anything other than a dominant display from the Brit in round one.
He’ll be in good mood following his win at Queen’s. The 2013 winner cruised past the Kazakh in their only other Grand Slam meeting and that should be a pretty fair reflection of how things develop here.
