Wimbledon Tennis 2015 Day 5 Review
There was no dream result for Heather Watson on Friday, as the Brit dropped out to Serena Williams as expected. However, her spirited performance will have recruited thousands of new fans and very nearly gave the world number one the shock of her life. She went close, but a 7-5 deciding set defeat means she will have to wait another year to try her shot at SW19 glory.
That incredible match summed up the entire day at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. Novak Djokovic clinched an easy straight sets win over Bernard Tomic, but Grigor Dimitrov fell to a surprise 3-0 loss against Richard Gasquet. It was a cracking day on Centre Court.
The drama continued throughout Wimbledon, which is best summed up by the fact Marin CIlic and John Isner will resume their contest at 10-10 in set five. There were good wins for David Goffin, Stanislas Wawrinka, Venus Williams, and Maria Sharapova too, which is great news for week two.
Finally, Aussie star Nick Kyrgios exacted his revenge for last year’s quarter-final loss by beating Milos Raonic in four sets. The youngster will now face Gasquet in round four. Before that, though, we’ve got another scorcher to look forward to today.
Murray & Ward Flying The British Flag
The highlight of Saturday’s action sees Murray continue his bid for a second Wimbledon title with a potentially difficult third round test against Italy’s Andreas Seppi. Britain’s number one should expect to be pushed a little harder than he was in rounds one and two, but it would still be a huge shock if he didn’t progress.
As for Ward, there’s a real feeling that it could go either way against Vasek Pospisil. Hopefully the magic of SW19 will serve him well. Elsewhere, Roger Federer faces Sam Groth on Centre Court, before Jelena Jankovic takes on defending women’s champ Petra Kvitova.
Caroline Wozniacki will be expected to seal her place in round four too as she takes on Camili Giorgi. However, there are some potentially very close clashes in the Women’s schedule as Sabine Lisicki meets Time Bacsinszky, while Angelique Kerber faces Garbine Muguruza.
In the Men’s draw, French rivals Gilles Simon and Gael Monfils do battle on Court No.1. No matter where you look, there should be plenty of drama.
Wimbledon Tennis Day 6 Betting Tips
All eyes will be on Britain’s Murray and the 2013 champion shouldn’t have any real trouble sealing his place in week two. Nonetheless, Seppi isn’t a bad player by any means and shouldn’t be dismissed completely.
Winning is probably beyond Seppi, but he could quite easily take a set. Even if he doesn’t, there’s no reason he can’t keep it tight. Expect Murray to win, but we do think there’s value in the handicap.
