Known as one of the best counter punchers in the game, Alison Riske is an exceptional grass-court player with a brilliant 66.23% winning record on this surface. At the age of 27, Riske is going through the best moment in her career and is just one win away from an unprecedented place in the 2nd week of Wimbledon. Looking now at Alison’s campaign on this event, the world no.46 reaches this stage of the competition after an outstanding comeback against the 12th seed – Kristina Mladenovic.

The fast court conditions on grass are also perfect for Coco Vandeweghe’s powerful game style. Despite her poor 53.84% winning record on other surfaces, Vandeweghe won 70.59% of the matches played throughout her career on grass. After a shaky start with 1 ace and 7 double faults on her debut in Wimbledon against Mona Barthel, the 25-year-old American didn’t face a single break point in the following round against Tajana Maria. Adding to this, Vandeweghe ended the match with impressive numbers – 31 winners and only 18 unforced errors.

These two players know each other very well. Not only are they good friends off the court but this is also their 9th official meeting with four victories for each side.

Despite the balance on the h2h, Riske won all their last three encounters. Adding to this, Alison also emerged victorious from their previous meeting on grass back in 2011. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over to your betting picks since we expect a much closer contest than the odds suggest.

Agnieszka Radwanska (9) vs. Timea Bacsinszky (19)

Despite her undeniable talent, Agnieszka Radwanska’s glorious days are long gone with a terrible 13 – 10 record in 2017. After struggling with several physical problems in recent months, the 28-year-old Pole is very close from leaving the top 10 for the first time since 2015. Taking a look now at Agnieszka’s campaign on this event, the former world no.2 was on the brink of elimination in the previous round against Christina McHale. However, the American couldn’t convert any of the two match points she had on the 2nd set tie break.

Playing on the big stages brings the best out of Timea Bacsinszky. Known as one of the greatest competitors in the game, Timea is just win away from booking a place into Wimbledon’s 2nd week for the second time in three years. Considering now Bacsinszky’s numbers throughout this tournament, the highlight definitely goes to her return to serve with the world no.20 winning 61.11% of the points on her opponents’ serve.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Bacsinszky leading on the h2h by 2 – 0.

Even though Agnieszka is always a dangerous opponent on this surface, it’s impossible to trust on the 2012 Wimbledon runner-up at this moment. On the other hand, Bacsinszky is a terrible match-up for Radwanska. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of Timea’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on the Swiss to secure a place in the following round.
