After reaching the semifinals in Roland Garros, Thiem is looking for another successful campaign in a Grand Slam event. Even though grass is far from Thiem’s favorite surface, the 23-year-old Austrian is always a dangerous opponent. to this, Thiem already staged some brilliant results on this surface. Besides winning the 2016 Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, Thiem defeated Roger Federer in that event. The Austrian is trying to reach the 2nd round at the All England Club for the third consecutive year.

Playing in Wimbledon brings great memories to Pospisil. Besides reaching the quarterfinals two years ago, Pospisil is also the 2014 Wimbledon doubles champion with Jack Sock. Due to Vasek’s terrific results on this surface, the 27-year-old Canadian decided to withdrew from Roland Garros in order to focus on the grass-court season. Pospisil couldn’t have asked for a better preparation for Wimbledon after winning 72.73% of the matches on this surface in 2017.

These two players will face each other for the 2nd time in their careers with Thiem emerging victorious from their previous encounter at the BMW Open in 2015.

Despite Pospisil’s undeniable quality on this surface, Thiem is definitely the better player in this matchup. He is also the most experienced on the big stages with a 31-14 career record in Grand Slam events. For that reason, our advice is for you to add Thiem’s set handicap to your betting picks since we expect a victory from the Austrian in three or four sets.

Free Tennis Pick: Thiem -1.5 Set Handicap (-133)Best Line Offered: Heritage Martin Klizan Vs. Novak Djokovic (2)

Known as one of the most unpredictable players on the ATP World Tour, Klizan is not going through a good moment in his career. In addition to his poor 16-17 record in 2017, Klizan may not be at 100% after his retirement from the Antalya Open last week due to a leg injury. Besides his recent physical problems, the 27-year-old Slovak is far from a grass-court expert with a terrible 25% winning record on this surface throughout his career. 

As we mentioned in our ATP Wimbledon tournament analysis, Djokovic is one of the main contenders to lift the trophy. Despite his lack of success in recent months, the three-time Wimbledon champion is returning to his best level. Besides his recent victory in Eastbourne, Djokovic decided to hire the former world No. 7 and grass expert Mario Ancic to help him on this tournament. With a brilliant 86.36% career record at the All England Club, the 30-year-old Serbian is one of the best players in history at this event.

This will be the 4th career meeting between these two players with Djokovic leading 3-0.

In addition to Novak’s edge over this opponent, Klizan is an awful player on this surface. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Djokovic’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on his spread as the most valuable play for this contest.

Free Tennis Pick: Djokovic -8.5 (-116)Best Line Offered: Pinnacle
