<h2><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/atp/john-isner-vs-kevin-anderson-3506492/" target="_blank" title="Shop Anderson - Isner Betting Odds">Kevin Anderson (8) vs. John Isner (9)</a></h2><p>Kevin Anderson pulled off the biggest upset of this year’s Wimbledon tournament with a five-set win over defending champion Roger Federer. The 32-year-old recovered from two sets and a match point down to earn his first win over Federer in five attempts. This was Kevin’s first win on a Grand Slam event after losing the first two sets in more than four years. Adding to this, Anderson became the first South-African to reach the last four at the All England Club since Kevin Curren in 1983.</p><p>John Isner overcame 2016 finalist Milos Raonic to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon for the first time in his career. Despite losing the opening set, the American No.1 saved a set point to avoid going two sets down and then took control of the match. Known for having one of the best serves in tennis history, Isner has yet to drop serve on this event. John’s serving stats were highly impressive in the previous round with Raonic winning only nine points on Isner’s first serve.</p><p>This will be the 12th official meeting between these two players with Isner leading on the head-to-head by 8-3.</p><p>The sportsbooks are expecting a close encounter with John as the slight favorite at -108 <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4533&amp;book=5dimes" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join 5Dimes &amp; Start Playing Today!">with 5Dimes</a>. Despite Anderson’s incredible win over Federer, it won’t be easy for the South-African to overcome such a dangerous player as Isner on these fast conditions. However, the current price is not enough for us to get involved on hi moneyline. For that reason, our suggestion is for you to wait for an in-play opportunity to grab a better price on Isner’s <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/tennis/" target="_blank" title="Live Betting Odds Board">tennis betting odds</a> to reach the final.</p><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3506492, "sportsbooksIds":[238,19,1096,43,999996], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><h2><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/atp/rafael-nadal-vs-novak-djokovic-3506505/" target="_blank" title="Shop Djokovic - Nadal Betting Odds">Novak Djokovic (12) vs. Rafael Nadal (2)</a></h2><p>Two-time champion Rafael Nadal reached the Wimbledon semifinals for the first time since 2011 after an epic five-set win over Juan Martin Del Potro. Nadal is playing some of his best grass-court tennis on this event with the Spaniard recovering from two sets to one down in the previous round. On the other hand, the 32-year-old ended the match with outstanding numbers – 67 winners to just 34 unforced errors.</p><p>Novak Djokovic continues his quest for a fourth title at the All England Club. The Serbian returned to a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time since 2016 after a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 win over Kei Nishikori. Despite his victory, the three-time Wimbledon champion was unable to maintain his level throughout the match with the Japanese winning 60% of the points played on Novak’s second serve.</p><p>These two players feature one of the most epic rivalries in tennis history with Djokovic winning 26 of their previous 51 official encounters on the ATP World Tour.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, the market is well aware of Nadal’s brilliant performance with the Spaniard’s moneyline dropping 6.60% since the opening odds. <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4550&amp;book=Pinnacle" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Sportsbook">Pinnacle</a> offers the best price in the market with -103 for Rafael to reach the final. Even though we believe in Nadal’s victory, our recommendation is for you to wait for the start of the match. This Friday’s forecast includes rain, which might favor Djokovic if they play under closed roof. For that reason, the best approach is to wait for the start of the match in order to ensure the weather and how both players adjust to the game conditions.</p><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3506505, "sportsbooksIds":[238,19,1096,43,999996], "LineTypeId":2, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p>
