Barring Rafael Nadal’s second round slip-up to Dustin Brown, and Stan Wawrinka’s quarter-final reverse against Richard Gasquet, this year’s Wimbledon has been pretty much business as usual.
The world’s top three convene in the semis, where they are joined by Gasquet.
Sporting Index think the Frenchman will be little match for Novak Djokovic – they offer the Serb’s match supremacy at 18.5-21.5.
With 10 points awarded for victory and a further five per set won by, only a straight sets Djokovic triumph – as when they met at this year’s French Open – will see buyers of that spread return a profit.
Andy Murray versus Roger Federer is a much closer call. Murray’s match supremacy is trading at 0-3, making him marginal favourite.
The pair have only met twice on grass, both times on centre court in SW19.
Federer won the 2012 Wimbledon final, before Murray took revenge a month later to claim Olympic gold.
For those who can’t pick a winner, Sporting Index offer a number of other markets, including total games, with the prediction for this match 42-44.
The last two Grand Slam meetings between Federer and Murray, the 2014 Australian Open quarter-final and 2013 semi-final, produced 41 and 53 games respectively.
If the match goes the distance we could be looking at a high X-Courts score.
Here the individual scores in each set are multiplied to produce a total that cannot exceed 400.
For example, if Murray wins in three sets, say 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, then the result would be 83 – significantly less than the 112-120 spread offered.
