The second-round action continues at Wimbledon with the men and women in the bottom sections of their respective draws bidding to continue their progress in the third Grand Slam of the year.
What is also continuing is the promotion being run at bwin.com, which sets the challenge at tipping Wimbledon winning bets that are priced at even-money or higher. Free bets are on offer for those that are most successful in this quest.
Full terms and conditions can be found here and today it is two attractive doubles that fulfil this criteria – one from the men’s action and the other from the women’s draw.
Alexandr Dolgopolov and Andreas Seppi both to win @ 11/10
Ivo Karlovic’s big serve can make him a difficult opponent on grass, with Tomas Berdych losing to the Croatian in the warm-up event at Halle and Roger Federer requiring two tie-breaks to see him off.
However, the 36-year-old has not gone beyond the second round at Wimbledon since reaching the quarter finals in 2009 and he has lost both of his previous meetings with Dolgopolov, winning only one set in the process.
Furthermore, the Ukrainian already holds grass-court victories over Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem this season, progressing to the semi-finals at the Aegon Open before losing a deciding set to Sam Querrey.
Dolgopolov has additionally taken both David Ferrer and Grigor Dimitrov to five sets at Wimbledon and so is more than competent on the surface.
Expect Dolgopolov to eventually get on top of Karlovic’s serve and a win in four sets would be no surprise.
Joining Brit Kyle Edmund’s first-round conqueror in our men’s win double is Seppi, who dropped only seven games in seeing off Brydan Klein in his opener.
Next for the Italian is Croatian Borna Coric, who had a far tougher time in taking a four-hour marathon against Sergiy Stakhovsky in the first round.
The victory may have taken its toll mentally and physically and Seppi showed his grass-court pedigree when reaching the final in Halle, before losing to Federer.
Seppi in four sets is a solid shout for those chasing greater profits.
Casey Dellacqua and Svetlana Kuznetsova both to win @ 6/5
Over in the women’s draw, there is another stand-out double that returns above evens.
The Australian support has been noticeable at Wimbledon thus far and expect a contingent to form on Court 17 to see Dellacqua against 17th seed Elina Svitolova.
2015 has been a big year for the 20-year-old Ukrainian, taking a set of Serena Williams at the Australian Open and then reaching the quarter finals at Roland Garros.
However, this is her first time beyond the first round at Wimbledon.
Dellaqcua’s SW19 record is far from inspiring, but key for picking the Aussie was that she hit 19 winners in just 16 games in the first round. Svitolova managed 20 in three sets and was far less reliable on her first serve too.
Kuznetsova has already won five matches on grass this year and played within herself to get past Laura Siegemund in straight sets in the first round.
Up next is Kristyna Pliskova, who has already lost to little-known duo Tara Moore and Yafan Wang on grass in recent weeks.
She battled back readily to edge past Tereza Smitkova in round one, but may struggle with Kuznetsova’s game management and ability to mix up the speed on the ball.
