The Wimbledon third round match between Denis Shapovalov and Liam Broady features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Friday July 7.
Bet Of The Day July 7 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
- Shapovalov made the Wimbledon semi-finals two years ago
- Broady has never won a third round match at a slam
- Shapovalov coming off straight sets win over Barrere
- Broady with no rest day after five-set R2 win
- Shapovalov beat Broady in straight sets in their only previous meeting on grass
- Shapovalov has won six consecutive sets at Wimbledon this week
- Broady ranked No. 142 in the world, never cracked top 100
We’re off to Wimbledon for today’s best bet as Denis Shapovalov aims for a return to the second week of Wimbledon when he faces local hope Liam Broady.
It’s been a poor season for Shapovalov so far, but this is a fantastic opportunity for the Canadian to go deep into a slam and get back on track.
The draw has opened up for Shapovalov, who now has got to be considered the firm favourite to set up a likely quarter-final with Jannik Sinner, with the winner of this match to face the winner of Guido Pella and Roman Safiullin in the R16.
We’re going to be backing Shapovalov to win this match in straight sets at solid value.
Broady might be playing at home, but there’s a reason he’s ranked No. 142 in the world and has never cracked the top 100.
Consistency. Broady can produce some good tennis, but not week after week and match after match. That’s what separates the best from the rest.
Yes, Broady did beat Casper Ruud in five sets in the second round, but let’s be honest – more than half the players in the draw could topple Ruud on grass.
I’m expecting a letdown from Broady – that was obviously the biggest win of his career by far and backing it up with another big performance will be extremely difficult for him, especially without a rest day due to all the rain earlier in the week.
Shapovalov has won six consecutive sets at Wimbledon this week and is coming off a straight sets victory over Gregoire Barrere, which is a very solid result.
Shapovalov also beat Broady in straight sets in their only previous meeting on grass. The Canadian made the semi-finals at Wimbledon just two years ago, beating the likes of Andy Murray and Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets, before pushing Novak Djokovic all the way. If he gets off to a good start, I can see Shapovalov running away with this and cruising into the fourth round.
