Written by Henry Watkins on Tuesday,July 10, 2018 1:47, EDT

Over in the women’s tournament at 2018 Wimbledon, surprise results have been the order of the day. While there have certainly been some upsets on the men’s side, things have mostly gone true to form, to the point where the #1 and #2 seed are still alive and well and heading into the quarter-finals. The men get Tuesday off to recover after what was a will “Manic Monday,” but the Tennis Betting action will return on Wednesday with 4 big matches set to go. We are going to take a closer look at all the quarter-final games, making some predictions as we go, so let’s get right to it.

Top Half of the Men’s Draw at Wimbledon

The seemingly ageless Roger Federer is the defending champion at Wimbledon and is once again making a triumphant march to the final. His opponent in the quarter-finals will be South African Kevin Anderson, who came into this event as the #8 seed. While Federer has cruised through the opening rounds here at Wimbledon, Anderson has had some real scraps, not the least of which was his 4-set win over Gael Monfils in the previous round, a match which featured 3 tie-break sets. Anderson is probably happy for the day off, but will it do him any good? Federer has won all 4 previous meetings, and while this will be their first meeting on grass, the result should be the same.

The winner of the Federer/Anderson match will square off against either Milos Raonic or John Isner in the semi-final. These two are quite familiar with one another having previously met 4 times in the past, splitting those games evenly. This one is a little tougher to handicap given that this will be their first meeting on grass, but I think the slight edge goes to Raonic here, simply because he reached a final on grass earlier this season in Stuttgart.

Bottom Half of the Men’s Draw at Wimbledon

We have all been waiting for previous ATP No. 1 Novak Djokovic to return to form after injury, and it appears it may finally have happened. His opponent in the quarter-finals will be Kei Nikishori, a man he has faced 15 times over his career. What is a little odd, though, is that this will be their first ever meeting on grass. Djokovic holds a 13-2 edge in those previous meetings, but it will certainly be interesting to see if he can carry that supremacy over to the grass court. You have to think that he will, given his previous performances at Wimbledon, which is why I like him to move on.

Kei Nishikori is not the Tennis Betting favorite against Novak Djokovic.

The other quarter-final in the bottom half looks like a great one, with #2 seed Rafael Nadal going against #5 seed Juan Martin Del Potro. These two have had some great battles over the years, with Nadal holding a 9-5 edge in wins in previous meetings. The deciding factor in this one may be the fact that Nadal has been perfect against Del Potro when playing on grass, winning both of their previous meetings on the surface.
