Wimbledon Centre Court

Andy Murray’s withdrawal from the men’s singles was a blow to British tennis fans but the crowds will be out in force on day three of Wimbledon to get behind 2021 US Open champion Emma Raducanu, who is continuing her challenge in the women’s singles with a second round clash against Elise Mertens.

The women’s draw looks wide open and one of the potential contenders could be French Open runner-up Jasmine Paolini, who will be eyeing up a third-round berth when taking on Dutch opponent Greet Minnen.

The matches involving Raducanu and Paolini feature in Wednesday’s accumulator tips which works out at over 6/1, if all four selections are successful.

Emma Raducanu to beat Elise Mertens @ 1/2

Raducanu has had some tough times since winning the US Open in 2021 but she has shown signs of getting her game together in recent months and can advance to the Wimbledon third round for only the second time, by defeating Mertens in front of a partisan Centre Court audience.

Struggles with form and fitness have dogged Raducanu, who missed Wimbledon last year and has relied on a wild card for her place in the main draw for only the third time in her career.

But the 21-year-old had a strong build-up - reaching the semi-finals at Nottingham and the quarter-finals at Eastbourne where she defeated former US Open champion Sloane Stephens and world number five Jessica Pegula.

Raducanu made hard work of defeating lucky loser Renata Zarazua 7-6 6-3 in the first round but that was perhaps understandable given the nerves associated with her return to SW19.

She should be ready to perform at a higher level and may have a bit too much guile and athleticism for doubles specialist Mertens, who has not gone beyond the fourth round in six previous Wimbledon singles appearances.

Jasmine Paolini to beat Greet Minnen 2-0 @ 9/10

Paolini has been arguably the most improved player on the WTA tour this year and she can follow her run to the French Open final by defeating Dutch opponent Minnen and reaching the Wimbledon third round for the first time in her career.

The Italian made a successful transition to grass at Eastbourne where she overcame British number one Katie Boulter before losing in three sets to semi-final opponent Daria Kasatkina, who would go on to win the tournament.

Paolini has broken into the world’s top 10 and her general performance levels this year should make her too strong for Minnen, who has taken part in 14 Grand Slam singles events and passed the second round on just two occasions.

Brandon Nakashima to beat Jordan Thompson @ 4/6

Talented American Brandon Nakashima has had a mixed few years but he seems to be coming back to form and looks a solid selection to see off Australian journeyman Jordan Thompson.

Nakashima was ranked as high as number three as a junior and showed his talent with a run to Wimbledon’s fourth round in 2022.

The 22-year-old reached the semi-finals at last month’s BOSS Open in Stuttgart and is playing well enough to cope with Thompson, who has lost his last two Wimbledon second-round matches.

Roberto Bautista Agut to beat Lorenzo Sonego @ 4/6

Veteran Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut was a Wimbledon semi-finalist back in 2019 and, while he may struggle to go as far this year, he can defeat Italian Lorenzo Sonego in the second round.

Bautista Agut dropped just eight games in his first-round win over Maximilian Marterer and should have too much grass court nous for Sonego, who has not gone beyond the second round in his last four Grand Slam appearances.
