Tennis Grass Court Wimbledon

It’s day seven at Wimbledon on Sunday and by far the biggest story of the tournament has been the return to form of Emma Raducanu. The Briton’s reward for seeing off Maria Sakkari in the last 32 is a clash with unheralded Lulu Sun and it will be disappointing if the former US Open champion’s run fails to continue against the qualifier.

Current US Open champion Coco Gauff is also in action on Sunday against her compatriot Emma Navarro, while former world number two Paula Badosa’s clash with Donna Vekic also features in our picks.

Under 20.5 total games in L Sun v E Raducanu @ 4/6

Emma Raducanu looks to be on the Grand Slam title charge for the first time since winning the US Open in 2021 and the brilliant Briton should overpower qualifier Lulu Sun in their fourth-round encounter on Sunday.

Raducanu swept aside Elise Mertens and ninth seed Maria Sakkari in impressive fashion in her last two singles outings at Wimbledon and there looks to be plenty more to come from the resurgent 21-year-old, who is an absolute force of nature when on top of her game.

Sun upset Australian Open finalist Qinwen Zheng, who was seeded eighth at Wimbledon, in the first round, and the New Zealand-born Swiss resident looks to have a bright future in her chosen sport. However, Raducanu’s claims on grass are quite a bit stronger than Zheng’s.

Set betting: C Gauff to win 2-0 v E Navarro @ 8/11

Coco Gauff looks like she will be tough to stop at Wimbledon this year - the American looks much more comfortable on the nippy green courts - and the world No. 2 should have enough to silence compatriot Emma Navarro in double-quick time.

Navarro has been making a name for herself by posing problems for many of her opponents. She’s already a renowned battler and a decent performer to boot, but such qualities may still not be enough to stop Gauff.

The second seed is the reigning US Open champion and she looks to be ready to go again in the season’s two remaining Grand Slam tournaments in London and in New York, where she will defend her title in August and September.

But it’s probably only a matter of time until Gauff goes all the way at Wimbledon too and, after making a hugely impressive start at the All England Club this year, it could take a superior player to Navarro to lower her colours.

Over 21.5 total games in P Badosa v D Vekic @ 4/6

There’s a tough battle in store between Paula Badosa and Donna Vekic and, while Badosa may be right to be edging market leadership, it would not be a surprise to see this one last for a while.

Amazingly, this pair - Badosa is 26 and Vekic is 28 - have never played each other in competitive action. But while both women are in decent nick, they are also feisty operators so it’s likely that no quarter will be given in this one.

For a bet, it could be worth chancing over 21.5 total games. Badosa has made serious progress on grass courts, while Vekic has always been a player holding a viable longshot chance in this Slam.
