Wimbledon betting tips and odds for Sunday

British duo Heather Watson and Cameron Norrie are appearing in the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time on Sunday and both players are included in our Wimbledon betting tips.

We also preview defending champion Novak Djokovic’s clash with Dutch wild car Tim van Rijthoven but we begin with Watson’s match against Jule Niemeier.

Heather Watson v Jule Niemeier

Watson may now be 30 and outside the world’s top 100 but from out of nowhere she is suddenly enjoying the summer of her career 12 years after her Wimbledon debut.

Her run is all the more remarkable given she suffered a hamstring scare in the build-up to this year’s Championships.

Having lost to Serena Williams in the third round in 2015, Watson made the second week of a grand slam for the first time after a drama-filled win over Kaja Juvan.

Watson now faces Niemeier, the world number 97 who dropped her first set of the tournament when beating Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko in the third round.

Watson came out on top in three sets when they met in Mexico earlier in the year and a repeat of that at 9/2 begins our Wimbledon betting tips.

Cameron Norrie v Tommy Paul

Norrie followed Watson by breaking new ground and reaching the fourth round at SW19.

The ninth seed had been beaten five times in his previous eight grand slams at the last-32 stage but needed less than two hours to beat American Steve Johnson in straight sets.

Norrie made a few uncharacteristic unforced errors on what was a huge occasion for him but winning the opening set settled him down and he was relentless in the second and third, losing just one game.

Only Andy Murray among active British men had reached the last 16 in singles at Wimbledon and Norrie – the highest-ranked player in his quarter – now takes on another American.

Paul, 25, has had a strong grass-court season, reaching the quarter-finals at Queen’s Club and Eastbourne.

But Norrie to win his first service game, the first set and the match at 11/10 in the #YourCall market is our next selection.

Novak Djokovic v Tim van Rijthoven

Defending champion Djokovic booked his place in the fourth round at Wimbledon and a meeting with the unknown.

The number one seed beat fellow Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic 6-0 6-3 6-4 for his 35th straight win on Centre Court.

Djokovic is no stranger to the last 16 at the All England Club, having now reached that stage for the 13th time.

But he has never before met Dutch wild card Van Rijthoven, the breakout star of the summer in the men’s draw.

The 25-year-old was a surprise winner of the s-Hertogenbosch tournament in his homeland and has now won eight consecutive matches on the grass after his 6-4 6-3 6-4 third-round victory over Nikoloz Basilashvili.

This will be a completely different level for Van Rijthoven so the odds boost of 14/5 for Djokovic to win the first set 6-1 or 6-2 completes our Wimbledon betting tips.
