Wimbledon Day 1 Betting Tips: Andy Murray features in 6/1 treble at SW19
- 11am - Alejandro Davidovich Fokina v Hubert Hurkacz - 3-0 Hurkacz
- 11am - Casper Ruud v Albert Ramos-Vinolas - Over 3.5 sets
- 5pm - Andy Murray v James Duckworth - 3-0 Murray
Wimbledon is here and somewhat unsurprisingly so is the rain, forecast this morning at SW19 as the All England Club gets underway at 11am on the outside courts.
Two of our selections which make up this 4/1 treble are set to get underway at 11.
The big serving Hubert Hurkacz gets his campaign underway on Court 3 against Spain's Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
Huracz is the seventh seed this year and will be looking to build on reaching the semi-finals here last year.
The world number 10 arrives here off the back of beating world number 1 Daniel Medvedev in the final of the Halle Tournament in Germany two weeks ago and should be too strong for his Spanish opponent here, who has yet to get past the first round at Wimbledon. He reached the quarter finals at Queen's but withdrew injured last week at Eastbourne so question marks over his fitness.
The Pole has also pledged to donate 100 euros for every ace he hits at Wimbledon. A 3-0 correct score in his favour on Monday pays 10/11 and is the first leg of our treble.
Third seed Casper Ruud gets his Wimbledon underway at 11am on Court 12. The Norweigan is number five in the world rankings and comes here off the back of a final appearance at Rolland Garros in the French Open.
He's a long odds on favourite to dispose of Albert Ramos-Vinolas in round one, but the 34 year old Spaniard is a wily competitor and could cause Ruud some problems.
The 39 ranked player in the world has won 14 matches and lost 14 matches in 2022 and is winning the head to head with Ruud 3-1. He's reached the third round at Wimbledon twice and has plenty of experience at SW19 whilst Ruud has never made it past the first round.
Ruud lost in the first round at Queens a couple of weeks ago and seven of his eight ATP tour wins have come on clay, the polar opposite of the grass he'll experience at Wimbledon.
Whilst Ruud is overwhelming favourite to win the match, I think the Spaniard can take a set off him so I've added the 4/6 shot of over 3.5 sets in the match as the second leg of the treble.
Finally, Andy Murray returns to Centre Court later in the afternoon against James Duckworth.
The two-time Wimbledon winner is coming here off the back of a final defeat in Stuttgart three weeks ago but he bypassed Queens due to an injury picked up in Germany.
The Scot reached the third round last year and he's expected to win his first round match here against world number 74 Duckworth, who also reached the third round at SW19 12 months ago, a career best effort.
That was actually Duckworth's best ever finish in a major tournament and whilst Murray may be creaking and not the force of old, Duckworth comes here off the back of first round defeats in each of his four warm up events on grass in the lead up to Wimbledon and he's lost all seven of his matches in 2022.
A 3-0 win for Murray pays 6/4 and nudges our treble up to 6/1 with Betfair.
