Kyle Edmund v Alexander Ward (11.30 am)

Edmund is not at his best on grass as evidenced by having lost each of his last four matches on the surface. However, he starts as a massive favourite here against fellow Brit Ward, who is ranked more than 800 places below him. Edmund rarely faces such opposition these days but since the start of 2016 he’s won 33 of 42 matches against players who are currently out of the top 100 and 30 of those wins were in straight sets. Ward only won seven games in his one previous main draw appearance at Wimbledon last year and Edmund’s class should tell in a comfy win.

Ernests Gulbis v Victor Estrella Burgos (11.30 am)

Gulbis was ranked as high as 10th in the world three years ago at Wimbledon. That in alone is surprising but so is the fact he starts this match as the favourite. His ranking has plummeted to outside the top 500 as injuries and technique issues with his forehand have plagued him and he’s not won a main draw match on the ATP Tour since the 2016 French Open. Add in a woeful Wimbledon record of one third round appearance in nine attempts and we have to take him on. The 36 year old Victor Estrella’s stats are hardly inspiring but he’s made the second round at both other Slams this year and will never have a better chance to progress here.

Back Victor Estrella at 11/10

Milos Raonic v Jan-Lennard Struff (1.00 pm)

Raonic has been beaten by lower ranked players at all 10 tournaments he’s played in 2017 and while it’s perhaps a stretch to say he’ll lose here he certainly looks vulnerable. His form on grass was excellent last year as he reached the final at both Queens and Wimbledon but for much of his career his results have been very up and down on this surface and he’s lost in the first three rounds in four of his last six trips to SW19. Struff played the highly promising Lucas Pouille in both Stuttgart and Halle last month and took a set both times. He’s been beaten in straight sets in just three of his last 12 matches against the current top 25 and at almost 6/1 is worth a few quid to cause an upset.

Back Jan-Lennard Struff at 11/2

Ekaterina Alexandrova v Garbine Muguruza (1.30pm)

Muguruza won the French Open last year and reached the Wimbledon final in 2015. However, her other three visits here have all ended in the first or second round and after getting thrashed in Eastbourne last week 6-0 6-1 her confidence has to be incredibly low. In contrast, Alexandrova has improved her ranking by 150 places in the last 12 months and has won half her six previous matches against the current top 25 so should be feeling good. She beat Ana Ivanovic here last year and this looks a similar sort of match-up with the potential for a major upset.

Back Ekaterina Alexandrova at 3/1

Kiki Bertens v Sorana Cirstea (11.30 am)

Cirstea leads the head-to-head record 3-0 and has been having a decent year so far as she’s won eight of her 11 matches in 2017 against players currently ranked 11-50th. Bertens is a specialist on clay but has had little success on grass, losing 11 of her 17 career matches on this surface. Her two matches on grass this year have both been against players from outside the top 80 and both ended in defeats.

Back Sorana Cirstea at 4/5
