J Janowicz 8-13 Bet365 to defeat T Robredo – The Pole came through an epic 5 set match against Lleyton Hewitt yesterday and will feel more confident for doing so. Janowicz a 2013 semi-finalist can be erratic but I think he will have too much for Tommy Robredo today. The Spaniard is definitely not a natural grass court player and although he came through the 2nd round very easily against Mannarino, Tommy will definitely not have it as easy against Janowicz, who looks a good price.
S Lisicki 6/4 Bet365 to defeat A Ivanovic – This match should be a cracker. Sabine is not hitting her 2013 form yet but never discount her serve and power shot making on the grass. If she gets on top she can take out Ivanovic. Ana is on good grass court form though and will not be easy. H2H its 1-0 to the Serbian a very easy win on German clay 3 & 1. I feel though this will be closer and think Lisicki may be inspired today being on a show court.
D Istomin 9/4 Bet365 to defeat S Wawrinka - The Uzbekistan star has a win over Wawrinka in their H2H and it came at Wimbledon, a 5 set clash. Istomin has quietly come through the draw in the early rounds and if he keeps his head together can cause problems for the Australian Open champion. Wawrinka was lucky to come through against Lu in the last round and I expect him to struggle again, though his experience may count against underachiever Istomin.
