Pablo Carreno Busta News & Form

The World No. 59 is having a poor season, winning just eight of his 17 matches in 2019. Also, Carreno Busta recorded five straight first-round exits prior to Roland Garros where he reached the round of 32. On the other hand, Pablo made it to the semifinals in Antalya this week, tallying a couple of wins on the grass court which could be a slight boost ahead of Wimbledon.

Carreno Busta has a 2-7 record on grass in his career excluding qualifying rounds, and the Spaniard has never made it to the second round at Wimbledon, losing for times in the opening round. Pablo won three ATP titles in his career and lost three championship matches.

Alexei Popyrin News & Form

The 19-year old Australian will have a debut at Wimbledon, reaching the main draw through qualifiers. On his way to the first round, Popyrin defeated Federico Coria 6-2 7-5, Mats Moraing 6-1 3-6 6-1, and Bjorn Fratangelo 6-3 7-6 6-7 7-6.

Popyrin is coming to London as the World No. 99, and he has a 5-10 record on the ATP Tour this season. Two weeks ago, Alexei lost to Roberto Carballes Baena in three sets in the first round of the qualifiers at the Queens Club, while Popyrin dropped his only match on grass in the main draw, losing to Milos Raonic in three sets at the 2019 Stuttgart Open.

Carreno Busta vs Popyrin Betting Tip

Although Carreno Busta is far more experienced player than Popyrin, the fact that he’s never won a match at Wimbledon set the Australian as a favourite. Popyrin possesses a rocket serve and strong groundstrokes, while his footwork could a problem on grass, but if you are looking for the best side bet, take the Australian to win straight up at 4/7 with William Hill.

Payout Ratio

On the other side, I would be surprised if Carreno Busta fails to win a set here. The Spaniard should take advantage of any Popyrin’s drop in performance, so when it comes to the game totals, take the over at 4/5 with Betway.
