Andy made it seven winners from 10 bets so far by backing Genie Bouchard yesterday, while Barry boasts a winning record from his offerings at four of the last five Grand Slams he has offered predictions for.

Here are their thoughts ahead of Friday's play.

Over 3.5 double faults in Roger Federer v Milos Raonic at 5/6 (Ladbrokes)

More blustery conditions are expected in SW19 today and so I'm happy to play on the overs in this market. This looks likely to be a tight, serve-dominated match so there's every chance it goes to four or even five sets, thus increasing the chances of a high double-fault tally. The pair's four previous meetings have seen make-ups of 6, 2, 3 & 12 (most recent first) and it should be noted all three matches have been settled in just three sets. While hardly rock-solid evidence, the windy conditions seen yesterday produced plenty of 'doubles' with 13 in just four sets in the two ladies' semi-finals. Both men have been serving well but taking the added pressure involved here and the predicted weather, we should see four or more double faults.

Gregor Dimitrov to win 3-1 and Roger Federer to win 3-1 at 40/1

  • All Barry's selections are with Sky Bet, who are donating all winnings to the 'Rally For Bally' fund, set up in memory of former British number one Elena Baltacha, who died from liver cancer earlier this year. The money raised by the fund is being split between the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and the Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis.
