Andy made it five winners from eight bets so far with an 9/1 shot coming in 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 Wednesday's play.

Grigor Dimitrov to beat Andy Murray at 3/1

Defending champion Murray has done all that has been asked of him so far but he's faced limited opposition, it has to be said. This is a big step up with Queen's Club winner Dimitrov having enjoyed a fine season so far, one which has included a win over Murray in Acapulco. The Briton has struggled when the quality has risen and he comes into this match having beaten just two players ranked inside the top 20 since his triumph here 12 months ago. His Bulgarian foe's form suggests Dimitrov is on the brink of a truly big breakthrough and after yesterday's 18/1 success, we've certainly got enough in the bank to have a nibble at the 3/1 about an upset.

Bouchard to win 2-0 and Halep to win 2-0 at 9/2

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

Cilic to win 3-2 and Raonic to win 3-1 at 70/1

  • 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.
