Lesley Kerkhove v Ivana Jorovic

Dutchwoman Lesley Kerkhove has won five of her past six matches on grass, including wins over two former top 20 players, Sabine Lisicki and Varvara Lepchenko in qualifying last week, fighting back from a set down on both occasions.

In contrast, 22-year-old Serbian Ivana Jorovic has won just two of her past nine, with only two WTA-level wins on grass, a surface she has actively avoided previously.

It's the first Wimbledon main draw appearance for both women, each have failed to qualify numerous times in the past. This pair have met four times on other surfaces with Jorovic successful on three occasions but none could be described as decisive.

Neither player is particularly strong on serve so if you're an in-play punter, don't be afraid to take a better price at a break down. The closeness of the market is justified but recent form on grass deserves to be prioritised so that tilts it in Kerkhove's favour for me.

1pt Lesley Kerkhove to beat Ivana Jorovic at 10/11

DOUBLE

Cameron Norrie v Denis Istomin

Cameron Norrie will relish the home support on Court 16 in a match against the fading Uzbek Denis Istomin. The British left-hander doesn't have the strongest game for grass but will be buoyed by a win over Jeremy Chardy at Eastbourne and recent defeats on the surface against seeded players here in Kevin Anderson and Kyle Edmund.

Istomin on the other hand is in dire form, without an ATP main draw win since Delray Beach in February and losing eight of his past nine matches. That victory was in a challenger in Kazakhstan against a player ranked 450 so it highlights the depths of his current form drought.

In the grass lead-up events he has been beaten by Dustin Brown, Lukas Rosol and Paul Jubb, all players he should be beating comfortably at this stage in their respective careers.

Taylor Fritz v Tomas Berdych

Following the aforementioned clash we have a battle of old and new, with American Taylor Fritz facing one-time finalist Tomas Berdych. Fritz has finally settled into the ATP Tour and claimed his first tour title last week at Eastbourne, showing great resolve to surpass Kyle Edmund and Sam Querrey in matches which only came down to a handful of key points.

Berdych on the other hand is just about finished as a professional player. He played (and lost) two matches last week at the Boodles Exhibition, his first event since Indian Wells in March.

He has stated his hip injury just isn't going away, some days are just less painful than others. While one last hurrah could be still up his sleeve, he meets a player in red-hot form and sharp enough to exploit any fitness concerns in front of him.

1pt double Norrie to beat Istomin/Fritz to beat Berdych at 1.27/1

Dominik Koepfer v Filip Krajinovic

German Dominik Koepfer earned a main draw wildcard by winning the Ilkley challenger event just over a week ago. A 10-2 run on grass in June has seen him reach a career peak ranking of 130 and enter his first main draw at a major tournament.

While challenger form isn't exactly second week of a slam form, the only players to beat him in that stretch were Marcel Granollers (who won yesterday) and Dan Evans, who is strongly favoured today. The surface suits him, his aggressive game is built around a strong serve.

Filip Krajinovic had a great run through the clay season, reaching three finals (two challenger, one ATP) before a third round exit at Roland Garros. He then opted to miss some minor clay events and Queen's before playing two matches at the Boodles Exhibition, defeating Klizan and losing to Dimitrov, both of whom lost on Monday.

The Serbian's record at SW19 is abysmal (one win in seven) with only one of those losses coming to a player inside the top 100, and the sole win in qualifying against the world number 177.

History will repeat itself, with Krajinovic set to be on the early flight home.

2pts Dominik Koepfer to beat Filip Krajinovic at 21/20

Odds correct as of 2148 BST on 01/07/19
