Wimbledon continues with Day 6 on Saturday, July 2nd. Eight matches are on tap for the third round, including Nick Kyrgios vs No. 4 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Only one of the on-paper third-round matchups in the bottom half of the Wimbledon men’s singles draw panned out. And the reality is that a qualifier – either Jack Sock or Jason Kubler – will be in the second week of the tournament.

Odds as of July 1 at Barstool Sportsbook. 

The surprises so far have included No. 28 Jenson Brooksby, an American who is a neophyte on grass and showed absolutely nothing in the lead up to Wimbledon on that surface.

But he hasn’t dropped a set in his first two matches. And he could do the same against Chile’s Cristian Garin.

That would mean he’s into the second week, with the prospect of likely playing No. 19 seed Alex de Minaur for a spot in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Of all the unexpected outcomes at this year’s event, this might be among the biggest. It’s just too bad that his ranking won’t reflect it, because the tournament is not awarding ranking points this year.

Wimbledon Day 6 Parlay

A tennis parlay brings some improved value, if the favorites come through as expected.

If these three win, the payout is -157 – which is much better than they’d bring individually.

Rafael Nadal over Lorenzo Sonego
Alex de Minaur over Liam Broady
Taylor Fritz over Alex Molcan

Wimbledon Day 6 Matches to Watch

Alex Molcan vs Taylor Fritz Pick

We’d give Slovakian lefty Alex Molcan a slight chance over No. 11 Taylor Fritz – if only because Fritz has had some issues with some lefties in the past. Yoshihito Nishioka owns him; Albert Ramos -Viñolas has beaten him the last two times they played.

An remarkable performance from Taylor Fritz helps him take down Alastair Gray: 6-3, 7-6(3), 6-3 to reach the third round at #Wimbledon for the second year in a row.

Molcan had never played on grass until last year’s Wimbledon qualifying. And he won his first-ever main-draw match on the surface the week before Wimbledon in Mallorca. And yet, he has looked completely at home.

But Fritz is playing well, so at best, Molcan might take a set. Given the potential for Molcan to steal a set, Fritz is good value to beat Molcan in four sets in the Wimbledon odds.

Prediction: Fritz in Four Sets (+270)

Nick Kyrgios vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Pick

We’ll put aside Tsitsipas’ win over Kyrgios at Laver Cup. Because even though it counts in the ATP head-to-head, it’s only an exhibition.

Kyrgios

In their three official Tour meetings, Kyrgios is 3-0 – including a couple of weeks ago on grass in Halle.

Tsitsipas, who won his first grass-court title last week in Mallorca, lost in the first round on his last two visits to Wimbledon. So making the third round is progress.

He lost a set in his opener against obscure qualifier Alexander Ritschard, but steadied the ship with a straight-sets win over Jordan Thompson in the second round.

“I don’t start clapping when they’re scanning **** at a supermarket do I?” 😳

Kyrgios barely got past a British wild card in the first round. And there was … a lot of drama.

But then he crushed No. 26 seed Filip Krajinovic in the second round, ceding just six games.

He’s a dangerous customer on the grass when he’s fit and keen. He loves Wimbledon and he even pulled out of the doubles (which is best-of-five at the All-England Club) to save his energy.

Either Kyrgios continues to have bragging rights (which he will make good use of). Or Tsitsipas will finally have that breakthrough match at Wimbledon that he’s been looking for.
