<div><h2>Donna Vekic (22) vs. Alison Riske</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check Vekic - Riske Betting Odds"><strong>Tuesday, July 2, London</strong></a></p><p>Once considered one of the most promising young players on the WTA Tour, Donna Vekic is finally living up to expectations. The 23-year-old has enjoyed a strong start to the season, breaking into the Top 25 for the first time in her career. Vekic is an outstanding grass-court player and will try to continue her good run of form after reaching the Nature Valley Open in Nottingham. Adding to this, the No.22 seed has also been a great investment this year, winning 11 of her last 13 matches when priced below even money.</p><p>Vekic will open her campaign on Tuesday against Alison Riske from the United States. Riske loves to play on grass and is always a tough player to face on this surface. The world No.54 won her second career title at the Libema Open in s-Hertogenbosch a few weeks ago after an incredible 0-6, 7-6(3), 7-5 win over Kiki Bertens in the final. Nevertheless, Riske never made it past the third round in Wimbledon and only won 47.06% of the matches played throughout her career at the All England Club.</p><p>This will be the fourth official meeting between these two players. Vekic leads 2-1 in their head-to-head but Riske won their most recent encounter at the 2017 Nature Valley Classic in Birmingham.</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, Vekic is the favourite at 57/100 (1.57) with <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair &amp; Start Playing Today!">Betfair</a> while <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a> offers 3/2 (2.50) for Riske to win this match. Both players enjoy the conditions on grass but the Croat is currently at a higher level than her opponent. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Vekic’s moneyline to your <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> as the best value bet for this contest.</p><p><a href=";a=f339dce1-88de-4994-ab6a-c24e019bdf3b&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Joao Sousa vs. Paul Jubb (WC)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Sousa - Jubb Betting Odds"><strong>Tuesday, July 2, London</strong></a></p><p>Paul Jubb will make his first Wimbledon appearance this season after receiving a wild card into the main draw. The 19-year-old only played a couple of professional tournaments on the ATP Tour but enjoyed great success on the American college circuit, winning the NCAA men’s singles championship earlier this year. Jubb has also impressed on the grass in recent weeks, reaching the main draw at the Nature Valley International after defeating Denis Istomin and Andrey Rublev.</p><p>Looking now at Paul’s draw on this event, the British teenager will take on Joao Sousa. The best Portuguese tennis player ever will try to end a three-match losing streak at the All England Club and book a place in the second round for the first time since 2016. Sousa is an outstanding competitor but he’s not the kind of player who is going to outplay his opponents. The 30-year-old has a 22-27 career record on Grand Slam events but only seven matches throughout his entire career at this level in straight-sets. Adding to this, Sousa lost always at least one set in all his previous eight encounters in Wimbledon.</p><p>The bookmakers are expecting a solid win from Sousa on this match with the Portuguese as the main favourite at 9/25 (1.36) with <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a>. Nevertheless, Jubb is a very talented player and will have the crowd’s endearing on this match. On the other hand, it’s hard to see Sousa winning in straight sets, which makes the Over 3.5 sets at 16/25 (1.64) with <a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in game with Unibet!">Unibet</a> the best approach for this first-round contest.</p></div>
