There are some intriguing matches to look forward to on day three at Wimbledon, and conditions should suit big servers.

<h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/john-isner-vs-ruben-bemelmans-3498739?mtid=126" title="Live Odds">John Isner v Ruben Bemelmans</a></h2><p>Wimbledon has been coated in glorious sunshine this week and the heatwave has led to fast surfaces that suit big servers. Isner, a 6ft 10ins American, very much fits into that category and he dismantled Yannick Maden in his first round contest. He hit 28 aces throughout the course of the match and never looked in danger of being broken. Now he comes up against Belemans, an unheralded Belgian who overcame Steve Johnson in an epic five-setter in the first round. That could leave him fatigued as they played in ferocious heat, and Isner – the ninth seed at this tournament – should capitalise. The odds on a straight victory for Isner are low, but <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=26ea6fa8-c86d-4d9d-9328-b4c0b06702ae&amp;f=2" title="top rated bookmaker">Unibet</a> and <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=3afd75d9-aef1-48cc-ab15-72cd5dbe1ce0&amp;f=2" title="top rated bookmaker">888 Sport</a> have 7/5 on him winning 3-0, which looks interesting as he is serving with great power right now.</p><h2> </h2><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/andreas-seppi-vs-kevin-anderson-3498670?mtid=126" title="Live Odds">Andreas Seppi v Kevin Anderson</a></h2><p>South Africa’s Anderson beat Norbert Gombos of Slovakia 6-3 6-4 6-4 in the first round of Wimbledon on Monday. The eighth seed is another ferocious server and he sent down 20 aces in his victory. Like Isner, the conditions play right into his hands and he could go far in this tournament. He has never made it past the fourth round at Wimbledon, but he reached the US Open final last year and he is now well-established among the world’s top 10 players. He is up against the veteran Italian Seppi, who demolished John-Patrick Smith in the first round. Seppi is a useful player, but he is better on clay and hardcourt than on grass, and he will struggle to deal with Anderson’s serve. These two met in the round of 64 at Wimbledon last year, and Anderson won in straight sets. He has the ability to pull off a repeat of that, and <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=87e126f9-4229-4364-9464-7fbff2763146&amp;f=2" title="top rated bookmaker">William Hill</a> has a tempting 29/20 on a 3-0 victory for Anderson.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/roger-federer-vs-lukas-lacko-3498741?mtid=126" title="Live Odds for this match">Roger Federer v Lukas Lacko</a></h2><p>Federer covered the 8.5 game handicap spread in style in his first round contest, romping to a comfortable 6-1, 6-3, 6-4 win over Serbia's Dusan Lajovic on Monday. The eight-time champion is the favourite to win Wimbledon this year, and he showed why by producing a very strong performance. He controlled the match from start to finish, displaying great aggression and poise as he picked his hapless opponent off. He should enjoy a similarly emphatic victory against Lacko on Wednesday. They have only met twice before, and on both occasions Federer thrashed him. Federer -8.5 games is 11/10 with Marathon Bet and even money with William Hill, <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=4d1545c6-88ce-4d1a-b541-31ea9e8a0d9b&amp;f=2" title="top rated bookmaker">Sky Bet</a> and <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=8737f02d-3242-44da-81a6-d0ca444a746b&amp;f=2" title="top rated bookmaker">Betway</a>.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/wimbledon-london-great-britain/agnieszka-radwanska-vs-lucie-safarova-3498748?mtid=126" title="Live Odds for this match">Agnieszka Radwanska v Lucie Safarova</a></h2><p>Radwanska is the underdog heading into this match, but the odds on her springing an upset look really tempting. The 29-year-old Polish star is a grass court specialist and she finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 2012. She is a former world number two and she used every bit of her experience to save six match points against Romanian</p><p>qualifier Elena-Gabriela Ruse in the first round. She looked a little rusty, but she still displayed great tenacity, and that could help her out in her second round match against Safarova. The Czech has enjoyed the better of the head-to-heads, and that might be why she is the favourite, but this will be their first meeting since 2011 and their first match on grass. Radwanska has the potential to excel on grass and she looks intriguingly priced at even money with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f&amp;f=2" title="top rated bookmaker">Bet365</a> to win this match.</p>
