Roger Federer kicks off his Wimbledon campaign Monday on Centre Court at the All-England Club against Dusan Lajovic. Let’s analyze the most important matches of the day and find the value bets.

<h2>Roger Federer vs Dusan Lajovic</h2><p>The king of grass, Roger Federer is bidding to win a record ninth title this season. With no matches on clay court for the 3rd consecutive year, Federer made the perfect start to his grass season lifting the trophy in Stuttgart after beating Raonic in the final and losing the final in Halle to Borna Coric. On the other side, Dusan Lajovic has just 2 matches on grass this season, in Antalya where he lost in the 2nd round to Nikoloz Basilashvili. Grass in not his favourite surface and we don’t expect him to create many problems to Federer. The top seed will have too much for Lajovic and should easily win this match in straight sets covering also the games Asian handicap line. <strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Federer to win with -8.5 games Asian Handicap at 2.05 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=147&amp;a=32b59d0e-2bfb-43ac-987d-fd24429abae0" rel="nofollow">Betfair</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Richard Gasquet vs Gael Monfils</h2><p>The two great French players will kick off their Wimbledon campaign. Since 2004 Monfils and Gasquet have played 14 mutual encounters but just 2 of them were on grass, both of them in June 2017. Monfils won in Eastbourne and Gasquet won in Halle with both matches finishing with a decider set. We expect a close and exciting contest between 2 dynamic and exciting players. Gasquet has the 1st chance to win this contest as he enters this tournament in great grass shape winning the tournament in Hertogenbosch beating Chardy 2-0 in the final. He is priced at 1.5 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=147&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f" rel="nofollow">Bet365</a> to win this match, but for better value we will give him a minus on the games Asian Handicap. <strong>Best pick for the match</strong>: Gasquet to win with -2.5 games AH with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=147&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f" rel="nofollow">Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Aryna Sabalenka vs Mihaela Buzarnescu</h2><p>After reaching the round of 16 at the French Open few weeks ago, No. 28 WTA Mihaela Buzarnescu kicks off her Wimbledon campaign Eastbourne finalist Aryna Sabalenka. Both players enter the 3rd Gland Slam of the year on the back of an impressive grass season winning matches against top 10 players – Mihaela Buzarnescu against Elina Svitolina and Sabalenka against Karolina Pliskova. Sabalenka’s aggressive game is perfect for grass court and if she will manage to raise her level and make less unforced error she might have a deep run in the tournament. <strong>Best pick for the match:</strong> Aryna Sabalenka to win at 1.84 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=26ea6fa8-c86d-4d9d-9328-b4c0b06702ae&amp;f=2" rel="nofollow">Unibet</a>.</p>
