Tennis fans can look forward to plenty of exciting matches on day five at a thrillingly unpredictable Wimbledon Championships.

<h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/dennis-novak-vs-milos-raonic-3499367?mtid=126" title="Live Odds For This Game">Milos Raonic v Dennis Novak</a></h2><p>Raonic’s serve was clocked at 147mph in his second round victory over John Millman on Wednesday. It was so powerful that he knocked his opponent to the ground, while his thunderbolts also terrorised the ball boys and ball girls. He racked up an impressive 35 aces on Court 2 en route to a straight sets victory in which he rarely looked like being broken. The heat has made the Wimbledon court surface quick and it has benefited big servers, and Raonic has been absolutely ferocious so far at this tournament. He has not yet dropped a set and he is the clear favourite to beat Dennis Novak in the third round, with 1/10 the best price on the market. However, some punters may fancy the 13/15 <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=8b268052-553e-4cf2-9174-cf56ab1a531d&amp;f=2" title="top rated bookmkaer">Marathon Bet</a> is offering on a 3-0 win for Raonic. These two have never met before, but 13th seed Raonic has a lot more experience and power than the Austrian youngster and he should battle to victory.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/roger-federer-vs-jan-lennard-struff-3499609?mtid=126" title="Live Odds For This Game">Roger Federer v Jan-Lennard Struff</a></h2><p>Eight-time Wimbledon champion Federer has been in imperious form so far at the All-England Club. He covered the -8.5 game handicap spread in his first and second round victories, beating Dusan Lajovic by 10 games and Lukas Lako by nine games. You would have enjoyed better than evens on both outcomes if you had backed him on the games handicap line. The line has been set at -7.5 games for his third round clash with Struff and that looks tempting. They have met twice before, with Federer producing two tight victories, but on grass at Wimbledon the Swiss should dominate. Struff has just come through an epic five-setter against the big serving Ivo Karlovic, eventually winning 15-13 in the final set, and that may leave him fatigued for this contest, with Federer more than happy to capitalise.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/wimbledon-london-great-britain/kristina-mladenovic-vs-serena-williams-3499626?mtid=126" title="Live odds for this game">Kristina Mladenovic v Serena Williams</a></h2><p>Williams is now the outright favourite to lift the Wimbledon trophy for an eighth time after Petra Kvitova crashed out of the tournament. The American seems like she is getting back to her best after taking a year out of the game to have a baby, and that is a terrifying prospect for her rivals. She has the power, the athleticism and the big match experience to get the job done, and if the desire is there and her body plays ball she should romp to victory. She has only ever faced Mladenovic once previously, prevailing in straight sets, and punters might look at Williams 2-0 in this match, priced at 4/5 with Betway. She is yet to drop a set and she is looking supremely comfortable under the Wimbledon sun.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/wimbledon-london-great-britain/evgeniya-rodina-vs-madison-keys-3499198?mtid=126" title="Live Odds For This Game">Evgeniya Rodina v Madison Keys</a></h2><p>There is very little value in the outright match betting at this stage of the tournament, and that is once again the case in this contest. The best price available on Keys is just 1/5, so again you have to look at other markets. She is 7/12 with Marathon Bet to win 2-0 in sets, and you could put that in a double with Williams winning 2-0. Keys is</p><p>very strong on grass, and she has not dropped a set yet in this tournament. She has started to feature regularly in the latter stages of Grand Slams, and she should get the better of Rodina on Friday. Rodina is 29 years old but she is ranked 120th in the world, and she has never gone higher than 74th, which was all the way back in 2011. She has never been past the third round of Wimbledon and it is hard to see her troubling 10th seed Keys unduly.</p>
