Isner, a 6ft 10 American powerhouse, leads the tournament with a stunning 135 aces, and he has not dropped a single service game en route to the quarter-finals. Next up is Canada’s Milos Raonic, who has hit 117 aces and only dropped three out of 72 service games all tournament. Now they will do battle in what should prove to be the ultimate slugfest in men’s tennis. Expect tiebreaks aplenty and a gruelling, gripping contest under the south London sun. <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> is offering odds of 10/11 on Isner +2 games in the handicap betting and that looks attractive as he will take some stopping.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/roger-federer-vs-kevin-anderson-3504934?mtid=126" title="Live odds for this match">Roger Federer v Kevin Anderson</a></h2><p>Top seed Federer has breezed through to the quarter-finals without dropping a set and the Swiss maestro is in formidable form. He has vanquished four opponents – Dusan Lajovic, Lukas Lacko, Jan-Lennard Struff and Adrian Mannarino – and on all four occasions he has covered the games handicap. Each time we have suggested you back him to do so, and we hope you followed that advice. Now he faces a far sterner challenge against another big server in Anderson. The South African has hit 96 aces in four matches so far, and he overcame plucky resistance in the last 16 to beat Gael Monfils in four sets. The game handicap line has been set at -6.5 for this one, which is ambitious against a big server. But Federer has been blowing opponents away throughout this tournament, displaying almost ethereal grace as he weaves his magic across the court. He has a great head-to-head record against Anderson, having thrashed him in all four of their previous meetings, and nobody looks more comfortable on grass than Federer, so the 6/5 that <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> is offering on Federer -6.5 looks tempting.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/novak-djokovic-vs-kei-nishikori-3504985?mtid=126" title="Live odds for this match">Novak Djokovic v Kei Nishikori</a></h2><p>Former world number one Djokovic has endured a difficult couple of years, amid injuries, confidence issues and off-court problems, but he may finally be returning to his best. The 12th seed, a three-time Wimbledon champion, has only dropped one set on his way to this quarter-final meeting with Nishikori. The Japanese 24th seed is an industrious player who excels defensively and is capable of some powerful offensive shots. But there are few better defensive players than Djokovic, so this could turn into a real war of attrition, and Djokovic should prevail as he is a lot more powerful. He is the huge odds-on favourite to win the match, so for more value you could go for Djokovic 3-0 in sets at 10/11 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>.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/wimbledon-london-great-britain/juan-martin-del-potro-vs-rafael-nadal-3505344?mtid=126" title="Live odds for this match">Rafael Nadal v Juan Martin Del Potro</a></h2><p>Del Potro overcame fierce resistance from Gilles Simon to win 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 7-6 (7-5) on Tuesday. That may have worn him out, but the Argentinean will need to</p><p>rally as he faces world number one Nadal in a quarter-final showdown on Wednesday. Nadal has displayed customary tenacity and poise to power through to the quarter-finals without dropping a set. But it is hard to escape the feeling that he is not a grass court player and he could struggle on this quick surface against an elite opponent like Del Potro. The Argentinean is playing his best tennis since returning from a two-year injury layoff, and he has already beaten Federer this year, showing he is undaunted by reputation. Del Potro is the 12/5 underdog 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 and those long odds might tempt punters, or you could give him a plus handicap in either games or sets, as he will be well up for a battle on Wednesday.</p>
