Defending champion Novak Djokovic takes on Roberto Bautista Agut in the semi-final of the Men’s event at Wimbledon on Friday, with a place in the final against either Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal the reward for the winner.
Djokovic has averaged less than two hours on court per match at the tournament to date this year and lost just six games in dismantling the challenge of world no. 23 David Goffin of Belgium 6-4 6-0 6-2 in the last eight on Wednesday afternoon.
This is Bautista Agut’s first ever Grand Slam semi-final appearance. The 31 year-old Spaniard beat Argentina’s Guido Pella 7-5 6-4 3-6 6-3 in his quarter-final on Wednesday. That was the first set Bautista Agut has dropped at Wimbledon this year, who has had to postpone his stag-do as a result of his unexpected adventure into the latter stages at SW19.
Novak Djokovic vs Roberto Bautista Agut Betting Lines & Picks
Novak Djokovic leads Roberto Bautista Agut 7-3 on the head-to-head, but the Spaniard has won both matches they’ve played this year at Doha and the Miami Masters. A note of caution is that David Goffin also won his last match against Djokovic prior to Wednesday’s clinical defeat.
Those two victories alongside an excellent run at this year’s event certainly give Bautista Agut hope of causing another upset, but making Wimbledon 2019 predictions against Djokovic at Wimbledon is a risky business.
The Wimbledon 2019 betting odds are firmly in favour of the Serbian, with Novak Djokovic at -1200 (1.08) with bet365, while the line on Roberto Bautista Agut is +700 (8.00) with 888Sport. Those tennis odds are very prohibitive for backers of Novak Djokovic, so the market to look at is the Set Betting, where the betting tip is for him to win 3-0 at -135 (1.74) with 888Sport.
