Gunneswaran is currently the top ranked Indian singles player at 91 in the world at present. Although 29 years-old, he was a late developer in terms of his tennis career and only qualified for the main draw in his first Grand Slam event at this year’s Australian Open, where he lost in the first round in straight sets to Frances Tiafoe of the USA.
At the French Open he went straight into the main draw through his ranking, but again suffered a straight sets loss in the first round to Bolivia’s Hugo Dellien.
The 28-year-old Raonic comes into Wimbledon in good shape, having been a quarter-finalist at the Australian Open at the start of the year and also reaching the last eight at Queen’s Club in the build-up to Wimbledon.
With one of the strongest serves in the men’s tennis and an all-court game that’s ideally suited to playing short points on grass, Raonic is very much at home at Wimbledon.
Prajnesh Gunneswaran vs Milos Raonic Betting Lines & Pick
There’s a vast gulf in top-level experience between these players and under the circumstances, it’s difficult to see much hope for Gunneswaran in terms of tennis predictions in this match.
Those are somewhat prohibitive odds on Raonic, so it could pay to back him in ‘Set Betting’ to ease into the second round with a win in straight sets (i.e. 3-0) at -200 (1.50) with Betway Sportsbook. That’s the tip in this match.
