The men’s draw will be idle on Tuesday from Wimbledon with the exception of a to-be-completed match between Juan Martin del Potro and Gilles Simon.
The quarters will then be set for Wednesday, Day 9 from the All England Club, and one tantalising match will feature Kevin Anderson against Roger Federer.
The match is significant in the Wimbledon 2018 draw because it’s the first match where top-seeded Federer will have to face a player of substance. Thus far, his draw has been ridiculously routine and boring straight-sets victories have resulted.
In the bigger picture, Federer has only three losses this season. But two of them were to players less proven than Kevin Anderson, namely Thanasi Kokkinakis and Borna Coric. That suggests that Anderson could be dangerous in the upcoming match especially since Federer has not played many top players this season.

On that matter, there are many that think that Federer has enjoyed some easy draws in tournaments in recent seasons.
But regardless of your stance on that, with Federer’s 37th birthday just weeks away, he might have trouble in a long match. Anderson is capable of extending sets to tiebreakers and, although he isn’t as nimble as Federer, Anderson is still five years younger.
The odds are certainly a major selling point in this case. Anderson’s are too long to ignore as he is priced at $10.00 with 888Sport’s moneyline. A game handicap of +6.5 seems big on Anderson too.
You could back Federer at $1.06 to win but that barely helps – even within a parlay. If Anderson has a great serving day then you might sweat big time just for a small return. Anderson’s US Open experience certainly looms large here as he should have more confidence in these big matches now.
Betting recommendation: Anderson’s moneyline of +900 and game handicap of +6.5 with 888sport @ -149.25
