Wimbledon FREE BETS with Raducanu, Murray and Djokovic in action

Stay up to date with all the latest from the All England Club…

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 6-1 6-4 Kokkinakis*

    But Djokovic holds!

    The No1 seed puts the frustration of the last game behind him and grabs the second set.

    He's now one set away from the third round.

    Raducanu is second on Centre Court today, remember. So she'll have one eye on this match.

    We can't be too far off now, you suspect.

  • Dave Fraser

    Norr blimey

    Over on Court No1, Cameron Norrie has started his match against Spanird Jaume Munar.

    The No9 seed is currently level at 1-1 as he aims to reach the third round – equalling his best-ever performances at Wimbledon… or indeed at any Grand Slam.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic* 6-1 5-4 Kokkinakis

    Oh no, is Djokovic going to win the set on the Kokkinakis serve?

    He's got a break point here… saved.

    And another… also saved. Good serve from the Aussie, forcing him wide, with Djok only able to tamely find the net.

    Poor lob attempt from TK and Djok has a whole court to aim a simple volley. He's dominating at the net with 16 of his 19 net points won.

    Third time lucky? Nope. Big serve, followed by a monster winner from Kokkinakis. Another deuce.

    Uh oh… another break point chance. Huge ace. This is sheer grit and determination from Kokkinakis.

    He's still in this! A big ace followed by a big serve and smash.

    Djokovic will serve for the set, though, after missing those four chances to seal it early.

  • Dave Fraser

    One to watch

    I told you Ruud vs Humbert could be a cracker.

    No3 seed Ruud took the first set, you'll remember, but he's now 2-1 down.

    He's now trailing the Frenchman 6-3 2-6 5-7…

    Has the French Open finalist got another gear to shift into or is his SW19 campaign over?

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic* 6-1 4-3 Kokkinakis

    Better. That's better from TK.

    He holds to 15, finished with a crunching forehand down the middle which wrong-foots Djokovic.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 6-3 4-2 Kokkinakis*

    The Aussie just can't hang with Djokovic's baseline prowess here.

    Kokkinakis can't outmuscle Novak, with the Serb storming to a 30-0 lead in the game.

    Oh, rare double fault from Djok and Kokkinakis is back at 30-30 to give the smallest sniff of a break.

    Nope. Two straight points closes out the game for the Serb. 4-2.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic* 6-3 3-2 Kokkinakis

    So, he does hold.

    Djokovic still very much in control here.

    They'll have a quick break for change of ends and Djokovic will serve to move within two games of the second set.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 6-1 3-1 Kokkinakis*

    Djokovic holds to keep up the pressure on Kokkinakis.

    The Australian will now serve knowing he simply MUST hold.

    There's no more room for error here… not that he's playing badly. Djok is playing well, here.

  • Joshua Jones

    Not such a perfect harmony

    Harmony Tan produced the match of her life last night when she beat Serena Williams in that marathon match on Centre last night.

    But the French star has pulled out of the ladies' doubles with Tamara Korpatsch with a thigh injury.

    Now that may just be precautionary because the doubles would have been today – and she may want to recover before facing No32 seed Sara Sorribes Tormo tomorrow.

  • Dave Fraser

    Peniston 3-6 2-6 4-6 Johnson

    The fairytale run is over at the second hurdle.

    The Brit has been dumped out of Wimbledon in straight set to US opponent Johnson.

    He's the first home casualty of the day.

    Remember, nine Brits reached the second round of the singles across the men's and women's draws – with Harriet Dart still to play her delayed opener.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic* 6-1 2-1 Kokkinakis

    Uh oh… bad news for the Aussie.

    Djokovic has already broken. He's now a set and a break up.

    This could be over quickly.

    Novak is in the mood, here.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 6-1 1-1 Kokkinakis*

    Djokovic quickly levels it to 1-1.

    Moving on.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 6-1 0-1 Kokkinakis*

    The Aussie is on the board in the second set.

    He's doubled his tally for the match.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 6-1 Kokkinakis*

    Can he hold and close out the set?

    Yes… to love, in fact.

    And he seals it in near-identical fashion to the last game, as Kokkinakis can only limply biff a drop shot into the net.

    That took just 30 minutes. Rapid.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic* 5-1 Kokkinakis

    Two break points for Djokovic at 15-40… can he make it 5-1 and serve for the set.

    The Aussie crunches his third ace of the match to save the first as Djok shunts one into the net for deuce.

    Djokovic manufactures a third break point of the game – but a huge Kokkinakis serve saves that one, too.

    Another chance. Fourth time lucky, Novak?

    Yes he can! Outrageous drop shot and Kokkinakis can only dump it into the net.

    Djokovic will serve for the first set.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 4-1 Kokkinakis*

    The Serbian charges to 40-0 on his own serve. He's clearly in no mood to make this a long one…

    Kokkinakis gets one back and then Djokovic makes a rare unforced error, thumping one wildly long.

    But he holds with the next point as the Aussie pumps one wide.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic* 3-1 Kokkinakis

    Boom, he's on the board.

    A huge ace seals it. That will do wonders for his confidence.

    He's still a break down, though.

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 3-0 Kokkinakis*

    Bish, bash, bosh.

    My word, it's 3-0 already. Kokkinakis is up against it from the get-go.

    He'll want to try to establish some rhythm, but that's so tough against the world No3.

    Remember this COULD be Djokovic's last Grand Slam until next year's French Open due to Covid restrictions.

    He'll want to grab his 21st Grand Slam title come next Sunday…

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic* 2-0 Kokkinakis

    The Aussie is broken in his first game. That won't do his confidence any good!

    Djokovic didn't quite look himself in his four-set, first-round win over Soonwoo Kwon but already looks better here. He's come out of the blocks firing.

    The Serbian dropped a set in his first-round match last year against Brit Jack Draper… and went on to win the whole tournament without dropping another set!

    Is he channeling that energy here? Yes…

    Good luck, Thanasi!

  • Dave Fraser

    Djokovic 1-0 Kokkinakis*

    He's on the board early.. much to the joy of the Serbian fans on Centre Court.

    Djok is certainly the favourite, but Kokkinakis is no slouch.

    This could be a fun one, stick with us!

  • Dave Fraser

    Peniston* 3-6 2-6 Johnson

    That's the set for the American. And, in truth, it wasn't particularly close.

    It will take an historic comeback for Peniston to drag himself into the third round.

  • Joshua Jones

    Star of the show

    But there is one name that stands above the rest when it comes to Day Three at the All England Club.

    She takes on Caroline Garcia second up on Centre Court.

    It is, of course, the one and only: EMMA RADUCANU!

    Here she is walking around the site earlier on…

  • Joshua Jones

    Bad news for Peniston

    Ah not what we wanted!

    In a flash, Steve Johnson got the crucial break and raced through to take the first set 6-3 against Ryan Peniston on Court No3.

    Both men threw down six aces each – with Johnson's serving stats particularly impressive.

  • Joshua Jones

    Around the grounds

    Ruud has a break in the first set against Humbert on Court No2.

    Tiafoe has already wrapped up the opener 6-2 against qualifier Marterer on 18.

    And No31 seed Baez is in trouble – he has lost the first set 6-1 against Goffin.

    Plenty of doubles in action, too, including No2 seeds and four-time Grand Slam champion pairing Krejcikova and Siniakova – they wasted no time taking the opener 6-1 as well.

  • Dave Fraser

    Peniston 2-2 Johnson*

    Nervy moments as Johnson forces the advantage on the Peniston serve.

    This is his fourth break point of the match already.

    But brave Peniston wallops one down the line to get back to deuce.

    He holds.
