I compiled a perfect 3-0 record with my best bets on Day 1 at Wimbledon and I’m still perfect since Day 2 was a complete washout aside from the matches under roofs on the 2 show courts. In addition to my outstanding plays from Tuesday, it’s time to keep my foot on the gas pedal and charge ahead into Wednesday with some more best bets for the beginning of second-round action.

There isn’t a ton to work with because even a fair amount of Day 1 matches have not yet been completed, so the Wednesday schedule is not as full as normal. Nonetheless, there are some plays that should be made. Here they are, and also be sure to check out my best outright bets on both the men’s and women’s sides.

Diego Schwartzman no sets won against Jannik Sinner (-138)

There is no reason to overthink this one; picking Sinner to win without dropping a set is the obvious choice. The 21-year-old Italian has faced Sinner on 3 occasions and is 3-0 without losing a single set. In fact, Schwartzman has gotten more than 2 games in a set just once, and never more than 4. As if that isn’t enough, consider these numbers: Sinner is 33-10 this season and 8-4 on grass over the past 2 years; Schwartzman is 9-16 this season and 10-15 lifetime on grass. The 30-year-old Argentine would have a chance to be somewhat competitive on clay, but on the slick stuff this will almost certainly be an absolute beatdown.

Veronika Kudermetova -1.5 games over Marketa Vondrousova (-115)

Kudermetova is one of my picks to win the tournament, so I’m certainly going to back her in the second round. The 26-year-old Russian has been outstanding pretty much this entire season and she is showing no signs of slowing down on grass. Kudermetova upset Aryna Sabalenka in Berlin and finished runner-up in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. She opened at the All-England Club on Monday with a straight-set victory over a dangerous opponent in Kaia Kanepi. Vondrousova is not the easiest of opponents and is a solid all-court player, but she is most comfortable on clay (reached the French Open final in 2019, for example). I expect Kudermetova to win and cover.
