The number 8 seed, Kevin Anderson is one of the best tennis players that South Africa has ever produced. The 4 time ATP winner has never won a grand slam but he is looking very confident at Wimbledon this year. Anderson has made it to the third round where he will take on German player, Philipp Kohlschreiber. This is a game between two top-level tennis players so we should be able to witness a high-level tennis match.
Philipp Kohlschreiber is the 25th seed at Wimbledon. The German is one of the most experienced players on the tour and has been on the professional circuit since 2001. The right-handed tennis player has won multiple singles titles at ATP level but has never had a massive impact on a grand slam and he will be desperate to change that. Philipp Kohlschreiber has looked very good in this tournament as the German is yet to lose a set. That being said, this will be a big test for Philipp Kohlschreiber since he has not come up against a top level player like Kevin Anderson yet in this tournament.
On the other side of the court, Kevin Anderson looks like a determined tennis player. This seems like the perfect time the South African can win a grand slam and he looks very hungry. Kevin Anderson was dominant in his first two games and he will be desperate to continue this form as he heads into this third round match. It has not been the best few months for Kevin Anderson as he has underperformed by his standards. That being said, he is still looking in really good form and I think he will be confident that he can win this match and have a really long run at Wimbledon.
All in all, I am going to predict that Kevin Anderson wins this match. The South African is the better player and seems more hungry to win. While Philipp Kohlschreiber has been playing well, I think Kevin Anderson will be way too strong. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a great price to wager on Kevin Anderson to win so that seems like the best bet.
