The second round of Wimbledon wraps up today in SW19. Plenty of big names will be in action, including Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and the women’s number one Simona Halep.

Nadal cruised to a straight-sets win over Dudi Sela in his opening match. He’s 1/16 to dispatch Mikhail Kukushkin next. The world no. 77 is a 9/1 shot.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the Kazakhstani player did take a set off Nadal when they met on Centre Court four years ago. It’s 10/3 that Nadal wins 1-3.

Djokovic will be looking to step up his resurgence against Horacio Zeballos. He’s still not quite at his best, but he didn’t need to be in his opener against Tennys Sandgren.

We can’t see beyond a 1/50 Djokovic win here. Zeballos is all the way out at 14/1.

Alexander Zverev is the golden boy of the men’s tour right now. It wasn’t that long ago that people were just as excited about Taylor Fritz. But Zverev has shot up to third in the ATP rankings, while Fritz is back at 69.

The German is 1/7 to beat Fritz, who we’ve got at 9/2.

Over in the women’s draw, Johanna Konta will be looking to make it three wins in a row over Dominika Cibulkova.

Konta is 4/11 favourite to get the win in front of the home crowd. Cibulkova has reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals twice. She can’t be counted out at 9/4.

Muguruza continues her title defence against Alison Van Uytvanck. You can back the former world number one to progress at 2/9, with Van Uytvanck available at 10/3.

After losing three Grand Slam finals, including last year’s Wimbledon, Simona Halep finally went all the way in this year’s French Open. She’s got all the talent. Now she’s made it over that last hurdle.

Halep shouldn’t have any issues against Saisai Zheng. She’s 1/14 favourite and her opponent is rated 7/1.
