2023 Wimbledon Men’s First Round Matchups

Liam Broady vs. Constant Lestienne

Favorite Liam Broady heads to the first round playing decent tennis. Broady, a Great Britain citizen, won his first match at the Rothesay International, beating Jan Choinski. Mikael Ymer ended Broady’s Rothesay run in the second round.

Constant Lestienne also lost his second round match at the Rothesay. Arthur Kinderknech beat Lestienne in the slight underdog’s last. In his first round match, Lestienne got by Jason Kubler. Broady has the advantage but Lestienne offers enough of a higher line to warrant backing.

2023 Wimbledon First Round Pick: Constant Lestienne +110

Alexander Vukic vs. Daniel Altmaier

Underdog Alexander Vukic qualified for the Rothesay International and then upset Brandon Nakashima in his first round match. But in the second round, Vukic fell to 8-seed Miomir Kecmanovic in 2 sets and a tiebreaker.

Daniel Altmaier tried to qualify for the Terra Wortmann Open in his last. Daniel got as far as the final qualifying round. Vukic is worthing backing at the odds.

2023 Wimbledon First Round Pick: Alexander Vukic +117

Jordan Thompson vs. Brandon Nakashima

At the Mallorca Championship in his last, Thompson played well in the first round. Jordan beat Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-4. It’s the second round where Thompson struggled, losing to Feliciano Lopez.

Brandon Nakashima didn’t move past the first round at the Rothesay International. Ah, but it took Aleksander Vukic 3 sets and 3 tiebreakers to knock out Nakashima. Back the -114 choice to cash.

Mikael Ymer vs. Alex Molcan

Slovakian Alex Molcan has had a decent ATP Season. Molcan is 12-12. In his last, the underdog in this beat Hugo Gaston before falling to Alexander Zverev in straight sets at the French Open.

Lloyd Harris vs. Gregoire Barrere

Gregoire Barrere is still playing at the Rothesay International. Barrere has a matchup with Tommy Paul in the Rothesay semis on June 30. Wether Gregoire wins or loses, he’s the pick to take this.

Benjamin Bonzi vs. Harold Mayot

Mayot had to qualify for Wimbledon, which is why he’s the slight underdog. Mayot qualified by beating Geoffrey Blancaneaux, James Duckworth, and Matteo Gigante.

Benjamin Bonzi lost his last match, a first round battle at the Terra Wortmann Open. Still, Bonzi is the play because he’s 12-10 in singles matches this season. The chalk gets the nod.
