SkySports tennis commentator James Buttler looks at Wednesday's quarter-final action and picks his Wimbledon winners.

We're at the quarter-final stage, four matches throughout the day at SW19 on Wednesday as the semi-final line-up is resolved.

PICK 1: Jelena Ostapenko is taking on Barbora Krejcikova. Ostapenko leads the H2H count 6-2, but there's something about Krejcikova this fortnight that's not only won us money, but she's also been seriously impressive along the way. Ostapenko won their last three meetings, including in straights on the grass of Birmingham last year. I think Ostapenko can get down on herself too early in matches, and Krejcikova has a real chance of winning this one. I'm not brave enough to oppose Ostapenko on the outrights, but I think this will be a three-setter either way, and that's 7/5.

PICK 2: Elena Rybakina is my pick to beat Elina Svitolina, and there's two reasons. I think she wins this Wimbledon and that's probably good enough in itself, but Svitolina might be emotionally spent. After the appalling bombings in her homeland of Ukraine, she was visibly upset after her R16 win, and it's a heavy load carrying the 'I'm-doing-it-for-my-people' burden. Svitolina is doing an incredible job for her country off the court, but I think Rybakina wins this match on it. She's 10/29, but I'm taking her in straight sets at 19/20.

PICK 3: I'm adding in the big-serving American Taylor Fritz at 3/13 to beat Lorenzo Musetti. I think that's a fairly straightforward pick.

PICK 4: And finally, I've been really impressed with the 25-year-old Aussie Alex De Minaur.

He has a game that might stretch Novak Djokovic, and I don't think it will be a comfortable ride for the rather prickly Serb. The Aussie also has a name made to unsettle Novak, "Diminoooooooor". You can imagine it, can't you? Novak's brow furrowing as he hears that from the stands. I think Novak wins, but I'm taking the Aussie to snatch a set along the way.

3-1 Djokovic is 14/5.

If you prefer to take Novak to win, that makes the fourfold 6.51/1. If you, like me, think it's going to be 3-1 in sets to Djokovic, the fourfold is worth 18.46/1.

Good luck with all of your bets at Wimbledon on Wednesday, gamble responsibly, and I will see you ahead of Thursday's action.
