We're at the quarterfinal stage, four matches throughout the day at SW19 on Tuesday.

PICK 1: Let's start off with Jannik Sinner, the no.1 seed. He takes on Daniil Medvedev. Medvedev will be rested after the unfortunate retirement of Dimitrov in the previous round. Sinner was superb as he shot through in straights against Shelton, the big-serving American youngster. Sinner was described by none other than Nick Kyrgios as a "safe bet" on the TV coverage today. Who am I to argue with the big Aussie? I do agree, Medvedev leads 6-5 on the head-to-heads, but Sinner has won the last five times they've met across the net. They've never met on grass. Just take Sinner, 4/17 to win.

PICK 2: Carlos Alcaraz takes on Tommy Paul. Alcaraz hasn't totally convinced me yet at Wimbledon. Tommy Paul is fresh from lifting the trophy at Queen's in the run-up to the tournament, I've tipped Paul as an outsider in the pre-tournament piece, but I also tipped Alcaraz as a potential finalist, so something's got to give here. I don't think this is plain sailing for Alcaraz, so I'm playing over 3.5 sets at 4/6. Paul is definitely good enough to bag at least one set.

PICK 3: Into the women's, Jasmine Paolini, the Italian, taking on Emma Navarro. Paolini is a plucky Italian and French Open finalist this season, but Navarro has a 3-0 H2H advantage going into this quarterfinal. Navarro brings exceptional grass-court form into this tournament and took out the fancied Coco Gauff, the American, in straight sets in the last round. Navarro is 8/15 favourite, and I think she wins, but I also think Paolini can take a set off her. So, Navarro to go through by 2-1 is 16/5.

PICK 4?: The final match, Lulu Sun against Donna Vekic. This is a tough one to call. I actually quite fancy Sun here. She was absolutely outstanding against Emma Raducanu in the previous round. Vekic starts as favourite. Sun is a tempting 23/10.

On the basis, I can't quite make my mind up on the Vekic vs Sun quarter, if you put in the other three picks, that gets you a 6.51/1 treble. If you add Lulu Sun into the equation and make it a fourfold, it's 23.57/1.

Enjoy Tuesday at Wimbledon and I'll be back ahead of Wednesday.
