Wimbledon 1st round: Mayer v Tursunov

D Tursunov @ 2.62 to beat F Mayer - Big price for the Russian here. He has reached the 4th round here before and has other grass court form that makes him a contender in this match. His ranking of 128 does not reflect Tursunov's ability. The Russian has wins over Ljubicic, Henman, Almagro, Safin, Mahut & Gulbis at Wimbledon.

Mayer has reached the QF at Wimbledon back in 2004 and there is no doubt he can play on grass with wins over Ferreira, Cilic and Fish on the surface. He played well in Halle against Federer just a few weeks ago too. Last year he struggled against Brit Dan Evans before losing to Malisse in the 2nd round.

Neither play is in great form and have had their injury problems. I think Mayers odds are too short and think Tursunov can make it difficult for the German
