Bautista Agut – Marterer tip Wimbledon 01.07.2024

Wimbledon 2024, 1st round, Monday, 01.07.2024

It’s one of Europe’s most prestigious sporting events, and the 2024 edition is finally upon us! There are a number of German starters at Wimbledon, all of whom are aiming to make it past the first round.

The world number 85 goes into his opening match as the underdog. Even though his opponent is ranked lower. Why is that and why do I expect more than 3.5 sets here? I’ll tell you now in my Bautista Agut Marterer tip!

First reached the second round as a qualifier, then even played his way into round 3, also via the qualifying route – is it time for another improvement?

Maximilian Marterer was visibly convincing at Wimbledon last year, only Alexander Bublik was the last stop. Of course, the 29-year-old would love to repeat this result.

But there is one difference even before his first match: this time he doesn’t have to go through the arduous qualifying process. As the world number 85, he is seeded in the main draw and will definitely have to improve on his performance in the grass court preparation.

After having to return home after the 2nd round in Paris, he lost to Henry Squire in his second match in Heilbronn. It was on to Stuttgart, and Marterer was unable to show his best side there either

The match ended right at the start, Matteo Martineau from France was not really a strong opponent. Mallorca? He made it through the qualifying round before Paul Jubb thrashed him 6-1, 6-2.

The Nuremberg player’s self-confidence must have taken a bit of a knock. How many matches has Marterer won this year in relation to the main draw?

Three! Really not a lot, so in my opinion it’s not surprising that he will be the underdog on Monday. And this despite the fact that his opponent is only ranked 112th in the world


Roberto Bautista Agut is his name, and of course everyone knows what this man has already achieved in his career. He is now 36 years old and can go into the match in round 1 as the favorite despite his fall in the rankings.

The odds of our betting providers show an average of 1.25 to 3.75. Will Bautista Agut and Marterer also talk about soccer? After all, their nations are playing each other in the European Championship quarter-finals!

However, neither of them will probably have much time to follow the bigger ball in London, as the one who remains in the tournament has other goals. Bautista Agut has been at Wimbledon since 2010, and the semi-final in 2019 is his best result.

But he also knows exactly how to make a fool of himself in the English capital. A year ago, he lost directly in round 1 to Roman Safiullin, something that must not happen to him again

The veteran had packed his bags right after the first match at the French Open and played a number of preparatory tournaments on grass. Unfortunately, his success was extremely limited.

In Hertogenbosch, he lost to Milos Raonic and a little later in Halle, Bautista Agut didn’t even make it through qualifying. He only slowly emerged from his slump on Mallorca.

In the end, he lost in three sets to Gael Monfils. Only two matches on grass out of a total of seven had neither a tiebreak nor a third set, so close results are by no means a rarity

My Bautista Agut Marterer tip

Roberto Bautista Agut doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone in London. In the late fall of his career, he wants to get back into the top 100, his preparation matches were not very successful overall.

On the other side is Maximilian Marterer, a German starter who can look back on a completely disastrous first six months. Wins are in short supply. But: Bautista Agut is also miles behind his best form.

I would therefore opt for a relatively close result in this pairing. And so I recommend the following bet:

Three sets are not enough here!
