Wednesday is going to see the men battling it out for a place in the Wimbledon 2015 semi-finals, an achievement that all of them would proudly add to their resumes. Will there be any tight matches or are the favourites going to win easily? Well, we'll see about that - here are our selections!

Richard Gasquet has been very impressive so far, but one gets the feeling that both Kyrgios and Dimitrov could've put up a bit more resistance on a better day, so it isn't all that easy to trust the Frenchman against Stanislas Wawrinka, who's yet to drop a set in this year's Wimbledon and who seems unfazed by the fact that he could win back-to-back Grand Slams. He's definitely better than Gasquet and he also definitely has the better nerves of the two, so we'll back him to cover the 3.5 games handicap with Paddy Power.

Andy Murray also seems to be gearing up for a big finish, so we can't see past him in his match against the surprise package of the tournament, Vasek Pospisil. The long matches he's had to play in both the singles and the doubles must've left their mark on the Canadian and Murray will be a massive step up from the likes of Ward and Troicki, so we fancy Murray to cover the 7.5 games handicap, which is priced at 1.70 with Betway.

Roger Federer hasn't dropped a serve yet and he's obviously expected to beat Gilles Simon with plenty to spare, but the H2H record between the two suggests that he won't have it all that easy and we indeed think that the bookies are overrating him a bit at the moment. Simon is a formidable opponent and he'll fight hard for every single point, so we'll back the Over 33.5 games line at 1.72 with Bet365.

Finally, we'll have Marin Cilic going against Novak Djokovic in what promises to be another one-sided encounter, with Cilic having an awful record against the Serb and being in no form to challenge him at the moment. His serve will hold him in for a set, but not more, so we'll take Djokovic to win by seven or more games at Unibet.
