Our favourite Jannik Sinner vs Ben Shelton predictions

Both of these men have been tested on their way to the fourth round of Wimbledon 2024. At the same time, they’ve both relied on big serving and huge groundstrokes to make it this far. However, this will be the end of the line for one of them.

So, will Sinner or Shelton march on, and which markets should you cover? Let me give you my thoughts now.

Shelton to win a set – yes @ 1/1 (2.00)

Shelton is no schmuck on the grass. In fact, he’s no pushover on any surface these days. With a monstrous serve and a deadly forehand, these fast surfaces definitely suit his game. And because he’s beaten Sinner in the past, I believe he will snag at least a set from the world number one.

Shelton +6.5 games handicap @ 8/13 (1.62)

If Shelton does bring his A-game against Jannik Sinner, I think this market has a real shot of coming through. Additionally, there have been plenty of tie-breaks in their previous three matches, which helps to push Shelton’s chances of landing this handicap higher.

Jannik Sinner vs Ben Shelton odds

As expected, Sinner is the heavy favourite here, with a 92.30% chance of winning. But for Shelton, the latest odds give him just a 12.50% probability of taking out the top seed.

Warning: power tennis up ahead in Sinner vs Shelton showdown

Shifting gears now, let’s look at a quick preview for each player.

Jannik Sinner preview

Sinner is firmly at the top of the men’s game right now. The man seems unstoppable at times, yet he has dropped a couple of sets en route to the 4th round. Then again, he’s faced tough opponents, and this may have helped him sharpen up ahead of this battle. Additionally, he’s beaten Shelton the last two times they’ve played, which will give him confidence.

Ben Shelton preview

I don’t know how Ben Shelton is still standing after his efforts to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon this year. The young American has pulled through in three straight five-set battles, which is just a monumental effort. Of course, this will have taken its toll on Shelton physically. So, there are questions concerning what he has left in the tank to challenge Sinner on Sunday.

Sinner vs Shelton head to head

Sinner and Shelton have faced off three times in their professional careers. It’s Sinner who has come out on top in their last two meetings, however, putting the head-to-head at 2-1 in favour of the Italian. But it’s always been tight between these two, so this is certainly a match worth watching!
