We’ve had great success with our tennis betting tips this year and are confident we can bring you some more winning plays as we preview Wimbledon! We’ll be focussing on the men’s draw in this article but will have our women’s preview for you very shortly.
Wimbledon is the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world. It’s been played on the outdoor grass courts at the All England Club in London since 1877. The most successful man in the tournament’s history is current number two seed Roger Federer. The Swiss champion has won the title eight times, although the current champion is world number one, Novak Djokovic.
Like all Grand Slam events there are 32 seeded players in both the men’s and the women’s section at Wimbledon. Unlike the other Grand Slams however, Wimbledon decide their seeds with a unique formula that is not solely based on ranking points accumulated over the past 12 months.
Below is a list of the top eight seeded men at this year’s Wimbledon.
(1) Novak Djokovic
(2) Roger Federer
(3) Rafael Nadal
(4) Kevin Anderson
(5) Dominic Thiem
(6) Alexander Zverev
(7) Stefanos Tsitsipas
(8) Kei Nishikori
The seedings represent the favourites fairly well this year. Novak Djokovic is the short-priced favourite at $2.35, while Roger Federer is next in line at $4, then you get out to Rafael Nadal ($8) as the only other single figure quote.
Novak Djokovic – He’s the current world number one and reigning Wimbledon champion. Oh, and he’s the reigning US Open and Australian Open champion, too. The Joker wasn’t at his absolute best recently at the French Open where he was knocked out by Dominic Thiem in the semi-finals, although the clay is definitely his least favourite surface. He hasn’t played much on grass this year but rarely struggles with the clay-to-grass transition.
Roger Federer – His return to the clay was a success and should have him in good stead to make a deep run in his favourite tournament, Wimbledon. Federer is the eight-time champion here and was in good touch in the lead-up tournaments. He also gets a pretty kind draw as the second seed.
Rafael Nadal – He was at his best in Paris yet again to claim his 12thcareer French Open title… which is absolutely outrageous to say the least. However, he’s onlywon Wimbledon twice in his illustrious career with the last time being back in 2010. His form on grass hasn’t been great in recent times, which is why he’s near double-figure odds to clinch his third Wimbledon title.
We’ve picked the $2-3 favourite in both men’s Grand Slams this year and are going to do it for a third time by siding with Djokovic to win Wimbledon. He’s clearly the best in the world when the surface is anything but clay, which makes this pick a no-brainer. Don’t overthink this one, the ‘Joker’ is the man to beat.
The other market we’re really keen on is ‘Quarter 3 Winner’ at Sportsbet. It’s an extremely deep and talented quarter that’s led by world number 2, Rafael Nadal. He’s the $2.63 to advance into the semi-finals, but we’re actually keen on fading him. He had a huge clay court season as per usual and topped it off by winning the French Open, but he’s really struggled on grass in recent years and has been dealt what many are calling the ‘draw of death’ at Wimbledon. If he’s not going to make it through, then who is? Our pick is Marin Cilic. He’s obviously had a poor season to date and has dropped to #19 in the world as a result, however, he’s an experienced grass court player that’s won Wimbledon in the past and has been to at least the quarter-finals there in four of the past five years. If you’re a value play type of person, then this is the one to get on.
