Wimbledon Tennis Betting
Since World War II, Britain have never even had a representative in the men’s singles final at Wimbledon, let alone a winner, but patriotic punters will be hoping that Andy Murray is close to changing this miserable barren streak. Fred Perry was the last British men’s Wimbledon winner in 1936, but Murray has been knocking on the door in recent years and certainly has the credentials to be a force in the Wimbledon tennis odds if at his best.
However, if Andy Murray odds are to be successful in his home Grand Slam, he will have his hands full with some other top players on the men’s circuit. Novak Djokovic is the favourite in the men’s Wimbledon tennis betting as he returns as defending champion, while Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will be keen to regain their former titles.
Serena Williams heads the women’s Wimbledon tennis betting
There are arguably a dozen players that could win the women’s Wimbledon title. Serena Williams has tended to enjoy the grass courts at SW19 in the past, but her lack of recent tennis may leave her short of match practice. Petra Kvitova returns as the defending champion and could make a successful defence, while the likes of Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka are others likely to be in contention in the latter stages.
Not just tournament winner markets in Wimbledon tennis betting
There are numerous Wimbledon tennis betting opportunities open to punters over the two weeks of the Grand Slam. Match betting is the next obvious market and may be lucrative to those fancying an upset. Meanwhile, set betting on each match will offer punters better value and offers a bigger incentive to back a heavy favourite to win a respective encounter.
