Wimbledon Tennis Odds
Grass court tournaments are few and far between on the annual tennis calendar and this is one of the reasons that winning Wimbledon has such a great appeal and is regarded as the world’s premier tennis tournament. Although Wimbledon tennis odds are available virtually all year, the tournament only takes place for two weeks towards the end of June and the start of July, with the UK’s unpredictable weather only adding to the overall spectacle.
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal odds the best to consider at Wimbledon
Some 128 men are assigned a spot in the men’s first round draw, with all matches played over the best of five sets. Focusing on Roger Federer in the Wimbledon odds would have been a prudent strategy in recent years as he made seven successive finals between 2003 and 2009, winning on six of these occasions. However, Federer remains one short of matching the Wimbledon record owned by Pete Sampras of seven tournament victories.
Rafael Nadal has inflicted the one major blip on Federer’s record when triumphing 9-7 in an epic fifth set in 2008 and he has since added a second Wimbledon victory to his resume in 2010 when beating Tomas Berdych in the final. Both Federer and Nadal are expected to be popular in the Wimbledon tennis odds this year, along with defending champion Novak Djokovic and British hope Andy Murray as he goes in search of a first Grand Slam title.
Maria Sharapova could shine in Wimbledon tennis odds
The women’s game does not have the dominant force of a Djokovic or a Nadal and therefore provides much more competition when it comes to Wimbledon tennis odds. Maria Sharapova is among the most followed players on the women’s circuit and it would be well applauded if she could repeat her Wimbledon win of 2004 and avenge her defeat in the final last year to Petra Kvitova. Caroline Wozniacki will want a first Grand Slam victory, while Venus and Serena Williams must be considered threats if they decide to play at Wimbledon.
