As you may already know, Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam event where players still compete on grass. Adding to this, Wimbledon is also the oldest of all four majors with the first edition taking place in 1877.  The 2017 Wimbledon championships begin July 3 and run through July 16 with with 128 women and 128 men battling for the two singles titles. Let’s take a look at the main contenders’ odds.

 

Men’s Competition 

Despite his recent disappointing defeat against Tommy Haas at the Mercedes Cup opening round after skipping the French Open, seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer remains the co-favorite to win the title at +275 at Bet365.  

The local favorite, Andy Murray, is looking for his 3rd career title in Wimbledon. After lifting the trophy in 2016, Murray is also one of the main contenders to win the 2017 edition with Coral offering also +275 for his triumph in London. 

Rafael Nadal’s outright odds suffered a massive drop after his phenomenal campaign in Roland Garros. Despite his lack of success in recent years in Wimbledon, Nadal is a two-time champion and always a player to keep an eye on majors. William Hill offers one of the best prices in the market for Nadal’s victory in Wimbledon at +500. 

On the other hand, Novak Djokovic’s price continues to increase after another poor performance in Paris. The three-time Wimbledon champion is available at +600 at Bet365, which is one of the highest prices for the Serbian to win this event in recent years.

Women’s Competition 

Due to Serena Williams' and Maria Sharapova’s absence, the competition looks wide open. After Jelena Ostapenko’s victory in Roland Garros, it wouldn’t be surprising to have another new Grand Slam champion in Wimbledon.  

Known as one of the best servers in tennis, Karolina Pliskova is always a fearful opponent on grass. Despite her terrible 4-5 record at Wimbledon, Pliskova is the main favorite to leave London with the title at +600 at Bet365. 

Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is trying to return to her best level after missing the first months of the season due to injury. Nevertheless, the sportsbooks are well aware of Petra’s quality on grass with William Hill offering +900 for Kvitova to lift the trophy at Wimbledon. 

World No. 8 Johanna Konta is trying to become the first British women to win this event since Virginia Wade in 1977. Due to her brilliant results in 2017, Konta is one of the main contenders to win Wimbledon at +1000 at Pinnacle. 

Playing on the big stages brings the best out of Garbine Muguruza with an outstanding 45-19 career record in majors. For that reason, it’s not surprising that Muguruza is one of the main contenders to win the Wimbledon at +1000 at William Hill. 

Former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka already announced that she’ll play in Wimbledon. Despite her long absence due to pregnancy, it won’t be easy for anyone to defeat the two-time Grand Slam champion with William Hill offering +1200 for her victory.
