Wimbledon odds: Ten contenders at the All England Club

The world's greatest Grand Slam takes place at the start of July and BetStars will be with you every step of the way with the latest Wimbledon odds.

Last year, Novak Djokovic claimed his fourth Wimbledon title with a straight-sets victory over Kevin Anderson but the real drama came in the semi-finals when the Serb defeated Rafael Nadal 10-8 in the deciding set after Anderson had won an epic duel with John Isner.

Djokovic is the hot favourite in the Wimbledon men's odds to retain his title, but Roger Federer is not far behind to win the trophy for a ninth time.

BetStars have the Wimbledon betting odds for both men and women, plus we'll have odds on every match for the whole of the tournament once the draw has been made.

Below we assess the leading 10 contenders to win the men's singles title.

Novak Djokovic

Odds: 6/4
Age: 32
Grand Slam titles: 15
Wimbledon titles: 4

Djokovic ended his season midway through 2017 because of an elbow injury but his return as the world's best player has been remarkable.

The Serb started to run through the gears by reaching the final at Queen's which he followed by winning Wimbledon, the US Open and Australian Open with Masters 1000 titles in Cincinnati and Shanghai thrown in for good measure.

Djokovic had the chance to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time earlier this month but lost to Dominic Thiem in the semi-finals of the French Open.

Chances: No-one came near to Djokovic's level in the second half of the year and if he maintains the same form his opponents may as well go home.

Roger Federer

Odds: 10/3
Age: 37
Grand Slam titles: 20
Wimbledon titles: 8

Federer simply is Wimbledon having won the tournament eight times during a glittering career and he will have most of the crowd on his side to land a ninth in what could turn out to be his final appearance at the All England Club.

Last year, the Swiss broke Centre Court hearts by throwing away a 2-0 lead and match point in the third set against Kevin Anderson, going on to lose 13-11 in the decider after four hours and 13 minutes of a gripping quarter-final.

Will be approaching 38 at the time of the tournament, but is still second favourite in the Wimbledon odds for the men's singles.

Chances: The way Federer capitulated against Anderson was worrying but should still be in with a shout.

Rafael Nadal

Odds: 11/2
Age: 33
Grand Slam titles: 18
Wimbledon titles: 2

Nadal had some heartache of his own in 2018 after spending five hours and 16 minutes fruitlessly trying to get past Djokovic without success.

More misery was to follow in January when he was destroyed by the Serb in the final of the Australian Open where he used a modified serve, but that was all forgotten this month when he won the French Open title for a 12th time and is now just two Grand Slam titles behind Federer.

Chances: As long as he can stay injury free, Nadal will surely be one of the contenders in the Wimbledon betting to add to his successes from 2008 and 2010.

Alexander Zverev

Odds: 11/1
Age: 22
Grand Slam titles: 0
Wimbledon titles: 0

Zverev is still falling short in the Grand Slams despite his meteoric rise in the world rankings, so could do with a decent performance at Wimbledon.

The German finished the year on a high by winning the end-of-season ATP Finals and ended a poor run of form in 2019 by winning the Geneva Open which he followed by reaching the French Open quarter-finals for the second year in a row, his second appearance at that stage of a Grand Slam in 16 attempts.

Last year, Zverev led 2-1 in the third round but took just three games in the final two sets in a surprising defeat by Ernests Gulbis.

Chances: Is fourth favourite in the Wimbledon odds, but must start producing the goods on the big occasion.

Marin Cilic

Odds: 11/1
Age: 30
Grand Slam titles: 1
Wimbledon titles: 0

As third seed, Cilic was around 14/1 in the Wimbledon betting odds at the start of last year's tournament and is slightly shorter this time despite wasting a two-set lead against Guido Pella in a shock second-round exit.

The Croatian reached the final in 2017 but was hampered by a severe blister which left him in tears during the second set.

Runner-up at the 2018 Australian Open and a quarter-finalist at both the French and US Opens ensured a successful year for Cilic, who won the title at Queen's for the second time, but his form in 2019 has been concerning and unless there is a dramatic improvement an early exit looms.

Chances: Must improve if he is to boost his chances of a fifth quarter-final appearance in the last six years.

Andy Murray

Odds: 14/1
Age: 32
Grand Slam titles: 3
Wimbledon titles: 2

Two-time champion Murray will almost certainly not be fit enough to compete at Wimbledon but there won't be a dry eye in the house should he make it to Centre Court for what could be a final time.

The Scot revealed after his Australian Open defeat to Roberto Bautista Agut that he would retire this year, hopefully after Wimbledon, but it was possible that he had played his last match.

However, Murray soon underwent hip resurfacing surgery which may help to prolong his career, and recently revealed he hopes to return to singles action before the end of the year although he is unlikely to feature before the US Open in August.

Chances: Murray has next to no chance of making it to Wimbledon, so punters would be advised to look elsewhere in the Wimbledon odds.

Milos Raonic

Odds: 16/1
Age: 28
Grand Slam titles: 0
Wimbledon titles: 0

Raonic has reached at least the quarter-finals in the three previous years and was runner-up to Murray in 2016 when he lost in straight sets.

The big-serving Canadian was born to play on grass but a series of injuries have halted his progress over the last couple of years and he missed this year's French Open with a knee problem.

A quarter-finalist in Melbourne, Raonic will be hoping to go deep into the tournament and at 16/1 in the Wimbledon odds is decent value.

Chances: The two things holding back Raonic from a first Grand Slam are his fitness and his returns. If he can improve in those areas he stands a chance.

Juan Martin del Potro

Odds: 16/1
Age: 30
Grand Slam titles: 1
Wimbledon titles: 0

The Argentinian had his best year since 2009 last year when he was runner-up at the US Open and reached the semi-finals and last eight at the French Open and Wimbledon respectively.

His success was a far cry from the dark days of wrist surgery between 2014-15 when it looked like he may have to retire.

Unfortunately, a knee injury forced him to miss the ATP Finals and the Australian Open, and his appearance at Delray Beach in February proved to be a false dawn.

Del Potro returned in earnest in May, reaching the quarter-finals in Rome and the fourth round of the French Open.

Chances: If he gets back to full fitness could be a contender, but wait until he has a few matches under his belt.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Odds: 20/1
Age: 20
Grand Slam titles: 0
Wimbledon titles: 0

Stunned the world of tennis by defeating Federer in the fourth round of the Australian Open before losing heavily to Nadal in the semi-finals.

The Greek prodigy is regarded as the next big thing having won the NextGen Finals and becoming the youngest player to beat four top-10 players at a single tournament which he achieved at the Rogers Cup.

Tsitsipas had a superb clay-court season, winning a title in Estoril, finishing runner-up in Madrid and reaching round four at the French Open, but he fell at the first hurdle on his Wimbledon debut last year so it remains to be seen how well he can adapt to grass.

Chances: Very talented but very young so expect the rewards to come in a few years' time.

Kevin Anderson

Odds: 25/1
Age: 33
Grand Slam titles: 0
Wimbledon titles: 0

Anderson has proved to be a late bloomer after reaching his second Grand Slam final at last year's Wimbledon having been runner-up at the US Open in 2017.

The South African has a big serve and a big heart as he proved in his sensational comeback win against Federer but more drama was to follow as he beat Isner 26-24 in the final set in a six-and-a-half-hour semi-final - the second longest match in Wimbledon history.

However, Anderson missed the whole of the clay-court season with an elbow injury and at the time of writing has not played since Miami in March.

Chances: Has the serve and consistency to do well once again but suspect the big guns will need to be eliminated for him to stand a chance of a first Grand Slam and his elbow is clearly a concern.
