Wimbledon Tennis Odds - Ten contenders to win

Take a swing at the latest betting odds and markets for the Wimbledon Tennis Grand Slam Tournament here at BetStars.

Wimbledon is the highlight of the grass-court season and takes place in the first two weeks of July at the All England Club.

Roger Federer will be a month away from turning 37 at the start of the tournament and heads to SW19 as both defending champion and favourite to win Wimbledon for a ninth time, which would be two more than his nearest rival Pete Sampras.

If you enjoy tennis betting, take a look at our guide to the top 10 men's singles contenders to win the third grand slam of the year and check out the Wimbledon odds for each player.

Roger Federer

Roger Federer to win Wimbledon @ 7/4

Wimbledon odds: 7/4

Appearances: 19

Grand Slam titles: 20

Last five years at Wimbledon: W-SF-F-F-R2

Federer heads to his favourite tournament holding a record 20 Grand Slam titles, four more than his nearest rival Rafael Nadal whom he met in the Wimbledon final for three years in a row from 2006 to 2008.

Last year, the Swiss became the first man to win the tournament without dropping a set since Bjorn Borg in 1976, a remarkable achievement for a player supposedly in the twilight of his career.

For those who thought the Wimbledon tennis hero would rest on his laurels, he got the year off to a blistering start by successfully defending his Australian Open title in an epic five-setter against Marin Cilic, the man he defeated in last year's Wimbledon final. Still the man to beat in July as long as he is in peak condition.

Andy Murray

Andy Murray to win Wimbledon @ 9/2

Wimbledon odds: 9/2

Appearances: 12

Grand Slam titles: 3

Last five years at Wimbledon: QF-W-SF-QF-W

Murray faces a monumental task to win Wimbledon for the third time after undergoing hip surgery in Melbourne at the turn of the year.

The former world number one's last competitive match came at Wimbledon last year when he was knocked out by Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals.

Murray still hopes to be fit in time, but his recovery has been much more protracted and complicated than when he underwent a back operation five years ago.

If the 30-year-old Scot can compete in a couple of ATP Tour events before the start of Wimbledon he stands a chance, but hopes of another British success this year look bleak.

Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic to win Wimbledon @ 11/2

Wimbledon odds: 11/2

Appearances: 13

Grand Slam titles: 12

Last five years at Wimbledon: QF-R3-W-W-F

Three-time champion Djokovic, like Murray, has struggled to make a competitive return to the main tour after undergoing surgery at the start of the year.

The Serb required an operation on his right elbow in January and admitted he returned too soon following first-round defeats at Indian Wells and the Miami Open.

If fit, Djokovic would be one of the leading contenders to repeat his triumphs of 2011, 2014 and 2015, but he has yet to make an impact in 2018 and admits his confidence is low. Unless there is a major improvement in performances in the build-up to the tournament, Djokovic will do well to make it to the second week.

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon @ 6/1

Wimbledon odds: 6/1

Appearances: 12

Grand Slam titles: 16

Last five years at Wimbledon: R4-DNP-R2-R4-R1

Nadal's Wimbledon results have been disappointing in the last few years, failing to reach the quarter-finals in his last six appearances.

Last year, Nadal lost one of the best Wimbledon matches in an epic fourth-round encounter with veteran Gilles Muller who took the final set 15-13 on Court One.

The 16-time Grand Slam winner struggled with knee and hip injuries around the turn of the year, but all the signs point towards a successful 2018 for the Spaniard.

Tennis betting odds of 6/1 could be a decent price if Murray and Djokovic fail to make it to the starting line or are not at 100% to launch a title bid.

Alexander Zverev

Alexander Zverev to win Wimbledon @ 12/1

Wimbledon odds: 12/1

Appearances: 3

Grand Slam titles: 0

Last five years at Wimbledon: R4-R3-R2-DNP-DNP

With tennis odds of 12/1, Zverev is fourth favourite to win Wimbledon this year despite never having reached a Grand Slam quarter-final in his fledgling career at the time of writing.

The German has been making steady progress at Wimbledon since making his debut in 2015 and last year made it to the second week for the first time but lost in five sets to big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic in the round of 16.

Won five titles last year, but none were on grass although his performance against Raonic suggested he can compete on the sport's fastest surface. Quarter-finals would be a great return for the German.

Really want to know what I was paying so much attention to

Milos Raonic

Milos Raonic to win Wimbledon @ 12/1

Wimbledon odds: 12/1

Appearances: 7

Grand Slam titles: 0

Last five years at Wimbledon: QF-F-R3-SF-R2

The Canadian has an excellent Wimbledon pedigree, reaching the final in 2016 which he lost in straight sets to Murray, and last year he was knocked out in the last eight by eventual champion Federer.

Wrist surgery, a torn hamstring and finally a calf injury curtailed his 2017 season, but Raonic made an encouraging start with a semi-final appearance at Indian Wells and then reached the last eight in Miami. Injury then struck again and he was forced to withdraw from his third-round match against Cilic in Monte Carlo with a knee injury.

If he can stay fit he could be a real threat at SW19, but injuries are blighting a player who was born to play on this surface.

Marin Cilic

Marin Cilic to win Wimbledon @ 14/1

Wimbledon odds: 14/1

Appearances: 11

Grand Slam titles: 1

Last five years at Wimbledon: F-QF-QF-QF-R2

It took Cilic eight years to get into the swing of playing at Wimbledon, but since 2014 the Croatian has been an ever present in the last eight and if you like a bet on tennis he could be the man to spring a surprise at decent odds.

Last year the 2014 US Open champion was reduced to tears as a burst blister cost him the chance of beating Roger Federer in the final. The two men then met again in a much closer match in the 2018 Australian Open final which the Swiss took 6-1 in a final-set decider.

Cilic married his long-time girlfriend in May and winning Wimbledon would certainly make it a year to remember. Could be one of our tennis betting tips if he gets a kind draw and avoids Federer.

Grigor Dimitrov

Grigor Dimitrov to win Wimbledon @ 14/1

Wimbledon odds: 14/1

Appearances: 8

Grand Slam titles: 0

Last five years at Wimbledon: R4-R3-R3-SF-R2

Wimbledon has not been particularly kind to the Bulgarian who won the biggest title of his career at the end-of-season ATP Tour Finals in November to crown an excellent year.

Dimitrov will be making his ninth appearance at the championships where he has made the second week only twice. His best performance came in 2014, the same year he won his only grass-court title at Queen's Club, when he reached the semi-finals but lost in four sets to eventual champion Djokovic.

Last year Dimitrov fell victim to the Fed-Express at the fourth-round stage having not dropped a set in his previous three matches. A quarter-final spot is possible but lacks a big weapon to go further.

Juan Martin del Potro

Juan Martin del Potro to win Wimbledon @ 20/1

Wimbledon odds: 20/1

Appearances: 8

Grand Slam titles: 1

Last five years at Wimbledon: R2-R3-DNP-DNP-SF

The 2009 US Open champion has not gone beyond the third round since reaching the last four five years ago when he lost a five-set thriller to Djokovic, who went on to lose to Murray in the final.

However, Del Potro was absent for two of those years as the result of a career-threatening wrist injury which has required multiple operations.

This year has already been an unqualified success for Del Potro, who went on a 15-match winning run to secure back-to-back titles in Acapulco and Indian Wells, beating world number one Federer in the final in the latter. Despite having more than 20 titles to his name and one of the biggest forehands in the game, Del Potro has never won on grass which is reflected in the Wimbledon betting odds.

Nick Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios to win Wimbledon @ 22/1

Wimbledon odds: 22/1

Appearances: 4

Grand Slam titles: 0

Last five years at Wimbledon: R1-R4-R4-QF-DNP

The temperamental Australian has yet to improve on his debut appearance at his favourite tournament as a wild card four years ago when he reached the quarter-finals, taking the opening set against Milos Raonic but going on to lose the next three.

Kyrgios reached the fourth round in 2016, but lost in straight sets to Murray who went on to win the title for a second time.

Twelve months ago Kyrgios was forced to retire during his first-round match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert with the hip injury he aggravated in a fall at Queen's. After his Wimbledon exit he said: "I would love to be back here in 12 months' time 100% fit."

Quarter-final contender if fit and fully focused.
