It’s that time of year again. Mountains of strawberries and cream will be eaten, gallons of Pimms consumed and thousands of tennis balls gone through as the world focuses its attention on a sleepy corner of South-West London. Yes it’s Wimbledon time again.
The biggest tournament on the tennis calendar is always a great watch and this year’s renewal should be more of the same.
On the men’s side, Novak Djokovic is the favourite in the betting at a best price of 2.4 following his triumph at the Australian Open and winning Wimbledon last year. With Nadal having emerged victorious at Rolland Garros, Djokovic will be eager to reestablish his dominance at the top of the game.
Roger Federer is next in the betting at a best price of 4.33, with French Open champion Rafael Nadal available at 8.5 and both will fancy their chances of going deep into the tournament. Nadal however has admitted he struggles on grass because of his knees and has a very tough draw, whilst it may be asking too much of Roger to win once again at the age of 37.
Andy Murray makes his return to Wimbledon after career-saving surgery and whilst few will be expecting a big run from him, it will be welcome to see him back on court and playing tennis again.
On the women’s side, we have become accustomed to open-looking draws these days and we have one again this year, with French Open champion Ash Barty heading the betting at 7.0, closely followed by Eastbourne winner Karolina Pliskova at 8.0.
