Federer Leads the Way on 2018 Wimbledon Odds

Federer Leads 2018 Wimbledon Betting Odds

Roger Federer will be vying for an unprecedented ninth victory at the Wimbledon Championships when he hits the court for first-round action next week as a heavy +150 favorite on the 2018 Wimbledon odds.

The 36-year-old Swiss legend has continued to defy Father Time this season, reaching the finals in five of the six tournaments in which he has participated, and earning three wins including a sixth career victory at the Australian Open. However, he remains stalled at No. 2 on the ATP World Rankings entering the 2018 Wimbledon Championships.

Federer dominated in his march to victory earlier this month at the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, sweeping past Canadian Milos Raonic in straight sets, but suffered a stunning upset defeat at the hands of 21-year-old Borna Coric last week in the final of the Gerry Weber Open.

However, the 20-year veteran has enjoyed consistent success at Wimbledon, advancing as far as the finals in three of his past four appearances, and has posted wins in three of his past four appearances at Grand Slam tournaments including the 2017 Wimbledon Championships.

The world’s current No. 1 player currently represents Federer’s closest competition on the Wimbledon betting favorites. Rafael Nadal sits at +500, ahead of Novak Djokovic at +650, and Alexander Zverev at +800, while Scotland’s Andy Murray rounds out the list of Wimbledon betting favorites at +900.

Nadal returns to action in London for the first time since his spectacular performance at Roland-Garros, where he lost just one set on his way to an 11th career French Open victory as a heavy betting favorite.

The 32-year-old Spanish star has regained his perch atop the ATP World Rankings with wins in four of his past five tour appearances, including wins in Rome, Barcelona, and Monte Carlo, but has enjoyed limited success at Wimbledon, reaching the fourth round just once since his last win in 2010.

 

Djokovic Looks to Reclaim Past Wimbledon Glory

Djokovic has produced mixed results since returning to action following elbow surgery earlier this year. The former No. 1 struggled to early exits at Indian Wells, and Barcelona, but showed steady progress while reaching the quarter-finals at the French Open, and is just three years removed from consecutive victories at Wimbledon.

Zverev has regularly gone deep in his tour appearances this year, reaching the finals on four occasions, and posting wins in Madrid and Munich, but the 21-year-old German has yet to claim his first career Grand Slam win, and has failed to get past the fourth round in three previous appearances at Wimbledon.

A two-time winner at Wimbledon, most recently in 2016, Murray has not appeared in a Grand Slam tournament since last year’s Wimbledon Championships, where he bowed out in the quarter-finals. The 31-year-old underwent hip surgery in January, but returned to action at last week’s Queen’s Club Championship, falling to Nick Kyrgios in the Round of 32.

Further down the Wimbledon futures odds, Martin Cilic joins Juan Martin del Potro at +1200, ahead of Kyrgios at +1600, while Raonic sits alongside Grigor Dimitrov at +2000.
