Latest Wimbledon betting tips, odds & predictions are placed here
The 2018 Wimbledon kick-starts in London from the first week of July & all eyes will be on Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray as the fight for the men’s crown heats up. Get all the latest Wimbledon betting tips for the 2018 edition below.
If Wimbledon is the temple, then Roger Federer is the God.
This is a statement with which, many die-hard tennis fans will agree. The most prestigious tennis tournament in the world was taken to another level when Federer made history there. With seven Wimbledon titles in, the Swiss maestro is aiming for the eighth one, and in all fairness, he has an excellent chance to achieve this feat.
The 2018 Wimbledon is going to be a breathtaking one for many reasons. Federer’s return to greatness at the age of 36 has sent a chill down the spine of many big names on the tour.
Having won three titles already (A Grand Slam and two Masters), he has his eyes set on the Wimbledon. Djokovic has been the cause for Federer’s defeat at the SW19 for the last couple of seasons (with the exception of last year, when the Swiss lost to Milos Raonic).
However, this time, it may not be the case. The Serbian is struggling with his form while Andy Murray has had issues with his fitness. Both of them haven’t been able to leave a mark on the tour. Rafael Nadal may be a concern for him, but grass isn’t his forte, so Federer will have the upper hand against him.
There are many other players who may be able to make a dent on Federer’s ambition such as Raonic, Stan Wawrinka, Dominic Thiem, and Alexander Zverev being some of them, but this year, we have seen the fearless, confident side of Federer. His compensation for lack of agility around the court with acute precision on backhand and forehand, has made him a more dangerous player.
He is the defending champion and he still has some time to recuperate well in order to defend his title successfully. Nadal is another who could test some of the names mentioned about but it’s grass and despite having won the French Open, it will be interesting to see if he would be able to get the better of the aforementioned players.
Moving on to ladies half, Serena Williams has been seeded 25th despite not been ranked anywhere close, causing a lot of controversy and questions around whether she should have been seeded.
Angelique Kerber was the runner-up in 2016 to Williams while Garbine Muguruza will kick start the competition as the defending champion. This year, she has that opportunity, but the German hasn’t been in the same form, as she was last season. She has made it to the final of only one tournament this year – Monterrey Open, where she lost to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.
Apart from that, it’s only been a tale of mundane runs to quarterfinals for Kerber. Maria Sharapova can become the dark horse in the 2018 Wimbledon, but her form isn’t the same. She lacks consistency and needs to spend some time on the tour to build her rhythm once again.
Petra Kvitova will hope her injury issues can be kept behind going into this edition of the tournament.
The young guns are also the one to look out for. Elina Svitolina has been quite strong, along side with Karolina Pliskova. Eugenie Bouchard too, can prove to be quite surprising, but the lack of consistency on her part makes her a wildcard.
