Latest Wimbledon betting tips, odds & predictions are placed here
The 2017 Wimbledon kick-starts in London from the first week of July & all eyes will be on Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray as the fight for the men’s crown heats up. Get all the latest Wimbledon betting tips for the 2017 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 2017 Wimbledon is going to be a breathtaking one for many reasons. Federer’s return to greatness at the age of 35 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 Cup. 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, along with Andy Murray, is struggling a bit with his form. 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, et cetera, 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.
Murray is the defending champion and he still has some time to recuperate well in order to defend his title successfully.
Moving on to ladies half, Serena Williams is the defending champion, who unfortunately, won’t be coming to SW19 for the 2017 Wimbledon. This has opened up a whole new avenue, for many tennis stars to move to the top.
Angelique Kerber was the runner-up last year and if Serena wasn’t her opponent in the final, her chances of winning the tournament would have been far better. 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 2017 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 can make a return to Wimbledon, having undergone the surgery after the attack. She is eager to play and may begin her season with the French Open to develop her form for Wimbledon, just in time.
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.
