Wimbledon 2022 betting tips, predictions, latest odds and free bets | The Sun

WIMBLEDON is on the horizon and despite the ranking arguments should be another huge spectacle.

Most of the top tennis stars will be in attendance, including Serena Williams.

Novak Djokovic will be looking for a fourth victory at SW19 in a row, with the 2020 event cancelled, and a seventh overall.

But Rafael Nadal, after winning the French Open again, will have a say.

Wimbledon odds – men’s (Betfair)

  • Novak Djokovic 8/11
  • Rafael Nadal 13/2
  • Carlos Alcaraz 15/2
  • Matteo Berrettini 17/2
  • Felix Auger Alisassime 12/1
  • Marin Cilic 22/1
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas 25/1
  • Nick Kyrgios 25/1
  • Hubert Hurkacz 35/1
  • Andy Murray 35/1          

Djokovic will start the tournament as the big favourite, despite Nadal's resurgence in Paris where he won his 15th title at Roland Garros.

While Federer and Alexander Zverev are out with injury and Andy Murray is in a race against time after withdrawing from Queen's.

Djokovic, who was denied the chance to defend in Australia, fell to Nadal in the French Open quarter-final but will try to defend at Wimbledon.

The only slam prior to the French he hasn’t won recently – since 2018 – is the US Open where he lost in the final last year to Daniil Medvedev.

As it stands Medvedev won’t be at Wimbledon, after they decided to ban Russian and Belarussian players, which then saw the ATP strip the ranking points.

  • Ons Jabeur 16/1
  • Serena Williams 16/1
  • Petra Kvitova 16/1
  • Karolina Pliskova 16/1
  • Emma Raducanu 18/1

Naomi Osaka threatened to skip Wimbledon after her early exit in France but is still listed to play.

She remains second favourite with the bookies, behind Iga Swiatek, the 20-year-old star who won her second Grand Slam in France.

Swiatek is priced at 6/4 ahead of Osaka, Simona Halep and Cori Gauff.

Emma Raducanu has seen her price lengthen to 18/1 following disappointment in Paris.

While Ash Barty will not be back to defend her Wimbledon crown after retiring in March.

Wimbledon predictions

Picking a winner from the women’s challengers feel a lot harder than the men’s where it’s incredibly tough to look beyond Djokovic.

He is the sport’s dominant force and it feels like only a boycott or injury could stop him defending this year.

Medvedev won’t be in south London and the others look someway short of really challenging Djokovic when it really matters.

Djokovic has lost just a staggering five times in Grand Slams since 2014 – Medvedev in the US Open final last year, Nadal in the French Open final in 2020, Stan Wawrinka in the US Open final in 2016 and Wawrinka again in the French Open final in 2015 before this year's final against Nadal..

He has a won 13 titles since 2015 after missing all four Grand Slams in 2017.

On the women's side Swiatek picked up her second slam in Paris and looks ready to become the leading player for years to come.

Before the French Open she had reached the second week of her six previous Slams.

Raducanu will hope to challenge but will be hoping for a better showing than on the clay in Paris.

She lost to Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the second round after her second round exit in Australia as well.

The 19-year-old Brit is among the favourites though and reached the fourth round last year.

With Osaka’s participation in doubt Raducanu could be the one to back this year.
