Wimbledon 2018 Betting Offers
Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and is widely regarded as being the most prestigious. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London, since 1877 and is played on outdoor grass courts.
Roger Federer is the current Men’s champion, having won the title for a record 8th time last year. The Swiss legend is also the favourite in the Wimbledon betting odds to retain the trophy this year. Below we will go into more detail on our Wimbledon betting tips for 2018.
Betting Tips for the Games
Although changes to the grass and balls used in recent years have levelled the playing field somewhat, Wimbledon remains a tournament where the ability to serve and volley to a high standard is a significant advantage.
Clay court specialists, such as Austria’s Dominic Thiem, could struggle at Wimbledon and are worth watching for potential upsets in the early rounds. With Andy Murray now ruled out, British hopes will centre on Kyle Edmund, although he is another tennis player whose preferred surface is clay.
In the Women’s event, both age and a lack of competitive action over the past year could count against Serena Williams, although given that she is such a remarkable athlete, it probably isn’t worth betting against her.
Wimbledon Betting Odds
Roger Federer was the 2/1 pre-tournament favourite in the Wimbledon betting odds for the Men’s title, but he’s by no means considered banker material in the same way that Rafael Nadal is at the French Open.
Novak Djokovic has been showing signs of a return to form of late, reaching the quarter-final stage at the French Open and finishing runner-up to Marin Cilic in the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen’s Club.
In the Women’s event, Petra Kvitova is the marginal favourite, having won five WTA events already in 2018. Serena Williams is something of a wildcard given her lack of competitive action as a result of becoming a mother for the first time last year. As a seven-time Wimbledon champion and with 23 Grand Slam titles to her name though, she most definitely can’t be written off. Defending champion Garbine Muguruza is another major contender.

Who Will Win Wimbledon?
Both the Men’s and Women’s events look relatively wide open this year, with a changing of the guard on the horizon in both as the established names edge closer towards the end of their careers.
Who are Going to be the Leading Tennis Players?
Marin Cilic could be the biggest threat to Roger Federer’s ambitions for a ninth Wimbledon title, with the Croatian player having performed consistently well over the past year and winning the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen’s Club a week prior to Wimbledon.
Novak Djokovic seems to be returning to form after recovering from his elbow injury and, although still not playing at the level he was when at his dominant best, he could certainly go all the way.
Grass isn’t Rafael Nadal’s preferred surface, but he does have two Wimbledon titles (2008 and 2010) to his name and could be a threat. Juan Martin Del Potro is arguably the most gifted player in the men’s game and can beat anyone on his day.
In the Women’s event, Petra Kvitova is the form player and already has two Wimbledon titles to her name (2011 and 2014), so knows exactly what’s required. It would be crazy to discount Serena Williams and the further into the competition she goes, the more dangerous she could become.
Garbine Muguruza looks the other main contender, with the Spanish-Venezuelan capable of putting up a strong defence of her title.
