Wimbledon 2017 Preview and Betting Offers

This year’s tournament is hard to call, with very little splitting the big four in the Men’s Outright Market. Roger Federer is currently favourite to secure his eighth title and is priced at 9/4 (3.25) with bet365.
He’ll face fierce competition though from Andy Murray who’s currently 10/3 (4.33), Rafael Nadal at 9/2 (5.50) and Novak Djokovic at 6/1 (7.00). Between them these four have won the last 14 Wimbledon titles, so it would be a big shock for someone outside of them to take the honours this year.
The Women’s Betting is more open than the Men’s; Karolina Pliskova is favourite at 9/2 (5.50) and is followed in the betting by Petra Kvitova at 5/1 (6.00) and Garbine Muguruza at 10/1 (11.00). Kvitova is the only one of that trio to have tasted success here before, triumphing in 2011 and 2014. That 2014 win was her last Grand Slam title though, and Angelique Kerber could be an interesting option at 14/1 (15.00). She was beaten in the final last year by Serena Williams, who is absent from this year’s tournament, and claimed two Grand Slam titles in 2016. Jelena Ostapenko, the unseeded winner of the French Open at the start of this month, is available at 14/1 (15.00).
It’s been 83 years since Britain saw success in the Men’s and Women’s tournaments in the same year, but there’s probably never been a better chance of this happening with Murray second favourite for the Men’s title and Johanna Konta fourth favourite for the Women’s. You may well be interested in the Murray-Konta double at a tempting price of just over 55/1 (56.33)!
