Bet On The 2013 Wimbledon

1wimWith the French Open and Paris behind us, it’s time to move on to the trimmed laws of the All England Club for Wimbledon. Rafael Nadal deservedly sealed a record eighth French Open title last month in the men’s draw, whilst Serena Williams continued her marvelous 2013 form to add yet another major title to her already impressive trophy cabinet. Williams will be looking to be extend her form in London, and is rightfully the tournament favourite on the women’s side of things, but the men’s section will be a lot more balanced, with Roger Federer defending his crown amidst a strong array of contenders this time out.

2013 Wimbledon Odds – Men

Novak Djokovic 5/4

Andy Murray 3/1

Rafael Nadal 4/1

Roger Federer 7/1

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 22/1

Juan Martin Del Potro 40/1

Tomas Berdych 40/1

World number one and number one seed for Wimbledon Novak Djokovic fell at the semi-final stages to Nadal at Roland Garros a couple of weeks ago, and with the grass more suitable to his game, he will be looking to his 2011 victory over the next few weeks. Nadal is seeded 5 for Wimbledon, meaning he will prove a tough nut for one of the top seeds in this tournament. In any event, all players involved will know that they will have to be at their best to lift the title on July 7. Andy Murray will again have the weight of expectation on his shoulders after reaching the final last year before losing in four sets to Federer. The Scot went on to win Olympic gold against the Swiss maestro as well as the US Open later on in the year, but the Wimbledon is the one title he will want the most. He had to pull out of the French with an injury, but came back strongly last week to win the title at Queen’s Club as preparation for Wimbledon, so he should be all set to go.

2013 Wimbledon Odds – Women

Serena Williams 2/5

Maria Sharapova 6/1

Victoria Azarenka 7/1

Petra Kvitova 22/1

Na Li 40/1

Agnieszka Radwanska 40/1

Angelique Kerber 66/1

Sabine Lisicki 66/1

Samantha Stosur 80/1

Caroline Wozniacki 100/1

The real question in the women’s section is whether anybody can overcome the steamroller that has been Serena Williams over the last 12-month period. Since winning the title back last year, Williams’ record reads 74-3, and is currently on a 31-match unbeaten streak. She has won three of the last four majors and now sits at 16 major titles. If she remains fit, it is difficult to see anyone beating her, as was the case in the French Open. Maria Sharapova remains one of the leading opponents to Williams, but after losing in the final against her in Paris, she has now lost the last 13 times they have played. Cases could be made for 2011 champion Petra Kvitova and two-time semi-finalist Victoria Azarenka, but they will all be chasing Williams over the next two weeks, and will more than likely come up short.
