Wimbledon is the most prestigious tournament on the tennis schedule every year. This year the men’s draw is even more interesting because the number 1 ranking could swap hands after this tourney if Federer or Nadal outperform Djokovic. For Federer a tournament victory would put him back at #1, which would be quite an accomplishment because it would give him 286 weeks at #1 in his career, which would tie Pete Sampras’ record. Federer is being given the 3rd best chance at winning the tournament, but his play of late has been impressive. Here are the odds for the tournament champion courtesy of Bet365.com:
2012 Wimbledon Winner Odds
Novak Djokovic +163
Rafa Nadal +200
Roger Federer +450
Andy Murray +1100
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga +2800
Milos Raonic +3300
Tomas Berdych +3300
Juan Martin Del Potro +4000
As you can see it would be quite the surprise if one of the big 3 did not win this tournament. There are also many other betting options available for each match throughout the tournament:
