2021 Wimbledon Betting Odds Remain Unchanged
There wasn’t any movement in the 2021 Wimbledon outright betting odds ahead of the first round of play. That isn’t too surprising given that there weren’t any big news surrounding any of the main favorites to hoist the trophy in England.
One day before the kick-off, Novak Djoković remains as the main favorite to win, priced at -115. Although the odds seem a bit low, they make a lot of sense, following Rafael Nadal’s decision to withdraw from the tournament.
As it stands now, Stefanos Tsitsipas (+550) is Djoković’s biggest threat for the title, followed by Daniil Medvedev (+600), who is priced as the third-favorite to win 2021 Wimbledon. Although both are strong players, who are capable of derailing the current world no.1, it’s unclear whether either of the two will manage to stop the Serb en route to his sixth Wimbledon title.
On the women’s side, Ashleigh Barty (+500) remains as the top-favorite to win her first Wimbledon after two quarter-finals appearances in 2014 and 2017 and a grand finals run in her debut in 2013. Barty emerged as the main female favorite following Naomi Osaka’s withdrawal from the tournament last week.
Following the Australian tennis star are Serena Williams (+650) and Petra Kvitova (+900) as second and third-favorite to hoist the trophy. Williams’ success on the English grass-courts (seven titles) alone is enough to make her one of the top favorites, while Kvitova earned her spot as one of the favorites thanks to her strong showings throughout the year.
Do Underdogs Stand a Chance?
The 2021 Wimbledon will feature a very stacked field; however, it wouldn’t be the first time an underdog would stun the world and claim the prestigious title for himself. On the men’s side of the field, Djoković’s dominance across all surfaces makes it very tough to pick out an outsider to upset him; however, there is one name that stands out.
Matteo Berrettini travels to Wimbledon as sixth-favourite (+1400), but he shouldn’t be overlooked as someone who can give Djoković and Federer a run for their money. The 25-year-old Italian has had an excellent season and is always a dangerous player to face, largely thanks to his aggressive playstyle and proficiency on all courts.
He is strong at the net, and his ability to punish mistakes is what could earn him a deep run in England. He has already proven his worth at the Queen’s Club Championship, which he won with a 6-4, 6-7, 6-3 victory against Briton Cameron Norrie, and seems ready as ever to challenge for his first Grand Slam title.
He might not be the perfect player, and some might be worried about Berrettini’s lack of consistency, but when he’s on, the Italian is tough to defeat. A lot will have to go in Berrettini’s favor to win in Wimbledon, but if there is one outsider that can impress, he is the one.
