Novak Djokovic Clear Cut Above the Field
To no one’s surprise, Novak Djokovic is by far the biggest betting favorite to win the 2021 Wimbledon. He has been in exceptional form this season and has further solidified himself as world no.1 with his remarkable win in the 2021 French Open.
The Serbian tennis superstar now holds two Grand Slam titles on the year and is +130 favorite to make it three in Wimbledon. Rafael Nadal, who has suffered a devastating semi-final defeat against Djokovic in France, travels to England as the second favorite, priced at +650.
Although a relatively generous offer, +650 seems a fair price to pay for a player who hasn’t won Wimbledon once since he claimed his second title in 2010. Nadal has since reached finals (2011) and two semi-finals (2018, 2019).
A More Competitive Field Amongst Ladies
On the women’s side, Naomi Osaka leads the market as a +500 favorite. That is even though she has never won in Wimbledon.
Across her three trips to England, Osaka managed two R3 exits (2017, 2018) and one R1 exit (2019). Despite her lack of success at Wimbledon, she has proven her worth with four Grand Slam titles from US Open (2018, 2020) and the Australian Open (2019, 2021), meaning she only needs to win in Wimbledon to complete the set.
World no.1 Ashleigh Barty (+600) is priced as the second favorite for the third Grand Slam of the year. Similar to Osaka, Barty has never won in Wimbledon and has never reached past R4 (2019).
Despite winning the tournament in 2019, Simona Halep travels to All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club as only the third-favorite to win. She is priced as high as +800, next to Petra Kvitova and Serena Williams.
Betting on Halep to win the 2021 Wimbledon should appeal to many. She has been very successful in her trips to England and failed to reach at least quarter-finals only once across her last four appearances.
Williams presents another appealing pick for those looking to bet on the 2021 Wimbledon. She has won the tournament seven times in her career and has made it to the finals in all of her last four outings.
Although Williams is no longer as good as she was back in the day, her success on the English grass-court alone should be enough to make her a solid pick at the offered odds.
