The 2016 Wimbledon Championships take place from June 27 to July 10 in Wimbledon, London, England. Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and arguably the most popular as well.
Unfortunately Rafael Nadal has already withdrawn on the men’s side, but his odds to win majors has slowly been slipping over recent years. All eyes will again be on Novak Djokovic, as he aims to win all four Grand Slam events this season. Djokovic was listed at +1100 to do so before the year and is now listed at +190 to pull off the incredible feat. He has already won the Australian Open and French Open this year, and looks to take that momentum into Wimbledon.
Here’s a look at the odds to win the Men’s title led by Novak Djokovic:
|Juan Martin Del Potro||+8500||+5000|
|Jo Wilfried Tsonga||+12500||+5000|
|Guillermo Garcia Lopez||+100000||+50000|
|Roberto Bautista Agut||+200000||+20000|
Djokovic is getting the most tickets at CRIS with 24% of support, but that number actually seems low given his dominance. Andy Murray has clearly inserted himself as his most formidable opponent ahead of Roger Federer, but players like Milos Raonic and Alexander Zverev could make a run at them this tournament.
Some notable odds moves over the last two weeks have been Federer (+1000 to +1475), Wawrinka (+2300 to +5000), Nishikori (+2800 to +7500) and Thiem (+10000 to +6000).
Here’s a look at the odds to win the Women’s title led by Serena Williams:
|Carla Suarez Navarro||+15000||+15000|
|Mirjana Lucic Baroni||+50000||+30000|
|Irina Camelia Begu||+50000||+50000|
|Bethanie Mattek Sands||+70000||+50000|
|Alison Van Uytvanck||+75000||+50000|
Serena was upset by Garbine Muguruza at the French Open and was upset by Angelique Kerber in the Australian Open, otherwise she’d also be chasing all four Grand Slam events this year. The suspension of Maria Sharpova and injury to Victoria Azarenka have improved the entire field’s odds, and we tend to see more longshots with a chance to win women’s titles lately. Young players like Sloane Stephens and Belinda Bencic are getting some good support at CRIS and could make a deep run.
Some notable odds moves over the last two weeks have been Kvitova (+600 to +1200), Keys (+2000 to +1300), and Radwanska (+2500 to +1800).
And finally here’s a look at past winners:
|Year||Men's Champion||Women's Champion|
|2015||Novak Djokovic +120||Serena Williams +175|
|2014||Novak Djokovic +150||Petra Kvitova +1200|
|2013||Andy Murray +350||Marion Bartoli +15000|
|2012||Roger Federer +350||Serena Williams +325|
|2011||Novak Djokovic +350||Petra Kvitova +1000|
|2010||Rafael Nadal +250||Serena Williams +175|
|2009||Roger Federer -105||Serena Williams +220|
This tournament was once owned by Roger Federer in the early 2000s, but Novak Djokovic has since taken over the throne and won the last two as the tourney favorite. On the women’s side, Serena Williams looks to defend her title and win her 7th Wimbledon title of her career.
