August 20, 2022

Novak Djokovic is back to defend his Wimbledon title, and Serena Williams is back, period.

It’s time for the best players in the world – most of them, anyway – to gather at the All England Club and compete in the third Grand Slam of the year. The 2022 Championships at Wimbledon will take place from June 27 to July 10, and the eyes of the tennis world will once again be on SW19.

The tournament will go ahead without Roger Federer in the draw for the first time since 1998, the year before the eight-time champion made his debut. He hasn’t played since a quarter-final loss there last year as he recovers from knee surgery. On the women’s side, seven-time champion Williams has also been absent from the circuit since retiring in the first round at Wimbledon last year before making a comeback in doubles at the Eastbourne tune-up event.

Although Williams thinks she’ll get the lion’s share of the early attention, she won’t be favored to add another title. Those honors go to world No. 1 Iga Swiatek, who enters Wimbledon on a 35-game winning streak after clinching the French Open title in early June. She will only be making her third main draw appearance at the event and will be looking to improve on last year’s fourth-round exit.

Defending champion Djokovic is favored in the men’s draw as he looks to bounce back from his epic quarter-final loss to eventual champion Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. Although not as much is expected of the Spaniard on grass, the two-time champion cannot be completely discounted as a threat.

Wimbledon 2022 Betting Odds

With world number 1 Daniil Medvedev out due to Wimbledon’s ban on Russian players this year and world number 2 Alexander Zverev injured, Novak Djokovic is in an even stronger position than usual to win the title.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner has won the last three editions of Wimbledon, so it’s no surprise to see bookmakers consider him the top favorite ahead of Matteo Berrettini, who took the first set from Djokovic before losing against him in four sets. in the 2021 final.

Berrettini recently won the Queen’s tournament in London, so his award is shorter than Rafael Nadal — who may stay on track for the Grand Slam of the calendar with a win but has had familiar issues with a foot injury lately. time — makes sense.

Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz won the Madrid Open and the Miami Open this year. The 19-year-old reached the second round on his Wimbledon debut in 2021 and is being touted by some as Nadal’s successor, having risen to No. 7 in the world.

USA 11th seed Taylor Fritz is listed as the 14th most likely winner by the bookmakers, and his backers will certainly have financial and sporting reason to celebrate if the +6510 shot produces a huge shock.

In the women’s draw, Iga Swiatek is on a 35-match unbeaten streak, winning her last six tournaments to become the clear favorite and, at 21, the youngest seed at Wimbledon in 11 years.

American prodigy Coco Gauff is three years younger than Swiatek and has only won four matches against her in the French Open final, which partly explains why the third seed, behind Swiatek and Wimbledon 2021 quarter-finalist Ons Jabeur, has considerably longer odds.

The underdogs among the favorites cannot be ruled out because of their pedigree. Simona Halep won the 2019 final against Williams, the seven-time champion who was seeded despite an extended absence that saw her drop to a world ranking of 1,204.Odds via Sports Interaction as of June 24.)
