The Favorites for this Year’s Men’s and Women’s Wimbledon Tournaments
Wimbledon 2023 runs from July 3 through July 16 at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club in London. Last year, tennis fans saw world number one Novak Djokovic triumph in the men’s singles. Elena Rybakina was a surprise winner of the women’s singles.
Currently, the sportsbooks have Djokovic at +110 to retain his title, whereas Rybakina has odds of +1200 to retain the women’s title; Iga Swiatek is currently at odds of +400 as the favorite to win. As this prestigious tournament draws closer, will these odds prove to be accurate, and which other players are in the running to be champion? We spoke to a tennis expert at Justgamblers, the site that shared these gambling odds with us. She told us:
“Given that he is currently world number one and has recently won the Australian Open, you can understand why Djokovic is the favorite to win the men’s singles title. He is the most likely winner. When it comes to Swiatek, she is definitely a form player, having won the French and US Open last year. So, the fact that she is the favorite for the women’s title at Wimbledon is justified.”
So, the odds on the favorites are justified by form, but we will only know how accurate they prove to be once Wimbledon 2023 is over. Several other players who are favored by the sportsbooks hope they will have a say.
Men’s singles tournament favorites and odds
The odds on Novak Djokovic suggest that he is going to triumph at Wimbledon again this year. However, he is not the only player with odds that suggest they are in with a chance of success. Carlos Alcaraz, the current world number two, currently has odds of +650 with the sportsbooks. He won the 2022 US Open, and his form is good, so he will expect to progress through the tournament and will hope to lift the trophy. Other favorites for the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Championship are Matteo Berrettini with odds of +700, Rafael Nadal with odds of +800, Daniil Medvedev with odds of +800, and Alexander Zverev with odds of +1000.
Women’s singles tournament favorites and odds
It’s understandable that Iga Swiatek is currently the favorite to win the women’s tournament at Wimbledon 2023. However, others on the women’s tour will be hoping to impress. Tunisian player Ons Jabeur has current sportsbook odds of +900. She reached the final of Wimbledon last year, and that has to go in her favor. The third favorite in the odds right now is Naomi Osaka at +1000. The Japanese player has yet to make a big impact at Wimbledon, but she certainly has the skills to deliver. Other plays who currently have the shortest odds for the tournament are last year’s champion Elena Rybakina with odds of +1200, Aryna Sabalenka, with odds of +1400, and Cori “Coco” Gauff, with odds of +1400.
These players all have the opportunity to shine at Wimbledon 2023, and the sportsbooks suggest that the winners will come from this group. However, the winner of Wimbledon is not always predictable, and outsiders, most famously a 17-year-old Boris Becker, have triumphed in the past.
