It is less than a week untill the biggest Grand Slam tournament of the year is about to go down, namely Wimbledon. This year is bound to be as exciting as ever as it is big competition at the top and it seems to be anyones claim for the trophy. Big names like Nadal, Djokovic, Federer, Murray and others are expected to have great chances of taking it. Some up and coming players should not be ruled out either as the likes of Wawrinka, Dimitrov, Berdych, Ferrer, Isner and others are no walkover matches for the top players. It is anyones game, but we have done some analysis and come up with our favorites and outright bets before the tournament starts.
The Brit won his first Wimbledon title last year when he beat this years favorite, Novak Djokovic. Murray has grown into an elite player over the last years and thus a contender for the Grand Slam title as well.
Murray hasn’t gotten the best start going into this years Wimbledon as he went out in round two of the ATP Queens tournament. He has always struggled performing at a stable level and handling the pressure that comes with competing at the top. Coming in as the defending champion should not help alleviate any kind of pressure and it is gonna be exciting to see how he handles it this time. I have my doubts whether he can or not, but if he does he has a legitimate shot at the title again.
He won his last Grand Slam tournament back in 2012, which happened to be the Wimbledon tournament. Many experts has claimed that Federer has won his last Grand Slam tournament and is getting too old, but I do not agree with this sentiment. He still has some gas left in him and if he is to win another Grand Slam he needs to do it at Wimbledon as grass is the turf he feels most comfortable with.
The swiss tennis player showed excellent play during the tournament in Halle and took home the tournament for the seventh time. Last year Federer went out in the second round quite surprisingly as his opponent played an amazing match. He will, as he has always been, be a force to be reckoned with and will pull to get to the top. He has done a very good job working on his form and volley play and coming into this looks to be in very good shape.
The obvious favorites to this tournament are Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. But the odds on the Serbian is too low for us to consider at 2.75 (odds at TitanBet) and the Spaniard does not favor the grass turf and we do not like the odds at 6.25 (odds at 5Dimes).
The other contenders are not anyone we foresee have any chance of going all the way and the odds are too low to take a chance of the off chance happening. Maybe a longshot bet on Berdych at 51 in odds at Pinnacle Sports could be worth it, but it would be for a small sum anyways. Our two main bets have already been made up.
Andy Murray to win Wimbledon 2014 (Odds are 5.31 @ Pinnacle Sports)
Roger Federer to win Wimbledon 2014 (Odds are 7.00 @ TitanBet)
