Men unlikely to serve up a surprise
Ever since Goran Ivanisevic’s unforeseen win in 2001, there’s been a distinct absence of anything resembling a shock in the men’s singles. All but one victor afterwards approached the tournament seeded four or above, the exception being none other than Novak Djokovic last year. The only reason for his unusually low ranking of course being the series of injuries he suffered across 2017 and early 2018. The Serbian is just one of four unique names to have claimed the Wimbledon men’s singles crown in the last 16 years. Some might say it’s a perhaps a little too predictable but for others their exceptional talent and longevity is something to marvel at.
Although Andy Murray won’t be taking part in the singles tournament this year, two former champions, Roger Federer (7/2, BetVictor) and Rafael Nadal (11/2, bet365), will be joining Djokovic in SW19. The winner will surely be one of them but which one I hear you ask? Nadal, on the back off his recent French Open triumph, appears in good shape but Wimbledon is the Grand Slam in which he has the worst win percentage. It’s been nine years since he triumphed in London, although he did reach the semi-finals that last summer. Djokovic was the man who knocked him out then and it’s hard to see the Spaniard winning any potential re-match on grass.
Federer would stand a better chance against the Wimbledon favourite but at age 37, time is very much against him. He himself set the record for the oldest male player to win Wimbledon two years ago so it would be a huge ask to make history once again. That said, the Swiss maestro still has plenty to offer as he demonstrated over his easy Halle Open win, beating world number 23 David Goffin the final. Still able to assert his superiority over most players, Federer should go far here but Djokovic looks like winning any bouts between the two.
Zverev a future star
It was a few years ago when hype first began to surround Alexander Zverev (20/1, Betfair) and so far the young Germany has been living up to the lofty expectations. At 22 years old he’s already reached the quarter finals in two Grand Slams, exactly the same record as a certain Roger Federer. Although he began 2019 slowly, the youngster did enjoy a morale boosting win in Geneva when saving two match points in the final against Nicolas Jarry. After this, he enjoyed a fine French Open run, ending only when facing top seed Djokovic. After a bright start Zverev eventually lost his way, serving a trio of double faults at one point, but should he return to form, he’s good enough to beat anyone outside the top three.
Serena continues to fight
Serena Williams (13/2 Coral) has failed to win a Grand Slam since making her return to tennis but two finals appearances suggest a 24th title is not out of her reach. Earlier this year she did suffer her earliest Australian Open elimination since 2014 but her time down under wasn’t all bad. Before being sent home the American superstar beat then world number one Simona Halep 6-1 4-6 6-4. An early exit followed in the Indian Wells Masters but defeat to Garbine Muguruza was only due to a viral illness which forced her to retire. Injury problems also caused her to pull out of bouts in the Miami Open and Italian Open. Despite an increasing number of issues, the world number 11 continues to fight on but it’s hard to back her with such fitness doubts.
Kerber seeks title defence
Angelique Kerber made light work of Williams in last year’s Wimbledon final and she’s well priced to triumph in London once again. Having also reached the final in 2016, Wimbledon is her strongest Grand Slam with the grass courts suiting her style of play. When also considering that two years ago she only lost out 4-6 4-6 to the eventual winner, Muguruza, the German makes a strong case. A first Indian Wells final appearance greeted the 31-year-old earlier in the year and although her record since is a mixed one, she is the type who can raise her game for the big occasions.
Bertens a credible outsider
Unlike the men’s game, we’ve seen plenty of big odds winners winning the ladies singles at Wimbledon. Over the last 15 years, six champions were seeded outside the top 10 as well as a further six runners-up. Given that there’s also an absence of a dominant Serena Williams, previous such an unstoppable force, the potential for an upset at Wimbledon is considerable. Looking to be this year’s dark horse is rising star Kiki Bertens. Although her world number four ranking is likely to give her a decent seeding, odds of 33/1 with Betfair shows that she remains rather unfancied still. Looking at her Grand Slam record you can see why that’s the case but WTA’s “Most Improved Player of the Year” has the potential for a special tournament.
