Wimbledon – Favourites & Outsiders

It’s that time of year again to crack open the Pimms and get the strawberries and cream in. But who will come out on top? And do Britain have a chance without Andy Murray? Let’s find out…

TOP CONTENDERS

Roger Federer – 7/4

The world number 2 is the current holder of the Men’s title and already has another grand slam this year, winning the Australian open. Expect him to at least make the final in his favourite tournament here.

VERDICT – Winner

Marin Cilic – 6/1

The Croatian likes the surface at Wimbledon. He reached the final last year and has been in decent form in the first 2 grand slams of the year, reaching the final of the Australian open and quarter final of the French.

VERDICT – Semi final

OUTSIDERS

Grigor Dimitrov – 50/1

Dimitrov hasn’t been in the best of form in the past year but he does have good memories of Wimbledon, knocking out Andy Murray in 2014. At 50/1 this might be worth an each way bet.

VERDICT – Quarter final

Dominic Thiem – 50/1

The world number 7 already has a grand slam final under his belt this year, losing to Rafael Nadal in the French Open.

VERDICT – Semi final 

DO BRITAIN HAVE A CHANCE?

Kyle Edmund has been Britain’s number 1 since March and is ranked 21 at Wimbledon this year. Does he have a chance of winning? Probably not but he will be confident of getting through a couple of rounds. Priced at 80/1, this should give you an idea of his chances.

VERDICT – 3rd round

– Robert Shiers
