Novak Djokovic holds the Wimbledon trophy after beating Matteo Berrettini

We're drawing closer to Wimbledon as the oldest tennis tournament in the world officially begins with the first-round play on Monday, June 27, at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. The world's best male and female players are looking to add to their legacy by winning this prestigious tournament.

This year's tournament marks the second since the 2020 edition was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but things still aren't exactly back to normal. Russian and Belarussian players are banned from the event, meaning men's world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev won't be participating, nor will women's world No. 6 Aryna Sabalenka.

Alex Zverev, world No. 2, is also out due to an injury. This leaves Novak Djokovic (-125) as the overwhelming betting favorite. The Serbian is looking to win his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title and 21st Grand Slam.

Who to Bet on Besides Djokovic?

Djokovic will be well-rested for Wimbledon as he hasn't played since the French Open, where he lost to Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals. He'll be especially motivated given he's two Grand Slam titles behind Nadal and usually performs well at Wimbledon and the US Open.

Nadal (+650) is in pursuit of the calendar Grand Slam, having won the French Open and Australian Open, but he hasn't won Wimbledon since 2010 and should be more of a longshot to win this year.

Two players to keep an eye on are Matteo Berrettini (+550) and Carlos Alcaraz (+800). Berrettini has been playing well on grass this season, and Alcaraz is one of the best young players in the sport. The 19-year-old Spaniard has a 32-4 record this season and could steal the show at Wimbledon.

Can Swiatek Continue Her Dominant Run?

Polish star Iga Swiatek should probably be even more of a favorite on the women's side than Djokovic is on the men's side. She is on a record-tying 35-match winning streak and has won six titles this year, including the French Open. 

She has taken a break since the French Open and has yet to play on grass this season, so there could be some unfamiliarity there. She'll definitely be in contention. Coco Gauff (+1000) is a good candidate to win, but hasn't performed to expectations this season.

Keep an eye on Ons Jabeur (+1000) and Simona Halep (+1200) and be hesitant about betting on them. Jabeur recently suffered an injury in doubles play with Serena Williams, who is making her return after a one-year absence, while Halep just withdrew from her semi-final match at Bad Homburg against Bianca Andreescu.

Andreescu, by the way, is worth a longshot bet at +2200, although that number was much higher before this week. The Canadian looks as though she is returning to form after an extended absence. She's into the finals at Bad Homburg without dropping a set.
