Rafael Nadal celebrates winning his match in four sets against Novak Djokovic

We're about a month removed from the French Open, and the grass court season is nearing its conclusion, with Wimbledon scheduled to begin at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club on Monday, June 27. The oldest tennis tournament in the world was founded in 1877 and will host its 135th edition this year.

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, as always, are among the top betting favorites heading into Wimbledon, despite neither having played since the French Open. Nadal was nursing an injury, while Djokovic clearly doesn't need the grass court experience; he has won each of the last three Wimbledons and five in the last seven years.

As for players who have been competing on ATP 250 grass court events, Matteo Berrettini and Hubert Hurkacz have especially improved their stock. Berrettini won the Cinch Championship and Mercedes Cup with finals victories over Filip Krajinović and Andy Murray, respectively. Hurkacz defeated Daniil Medvedev in the finals of the Terra Wortmann Open.

Medvedev, the world No. 1, lost in two grass court finals this season but is unable to participate at Wimbledon as the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club has banned Russian and Belarussian players. World No. 2 Alex Zverev will also miss the tournament due to injury.

Djokovic and Nadal's Rivalry

The rivalry between Djokovic and Nadal will be the primary focus at this year's Wimbledon. Roger Federer, the third member of tennis' "Big 3," is still recovering from surgery and not expected to compete at Wimbledon.

Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer were all tied at 20 Grand Slam victories each heading into this season. Djokovic was unable to compete at the Australian Open due to his vaccination status, leaving the door open for Nadal to win his 21st Grand Slam. The Spaniard then successfully defended his title at the French Open, where he is basically unbeatable.

Djokovic, however, should have the advantage on the grass court at Wimbledon, and his betting line (-125) reflects that. Nadal is two Grand Slams away from the calendar Grand Slam, which has only been achieved by five players in history, so he will be equally motivated. 

The draw sets up for a potential Nadal-Djokovic final.

Young Guns Looking for Their First Grand Slam

The dominance of Nadal, Djokovic, and Federer over the last 15-plus years hasn't left much opportunity for others to win Grand Slams. Betting favorites Berrettini (+550), Alcaraz (+800), Auger-Aliassime (+1100), and Hurkacz (+1400) are all 26 and younger and have yet to win a Grand Slam.

Berrettini is one of the hottest players on the ATP Tour right now, while Alcaraz, 19, has a remarkable 32-4 record this season and is the world No. 7. Auger-Aliassime became just the third player to take Nadal to five sets at the French Open, and Hurkacz has played well on grass.

Underdogs Who Could Be in Contention

While not necessarily a major underdog, there's good value in betting on Stefanos Tsitsipas (+1800), Marin Cilic (+2000), and Andy Murray (+2500).

Americans to keep an eye on include Jenson Brooksby (+5000), Taylor Fritz (+5000), and Reilly Opelka (+6600).
