The world’s most prestigious tennis tournament has arrived and, with another ten days remaining of Wimbledon 2022, can we expect Rafael Nadal to extend his record for men’s singles Grand Slam titles, or will Novak Djokovic set the pace?
In the women’s, can the impressive Ons Jabeur collect her first Wimbledon title, or will Iga Swiatek claim her third major?

Djokovic will attempt to win his fourth successive Wimbledon title in the men’s competition. The 35-year-old Serbian will be confident on the grass court with six previous Wimbledon trophies in his cabinet.
Will the Joker match the sportsbooks expectations and win the competition as a firm betting favorite? Tieme Wesselink of FOX Bet doesn’t seem to think so. Wesselink believes Nadal is an excellent piece of betting value to claim his third Wimbledon success and 23rd Grand Slam singles title.
“Rafael Nadal cannot be counted out for any Grand Slam. His grass record is decent, and he’s a two-time champion with many years of experience,” Wesselink said. “Nadal announced he recovered well from his foot injury sustained at the end of the clay-court season. He is not in the same half of the draw as Djokovic, and the two legends can only meet in the final.”

Considering the current odds, there is zero value in betting on Djokovic. However, with Nadal offering an attractive price and previous success on this court, he’s the best bet to take.

Wimbledon 2022 Women’s Singles
With a clear lead as the bookmaker’s favorite to win it all we have Iga Swiatek at +150. However, with minimal career success on grass courts, the French Open champion could surrender her 35-match win streak at Wimbledon 2022.
Swiatek didn’t attend the warm-up events on grass, and she’s never surpassed the fourth round at Wimbledon. So, similar to betting on the men’s singles, we look towards the second women’s favorite, Ons Jabeur – the second-best women’s player.
Serena Williams was the obvious outlier in this betting position, but Harmony Tan eliminated her in the first round. Williams won’t be extending her 23 Grand Slam singles title record, but Ons Jabeur has impressed in the first two rounds (6-3 and 6-0).

With a historical downfall of failing to deliver on grass courts, betting Swiatek shouldn’t provide much confidence for those wagering in her favor. Jabeur has already dominated in the first two rounds, and if this streak continues, her +450 odds will take a dramatic hit.
