The third Grand Slam of the season comes live from the United Kingdom and Wimbledon. It is undoubtedly the most competitive tournament on the tennis calendar, and that is highlighted in the Wimbledon odds.
The historical event is always a special occasion with hundreds of thousands of fans grappling to get tickets to see their favourite players. Those that are unfortunate in getting tickets still go to the All England Club for a day out, while most of which will be browsing the tennis odds looking for the perfect Wimbledon bet.
The competition is the only one of the Grand Slams that is played on a grass surface, and has been competed for since 1887. Again this year it will take place over two weeks spreading across June and July.

Wimbledon is renowned as a place where legends are made, and that is highlighted when you browse down the past winners of the competition. Players such as Bjorn Borg, Pete Sampras and Fred Perry have regularly won during the Open Era. But no player comes close to the dominance that Roger Federer has achieved at Wimbledon.
The Swiss will likely start this year's competition once again as one of the favourites in the Wimbledon odds, and the prospect of adding to his eight titles would be a record-extending achievement.
Away from Federer, players such as Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will also be prominent in the tennis odds. Djokovic will be looking to add to his four Wimbledon wins and repeat his feat in 2015 of successfully defending his title.
Nadal, on the other hand, has disappointed at Wimbledon in recent years and hasn't won the competition since 2010. However, he will remain as one of the favourites within the tennis odds due to his recent exploits in the French Open.
For much of home fans disgust Andy Murray will not play the Wimbledons Mens singles draw. He is looking to get fit to play singles tournaments later on in the year. A return to Wimbledon for the Brit in the coming years could see him given a chance to equal Fred Perry's record of three Wimbledon championships. However, these tennis odds won't be in Murray's favour.
Halle ATP showed that Roger Federer is still dominant on grass but there is that something missing – perhaps it is just lost power due to age. It remains to be seen if he will be able to pull it of this year once more.
Prediction: Novak Djokovic
While the men's title has been a hard fought battle between three or four players; the Williams' sisters have dominated the women's side of the competition. Since 2000, 15 of the 18 finals have included one of the sisters; with 12 of them being won by either Serena or Venus.
Serena Williams will have one eye on the all-time record; with the American currently two titles behind Martina Navratilova. That will be reflected in the tennis odds, and she will start the competition as the favourite.
The champions from 2014 and 2018 will also be prominent in the Wimbledon odds; with Petra Kvitova and Angelique Kerber looking to add to their title successes. Meanwhile, Garbine Muguruza will also be among the leaders in the tennis odds to win the Wimbledon championship again.
The big market mover following the French Open was Ashleigh Barty, as the Australian won her first Grand Slam at Roland Garros. Although, it will be difficult to predict that she quickly follows that up with a second victory at Wimbledon. She has however claimed the coveted world number one ranking on womens side.
Naomi Osaka will round off the favourites in the Wimbledon odds; as the 21-year-old will be looking to win her third Grand Slam title. However, Serena Williams will be formidable as she looks to get her hands back on the famous trophy for the first time in three years.
While the draw is quite open in terms of favorites - we very much like Barty here. She nudged another title after Roland Garros and this was on grass. So she has great trend coming into Wimbledon.
Prediction: Asleigh Barty
