Breaking Down The Top Five Contenders To Win Wimbledon

Tennis BettingThe tennis spotlight will land on the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club this summer, as the best in the world compete for the third major of the betting season at Wimbledon. The competition has never been so fierce at the highest level, and the tennis grand slams are no longer just about an eventual final between Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer. Here is a quick look at the top five contenders for this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

Rafa Nadal

The No. 1 ranked player in the world proved his merit once again at Roland Garros, but Nadal has constantly complained about how the long season has been tough on his legs and fatigue may start to take its toll on him at Wimbledon. Nadal faces one of the toughest roads to the finals with potential matchups against Marin Cilic and Robin Soderling before any showdown with his nemesis Federer, and if he makes it the distance it will take an incredible amount of determination for him to close out his second grand slam win of the season.

Roger Federer

Even those in the MLB world seem to pay attention whenever Roger competes in the finals at a grand slams tournament, mainly because that elusive 17th grand slam win has eluded him over the past couple of years. Not since he took the Australian Open in 2010 has Federer been at the top of his game, but he looked very good in pushing the clay court king Nadal in the finals of the French Open and it may have been a sign that he is ready to get the job done on his own turf at Wimbledon.

Novak Djokovic

Djokovic conceded his 41-win streak to Federer in the semi finals at Roland Garros, but there is every reason to think that he will bounce back as determined as ever at this year’s Wimbledon. It may have been a blessing in disguise for the Joker to avoid Nadal at the French Open, as he now sets out on a new sports betting bonus goal with the chance at his second grand slam title of 2011.

Andy Murray

England’s greatest hope will once again look to break through with his first Grand Slam title, but he has never reached the finals at Wimbledon. Semi final appearances the past two seasons have been quite the tease for the home fans, and with one of the tougher roads to the finals once again it appears as though he will have to wait at least one more year before his streak of futility ends.

Robin Soderling

Soderling has one of the easier roads to the Wimbledon final, but the problem is doing something if he gets there. Soderling has never beaten Federer or Nadal in a major, and with both playing at such an incredible level heading into this tournament it is unlikely that online casino trend will end anytime soon.
