The first-round matches at Wimbledon 2023 begin on Monday July 3 and there are some familiar faces at the top of the Men’s and Ladies’ outright betting odds in Novak Djokovic 8/13 and Iga Swiatek 2/1.

Both enter the third Grand Slam tournament of the year having triumphed in the second at Roland Garros, but while Djokovic is seeking to win the fifth successive championship he’s contested at the All England Club, Swiatek has yet to progress beyond the fourth round in three visits to SW19 as a senior.

Our Wimbledon outright predictions highlight decent odds on the men’s final that the odds predict but the Ladies’ tournament has a much more open feel to it.

Men’s Singles

Novak Djokovic looks a very fair price to win the fifth consecutive Wimbledon in which he’s competed at 1/2.

The Serb was beating world number one Carlos Alcaraz on the Spaniard’s favoured clay in the French Open semi-final even before the teenage titan suffered an injury which hampered his ability to compete and few, if any, other players have the potential to serve it up to him on grass.

The first port of call for value hunters might ordinarily be to go in search of each-way plays on the other side of the draw, but Alcaraz looks very tough to oppose in the upper section having won at Queen’s in the build-up to this year’s tournament at the All England Club.

That triumph goes a long way to banishing any doubts as to whether his ever-growing talent translates to the green stuff and he looks more like the long-term heir to Djokovic’s crown every day.

Betzone’s trading team have priced a special of an Alcaraz vs Djokovic final in the third Slam of the year and the odds of 2/1 look about the most appetising out there in the men’s draw.

Ladies’ champion has the tools to defend her crown in SW19

Those that only dip into tennis betting occasionally could be forgiven for thinking the 2/1 about Iga Swiatek to win Wimbledon looks a very generous price about the dominant player in the game.

However, the Polish star is the first to admit she remains uncomfortable on grass and finds that she can’t play her natural game on the surface, despite winning the junior title at SW19 in 2018.

As such it’s worth taking her on with a rival more at home on lawn courts and two in particular spring to mind, 2011 and 2014 champ Petra Kvitova and reigning queen of the All England Club Elena Rybakina.

Kvitova 12/1 comes in hot having beaten a good field to win in Berlin, but she’s only got as far as the fourth round at Wimbledon in her last eight attempts.

Elena Rybakina was a confident French Open prediction ,before being forced to withdraw at the third-round stage with an upper respiratory illness. She looks good value to defend her title here at point longer price than the lawn-agnostic world number one.

Her lead-in grass form isn’t as strong as Kvitova’s on the face of it (she’s lost two of her three games on the surface this term), but those results mirror her form leading into the tournament last year.

Should Rybakina meet Swiatek in the championship match her 4-1 winning career head-to-head against the Pole should stand her in good stead.
