Wimbledon 2018 Betting Tips
Although the men’s tournament looks less open than the women’s there are players in both draws who offer tempting betting value. So, let’s see if we can find the best bets in our Wimbledon 2018 betting tips.
Federer to Grind Out a Superb Ninth Title
There were those who said that Roger Federer was too old to win Wimbledon last year. The Swiss superstar made those doubters eat their words in emphatic style.
Federer took the decision to give the clay court season a miss as he wanted to do everything he could to ensure he was fit and fresh for Wimbledon. That decision paid off spectacularly as he won his eighth Wimbledon title without dropping a single set.
He’s taken things easy again in the lead up to this year’s tournament and while his preparations took a hit as he failed to win in Halle, Federer remains the man all the others have to beat.
He may turn 37 just a couple of weeks after the final but Federer has all the class in the world. He also has the competitive spirit to dig deep should things not go to plan so we recommend taking the $2.75 that Bet365 are quoting on Federer’s chances of winning Wimbledon.
Can Kyrgios Build on His Encouraging Play at Queen’s?
Nick Kyrgios has made as many headlines for his behaviour as for his achievements on the tennis court. The 23-year-old from Canberra has made his fair share of mistakes but wouldn’t we all if we were growing up such an intense spotlight?
He continued to get attention for the wrong reasons at Queen’s Club recently but he did at least play some very good tennis on his return from an elbow injury.
Kyrgios lost only narrowly in the semi-final to eventual champion, Marin Cilic, and it’s all systems go for an assault on the Wimbledon title. You never know how his body will hold up but Kyrgios is ready to kick it up a level and could just represent each-way value at $18 with Unibet.
Halep Ready for Shot at Serena’s Record
Women’s tennis has been in great shape for a long time. There is an incredible amount of talent in the top ranks and every Grand Slam has several potential winners.
That competitiveness has meant that you have to go back to 2015 for the last time that a woman won back-to-back Grand Slams. That was at a time when Serena Williams was clearly the best player in the world and it’s that level of dominance that Simona Halep is targeting having won her first Grand Slam title last month.
That Halep has the game to win multiple Grand Slams has never been in doubt. The question that critics had was whether she’d ever have the mental strength to get the job done under pressure. The Romanian has worked very hard on that side of her game and showed great fighting spirit to come from a set down against Sloane Stephens.
That win will give her huge confidence as she returns to Wimbledon where it took a world class performance from Johanna Konta to knock her out last year.
The Achilles issue that forced Halep to withdraw from Eastbourne has seen her price drift with the bookies but it doesn’t appear to be too bad as she’s been putting the work in at the Wimbledon practice facilities. At $13 with Crownbet, Halep looks too big a price to ignore.
