Wimbledon: Start date, how to watch, latest odds & more

Wimbledon is tennis' third Grand Slam of the year and the only one to take place on grass.

Spain's Carlos Alcaraz will be the defending men's champion for Wimbledon 2024, with Czech ace Marketa Vondrousova hoping to retain her women's singles crown.

Wimbledon dates

Wimbledon is traditionally held at the height of the British summer with this year's championships from the All-England Club being staged from Monday 1st July - Sunday 14th July.

Wimbledon times

The grounds at Wimbledon open from 10:00 every morning with play on the outside courts generally starting at 11:00.

Play on No.1 Court generally begins at 13:00 while play on Centre Court tends to start at 13:30.

Since Wimbledon is an outdoor event, there is scope for starting matches earlier on all courts should rain be a factor while play on the two show courts - No.1 and Centre - can run continuously because each has a roof.

Wimbledon venue

The Wimbledon Championships - as they are rightfully known - are held at the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, south-west London.

Wimbledon how to watch

Wimbledon can be viewed live on bet365's streaming service while there is also extensive coverage on both the BBC and Eurosport.

Who has won Wimbledon on the most occasions?

Roger Federer became the most decorated male singles player of all-time when winning Wimbledon for an eighth time in 2017, but the Swiss maestro will stay on that number after announcing his retirement in 2022.

Novak Djokovic, beaten finalist 12 months ago, is hot on Federer's heels, having won Wimbledon seven times, including on four of the last five occasions.

William Renshaw, around in the late 19th century, also won it seven times, along with Pete Sampras, who claimed his final Wimbledon title in 2000.

Martina Navratilova is the most decorated female player in the tournament's history, having won nine titles between 1978 and 1990. She has also won seven women's doubles titles and four mixed doubles crowns, taking her overall Wimbledon haul to 20.

Wimbledon odds

Defending champion Carlos Alcaraz is 13/8 favourite for the 2024 instalment of Wimbledon, ahead of the man he beat in last year's final, Djokovic, who is 7/4.

Italy's Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner is next best at 3/1 and then it's a huge jump to Daniil Medvedev at 16/1, Alexander Zverev at 16/1 and former champion Rafael Nadal at 16/1, though the Spaniard is a major doubt to even make it to London as he continues to manage his fitness levels.

In the women's singles Aryna Sabalenka is 3/1 favourite ahead of Iga Swiatek at 10/3 and Elena Rybakina at 9/2.

Defending champion Marketa Vondrousova is a 14/1 chance, while top British hope Emma Raducanu, the former US Open champion, is 33/1 despite being plagued by injuries.
