Novak Djokovic Wimbledon Odds: Super Serb 5/2 for eighth Wimbledon title

It’s unusual that we head into Wimbledon fortnight and Novak Djokovic has yet to win a tournament in 2024 prior to the third Grand Slam of the year.

The Serbian star has lost top spot in the ATP Rankings and heads to London looking to claim his eighth SW19 title.

Djokovic has been battling to return to full fitness ahead of the third Grand Slam event of the year but will be desperate to prove that he is still the man to beat and is 5/2 to claim the title at SW19.

Injury concerns looming over Djokovic

Having pulled out of his French Open quarter-final due to injury, there were some doubts if Djokovic would be able to compete at Wimbledon.

The 24-time Grand Slam champion was forced to undergo a minor operation on his knee, which saw him withdraw from the clay-court event.

Djokovic, who is seeded two at SW19, has not played any grass-court tournaments in the build up to Wimbledon, although his experience of the courts still makes him a major contender.

The 37-year-old, who had won four consecutive Wimbledon titles prior to last year, has yet to win a tournament in 2024.

He will though be in the other half of the draw to defending champion Carlos Alcaraz, who will be seeded three at this year’s Championship.

Czech test first for Novak

Djokovic has been drawn to face Vit Kopriva of the Czech Republic in the first round, with his opponent playing in the main draw for the first time.

The 27-year-old has never been ranked inside the world’s top 100 and is currently 123rd, winning just one of his five matches on the ATP Tour this year.

This will be the first time the two players have met on court and Kopriva is 18/1 to pull off a massive surprise and beat the 2022 champion.

Although Djokovic would avoid Alcaraz until the final, he is in the same half of the draw as fourth seed Alexander Zverez.

The German – 14/1 to win the title - is still seeking his first Grand Slam success but reached the final of the French Open, where he lost a five-set thriller to Alcaraz.

Age against Djokovic hopes

One stat that will be used through Djokovic’s time in the tournament will be the fact that he’s looking to equal the eight men’s singles titles won by Roger Federer.

The Swiss ace leads the way on that front and he is also the oldest player to lift the famous golden trophy on Centre Court.

Federer and Djokovic also hold the record for being the oldest players to win the Wimbledon men’s singles, both taking the title at the age of 35.

Two years on and with younger players establishing themselves in Grand Slam events, this looks a tougher assignment than ever for Djokovic.

The Serbian – 3/1 to win gold at the 2024 Olympics – could face a British opponent in round two if he beats Kopriva.

Wildcard Jacob Fearnley faces Spanish qualifier Alejandro Moro Canas and will know that victory could see him feature on a showcourt for the first time.
