Wimbledon Men's Singles: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Jannik Sinner claimed his first title as world number one with victory over Hubert Hurkacz at the Halle Open last week and Racing Post’s Aaron Ashley thinks the impressive Italian will take some stopping at Wimbledon.

Sinner won the Australian Open in January and was a semi-finalist at the French Open earlier this month, having lost out in five thrilling sets to fierce rival Carlos Alcaraz.

That pair have a fledgling rivalry and are expected to dominate men’s tennis for years to come, so many will be hoping that they lock horns again in the final four at the All England Club.

With those two and Daniil Medvedev all drawn in the top half, second seed Novak Djokovic will fancy his chances of securing a 25th Grand Slam title and his eighth win at Wimbledon.

However, there is still plenty of competition to the Serb with French Open runner-up Alexander Zverev, in-form Pole Hurkacz and big-serving American Taylor Fritz just three dangerous lurkers

Jannik Sinner to win - 13/8

Many may feel that siding with seven-time Wimbledon winner Djokovic is the right thing to do, with the Serb avoiding Sinner and Alcaraz until the final, but any value in doing so has well and truly gone.

Djokovic has made five straight Wimbledon finals and has a nice early draw to contend with, but there is a nagging doubt that the 37-year-old is on a steep decline while injuries have caused havoc to his season.

Djokovic is yet to make a single final on the ATP Tour this season from six tournament appearances and may be worth opposing completely.

The draw hasn’t been so kind to Sinner but, even so, he is an extremely difficult man to oppose having won 38 of his 41 matches this year.

The Italian has been the player of the season by a long way, having clinched four titles which includes the Australian Open, and he has a game that is perfect for the grass.

Sinner made the semi-final last year, losing to Djokovic, but his breakthrough success Down Under has taken him to new heights.

While he warmed up for Wimbledon with a grass-court title in Halle, Alcaraz was a second-round casualty in his Queen’s Club defence against British star Jack Draper.

Sinner looks set for a tough second-round clash with fellow Italian Matteo Berrettini but he is not in the same shape as when finishing runner-up at Wimbledon three years ago.

But coming through a battle may actually stand him in good stead and from there things get easier, until that mammoth semi-final showdown with Alcaraz.

However, the Italian won in four sets in their only grass-court encounter at Wimbledon two years ago and, if anything, is a far more complete player now than he was then.

Hubert Hurkacz to win / each-way - 16/1

With Djokovic looking like a vulnerable favourite in the bottom half of the draw, there are reasons to oppose him and the ultra-consistent Hurkacz should be the first port of call.

Hurkacz was beaten by Sinner in the Halle Open final most recently but that form looks strong and it was a contest settled by fine margins - the Italian prevailed 7-6 7-6 with no breaks of serve.

The Pole is up to a career high ranking of seven and he is starting to go deep in the majority of Grand Slams, having made the quarter-final of the Australian Open in January before a fourth-round run on his weakest surface at the French Open.

Hurkacz did make the semi-final at Wimbledon in 2021 and he is playing even better now, which must make him a threat in an open part of the draw.

The 27-year-old is coming into his peak years and, while a quarter-final encounter with Djokovic is clearly a test, it may be the only obstacle standing between him and a maiden Grand Slam final.

Last year they met in the last 16 and Djokovic prevailed in four sets but two of those were tiebreaks, suggesting there may not be too much between them at this current time in their careers.

Sebastian Korda to win / each-way - 40/1

At bigger odds, a chance should also be taken on big-serving American Sebastian Korda, who clearly thrives under these conditions.

Korda was a first-round casualty at the All England Club last year but he arrives in better touch this time around, having finished runner-up to Alex De Minaur in the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships in the Netherlands.

The 23-year-old then made the semi-final at Queen’s Club on the back of that and it is not like he hasn’t gone deep in Grand Slam events in the past.

Korda was an Australian Open quarter-finalist last season and he looks to have landed in a decent mini-section of the draw as sixth seed Andrey Rublev is in terrible form and Stefanos Tsitsipas has yet to show a liking for the grass.

It is easy to see him making the quarter-finalist at the very least, which means he can outrun odds of 40/1.
