Wimbledon betting tips: American pair can serve it up to market leaders

The 136th edition of the Wimbledon Championships begins on Monday and, when it comes to the men's singles tournament, everyone is asking the same question: who can stop Novak Djokovic?

Setting the scene…..

Djokovic has claimed the first two legs of the calendar Grand Slam after wins at the Australian Open and French Open, pulling one clear of Rafael Nadal by winning a men's record 23rd singles title in Paris. He is 8/13 to claim a fifth successive Wimbledon crown.

Challengers to Djokovic's grass dominance appear thin on the ground but one man stands out from the rest. 

Carlos Alcaraz, the Spanish sensation who showcased his grass credentials by winning the Queen's Club title last weekend, is rated as the biggest danger and is available at 10/3 to end Djokovic's All England Club run.

The best of the rest appears to be Daniil Medvedev, who is the 16/1 third favourite, while leading British hopes Andy Murray and Cameron Norrie can be backed at 40/1 and 60/1.

Sebastian Korda to win Wimbledon @ 33/1

The top two in the betting are going to take a lot of beating at Wimbledon but one Queen's victory does not make Alcaraz a certainty to reach a grass final in the best-of-five arena and the Spaniard is worth taking on in the top half.

There are a number of potential challenges lurking in the early rounds for Alcaraz and that could free up the top half for Sebastian Korda, who looks capable of building on his own run to the last four.

Korda has struggled for form and fitness since reaching the fourth round on his only previous Wimbledon appearance but that highlighted his ability on the surface and he's a danger to all if healthy.

A first-round tie with Jiri Vesely should help the Floridian ease his way into the tournament and while he will have to play against the crowd if he meets one of Cameron Norrie or Andy Murray, he has little to fear from a section where most of the seeds are better on other surfaces.

Joe Champion's Tip:

Korda reached the Queen's Club semi-finals, losing out to Carlos Alcaraz, but that was a step in the right direction for a player who possesses serious talent. He looks made for grass and, at odds of 33/1, can make a deep run should Alcaraz fail to live up to his billing.

Taylor Fritz to win Wimbledon @ 33/1

If Djokovic does not emerge triumphant in the bottom half, it could be because Taylor Fritz has found his form at the right time with the American rated one of the more likely candidates to trouble the Serb.

Like Korda, Fritz has an excellent grass-court playing style, which he deployed to great effect when reaching the quarter-finals last season, where he really should've beaten an ailing Nadal.

That was a disappointing end to a promising fortnight for the American, who is hoping to establish himself as a regular threat in Grand Slams going forward.

While Fritz's form is not quite where he would want it to be, the draw has been kind to him and he might not face a serious test until a potential fourth-round meeting with Jannik Sinner.

Joe Champion's Tip:

Recent results have not gone Fritz's way and Djokovic lurks in the bottom half, but the American displayed his grass ability when reaching the quarter-finals last season and there's no doubt he's a threat at 33/1 if he can find his rhythm.

Alex de Minaur to win Wimbledon @ 50/1

Alex de Minaur found only Alcaraz too strong at Queen's and the Aussie has the tools to go deep in the Wimbledon draw having added more power to his already solid game over recent months.

One big criticism of De Minaur has been an inability to hit winners and finish points but he has definitely improved on that score and his court speed is a serious asset on the quick courts of the All England Club.

De Minaur reached the fourth round last season, where he suffered a shock loss to Cristian Garin, but his Queen's performances over lesser opponents suggest he's unlikely to make the same mistake again this season.

The 24-year-old opens up against Kimmer Coppejans and he could go far if getting through a second-round tie with either Matteo Berrettini or Lorenzo Sonego.

Joe Champion's Tip:

De Minaur reached the Queen's Club final, losing out to Alcaraz, but that was a show of promise for the 50/1 shot, who has enjoyed himself on the grass in the past and looks to have added a bit of power to his game in recent months.
