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.

The men's title has been dominated by Novak Djokovic in recent years, with the Serb winning on seven occasions and in each of the four last stagings.

Things have been a little less straightforward in the women's competitions since Serena Williams' dominance came to an end in 2016, with each of the last five editions won by someone different.

Kazakhstani Elena Rybakina is the defending champion having come from a set down against Ons Jabeur to secure her first Wimbledon title in 2022.

When is Wimbledon?

Wimbledon is held every summer with the 2023 instalment getting under way on Monday 3rd July. England's showpiece tennis event takes place over a two-week period with the men's final being held on Sunday 16th July, 24 hour after the women's showpiece.

Where is Wimbledon?

The Wimbledon Championships is widely regarded as the most prestigious of all four Grand Slam tournaments and it takes place at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London.

It has been held there since 1877 and is played on outdoor grass courts, with retractable roofs over the two main courts first introduced in 2019. Wimbledon traditions include a strict all-white dress code for competitors

Can I watch Wimbledon?

Yes, Wimbledon will be aired on the BBC and Eurosport, while it can also be viewed live on bet365's Sports Live Streaming service.

How many times has Wimbledon taken place?

Wimbledon first started in 1877 and there have been 135 editions of the tournament. The 2020 Championships were cancelled due to COVID-19, the first time the event hasn't gone ahead since World War II.

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.

However, Djokovic is hot on the heels of the Swiss star, having won it seven times, including on each of the last four 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 history, having won nine titles between 1978 and 1990.

Helen Wills Moody is an eight-time winner, while Dorothea Lambert Chambers, Steffi Graf and Serena Williams all have seven victories to their name.

Who are the favourites for Wimbledon?

Djokovic, in pursuit of an eighth Wimbledon title and a fifth consecutive one, has been installed as the 11/10 pre-tournament favourite to secure another victory at the All England Club.

Rising Spanish star Carlos Alcaraz is the 13/2 second favourite with Matteo Berrettini at 7/1 and Rafael Nadal priced up at 8/1.

Last year's runner-up Nick Kyrgios is rated at 14/1, whilst home favourite Andy Murray can be backed at 33/1 to reclaim the title he twice captured in 2013 and 2016.

The women's betting is dominated by Poland's Iga Swiatek, who is the reigning French Open and US Open champion. The 21-year-old is yet to progress beyond Round 4 in London, but is, at present, the market leader for 2023.

2022 winner Rybakina is priced up at 12/1 to retain her Wimbledon singles crown, whilst runner-up Jabeur can be backed at 9/1.

Others high on the beeting for the 'Outright Winner' market include Naomi Osaka at 10/1 and Belgium's former champion Simona Halep at 12/1. Emma Raducanu is also amongst the leading packed, at 20/1.
