Novak Djokovic has had a good year so far, winning big titles including the first Grand Slam of the year, Australian Open. Apart from the Grand Slam, Djokovic also won the Indian Wells Masters, Miami Masters, Monte Carlo Masters and Rome Masters.

Hence it is no surprise the top seed of Wimbledon is the favourite amongst the bookies to lift the third Grand slam of the year, despite an upset loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the French Open final. Primarily all the top betting sites have placed Djokovic and Andy Murray as the top two favourites.

And not to forget, of coursem the grass court's favourite son Roger Feder is also amongst one of the top favourites, who stand a chance of lifting the prestigious title. Federer has been one of the most successful player at Wimbledon, winning the Grand Slam seven times in his career so far.

SkyBet has put Djokovioc as 11/8 favourite, while Murray is 5/2. Bet365 has Djokovic at 5/4, 5/2 on Murray and 6/1 on Federer.

Another well known betting site, Paddy Power has placed Djokovic as the favourite with 11/8, followed by Andy Murray with 5/2 and Federer at 13/2.

But, those who have been following the sport of late and are interested in betting might go for some other contenders such as Stan Wawrinka, who won the French Open 2015 and has been playing some consistent tennis.

Another player to take a punt on might be Rafael Nadal, the two-time champion. While Nadal is having a forgettable year, there is no doubting his class. Bookmakers have him as an outside bet at 12/1, 14/1 and even as long as 17/1.

Skybet, sportingbet, coral have all placed Wawrinka at 16/1 on clinching the Wimbledon title.
