The 2017 Wimbledon Championships are one of the most watched Grand Slam tennis tournament. The main draw matched begin on July 3 and conclude on July 16. 7-time Gentlemen's Singles champion and favourite (according to many experts) Roger Federer plays tomorrow against world No. 84 Alexandr Dolgopolov. Let's see Wimbledon betting odds as well as Wimbledon predictions.
Federer won his 18th Grand Slam title in Melbourne, Australia in January 2017. In addition to this, he also won the opening two ATP Masters 1000 titles of the year in Miami and Indian Wells, being the No. 3 seed. Federer never dropped a set against Alexandr Dolgopolov in their 3 previous meetings. The last one took place at the 2016 Australian Open, and Wimbledon mens singles odds saw him as a favourite as well at that point.
Ukrainian Dolgopolov turned pro in 2006 (Roger Federer turned pro in 1998), and his Career W/L is 199/184. This is staggering when put head to head with Federer's Career W/L - 1104/247.
Federer heads into Wimbledon with momentum. He is 1/41 to win the match, while Alexandr Dolgopolov is 22/1. Bet365, SkyBet, SportingBet, BetVictor, LadBrokes, Coral, Winner all boast approximately the same Wimbledon mens odds.
In January 2012, the Ukrainians were already in the World Championship on the excellent 13th place and knocked quietly on the move into the top ten. But now they are far from it and Dolgopolov is only just within the top 100. His matches in this calendar year were not really outstanding. Although he won his third ATP title in Argentina in Buenos Aires in February (in the final he defeated Kei Nishikori in two sets), his season balance is even slightly negative, with twelve wins and 13 defeats. Wimbledon men's betting odds back him at 22/1 only.
The defeat of Roger Federer in Stuttgart against Tommy Haas was a big surprise. After all, the Swiss pro is known to be great on the grass and has not given up on the entire season because of just one missed opportunity. He started strongly against Haas, but could not keep up to this level and after the German started being more aggresive, he decided to save his energy for Wimbledon, at least this is what most Wimbledon tips provide.Federer won his 18th Grand Slam title in Melbourne, Australia in January 2017, and this is his greatest achievement this year.
The old Swiss star Roger Federer has never been a nuisance in the three duels with the Ukrainian Aleksandr Dolgopolov. 2010 in Basle, 2014 in Indian Wells and 2016 at the Australian Open, the Swiss tennis pro was able to get through without too much effort, and we believe he will do the same again.
