Wimbledon, one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world, has witnessed some remarkable Male Grand Slam Singles Winners throughout its history. From legends like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to icons like Bjorn Borg and Pete Sampras, the tournament has seen an incredible display of skill and determination.
This year It’s no surprise that Novak Djokovic is a firm favorite to win the 2023 Wimbledon Champions that begin in London this week. Oddsmakers have positioned the 23-time Major champion atop their list of prices to win and reign supreme at the All-England Club once more.

Djokovic to win Wimbledon 2023
Looking to make more history with a men’s record-extension of 24 Grand Slam victories, the Serb is no stranger to triumphing in the London competition as he’ll enter this year’s edition of Wimbledon after winning the previous four titles at the All-England Club.
As a four-time defending champion at Wimbledon, he hasn’t tasted defeat since 2017. And after retiring halfway through a quarter-final meeting versus Tomas Berdych, defeat hasn’t been an option as he has stayed unbeaten at this tournament ever since.
Oddsmakers have given punters a price of -150 on the Serbian tennis superstar to defend his crown successfully, as the top-rated sports betting sites believe he’ll make history by matching Rodger Federer’s record while claiming Margaret Court’s all-time Grand Slam record. Success at Wimbledon would move Djokovic level with Rodger Federer’s eye-watering record of eight Wimbledon titles.
However, the bookmaker’s odds aren’t aligned with the current ATP rankings, and a fearsome challenger in Carlos Alcaraz is the most capable of preventing Djokovic’s history-making attempt.

Alcaraz to win Wimbledon 2023
Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz won the Queen’s championship most recently when he defeated Alex De Minaur 6-4, 6-4, and notably obtained his first grasscourt title. The victory moved the Spaniard into the world’s No.1-ranking position, supplanting Djokovic’s position as the top seed at Wimbledon.
While sportsbooks still give Djokovic the edge over the No. 1 seed, Alcaraz has faith in his ability to cause an upset.
“I have a lot of confidence right now coming into Wimbledon,” Alcaraz commented. “I ended the week playing at a high level. So, right now, I feel like one of the favorites, you know, to win Wimbledon.
“But honestly, I have to get more experience on grass. Even [though] I won the title, I’ve just played 11 matches in my career on grass, so I have to get more experience, more hours. But obviously, after beating amazing guys, great players, and the level that I played, I consider myself one of the favorites or one of the players to be able to win Wimbledon.”
Wimbledon 2023: Outside contenders
The attention is naturally shining on the world’s number one and two seed, but former World No.1 Danill Medvedev cannot be counted out. He’s currently paired with outsider odds of +1200, likely due to his past performances at Wimbledon, including a fourth-round elimination from last year’s tournament. Despite his undesirable results on grass, the Russian standout has been one of the most consistent players this season.
Jannik Sinner trails just behind Medvedev with odds of +1400. Still, the injury-prone Italian retired from the Halle Open last week due to physical concerns, which has been an ongoing issue throughout the year.
Nick Kyrgios boasting odds of +2500 is an attractive price, especially considering he reached last year’s final and only faltered versus Djokovic. But similar to Sinner, the Aussie has dealt with injuries and only just returned to action earlier this month, and subsequently lost in the first round at the Boss Open. He then withdrew from two upcoming tournaments on his schedule, and his trip to Wimbledon was marked as questionable whether he’d appear whatsoever.
We must also give an honorable mention to Britain’s own Andy Murray. He’s the lone Wimbledon champion in the draw besides Djokovic, and despite failing to provide much significance outside of the top rankings, his grass credentials make him a worthwhile outside bet at +3100.
