Tennis tips for the Wimbledon men’s singles 2022

Novak Djokovic is the favourite to defend his title at SW19 for the 2022 event.

Look no further than Djokovic

Nobody other than Novak Djokovic {ODDS:770661010:4/5} has won the Wimbledon men’s singles title since 2017 and it’s difficult to imagine the Serb’s dominance ending in 2022.

The world No. 1 has won eight of the last 14 Grand Slams that he has entered, including seven of the last 10 away from the clay at Roland-Garros.

Despite the controversy surrounding Djokovic earlier in the year, he comes into this event in decent fettle, too.

He won the Italian Open last month before losing a thriller to ‘King of Clay’ Rafael Nadal at the French Open.

Most of all, though, his dominance at SW19 justifies his position at the top of the market, particularly with Daniil Medvedev – who beat him in last year’s US Open final – banned from competing.

He dropped just five sets in seven matches on his way to the title 12 months ago and a similar performance would see him close the gap on Rafael Nadal at the top of the all-time men’s Grand Slams list.

Any other value

Second-favourite Matteo Berrettini {ODDS:770661011:11/2} was beaten by Djokovic in last year’s final, so warrants his place in the market.

The Italian has reached the quarter-final and semi-final of subsequent slams, so will likely be involved in the latter stages here.

Better value may lie in longer prices, though.

Hubert Hurkacz {ODDS:770661020:16/1} was a semi-finalist at Wimbledon last season and comes here after convincingly winning the title at Halle last week, defeating Medvedev 6-1, 6-4 in the final.

The 2021 Miami Open winner has the skill and pedigree to go well.

US Open champion of 2014 Marin Cilic {ODDS:770661028:20/1} is also an experienced grass-court player and is in solid form.

The 33-year-old reached the semi-finals of the French Open earlier this month and is a four-time Wimbledon quarter-finalist – including a run to the final in 2017. He also looked in good form in reaching the semi-finals of Queen’s last week.

Two-time champion and home favourite Andy Murray, however, looks no sort of value at {ODDS:770661023:25/1}.
