WIMBLEDON: DJOKOVIC FAVOURITE TO TOPPLE FED
The grass courts of Wimbledon have been hallowed turf for Roger Federer, but bookmakers William Hill put Novak Djokovic as the 4/5 favourite to succeed in Sunday’s Men’s Final.
Federer is seeking a record eighth title at the All England Club, which would make him the most successful Wimbledon Champion of all-time, an honour he currently shares with Pete Sampras.
Federer is the outsider for the Final with William Hill at 11/10.
“Roger Federer is the king of Wimbledon, but Novak Djokovic is in brilliant form and the man to beat,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
William Hill are also offering a number of specials, but perhaps the one all tennis fans will be cheering for is a five set thriller, at odds of 5/2.
William Hill have taken more bets on Roger Federer, but more money on Novak Djokovic.
“It looks like there are plenty of punters cheering on Roger, but the bigger bets are on Novak.”
For the bookmakers, Djokovic is the worst result, as a well-backed favourite before the competition started.
