Novak Djokovic has completed half of a calendar-year Grand Slam after capturing both the Australian Open and French Open titles this year. Now he is looking forward to Wimbledon where he has won four consecutive championships despite being ranked number 2 behind Carlos Alcaraz. Djokovic continues his dominance even while being number 2 worldwide!

- Novak Djokovic -160
- Carlos Alcaraz +350
- Jannik Sinner +2000
- Daniil Medvedev +2500
- Alexander Zverev +3500

3-star value play: Carlos Alcaraz (+350)
Alcaraz may not have the greatest draw in the upper portion of his bracket; however, with only two top players competing at 160 points in men’s tennis right now (Djokovic has no value at 160) I will pick Alcaraz, as his talent knows no bounds; even in grass he quickly took down Queen’s Club just weeks prior. When in good physical shape Alcaraz can always be counted upon to give a strong performance at each tournament they attend.
2-star value play: Daniil Medvedev (+2500)
Medvedev on his own is in for an exceptional draw: as world no. three he falls within the top quartile (meaning it isn’t as tough as Djokovic), while Alcaraz’s draw is more difficult. Like Alcaraz, Medvedev doesn’t prefer grass courts but can use all surface types effectively when playing his game – just as Alcaraz did he has won majors while placing second three times at Slam tournaments; making a successful comeback this time in London seems likely.
1-star value play: Jannik Sinner (+2000)
Due to Sinner’s incessant physical condition, I considered skipping him altogether, however with odds of +2500 and an incredible draw I simply can’t beat him. At only 21 years old and an already impressive Grand Slam track record (he made the quarterfinals at Wimbledon where he defeated Djokovic two sets to one but couldn’t win), Sinner is on pace for 32-10 this year; climbing his way towards becoming one of the premier grass players second only to Djokovic himself!
Wimbledon Tennis Day 1 Predictions
Following Australian Open and French Open tournaments, Wimbledon 2023 | Latest news | LTA is upon us. From cream-topped strawberries and Pimm’s cocktails to well-known people in the Royal Box and grass court tennis action over the next two weeks – Wimbledon promises it all! Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek will both make an appearance, so let’s examine my top bets that can be placed during Day 1 Schedule as well as my options for outrights on both women’s and men’s sides of this third Grand Slam starting on Monday!
Stan Wawrinka +4 games over Emil Ruusuvuori (-114)
Wawrinka is an unprecedented three-time Grand Slam champion who has taken four matches against an inexperienced opponent, Ruusuvuori being just 11-11 on grass; all of his losses coming on this surface. Additionally, Wawrinka is two-time quarterfinalist at Wimbledon. Wawrinka remains one of the greatest players, but at 38 he’s well past his peak. But that doesn’t matter; he remains in the top 100 and boasts an unbeaten record during this period (15-12). Notable too is that Wawrinka played two five-setters at the French Open – beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas before losing in the final against Stan Wawrinka – which demonstrated his physical resilience at this point in his professional career. These matches highlighted why Ruusuvuori should consider this match a serious threat.
Magda Linette -1.5 games over Jil Teichmann (-114)
Odds-wise, this match-up appears alarmingly even. Linette stands as an underdog to Teichmann at just -140 on the moneyline with just 1.5 games in spread odds; on court I don’t believe it to be as even; Linette ranks over 100 places higher and has won 28 grass court matches to Teichmann’s four (#23 from #129). Additionally, Teichmann only boasts 4-10 victories during her entire grass court career while overall having posted 17-18 record. You should back Linette in this contest!
Alexander Bublik vs Mackenzie McDonald Over 38.5 games (-112)
McDonald is an underdog in this matchup, yet I believe he will win by a significant margin and anticipate an intense match-up. A score of 38.5 may seem low for a match featuring Bublik who is among the premier server on tour yet sometimes struggles in returning games; service breaks tend to be rare and nonexistent in his games and this holds especially true on grass surfaces; I doubt this match would end within three sets; any greater than this would extend much further into match play!
Wimbledon Tennis Day 2 Predictions
At Wimbledon tennis has officially kicked off at the All-England Club with Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek securing spots in both men’s and women’s two-round draws, respectively. On Tuesday’s third Grand Slam event will continue when women’s champion Elena Rybakina and men’s number one Carlos Alcaraz take to the courts – I scored an outstanding 3-0 score with my Day 1 Best Bets; now let’s review Day 2 best bets along with my top picks for outright betting both men’s and women’s teams!
Zhizhen Zhang +2.5 games over Botic van de Zandschulp (-111)
As was widely anticipated, Van de Zandschulp still has not recovered from his infamous clash with Holger Rune during the Munich final of the clay court swing in spring. It was perhaps one of the worst meltdowns ever witnessed in tennis, since Van de Zandschulp had competed multiple times for the title and earned four championship points which ultimately fell away – each point could have earned Van de Zandschulp his first ATP crown! Since that defeat he has gone on to lose five consecutive opening rounds – no reason for VDZ to continue with him; additionally Zhang presents formidable resistance allowing him to break this streak despite VDZ’s issues or VDZ’s difficulties.
Marc-Andrea Huesler -1 game over Yosuke Watanuki (-109)
Imagine having a left-handed player from Switzerland who can stand somewhere between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer; unfortunately Huesler doesn’t fit that description exactly, although he should still be considered one of the favorites to win his match. Huesler reached the second rounds in Hertogenboch and Stuttgart early in his grass-court season (qualifying successfully at Stuttgart), earning multiple victories on grass. Watanuki was also successful, though his victories weren’t particularly remarkable (most notable one against Feliciano Lopez who recently retired). Watanuki lost in Wimbledon qualifying, yet managed to secure an unlucky loss spot for the final draw despite failing to advance further than qualifying stage. I expect Huesler will win this one easily.
Parlay: Lorenzo Sonego over Matteo Berrettini and Lucia Bronzetti over Jaqueline Cristian (-105)
This bet boasts an Italian flavor with two Italians to win, yet one will lose. Sonego faces Berrettini in an all-competitive showdown between their fellow countrymen. Sonego recently defeated Berrettini 6-1, 6-2 on Stuttgart grass courts while Berrettini has not competed since that result; no reason exists for him to reverse the results on Tuesday due to repeated injuries that impede his play now.
