Federer takes over as Wimbledon favourite

Six-time Gentlemen’s Singles winner is being tipped this year to equal a record held by Pete Sampras by collecting a seventh individual title.

Wednesday 29th June 2011



The Gentlemen’s Singles competition at the 125th edition of the Wimbledon Championships is now down to the quarter-finals stage and Roger Federer is being listed as favourite just in advance of defending champion Rafael Nadal. Federer has won the Gentlemen’s Singles competition at Wimbledon on six occasions including as recently as 2009 and is set to face off against French competitor Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for the right to meet either Australian qualifier Bernard Tomic or Serbian contender Novak Djokovic on the semi-finals. VictorChandler.com has Federer at odds of 11/8 to take down a seventh Wimbledon title this year while Bwin.com is going for 8/5. The Swiss competitor would tie a record jointly held by Pete Sampras and William Renshaw if he was to succeed in collecting a seventh Gentlemen’s Singles title at Wimbledon with punters able to get odds of 13/8 at WilliamHill.com, StanJames.com, SkyBet.com, PaddyPower.com, bet365.com and Totesport.com on the 29-year-old doing just that this year. Similarly, Sportingbet.com has odds of 17/10 that Federer will triumph over all this year in southwest London just in advance of Betfair.com and Betdaq.com with 87/50 and 888Sport.com, Betfred.com, Coral.co.uk, Intertops.com and BlueSq.com listing 7/4. A bit longer, BoyleSports.com and WBX.com currently show Federer at odds of 9/5 to win it all this year before 32RedBet.com offering 11/6. For his part, Nadal went into this year’s Wimbledon tournament as hot favourite to repeat his Gentleman’s Singles success from last year with some bookmakers offering him at odds as short as 17/10. However, the Spaniard struggled to defeat both Gilles Muller from Luxembourg and Argentinean Juan Martin Del Potro in earlier rounds and must now face American number-one Mardy Fish. If Nadal makes it past the current world number- nine, he will then face either British favourite Andy Murray or fellow countryman Feliciano Lopez in the semi-finals. BlueSq.com, 888Sport.com, WilliamHill.com, SkyBet.com, Intertops.com and BoyleSports.com currently show Nadal at odds of 9/4 to win a third Wimbledon title this year in advance of ToteSport.com with 12/5 and Bwin.com and SportingBet.com offering 5/2. Further down the spectrum, Bet365.com, VictorChandler.com, StanJames.com, BetFred.com, PaddyPower.com and Coral.co.uk are going with odds of 11/4 that Nadal win triumph in SW19 before BetDaq.com and WBX.com listing 143/50 and Betfair.com and 32Redbet.com showing 3/1.
