Betting Tennis: 2014 Wimbledon Championship

Wimbledon, the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament will kick off on Monday, June 23, 2014, and end on Sunday, July 6, 2014. The third Grand Slam tournament will feature some of the best tennis players on the ATP tour, and fans will gather to the All England Club, to see if there will be a first time winner like Andy Murray last year, or if a past winner will add another Wimbledon Championship to their trophy case.

Wimbledon is the third major tournament of the year, and the only Grand Slam that is still played on a grass surface; it is the only tournament that still requires its players to adhere to the strict dress code of all-white clothing, which adds to some of its prestige.

As usual, the favorites to win the tournament are some of the top ranked tennis players in the world, but sometimes, like in 2001, when Goran Ivanisevic won it, an unranked player can crash the finals, and win it all, which adds more excitement to the championship.

This year, the favorites to win the tournament include a who's who in Men's tennis, like:

Roger Federer:

He is considered by many to be the greatest men's player ever, and one of the reasons is the fact that he has won Wimbledon a record 7 times, and is tied with another great Pete Sampras for that record. He is also the first player in the Open era, to win it five straight times. He isn't as dominant as he used to be, but he is still one of the best grass court players, and he will make any player that underestimates him pay dearly. He is the fourth ranked player going into the tournament.

Rafael Nadal:

He is the player that prevented Federer from winning six straight Wimbledons, when he defeated him at the 2008 finals, and has been Federer's main rival over the last few years. The Spaniard has been playing very well this year, after dealing with some injuries last year and just won his record 9th straight French Open trophy, which gave him 14 Grand Slam championships, three behind the record 17 held by Federer. Nadal was also the runner up at the Australian Open this year, and will try to make it to his third straight Grand Slam final this year.

Andy Murray:

He won the championship last year, becoming the first British player to win it in 77 years, and also making him a hero in the United Kingdom for the rest of his life. He will undoubtedly be the crowd favorite at this year's Wimbledon, not only because of what he did last year, because he has also been playing the best tennis of his career lately. After his win last year, he suffered a back injury, but he has been looking good lately, making it to the quarterfinal of the Australian Open, and the semifinals of the French Open. He will try to take the next step and make it to the Wimbledon finals, and try to win his third career Grand slam.

Novak Djokovic:

He is the fourth member of the group that has dominated men's tennis lately, Djokovic won Wimbledon in 2011, and finished second to Murray last year, and will be trying to get back in the winner's circle, by winning the tournament for the second time, and add to his six Grand Slam titles.

These are the favorites going into the tournament, one of them will likely be the winner, but don't be surprised if there is an upset or two at the tournament.
