One of the most prestigious Wimbledon tennis tournaments in 2023 will start on July 3rd and end on July 16th. The bookmaker’s office Mostbet IN has already determined the favorites of this event in the men’s and women’s singles. Traditionally in recent years, the main favorite of the men’s singles is Novak Djokovic, but this year the Serbian will have many worthy opponents who can compete for victory in the tournament.

Of the 128 players in the Wimbledon main draw in singles, 104 tennis players advance to the main draw automatically based on world rankings. Sixteen of the remaining 24 places are determined by the results of the qualifying round, which is held immediately before the main tournament. The remaining eight places are awarded by the tournament committee to players for a variety of reasons, including local stars, young stars, or veteran players.

In this article, we will look at the top 5 Wimbledon 2023 favorites in the men’s singles, consider the odds of tennis players, taking into account the odds of the bookmakers.

Novak Djokovic: odds 1.98

Novak Djokovic defended his title in 2022 and in doing so took his 21st major title. Djokovic fought Nick Kyrgios in the final and won 4–6, 6–3, 6–4, 7–6. It was Djokovic’s seventh major singles title and his fourth consecutive Wimbledon win. In doing so, Djokovic became the fifth Open Era player to win four titles in a row at the same Major. Reaching the final, Djokovic set a record by playing his 32nd major men’s singles final.

World No 1 Novak Djokovic

Djokovic remains a bookmaker favorite and has won Wimbledon the last two times (in 2021 and 2022 the Serbian was also a favorite).

Considering the current form of the Serbian tennis player, as well as the fact that Djokovic won the Australian Open and Rolland Garros, it becomes clear why this tennis player is a favorite in the men’s singles. We agree with the opinion that most likely, Djokovic will be able to win the tournament once again.

Carlos Alcaraz: odds 4.55

Carlos Alcaraz is currently number one in the ATP rankings. The 19-year-old will be Spain’s main representative for the tournament as Rafael Nadal will not be taking part. Alcaraz has an impressive record and is expected to reach the semi-finals or go even further. He won the 2022 US Open and is in good shape so he will look forward to progressing in the tournament and looking to lift the trophy.

With five months to go until the end of 2023, Alcaraz has already won four titles. As a result, his chances of winning Wimbledon remain very high. At the moment, the Spaniard leads the ATP world rankings and is a pretty formidable force for any opponent.

Daniil Medvedev: coefficient 8.90

Daniil Medvedev returns to the tournament after his absence in 2022 due to a ban on Russian and Belarusian players. Medvedev will be motivated to continue the tournament and possibly even win the title as his Roland Garros ended for him after losing in the first round.

Daniil Medvedev started 2023 in great shape. He won three titles in three weeks in February and March and recorded his 3,000th career win at the Madrid Open in early May. If anyone can really challenge Novak Djokovic on grass, that player really is Daniil Medvedev.

Matteo Berretini: odds 12.70

Berrettini finished the year in 16th place, ranked 6th in the world after reaching the semi-finals of the Australian Open. Soon after, he announced that he was going to have surgery on his hand, but upon his return, Matteo still won two tournaments, in Stuttgart and London’s Queen’s Club.

Matteo Berettini

Matteo Berrettini has pulled out of Roland Garros due to injury but is expected to play at Wimbledon 2023. He missed Wimbledon 2022 due to testing positive for COVID-19. In 2021, he reached the final where he lost to Djokovic. Note that the chances of the Italian athlete this year will be really very high, and this is a good opportunity for fans of betting on high odds.

Yannick Sinner: odds 13.70

Sinner did not win a single Grand Slam tournament but reached the quarter-finals of all four major tournaments. Recall that last year, Yannick Sinner brilliantly beat Carlos Alcaraz with a score of 6-1, 6-4, 6(8)-7, 6-3 and reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon, where he met with Novak Djokovic. Subsequently, the Serbian tennis player became the champion, which means that Sinner only lost to the best player in the tournament.
