After Djokovic, the odds favor Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Medvedev is 22-7 in 2021 with one win on tour. Tsitsipas is 39-9 with two titles this year so far.
Over on the women’s side Ashleigh Barty and Serena Williams are basically co-favored. Barty has three singles titles on the year with a 28-6 record. For Williams, she’s won this event seven times, but not since 2016. In 2021, Williams has seen limited action, so far going just 12-4.
Next on the odds board is Aryna Sabalenka, ranked fourth in the world, with a 27-9 record and two titles in 2021. Her career is undoubtfully on the rise, though she’s never made it past the round of 64 at Wimbledon. In fact, her best showing at any grand slam in her career is still only the round of 16.
