Wimbledon Championships

The 2024 Wimbledon Championships runs from July 1 – 15th, 2024 (Aust. time) at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London

Wimbledon is the third of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments and follows the Australian Open and French Open Majors. The fourth Grand Slam Major is the US Open. Held in London at the all England Club and also known as The Championships, Wimbledon is the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world.

Played on grass courts, a much faster surface than the red clay courts of the French Open, the Wimbledon Championships were first contested in 1877.

Over £50,000,000 (over AUS$94.9 million) in prize money is shared between the Wimbledon winners each season, which traditionally runs over two weeks from the last Monday in June in the UK, which is the last Sunday in June Australian time. The tournament always ends on a Sunday in July culminating with the Men’s and Ladies’ Singles Finals.

The only remaining Grand Slam played on a grass surface after the Australian Open was switched to a hardcourt in 1988, Wimbledon on-court advertising is non-existent but betting on the tournament is still big business! It’s not all strawberries and cream and Royal patronage however. Players used wooden rackets up until 1987, and in 1995 Tim Henman made Wimbledon history for all the wrong reasons becoming the first player ever to disqualified from the tournament after striking a ball girl on the head.

As with all the other tennis Grand Slam tournaments the major divisions of Wimbledon are the Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles (known as the Ladies’ Singles), Doubles and Mixed Doubles. The competition is steeped in history and tradition and all Wimbledon players are required to wear white.

It is world No. 3 vs world No. 2 in the 2024 Wimbledon Men’s Singles final with Carlos Alcaraz to face Novak Djokovic in the decider for the second year running.

Reigning Wimbledon champion Alcaraz is favourite to go back-to-back in the prestigious Grand Slam when he plays seven-time winner Djokovic on Sunday night (Australian time).

Alcaraz – fresh off his French Open success last month – defeated Daniil Medvedev in his semi final, while Djokovic was near flawless when easily accounting for Lorenzo Musetti in the last four to make his way to yet another Wimbledon final.

Barbora Krejčíková (31) vs Jasmine Paolini (7)

World No. 31 Barbora Krejčíková chases her first Grand Slam victory since the 2021 French Open when she takes on world No. 7 Jasmine Paolini in the 2024 Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles final on Saturday night (Australian time).

Krejčíková, who had not been previously been past the fourth round at Wimbledon, is favourite to continue her surprise performance that has seen her put behind her recent poor form leading up to the tournament.

She comes in with the confidence of a huge semi-final upset when coming from behind to defeat world No.4 Elena Rybakina.

Italian player Paolini meanwhile had to fight hard in a lengthy thriller when beating Donna Vekic 2-6 6-4 7-6 to play in her second Grand Slam final on the trot after she was runner-up in the French Open last month.

Wimbledon Betting Odds

Wimbledon betting is very popular over the 14 days of play during June – July every year. The most popular Wimbledon odds are those on the Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Singles winners. Early Outright Wimbledon Winners odds are open months in advance of the tournament with all-in prices quoted for headline players in both the Men’s and Women’s (Ladies’) divisions.

There are multiple markets open on all Wimbledon matches across the Main Events and popular exotic bet types include set-by-set tennis predictions, correct score betting odds, whether there will be a tie-break in the first set, Player 1 and Player 2 markets, the first player to serve a game to love, second set winner betting and who will break first serve.

A notable Wimbledon betting tip is to look at form lines outside of World Rankings as in the Open Era (from 1968) six of the Ladies’ Singles Wimbledon winners never reached World No. 1.

The Wimbledon Championships of 2024 will be underway from late June and early betting markets will be released early in the year on the Men’s and Women’s Singles Winners.

Past Winners of Wimbledon

Wimbledon history dates right back to 1877, but what is known as the Open Era didn’t begin until 1968. Plenty of past Wimbledon Winners have etched their name in the tennis record books during that time at the coveted English tournament.

Men’s Wimbledon Champions

World No. 1 ranked players have a strong strike rate looking at the Men’s Singles Wimbledon winners list. Over half of the Open Era Men’s Singles winners reached the pinnacle of the tennis rakings.

During the Open Era of Wimbledon, Roger Federer holds the record of most Men’s Singles titles with eight thanks to his 2017 success. Federer also shares a record five consecutive Open Era Wimbledon titles from 2003 – 2007 along with Björn Borg from Sweden.

Federer also holds his own unique page in the Wimbledon history books as the only player in both the Amateur and Open Era to reach the finals 12 times for eight wins and four losses as of 2019 when runner-up to Novak Djokovic.

Andy Murray’s 2013 Men’s Singles win at Wimbledon broke a lengthy drought for the local British players and was the first for England since Fred Perry (1934, 1935, 1936) giving the UK a total of 36 All-Time titles in this division. Murray won again in 2016 to boost the UK’s total to 37. This is the most of any country followed by the USA (33) and Australia (21).

The last Australian Gentlemen’s Men’s Singles winner at Wimbledon was Lleyton Hewitt (2002). In 2022 Nick Kyrgios became the first Australian since Mark Philippoussis, who lost to Roger Federer in 2003, to make the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final. He lost to three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic.
