Tennis’ oldest and most famous tournament gets underway on June 27th with some big names returning to the field.

Will Novak Djokovic win a fourth title in a row, can Rafa Nadal win a first Wimbledon title since 2010, or will we see a miracle return for Serena Williams or Andy Murray?

Ahead of a big summer for British tennis we take a look at the best players and preview the action from what promises to be a thrilling tournament.

Djokovic returns to defend his crown

Having won the tournament for a sixth time in 2021 Djokovic will think he has a good chance at making it seven this year. He comes into the tournament as the world number three and clear favourite at 5/6 to take home the trophy with the two players ahead of him in the rankings not playing this year.

Having missed out on the Australian Open and losing in the quarter-final of the French Open, Djokovic will be hoping to make Wimbledon his first Grand Slam title of 2022. His long-time rival Rafael Nadal has won both Grand Slams in 2022, claiming his 14th French Open title in June.

Nadal will be hoping to make it three out of three in 2022 but grass is not his favoured surface. In 14 attempts the Spaniard has only won Wimbledon twice with his last title coming in 2010. This sees him head to Wimbledon as just the third favourite to win the tournament at 13/2.

Djokovic’s opponent in last year’s final Matteo Berrettini is the second favourite to win the tournament at 11/2. The Italian has never won a Grand Slam and he will be hoping to make Wimbledon his first.

How will the Brits fare?

Men’s British number one Cameron Norrie finds himself seeded ninth as a result of the absence of World number one Daniil Medvedev and World number two Alexander Zverev. Norrie had his best Wimbledon campaign last year as he made it to the third-round and he will be hoping to make a run deeper into the tournament this year. Norrie is an outsider for the title at 55/1 to win it this year.

Britain’s male favourite at 22/1 is two-time champion Andy Murray. The former British number one has had good preparation for Wimbledon after reaching the final of the Stuttgart open earlier his month, beating World number five Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-final. British fans will be hoping their hero can produce a performance akin to his former self and bring the Wimbledon title back to Britain.

Emma Raducanu burst onto the scene after reaching the third-round at last years’ tournament and then going on to win the US Open. The Brit is the 10th seed for the Ladies’ Singles Championship and will be hoping to put her recent poor form and injuries behind her. A 16/1 chance to win, she will be hoping to make it a tournament to remember.

Swiatek favourite for the Ladies title

Ladies’ world number one Iga Świątek already has the French Open title under her belt in 2022 and is favourite to win her third Grand Slam title in SW19. She played her first Wimbledon last year, making the fourth-round, and as the 6/4 favourite to win she will hope to go a lot further this year.

American Cori Gauff is second favourite at 10/1 to take home the Ladies Singles title. She announced herself on the big stage at Wimbledon in 2019 when she beat five-time champion Venus Williams in the first round.

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams will compete in her first Grand Slam of 2022 this summer. At 16/1 her reputation helps her to be one of the favourites and she will hope to live up to that and go far in this year’s tournament.
