Wimbledon 2022 Live Stream, Betting Odds, and Predictions

Wimbledon 2022

It is that time of the year when tennis comes home, to the retractable grass courts at the All England Club in London. The 135th edition of the Championships, a.k.a. Wimbledon, is underway and will culminate with the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s finals to be held on the second weekend of July. Fans will snack on strawberries and cream on the stands and watch as the elite of the sport compete for the most prestigious tennis trophy, donning all-whites.

The grass will miss eight-time champion Roger Federer. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal start as the favourites. The former is the defending champion, whereas the latter is coming off a record-extending victory in the French Open. The Spaniard now has 22 Grand Slam triumphs to his name. He could very well be headed for a calendar slam, a feat no player has pulled off in over half a century.

Much to the disappointment of the fans, the tournament will not feature the World No.1 and No.2 in the Gentlmen’s category. Russian players have been banned from the tournament, as have Belarusian ones, on account of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. That means no World No. 1 Daniil Medvedev and no eighth-ranked Andrey Rublev.

Second-ranked Alexander Zverev has been forced out of the tournament as he is yet to recover from the ligament damage he sustained in the French Open semi-final clash against Rafael Nadal. Djokovic and Nadal are the top seeds, and if they meet for the 60th time, it will be in the final. Another interesting plot is the return of Serena Williams. Without a competitive match in a year and currently ranked 1204th, the seven-time champion will be hoping for a historic victory in the women’s category.

Top-seed Iga Swiatek is on a 35-match win streak. The 21-year-old arrives in London having bagged her second French Open title. Defending champion Ashleigh Barty retired earlier this year, while Naomi Osaka has pulled out due to injury. For the first time in Wimbledon history, 10-point tie breaks will be in place. BettingPremier‘s take on the major matchups will follow.
