Wimbledon 2012 has reached the semi final stage with just Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga left standing. We have the latest LIVE odds on who is favourite with the bookmakers.
Between them, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have won 28 of the past 29 Grand Slams. So if you are a betting man then it’s very hard to look past any of these 3 players. In fact a bet on Roger Federer may have even seemed like a long shot when you consider that Nadal and Djokovic have shared the last 9 grand slam titles. But Nadal is no longer in the equation.
Despite Andy Murray being the best British player since Fred Perry, with Nadal, Djokovic and Federer ahead of him he seems as far away as ever from winning his first grand slam. However Nadal was in his half and he is now the favourite to win his half of the draw and so reach the final. He still remains third favourite behind Fed and Djok.
At the start of Wimbledon 2012 the bookmakers odds seen Djokovic as the favourite with Nadal close behind and Federer third favourite. With Nadal now eliminated, Djokovic is the overwhelming favourite the bookies!
Jo Wilfried Tsonga must be considered a real contender now. He should have beat Djokovic in Paris and reached the semi finals here last year, is this the time of Tsonga?
Eliminated players – All old news now!
Juan Martin Del Potro is the only man to break the Fed-Nadal-Djokovic grand slam dominance and although he has never shown great form on grass, he is a grand slam champion and therefore cannot be discounted.
Milos Raonic is one of those outside bets, the youngster is just making his way in the game and his final potential is still unknown, could he surprise them all at SW19 this year.
