2023 Wimbledon Recap
In a historic Wimbledon men’s singles final, Novak Djokovic and world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz clashed, each with their own momentous goals. Alcaraz, the 20-year-old Spaniard, sought his first All England Club title, while Djokovic aimed to equal Roger Federer’s record of eight SW19 crowns. In a remarkable display, Alcaraz emerged victorious in an unforgettable five-set battle, claiming his maiden Wimbledon championship and second Grand Slam title. The magnitude of Alcaraz’s achievement cannot be understated, as he handed Djokovic his first Centre Court defeat in over a decade, ending a streak that dated back to his loss against Andy Murray in 2013. The final score stood at 1-6, 7-6(6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4, etching Alcaraz’s name into tennis history.
- Carlos Alcaraz becomes the third youngest player in the Open Era to win his first Men’s Singles title at Wimbledon, behind Boris Becker (1985) and Björn Borg (1976).

- Alcaraz becomes the second player to defeat Novak Djokovic in a five-set Grand Slam final, following in the footsteps of Andy Murray at the 2012 US Open.

How to bet on Wimbledon?
Betting on Wimbledon comes in many markets. The most common and widely available one is the outrights market. This is where you bet on which tennis player will win the Wimbledon tournament. You can find these odds open as early as when the previous tournament ends.
After Wimbledon’s draw has been revealed, we can start betting on the pre-match odds. These are the game handicap, moneyline, and total. The handicap is akin to point spreads in football: It refers to how many games by which the player will win. The bet wins if the player wins the match after their game handicaps are deducted or added.
Moneyline is more straightforward: bet on which player will win the match. And total is where you bet on whether the combined games between the two players will go over or under the bookmaker’s total.
We can also bet on first-set odds. This is akin to a moneyline for the match but only deals with the first set.
Occasionally, we can also find prop bets for Wimbledon. These prop bets include specific outcomes such as the round of elimination for a player or how many aces will be served during a tennis match. Find these odds quickly as they are not on the board as long as our more traditional markets.
