Wimbledon Betting Tips & Predictions for 2020
The 2020 edition of Wimbledon will be played in early part of July. What you will get below are the latest, match by match 2020 Wimbledon betting tips & predictions from our experts, factors to consider while betting on Wimbledon, the outright picks and odds along with the player list and schedule for 2020.
Novak Djokovic will kick-start the 2020 Wimbledon as the men’s singles defending champion, while in the women’s half, it is Simona Halep who would look to retain her crown.
Djokovic won his fifth Wimbledon crown by beating Roger Federer in the final in what is probably one of the matches of the decade while Halep overcame Serena Williams to lift her first title here.
It was a sweet win for Djokovic who was coming back from multiple issues including injury problems and wasn’t given that much of a chance for a win. Halep’s win wasn’t a surprise but she was one of the few women tennis players who looked like winning the title.

Wimbledon Betting Factors
Lack of Grass Practice
Wimbledon is one of the very few tournaments played on grass and it’s not a surface liked by all the top players. What makes it difficult is the lack of high quality matches on grass as a result of the lack of tournaments played on the surface because of the high cost associated with organising such tournaments.
Players have anywhere between one to two weeks of grass court practice before Wimbledon and usually most play in just one grass court competitions to get used to the conditions. This becomes even more difficult given the sharp contrast in the nature of courts players are attuned to before Wimbledon – more than two months of the slow-natured clay.
This is why it becomes very necessary to analyse not just how a player has performed in those couple of weeks before Wimbledon but his/her overall form and the other outings on grass in previous years.
Changing Courts & Balls
Once known as a tournament that was tailor-made for serve-and-volley players, Wimbledon has changed in its nature in that baseline players are slowly and steadily coming into their own. In fact, in this day and age of better racquet technology and slower courts, baseliners easily outnumber the serve and volley players.
While Wimbledon continues to have the fastest tennis courts among Grand Slam competitions, courts have become slower over the years and more so during the second week of the competition. As a result, while hard-serving players still hold an advantage, that could be nullified towards the later stages.
A change in the ball has also allowed play to slow down further while the grass used these days makes the bounce more consistent and higher, thereby reducing the advantage that some of the serve-specialists have. As a result, someone like John Isner, who has one of the best serves in the business, has made it past the third round at Wimbledon just once in his career (and he made the semifinal that year).
Analyse the Draw
It’s all good to look at the seeded players but remember the first point above about how some of the players don’t really prefer playing on grass too much. This adds to the probability of an upset loss of a seeded player early in the competition.
For instance, Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas, were all knocked out in the first round of the 2019 Wimbledon. Similarly, Ash Barty didn’t survive too long after having won the French Open earlier in the year. These are some of the gems you find on analysing the draw early in the tournament.
Watch Wimbledon Live Streams
One of the factors that no amount of analysis or statistics can help with is your own instinct. If you have followed the sport over the years, you obviously hold an edge but if you haven’t, watching the live streaming of tennis matches while indulging in in-play betting makes for a lot of sense.
And even if you aren’t going in for in-play betting, your overall outlook towards betting on Wimbledon or on any other tennis tournament changes as you follow the matches by watching the live streaming online.
Bookmakers like bet365 and Unibet offer these live streams for many tennis tournaments across the world including Wimbledon once you sign up with them and make a deposit (subject to geo-restrictions) and it always makes for a lot of sense to watch it live while betting on Wimbledon.
Keep in mind all these factors while betting on Wimbledon.
Top Wimbledon 2020 Contenders (Men’s Singles)
Current world number one Novak Djokovic seems to be the obvious favorite, having won the title five times, all in this decade, and looking at a third consecutive title in a row. With Djokovic’s body aging somewhat, and with the Next Generation getting stronger and stronger, it is only a matter of time before he will not be the invincible one that we have known him to be. But, as he has proven time and again, even when he is two championship points down against one of the best of all time, he can always spring back and turn it around. Until proven otherwise, Djokovic will likely begin every major tournament outside of clay as the favorite, if healthy.
It has seemed like it is his last Wimbledon coming up for a good portion of this decade, but yet he has proved us wrong time and time again. Coming up on 20 years since he defeated Pete Sampras in the fourth round on Manic Monday on Center Court, eight time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer continues to be a force on the grass courts of SW19. Having been one point away from the title on his serve this year, 2020 may truly be his last shot at the title as he will be approaching 39 years of age.
Two time Wimbledon winner Rafael Nadal has somehow not had the sort of luck at Wimbledon that the other members of the Big Three, Djokovic and Federer have had. Having won the epic 2008 final against Federer, and won the title in 2010, he has had injury issues and disappointing early losses to the likes of Dustin Brown, Steve Darcis, little known Nick Kyrgios and others at Wimbledon. With the courts slowing down every year and Nadal having made appropriate alterations to his game, the last two years have seen him lose to Djokovic and Federer respectively in close encounters in the semi-finals.
With the Next Gen evolving more every month, it is only a matter of time before they prove themselves at the Majors. Young Russian Medvedev came the closest to winning a Grand Slam final, coming back from two sets down to take Rafael Nadal to a fifth set in a tightly fought US Open final. Having won two Masters 1000 this year, and played fearlessly against the likes of Nadal and Djokovic, one can expect him to evolve and grow in confidence further in the first half of 2020 and be a force to reckon with, by Wimbledon.
When will Wimbledon 2020 be Played – Wimbledon Schedule & Dates
The 2020 edition of Wimbledon will begin from June 29 when the first round matches in both sections of the singles draw begin. The qualifiers will be played in the week leading up to the main draw, while the women’s singles and men’s singles final will be held on July 11 and July 12 respectively.
What Happened at the 2019 Wimbledon
In one of the greatest matches of all times, Djokovic edged past Federer in the men’s singles final to clinch the title in a pulsating title-decider. He won 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6, 13-12, after being down a couple of match-points on Federer’s serve. Earlier Federer had taken out Nadal in a four-set semi-final, while Djokovic was also stretched to four by Roberto Bautista-Agut.
Interestingly, only one other player among the top 20 seeds, Kei Nishikori managed to get to the quarterfinals, and none other from the top 14 got through even to the fourth round.
The women’s singles title was won by Simona Halep, who cruised past Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2 to deny the American a chance to equal Margaret Court’s 24 Grand Slam titles. Halep had earlier run past Elina Svitolina, dropping the same number of games in the semifinal too, while Williams had crushed Barbora Strycova 6-1, 6-2 to make it to the final.
Second seeded Naomi Osaka was sent packing in round one, while Ash Barty who had taken over the top ranking after winning the French Open earlier, went crashing in the fourth round.
