Wimbledon, bookmakers see Alcaraz as the favorite and not number one Sinner


By John

Despite the victory in Halle, Jannik Sinner remains behind Carlos Alcaraz in the predictions of English bookmakers, who continue to consider the 21-year-old Spaniard, title holder, the prime favorite to win the 2024 Championship. One week before the start of Wimbledon, anticipation is growing for the two weeks on the grass of the All England Club, and with it – as per tradition in the United Kingdom – also the bets of enthusiasts. After his triumph at Roland Garros, Alcaraz immediately stepped onto the Queen’s grass at the hands of Jack Draper: nevertheless the bookies continue to consider him the player to beat, with rather low odds (7/4). Behind him is Sinner, priced slightly higher (13/8), enough to be ahead of Novak Djokovic (4), seven-time winner on Center Court, but whose presence on the scoreboard remains more uncertain than ever after the knee surgery. Among the other Italians, the one who has the most chances of winning – according to the bookies – is Matteo Berrettini, given at 20while the success of Lorenzo Musetti, finalist at Queen’s, is listed at 100.
