The month-long grass court season hits a dramatic climax when the 2019 Wimbledon Championships open Monday, July 1 at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. World No. 1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic is gunning for his fifth Wimbledon crown, while 37-year-old Roger Federer looks to add to his record eight titles. Federer won this prestigious tournament in 2017, while Andy Murray hoisted the trophy the year before that. That trio has accounted for the last seven champions. Sportsbooks list Djokovic as the 3-2 favorite in the latest 2019 Wimbledon odds, followed by Federer (3-1) and two-time champ Rafael Nadal (5-1), who’s coming off his 18th Grand Slam win at the French Open. Alexander Zverev (14-1), Stefanos Tsitsipas (16-1), Marin Cilic (25-1), Milos Raonic (25-1) and Kevin Anderson (25-1) also are 2019 Wimbledon contenders, given the advancing age of the top favorites. Before you make any 2019 Wimbledon picks, be sure to see the predictions from British tennis expert Sean Calvert.
An uncanny handicapper who’s been cashing consistently for six-plus years, Calvert took down a huge score in March on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1 and he followed that up this month by calling Adrian Mannarino’s Libema Open title at 25-1.
The Libema Open is a grass court event like Wimbledon — a surface Calvert knows better than anyone. Not only did he call Andy Murray’s 2013 and 2016 Wimbledon championships, but anyone who has followed his grass court picks is up nearly $4,400. Now, Calvert has broken down the latest Wimbledon 2019 odds and released his pick to win. He’s sharing it over at SportsLine.
We can tell you Calvert wants no part of Nadal despite the Spaniard going 32-5 this year and reaching the finals of both 2019 majors, winning one. Nadal hasn’t won Wimbledon since 2010 and he’s “usually fatigued and/or injured after a big effort on the clay swing,” Calvert told SportsLine.
Calvert says Murray is an intriguing proposition at 50-1 given his hometown status and strong Wimbledon pedigree. However, he just returned from hip surgery and has yet to play a competitive singles match this year. The quartet of Murray, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic has won every Wimbledon singles crown since 2003.
“But big-hitting types like Milos Raonic, Kevin Anderson and Marin Cilic have all made the final here in the last three years,” Calvert said. “In addition, a new crop of players believes they’re ready to step up.”
Calvert, who has seen “eye-catching performances” from several long shots on the grass court circuit, is targeting one long shot who could stun the tennis world based on his expected draw. Calvert is highly confident he has the Wimbledon 2019 winner. You can only see it at SportsLine.
