Wimbledon men’s odds: Djokovic stays on track but Berrettini cut
Wimbledon men’s odds
We’re at the quarter-final stage of Wimbledon and Novak Djokovic is showing no sign of letting up in his bid for a sixth title and a 20th grand slam overall.
The Serb has won 12 successive sets since dropping the opener against Jack Draper in the first round and is now 4/9 in the Wimbledon men’s odds.
With eight players left in the tournament we’re taking a look at the leading contenders to win the title at the All England Club ahead of Wednesday’s last-eight ties.
Djokovic was 10/11 at the start of the tournament but straight-sets wins against Kevin Anderson, Denis Kudla and Cristian Garin have seen his odds shorten as he looks to become the first man in the Open era to win all four grand slams in a calendar year.

He said: “It’s not a secret I am trying to win as many slams as possible.”
Awaiting him in the quarter-finals is Marton Fucsovics, a player he has beaten in their two prior meetings.
Eight-time champion Federer made short work of Lorenzo Sonego to reach the quarter-finals where he will meet Hubert Hurkacz who stunned secod seed Daniil Medvedev in a match carried over from Monday.
The 39-year-old Swiss is still working his way back from two knee operations and he got lucky in the first round when Adrian Mannarino had to retire with an injury before the start of the deciding set.
Federer has since started to look sharper as he showed in beating in-form Brit Cameron Norrie in four sets in the third round and his Wimbledon men’s odds now stand at 7/1 from 9/1 pre-tournament.
We highlighted the Italian as a potential winner of Wimbledon and everything is pointing towards a first appearance in a grand slam final on the evidence of his performances at the All England Club.
Big-serving Berrettini has sent down 67 aces in his four matches and he won the last three ties against Botic van de Zandschulp, Aljaz Bedene and Ilya Ivashka in straight sets.
The seventh seed, 14/1 in the Wimbledon men’s odds before a ball had been hit, has dropped serve just twice and is now 15/2 to win the title, with Canadian youngster Felix Auger-Aliassime next in line in Wednesday’s quarter-finals.
The 22-year-old Canadian is finally starting to show his potential with impressive straight-sets victories over Andy Murray and Roberto Bautista Agut to reach the last eight and is 16/1 in the Wimbledon men’s odds.
Shapovalov and his next opponent Karen Khachaov have both appeared in just one previous grand slam quarter-final but neither player has reached this stage at Wimbledon.
After the win against two-time champion Murray, the 10th seed said: “I don’t think I could have played any better.”
Auger-Aliassime described his five-set fourth-round win against Alexander Zverev as the “best victory of my life” and he is 20/1 in the Wimbledon men’s odds ahead of his clash with Berrettini.
The 16th seed benefited from Nick Kyrgios’ retirement with a stomach injury at the start of the third set in round three and he had never taken a set off Zverev before Monday.
He lost his only previous encounter with Berrettini in straight sets on the grass courts of Stuttgart two years ago but he is a better player these days.
