Wimbledon odds and favorites 2018
Who will win according to the Wimbledon odds? The winner odds for Wimbledon does usually change quite a lot as the tournament comes closer. The favorites to win the tournament are, at the moment, Petra Kvitova and Roger Federer.
Winner odds women’s tournament
Serena Williams is usually the favorite to win the women’s tournament, but not this year. She had her first child last year, and isn’t ranked as one of the top 32 players that are seeded for Wimbledon. It is however possible that an exception will be made for her, and she will be seeded anyway. The favorite to win the Wimbledon Women 2018 is instead Petra Kvitova, who is yet to win a Wimbledon title. Her best Wimbledon results are two second places, in 2011 and 2015.

The very first Wimbledon winner was crowned back in 1877, and was called Spencer Gore. Wimbledon back then was just a singles tournament for men, and Gore managed to win the first one. That final had an audience of about 200, a number that has grown significantly in modern times. The single tournament for women was added in 1884, and the Maud Watson was the first winner.
During the first years, the tournament used a system called All Comers Round and Challenge Round. That meant that defending champions only had to play one match in order to defend their title. The other player’s competed to get to play against the defending championship. The system made it very easy to win multiple years in a row, and the system was abolished in 1922.
William Renshaw (1881-1886) and Martina Navratilova (1982-1987) has the longest winning streaks in Wimbledon history. Björn Borg (1976-1980) and Roger Federer (2003-2007) are next in line with five wins in a row each.
