Roger Federer boasts an incredible career haul of 16 Grand Slam titles, yet he remains a dark horse to win at SW19 in the men’s Wimbledon betting The Swiss ace remains confident that he can end the dominance of the world‘s top two, however.
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have shared the last nine Grand Slam titles. Federer has been unable to add to his Major trophy collection, which stalled after the Australian Open at the beginning of 2010.
Federer turns 31 in August, and the 2012 Wimbledon Championships could be his last chance to secure another Major title.
He has won six titles at SW19, and is going for a record number seven. Federer loves the grass courts of the All England Club, and has the perfect game for the tournament.
The dominance of Djokovic and Nadal means that Federer is now regarded as a relatively long shot to win the title on Betfair Online, but any of those three can leave SW19 with the world number one ranking if they win the Wimbledon title.
Federer admits that he is “dreaming” of the Wimbledon title, and is determined to break the Djokovic-Nadal tryst that has dominated men’s tennis, in recent years.
“My confidence is very good. I’ve won many tournaments, so many matches, the last year or so, that I feel perfect in this regard,” Federer said. “It’s exciting times ahead. I fancy my chances here and at the U.S. Open.”
So, who is the favourite out of Djokovic and Nadal? Well the Spaniard’s win at the French Open was his third straight, but that was on clay, and the world number one has the better game on grass.
‘Djoker’ recently added that he was playing with “more self-belief” on grass than on any other surface.
