Many eyes will be on Novak Djokovic as he chases the single-season Grand Slam as the tennis world descends on England for the Wimbledon championships starting Monday.

Djokovic already has won the Australian Open and French Open this season; if he could win at Wimbledon, he’d be a U.S. Open title away from becoming the first man to win a single-year Grand Slam since Rod Laver did it in 1969 — the only time it’s been done in men’s tennis in the Open era.

It’s no surprise Djokovic is favored to get the job done at the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. But just how much respect he’s given in the betting market is staggering. Djokovic is the -175 favorite at Caesars Sportsbook, implying a 63.6% chance he’ll win the tournament out of a field of 128 players.

The only other player with odds better than 15-to-1 in the men’s market is Carlos Alcaraz, the 20-year-old Spaniard who was favored over Djokovic but ultimately wilted to muscle cramps in the French Open semifinals. Alcaraz, last year’s U.S. Open winner, is +350 at Wimbledon.

The women’s singles draw is much more open, though three favorites rise above the rest of the field on the odds board at Caesars: Iga Swiatek is the +250 favorite; she’s a four-time Grand Slam event winner, including this year’s French Open, but has never gone past the fourth round at Wimbledon. Following Swiatek in short order is reigning champion Elena Rybakina at +450 and Aryna Sabalenka, this year’s Australian Open champion, at +500.

There are more women’s names under +1500, too; Petra Kvitova, who comes in at +1100, is a two-time Wimbledon winner but hasn’t gone past the fourth round since she last lifted the trophy in 2014. Then comes the first American, Coco Gauff, at +1200; the 19-year-old reached the French Open final last year but hasn’t yet won a Grand Slam. Ons Jabeur (+1400) is a Tunisian also looking for her first major championship.

On the men’s side, you have to go deeper to find American threats. Sebastian Korda comes in at +2800 and Taylor Fritz at +3000; neither has ever reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam.

Two-time Wimbledon winner and British favorite Andy Murray is +5000; he’s battled injuries since his last title on the grass in 2016.

The most famous name on the women’s side is undoubtedly Venus Williams, but the five-time Wimbledon champion is 43, hasn’t reached a Grand Slam final since 2017 and is ranked No. 557 in the world. She’s +27500 to win the tournament.
