Will it be title number 8 for Roger Federer? Or Will Novak Djokovic add another Grand Slam to his impressive collection? We have free Wimbledon 2014 betting tips.
There is no doubt after a fortnight of tennis, the two players producing the best tennis have reached the final. Starting with Federer, who has dropped just a single set on the way to the final and that was against Stan Wawrinka, nothing to be ashamed of there. The 7-time Wimbledon champion looks like a man reborn, after going out in the second round at last year’s Wimbledon, his form has improved dramatically, reaching the Semi’s in Australia and playing some great stuff along the way.
Many people believed Federer’s Grand Slam winning career to be over but now he looks to have a chance again. Many believe that he will win another Grand Slam and due to his fantastic form on grass, this is his best shout. He won in Halle coming in to Wimbledon so is on a ten match unbeaten run on this surface.
His draw up until Wawrinka was relatively straight forward but he then showed off his Swiss compatriot in the Quarter’s with relative ease before taking out Milos Raonic in straight sets in the Semi-Finals. He has looked untroubled and seem to have his eyes on the prize, considering 7 of the last 11 Wimbledon titles have been won by Federer, he knows how to do it when it matters.
In his way though is one of the greatest tennis players to ever live, who will also be desperate for a trophy. He is now without a Grand Slam since Australia 2013 and for a player of his caliber that is simply not good enough. After losing to Nadal in the French Open Final (nothing to be ashamed of there) he now also has to arguably take on the King of the Wimbledon Centre Court in Roger Federer to end his drought.
It is back to back Finals but it hasn’t always been easy for him on his route here. Cilic pushed him all the way in to five sets while if the nerves hadn’t got to Dimitrov in the Semi’s, we could have a very different final. He looked tense at times in the Semi-Final and the pressure he puts on himself as well as that coming from around him is massive. He has spent considerably more time on court than Federer so it will be interesting to see what effect this has.
The players have already met 3 times this season with Federer leading that head to head 2-1 but none of them were on grass. They last met in a Grand Slam in the Wimbledon 2012 Semi-Finals when Federer came through 3-1 en route to winning the title. Their last ten matches have seen Djokovic win 6 to Federer’s 4 but Federer leads their head to head at the Grand Slams 6-5.
Djokovic is favorite to win here at 8/13 with Bet365 while Federer is a best price 6/4 with Ladbrokes. I am not going to lie, I would absolutely love Federer to win his 8th Wimbledon, a fantastic way to end an amazing career.
I don’t know if I’m confident enough to take him outright, so a slight handicap may be useful, he is 10/11 to win with a +2.5 games handicap. We’ve seen 8 tiebreaks in the 11 Grand Slam meetings between these two so it will almost certainly be close.
These two have only ever gone to 5 sets twice in their 11 meetings and both of them have been won by Djokovic. You imagine the younger man would have the edge if that happens again, Djokovic to win in 5 sets is a nice looking 5/1 if you are looking for a much bigger price.
Finally, as much as the romantic in me wants Federer, sport doesn't always quite work like that, so get on Djokovic to win and both players to win a set at 6/4 with William Hill.
