The 2017 edition of one of the most anticipated Grand Slam tennis tournaments of the calendar promises to be an exciting one.
With Novak Djokovic out for an undefined period, Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic all absent as well, the list of usual contenders and title runners has been significantly trimmed down.
Another prominent name has, unfortunately, joined the list of absentees as it is now confirmed that Andy Murray will miss the tournament due to an injury he sustained after a practice session.
Murray’s exit pushed Marin Cilic to the second seeding berth, whereas Sam Querrey now takes Cilic’s place in the berth. All of the relocations caused plenty of havoc ahead of the main event’s draw, whereas they also affected the odds for the upcoming tournament
Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are the usual suspects and are widely expected to fight for trophy this year. The Swiss veteran is being presented as the main favourite at a 2/1 price over at Betfair, whereas the Spaniard is right behind him with 3/1 betting odds at William Hill.
Alexander Zverev was the main beneficiary of all of the changes and most recent Murray’s exit as he now stands as the third favourite to win the trophy at 5/1 slapped on his back at 10Bet.
Marin Cilic follows with whopping 14/1 betting odds at Bet365, which is exactly the price you will get betting on Grigor Dimitrov at BetVictor.
As for the ladies, Gabrine Muguruza has been installed as the top bookies favourite to lift the coveted trophy and can be found at 4/1 betting odds at Paddy Power. Karolina Pliskova is right behind her with 6/1 offer at William Hill, whereas the Russian icon Maria Sharapova sits in third place with 7/1 in her favour at Bet365.
