Matched Betting Wimbledon 2023

Many of you will know I’m not talking about the Wombles here or the place in London! Instead, about the most prestigious tennis tournament of the year. In this post, you will learn all about Wimbledon 2023 and how you can use it to profit from Matched Betting.

Wimbledon 2023 Preview

Wimbledon 2023 starts on Monday the 3rd of July at the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in SW19. The finals will be taking place on the 15th and 16th of July for the women's and men's singles tournaments. Play starts at 11.30am each day with hundreds of matches being played over the singles, doubles, and wheelchair tournaments with the finals scheduled to start at 2pm on the relevant days.

The draw for this tournament takes place on the 30th of June. So, it’s not easy to see how the betting will be for this and if it will change much based on the draw. Novak Djokovic is surely the favourite for the men’s title but it won’t be easy for him, with the likes of Matteo Berrettini also in contention, if he wants his eighth Wimbledon win and the trophy with a pineapple on the top of it. In the women’s singles, Elena Rybakina is going to have to put in a lot of prep if she wants to defend her title against stiff competition from Iga Świątek and Ons Jabeur.  No one knows exactly who is playing who in Wimbledon’s line-up until the Friday before the competition starts.

In 2022, the draw took place on Friday 24th of June at 10 am BST so the draw should be scheduled for the same time on Friday 30th of June this year.  Looking at the tennis brackets from previous years, though, it’s possible to predict some of the players who’ll be part of the 2023 tournament. As mentioned above, current ATP world number one and 2022 Wimbledon winner Novak Djokovic will open play on Centre Court. There’s also a good chance that Cameron Norrie will play on Centre Court in the first day or two as the top-ranking male British tennis players at present. 

Fan favourite and two-time Wimbledon winner Andy Murray could also make an appearance in 2023. Murray often accepts wildcard entries at the last minute, including 11 wildcards in 2022, so we’d say he’s likely to include Wimbledon 2023 in his busy schedule. Furthermore, with speculation about him retiring soon, 2023 might even be his last time playing at SW19. Depending on his results in the build-up to Wimbledon, he could claim an automatic entry anyway and not need a wildcard. As things stand, Sebastian Korda is next best with 1,175 points so Murray will likely have to make up roughly 145 points if he wants to be in the top 32 before the Wimbledon seeding cut-off date on June 26.

As the current ATP rankings stand, the men’s singles should also include Carlos Alcaraz, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Casper Ruud as the current second, third, and fourth-best players in the world. It’s still not certain whether Russian and Belarusian players will be able to compete this year but if they are, fifth-ranked Andrey Andreyevich Rublev should also play at Wimbledon 2023. 

As for who’s playing in the Wimbledon women’s singles, defending champion Elena Rybakina will be there from day one. A few of her possible opponents will include the current top four ranked women in the world, Iga Świątek, Ons Jabeur, Anett Kontaveit, and Paula Badosa. Fifth-placed Aryna Sabalenka is another player whose Wimbledon 2023 place isn’t certain, though, since she hails from Belarus and they are waiting on visas to be issued. With three joint favourites for the women's title this makes it an interesting tournament with them all playing for the shield.
