Will Roger Federer win Wimbledon for the ninth time?

How Federer keeps denying his age is remarkable. The 37 year old produced tennis that was from another level in his semi-final against Rafael Nadal. The Swiss took a 3-1 win in the final four matchup, producing some an astonishingly high-quality stuff to keep the in-form Nadal on the back foot. Roger Federer has dropped just the two sets on his way to this year’s final. The first was in his quarter-final against Kei Nishikori and then the one against Nadal.

Total Sets 4


It will be his 21st Grand Slam title if he collects the win on Sunday. It will be his first since his 2018 Australian Open. Federer’s last Wimbledon title happened when he defied the odds and rolled back the years in 2017. Now he is back once again, just one step from what would be a remarkable ninth title at SW19. He never looks out of breath. His body language never changes or tires and the longer rallies go on, the more you fancy him to pick up the points. That’s exactly what he did against Nadal. Remarkable stuff.

Can he take it one step further? Federer is 6/4 underdog for the final* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on July 12th, 2019 at 7.30 p.m.)

Head to head

Djokovic is 25-22 up in the head to head over Roger Federer, so it’s tight. The most recent meeting was last year in the semi-finals of the ATP Masters 1000 Paris, which Djokovic won 2-1. It is a three-match winning streak that the Serbian is on against Federer now and has won five of the last six. The last time that they were up against each other in a Grand Slam was at the 2016 Australian Open.

There have been three previous Wimbledon meetings. The first was in 2012 with Federer sweeping to a 3-1 set win in the semi-finals. The next Wimbledon match was in 2014 which Djokovic won in five sets. They met twelve months later with Djokovic winning in four.

Will Djokovic win his fifth Wimbledon title?

Absolutely no-one is going to be surprised by the appearance of Novak Djokovic in this season’s Wimbledon final. He was the pre-season tournament and is on the brink of success. It should be noted that there have been times in the last two rounds when he has looked to be labouring just a little bit. Certainly, in his quarter-final win,in which he breezed by David Goffin 6-4 6-0 6-2, there were times that the Serbian was huffing and puffing a bit. There were glimpses of it happening when he dropped the second set against Roberto Bautista Agut in the semi-finals.

His frustration levels were evident as well. But his defence, by and large, has been so good. Some of the shots he defended in his 3-1 final four success over the Spaniard was simply remarkable, particularly in the opening set. Djokovic fears no-one but he will probably know that the crowd is going to likely be more behind Federer than it is him. Djokovic will be playing to keep a hold of three of the four Grand Slam titles that he holds. The only missing one is the French Open title which has found so hard to get his hands on during his brilliant career. Can he notch up his 16th Slam success as the 1/2 favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on July 12th, 2019 at 7.30 p.m.)?


We were all about supporting Roger Federer in the semi-finals against Rafael Nadal because of the strong head to head that the Fed Express had against the Spaniards. We have to turn the tables this time around though in favour of Djokovic. The Serbian has looked unplayable at times in this tournament and he will work Federer a lot harder in defence. The head to head form is with him, even on the grass. A 3-1 Djokovic win in set betting appeals at 10/3* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on July 12th, 2019 at 7.30 p.m.). We just don’t see his defence being broken to the point where he drops three sets.
