    At 3.450, Federer and Nadal are given equal chances to win Wimbledon.

    Djokovic is the third favourite at 4.500.

    The odds are greater that any one of the players outside the top three will win rather than one of the top three.

    Last night Raonic was given a slightly better chance to win than Roddick, now Roddick is more favoured to win (but still a long shot at 56.000).

    I'm surprised Murray isn't lined up above Djokovic!

    Especially now that he skipped Queen's. Maybe the ankle? Maybe the books are trying to lure the fence-sitters to come in early?

    I'm not too surprised at that.

    Murray is unproven. He's had some really sad losses in Grand Slam finals. His ankle is a big question mark. He can't be counted as a 'favorite', at least not compared to Nadal, Federer, and Djokovic, who have shown themselves able to bring their game in Slams.

    I don't think Roddick has nearly the chance Djokovic has to win it.

    It all depends where people have placed their money I suppose. Murray is probably a better grass court player than Djokovic, but the performances of Djokovic this year must have influenced the people who have placed bets so far. No doubt if all the Brits have a little flutter on Murray over the next week, they will have to align his odds nearer to that of Djokovic.

    Having not played in nearly a year, Serena Williams is still favoured to win Wimbledon.

    Djokovic is more likely to win any slam event than Murray right now. I am not at all surprised Djokovic's odds are signicantly lower than Murray. Had he won the French he probably would have been the bookies favorite to win Wimbledon.
