No. 1 seed and world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz is the second favorite, while Maryland native Frances Tiafoe won his first grass court tournament in Stuttgart two weeks ago and is +6500 to win the 2023 Wimbledon.

Will Djokovic be able to fend off Alcaraz, or will someone else, like Italy’s Jannik Sinner, win this prestigious event? Find out who we like to win the 2023 Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles Championships.

Holger Rune



Sebi Korda



Stefanos Tsitsipas



The Favorites

  • Novak Djokovic: Djokovic has won this event six times and is the reigning champion. He’ll be the No. 2 seed and is seeking his third-consecutive Grand Slam victory of the season. Djokovic is the best grass-court player in the world, with an 89-10 mark at the All England Club.
  • Carlos Alcaraz: Alcaraz is the No. 1 player in the world and the reigning US Open champion. The big-hitting Spaniard won last week’s grass-court event at Queens Club and is arguably the most exciting player on the ATP Tour.
  • Jannik Sinner: Sinner reached the quarters here in 2022 and has a 4-3 Wimbledon record. Sinner has played .500 ball over the past 52 weeks on grass, but his big serve and vicious forehand can make life difficult for his opponents during this tournament.

The Dark Horses

  • Nick Kyrgios: When healthy, Kyrgios is probably the only player who can legitimately challenge Djokovic. Kyrgios has played just one match since injuring his knee last October, but if he can get hot, he’s a dangerous No. 31 seed.
  • Holger Rune: Rune is seeded sixth and reached the semis of Queens Club. Rune has massive strokes from both wings with an equally big serve. Rune also has a solid return game but is 3-4 lifetime on grass. If Rune can get hot with his serve could make some serious noise during this fortnight.
  • Taylor Fritz: Fritz reached the quarters here last year and has the serve and the groundstrokes to make a serious Wimbledon run. Fritz is a capable volleyer, but his return game is just average. He’ll need to ramp up his serve and, if he does, could easily reach the second week at this event.

The Sleepers

  • Sebastian Korda: Korda is the 23rd seed and has steadily improved all facets of his game. Korda reached the Round of 16 in 2021, is solid from both wings, and suffered a straight-set loss to Alcaraz at Queens. Korda lacks the big serve to challenge the likes of Djokovic, but the young American could get hot and make a strong run.
  • Frances Tiafoe: Tiafoe won his first grass court title earlier this month in Stuttgart and is as dangerous a player as any on grass. Tiafoe has one of the biggest serves on tour and hits big balls from both wings. His serve game is improving, and could pull off an upset or two at this event.

2023 Wimbledon Best Bet: Novak Djokovic -140

These are terrible odds from DraftKings Maryland for a Wimbledon Futures bet, but Djokovic should win Wimbledon 2023.

Djokovic has done everything possible on a tennis court, but he’s missing two things he desperately wants; a calendar Grand slam and an Olympic Gold Medal. The latter he can shoot for in 2024, but he’s just two slams away from the calendar slam, and there isn’t really anyone standing in his way.

Alcaraz is probably the next big thing, but he’s had cramping issues during Grand Slam events – he cramped up horribly in the second set of his semifinal against Djokovic at the French, which is a major concern and why I’m not backing him at Wimbledon.

Sinner has the game to challenge Djokovic, but he seems to be more interested in his burgeoning modeling career than playing tennis. Sinner can make waves here, but he isn’t beating Djokovic at Wimbledon.

Kyrgios is the wild card. He reached the finals at last year’s event, but he’s been hurt and has played just one match since October, and I don’t expect him to go very far in the draw.

Americans Fritz, Tiafoe, and Korda have all played good ball on grass, but I don’t see these three challenging Djokovic on grass.

At the end of the day, it’s Novak’s tournament to lose. He knows there is no one in the field that can take him out, and I expect him to roll through this event. He’s the best player on grass, and he can beat opponents in numerous ways. I expect him to win the 2023 Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles Championship.
