WIMBLEDON DAY 13:
14:00 – NOVAK DJOKOVIC V ROGER FEDERER
Finally we’ve come to the most exciting encounter in this year’s Wimbledon Championships with World No.1 Novak Djokovic facing his only remaining hurdle, the Swiss legend Roger Federer.
I had predicted Roger to do very wellbefore the tournament started, with odds of 8 on Betfair. This turned out to be spot on. In fact, even with that prediction, I must say I did not see him beating the local favourite Andy Murray in such stunning fashion in the Semis.
Indeed many have pointed out that the match was one of Roger’s best ever performances on Grass.
My first impression of these odds is that Djokovic maybe priced a bit high. This is because unlike Murray, Novak is a much better returner and also serves consistently. Hence, Roger is likely to have his biggest test yet! Then again, if the Swiss maestro is to have any chance in being crowned this year, the 1st set is simply a MUST WIN.
Overall, I am inclined to lay Djokovic here as Federer’s good momentum is likely to work well at the start and deteriorate as time goes by.
—> LAY DJOKOVIC @1.88, BACK @2.55
I cannot really predict how this match is going to go eventually as both these players are exceptionally good. From Novak’s point of view, losing to Stan in French is just that extra bit of incentive to win this one, also as the defending champ. From Roger’s perspective, winning any grand slam is a question with Novak constantly improving. And this could indeed be his last throw of the dice for Roger.
Either way, unlike the Women’s Final which was dominated by Serena, this one promises to be a mouthwatering affair!

All odds shown with the tips are correct at time of publishing. Odds are often given several hours ahead of the event. If odds have changed, adjust your back/lay stake accordingly e.g. if I tip ‘Back at 1.5, Lay at 1.25’ – and back odds move to 1.55, adjust your lay odds to 1.3 – there are still 25 ticks between the back and lay odds.
Delay and Trade!! It’s OK to place your trades before the match starts, but in my opinion, waiting 2/3 games before placing your trades is the safest way to trade. This is advised in many of the articles below. To delay and trade will give you a good feel for the match. Delay and Trade is a MUST if you are Backing Heavy. Delaying is advised mostly for the women’s game, as early breaks of serve are more likely. Please read the relevant article below.
