Fleetwood Town look at the best odds on the tennis...


Ahead of Finals weekend at Wimbledon here is a look at the contenders in both the men’s and women’s draw to see who is likely to claim victory courtesy of SkyBet.

In the men’s draw, number one seed and reigning champion Novak Djokovic has had a relatively straightforward progression into the semi-finals.

His hardest test came in the round of 16 facing South African Kevin Anderson. The Serbian lost the first two sets and had to take the match into a second day in order to see the job through.

Having reached the final four for the sixth consecutive year he will face 21st seed Richard Gasquet who beat French Open champion Stan Wawrinka in the quarter-finals in a five set thriller.

Djokovic is priced at 1/16 on to reach the final for the fourth time in five years while Gasquet is priced at 8/1 to reach his first final at SW19. Their odds for winning the tournament outright are 8/11 and 33/1 respectively.

In the other semi-final Britain’s number one, and number three seed, Andy Murray comes up against seven-time winner Roger Federer.

The match will be a repeat of the 2012 final in which the age-defying Swiss beat Murray before the Scot returned to beat him on the same stage in the 2012 London Olympics.

It is the sixth time in the past seven years that Murray has reached the semi-finals and having won the AEGON international at Queens’ in the build up to Wimbledon has been tipped to repeat his 2013 feat of going all the way.

Murray is priced at 4/5 while Federer is at 1/1 for Friday’s encounter while their prices for the outright win are 3/1 and 4/1 respectively.

In the women’s draw, number one seed and five-time winner Serena Williams remains the bookies favourite ahead of her encounter with Maria Sharapova.

The American, who defeated older sister, Venus, in straight sets in the round of 16 also holds an impressive head-to-head record over the Russian.

Sharapova has failed to beat Williams in their last 16 meetings though Serena was pushed all the way by Victoria Azarenka in the quarter-finals.

Sharapova also holds good memories having beaten the top seed back in 2004 aged just 17 to secure her only Wimbledon title thus far in her career.

Given her dominance Williams is priced at 1/6 on to beat Sharapova who is at 4/1.

Serena’s outright price is 4/11 while Sharapova is the second favourite at 13/2 with the odds suggesting the winner of this match could win the tournament.

The other semi-final that has taken place this afternoon and in its final set sees 21-year-old Garbine Muguruza taken on 2012 runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska.

They are both priced at 8/1 to win the SW19 crown.
