Djokovic and Serena the Wimbledon favourites

The third Grand Slam of the year, Wimbledon, begins on Monday and the Infostrada Sports’ Forecast model agrees with the seeding commission on the favourites. Number one seed Novak Djokovic has a 37% chance of winning in London this year whilst his female equivalent Serena Williams’ chance is even higher at 40%.


The Infostrada Sports Forecast for tennis takes account of all ATP or WTA matches in producing a ranking for mens’ and ladies’ singles. The ranking is then corrected for the surface of the competition and the tournament is simulated 10,000 times. The current ranking does not agree with raising Andy Murray to third seed from his ATP ranking of five and the home favourite should be seeded four behind Roger Federer who should have had his seeding improved to third instead. Murray’s deserved seeding is four whilst fifth seed Stan Wawrinka is rated a lot lower than that by Forecast. There is around a 90% chance that the Wimbledon champion will be one of the top four seeds.
