In 2022 it was the turn of Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan to win the tournament and she will be back to defend her crown in 2023.

How many times has Wimbledon taken place?

Wimbledon first started in 1877 and there have been 135 editions of the tournament. The 2020 Championships were cancelled, the first time the event hasn't gone ahead since World War II.

Who has won Wimbledon on the most occasions?

Roger Federer became the most decorated male singles player of all-time when winning Wimbledon for an eighth time in 2017.

However, Djokovic is hot on the heels of the Swiss star, having won it six times, including on each of the last three occasions.

William Renshaw, around in the late 19th century, also won it seven times, along with Pete Sampras, who claimed his final Wimbledon title in 2000.

Martina Navratilova is the most decorated female player in history, having won nine titles between 1978 and 1990.

Helen Wills Moody is an eight-time winner, while Dorothea Lambert Chambers, Steffi Graf and Serena Williams all have seven victories to their name.

Who are the favourites for Wimbledon?

Djokovic is once again the hot fancy to win Wimbledon and is priced at 1.80 to win a fifth straight title.

With Roger Federer now retired and Rafael Nadal missing in 2023 due to injury, it is hard to see who will stop Djokovic at Wimbledon.

Australian Nick Kyrgios, who made the final in 2022 before losing to Djokovic, can be backed at 15.00 to go all the way and gain revenge.

Matteo Berrettini, who was the beaten finalist in 2021, will be attempting to do the same and can also be backed at 10.00.

Other contenders for the title are Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev, who are priced at 4.00 and 8.00 respectively.

There is not much to separate the hot fancies in the women’s tournament with both Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka available at 5.00.

Last year’s winner Rybakina can be backed at 5.50.
