Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have all advanced. All three entered the tournament as expensive favorites. Thus far there is nothing that indicates early departures for any of them. However, bargain hunters will be searching for potential alternatives. A losing wager on the Big Three will bust a bankroll.

Although the Big Three prevailed in their first-round matches there have been some notable upsets. Six seed Alexander Zverev was defeated by Czech qualifier Jiri Vesely in the first round. Zverev confessed to have lost confidence against Vesely’s serves. Stefanos Tsitsipas entered Wimbledon as the seven seed and also was upset. Thomas Fabbiano had never even taken a set against a top 20 player. But Fabbiano scored the tennis betting odds payout over Tsitsipas. Meanwhile fifth seed Dominic Thiem was beaten by Sam Querrey. Denis Shapovalov also confessed mental problems after his loss to Ricardas Berankis.
Implications of First Round
While the Big Three thrived, the aforementioned upsets show that there may not be a serious threat to them. The dominance of Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer has scared off gamblers from trying to get to cute on alternatives. Indeed, many sportsbook handicappers are focusing on which of the Big Three will prevail. However other there are some possible alternatives.
Bargain Hunting Candidates
First among the choices remaining to take on the Big Three is Kevin Anderson. At the onset of the Gentlemen’s singles he was the fourth seed. In his opening match Anderson defeated Pierre Hughes Hebert. Account of Anderson making the final in 2018 have bargain hunters looked hard. It was the second time in two years that Anderson was a Grand Slam runner up. He is still looking for that elusive first Grand Slam win. On the whole Kei Nishikori, John Isner and Karen Khachanov round out the top ten. Each would have a proverbial “punchers chance.”
The Big Three
Of major concern for handicappers is the lack of a viable alternative to the top three seeds. Djokovic, Federer and Nadal are proven champions. Furthermore, they remain at the top of their games. That being said Djokovic is the biggest of the Big Three. He is dominating the 2019 standings and is defending champion. Commencing with that is the chance at a fifth Wimbledon title. Djokovic has already won a Grand Slam this year at the Australian Open.
Matchup to Watch
On this occasion we are treated to three of the greatest players of all time with the tennis betting odds. Roger Federer is the eight-time Wimbledon champion but 37 years old. Rafael Nadal is better suited as the King of Clay for Roland Garros. This leaves Djokovic as the best choice.
