Federer Favourite For Wimbledon At Sportsbook.com
By michael
The grass court season is upon us and swashbuckling Swiss Roger Federer is in the hunt for his fourth Wimbledon title in four years. Not surprisingly his previous success has led the odds makers at Sportsbook.com to list Federer as the 1-3 favourite to hoist the gentleman's trophy in July.

On the women's side, fourth seeded Maria Sharapova is the 5-2 favourite, and will hope to fair better than 2005's semi-final defeat to eventual winner Venus Williams.

The United States' best chance for glory is third-seed Andy Roddick, who is a well-placed 6-1 bet. Roddick has met Federer at centre court in the last two Wimbledon finals, but only managed to steal one set from the Swiss top seed. Other seeded Americans taking to the courts in Wimbledon are James Blake (20-1) and veteran Andre Agassi (60-1).

Surprisingly the only American playing in the women's event will be Venus Williams after sister Serena Williams and compatriots Jennifer Capriati and Lindsay Davenport bowed out due to injuries.

Williams is a 6-1 bet, which places her fourth on the odds chart. Ahead of her are Belgians Kim Clijsters (11-2), Justine Henin- Hardenne (9-2) and the favoured Russian belle Maria Sharapova.
