|Wimbledon 2008, the highlight of the professional tennis year, kicks off a week today. All eyes are on Roger Federer, who has won the Men’s Singles title five years in a row and held the honour of being ranked #1 in the world for a record 229 weeks. He recently suffered his second defeat from British sensation Andy Murray and lost the French Open to Rafael Nadal.|
Discounting his recent poor form, the Swiss giant is still a powerful force in tennis. He is still a firm favourite to make this year his sixth, with odds of 5/4 to be found from Coral.
The patriotic British will want to place a bet on young gun Andy Murray, who is offered at 33/1 at SportingBet and CamBet.
