In the singles draws, Wimbledon 2018 sees Roger Federer and Garbiñe Muguruza return as defending champions.
The 37-year-old Federer is going for his 9th Wimbledon Men's singles title and 21st career Grand Slam title. His current haul of 8 titles on the London grass and 20 Grand Slam titles are both all-time men's records.
Meanwhile, Muguruza will be back at SW19 to try and win her 3rd career Grand Slam title after adding to her 2017 French Open title with last year's Ladies' singles crown. But she faces several rivals eager to reclaim the top spot in London.
These days a roof means rain doesn't stop play on Wimbledon's Centre Court.

Wimbledon 2018 Betting Tips

No matter if you've bagged yourself a ticket to cheer with the tennis crowds on (Andy) Murray Mound or if you simply plan to follow the tennis on the telly, we'll bring you the best betting bonus offers coupled with top tips of where to put your money. With several weeks to go until the first balls are hit at Wimbledon 2018, here's a few tips from Bookiesbonuses.com on where the smart early money is going.
Naturally, when talking about the Men's singles tournament the name Roger Federer springs to mind. Not only has the Swiss Maestro won three recent Slams, but his rivals in the Big Four have been unable to compete due to different injuries. Novak Djokovic and home favourite Andy Murray are currently struggling. Rafael Nadal won two Slams in 2017 but hasn't been to the latter stages of a Wimbledon tournament since 2011.
Outsiders like Marin Cilic look set to be Fed's biggest threat, yet the bookies are still offering good value on outsiders including Cilic, Stan Wawrinka and Juan Martin del Potro. The young German Alexander Zverev is currently ranked 3rd in the world and is the most likely of the new breed to break the old guards' monopoly on the silverware. That said, no man from outside the Big Four has won Wimbledon since 2002 - so the bookies may be right!

In the Ladies' singles, Serena Williams is scheduled to make her comeback after giving birth to a daughter named Alexis in Sep 2017. She's missed the last four Grand Slams due to her pregnancy, but its no surprise to see her name sitting atop the bookies favourites for the Ladies' singles despite her extended break from the game. Can she hit top form at the right time to reclaim her Wimbledon title? The defending champion, Garbiñe Muguruza, missed the 2018 Australian Open due to injury and doubt remain about her fitness. Two-time (2011, 2014) Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitová ought to be able to put together a strong challenge and give Williams and Muguruza a run for their money.
