Wimbledon Betting Odds Favor Federer As He Goes For Record
Wimbledon is one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world. There are no extra incentives that are needed for a player to want to win the event, but for Roger Federer, Sunday's final brings plenty.
Federer learned even before the tournament began that he would have his best chance to catch Pete Sampras as the all-time leader in Grand Slam wins. Rafael Nadal, the world's number one player, pulled out of Wimbledon with an injury, that left all players ranked below Federer between himself and history.
After disposing easily of his opponents up until now, Federer now has the record, and the number one ranking at stake when he meets US born Andy Roddick for the title on Sunday. A win, and it becomes a clean sweep for Federer.
"This could become one of the most historic matches in the history of men's tennis," said observer Mark Hamlin, "when Sampras broke the record, it was amazing, and now just a short time since the record was broken, we will get a chance to see it go down once again."
Federer has been installed as a heavy favorite to win the match and make history. Roddick, however, will be no push over. He has been playing the best tennis he has played in years, and he will be a formidable opponent for Federer.
The women's final was completed on Saturday and Serena Williams bested her sister, Venus, for her third Wimbledon title. It was the second straight year that the Williams sisters met for the title.
