The gentlemen’s draw at Wimbledon was a four-horse race heading into Sunday, according to oddsmakers, but that’s no longer the case after Jannik Sinner defeated Carlos Alcaraz in the fourth round.

Alcaraz was in the +900 to +1000 odds range to be the champion of Wimbledon, but Sinner’s victory as a +230 underdog has made three candidates clear favorites above the rest.

Of course, one of those favorites, Novak Djokovic, is the greatest favorite by a considerable margin, but there are two that trail in his vicinity.

According to FanDuel, Djokovic is now -210 to win his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title.

He’s currently up on Tim van Rijthoven in the fourth round, and a loss there would be one of the biggest shocks of the century.

Rafael Nadal (+600) and Nick Kyrgios (+750) are the two players that are below +1000.

Nadal is a two-time champion, but he hasn’t won the Championships since 2010. He secured one of the greatest titles in the history of the event when he defeated Roger Federer in a blockbuster 2008 match.

Nadal is slated to face Botic van de Zandschulp in the fourth round.

Kyrgios got past Stefanos Tsitsipas in the third round, and he will be a tough out on grass. It’s the preferred surface of the big-serving Aussie, who made the quarterfinals in 2014 after defeating Nadal.

No one else is in the vicinity of the top trio, with Sinner the next-closest at +1800 and Cameron Norrie at +2700.
