Novak Djokovic vs. Roger Federer 2019 Wimbledon Final Betting Odds

Djokovic odds: -215
Federer odds: +178

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will continue their great rivalry on the biggest stage in tennis on Sunday.

Djokovic, the world’s No. 1 player currently, is a -215 favorite to win the match with Federer coming back as a +178 underdog. When you convert those odds to implied probability, Djokovic has a 65.5% chance of winning the match while Federer’s chances sit at 35.5%.

Federer, who qualified for the Final by defeating the other member of the sport’s “Big 3” Rafael Nadal, is aiming for his ninth Wimbledon title. This will be the Swiss Maestro’s 32nd trip to the finals of grand slam.

Djokovic has had a much easier path to the final than Federer. He punched his ticket to the finale with a victory over World No. 22 Roberto Bautista-Agut on Friday.

The 32-year-old native of Belgrade, Serbia is seeking his second straight Wimbledon title and his fifth overall. Djokovic came into the tournament as the outright favorite at the All England Club.

This is the first meeting between Federer and Djokovic in 2019. The two all-time greats played twice in 2018, with Djokovic taking both hard-court encounters.

Overall, Djokovic has the slight edge in the head-to-head battle with 25 wins against Federer’s 22. The Serb has also owned this series recently, having won five of their past six meetings.

This will be the fourth time that the two generational talents have met at the All England Club. Djokovic has won two of their three previous encounters at Wimbledon, including the most recent match in the 2015 Final.
