Novak Djokovic is the $2.80 favourite with Roger Federer ($4.00) and Rafael Nadal ($4.33) next in the market while hometown hero Andy Murray has been priced as a $7.50 chance.
“Bernard Tomic will want to forget Wimbledon this year but let’s not forget he made the quarter finals there in 2011,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes.
